Welcome to the first of the Wedding Wednesday Blogs to help create a better picture of what a planner does and how they can help engaged couples create their perfect day.
For purposes of understanding the order of these reasons each week, the reasons are not necessarily in order of importance as each reason for wanting a planner by your side throughout the wedding planning process and the day of the wedding may be different to each person.
Today’s first reason is to save time. We are all busy; busy with life, with work, with finding free time, hobbies, working out, taking care of children (or fur children if no human children are in the picture), and so many other things. Adding wedding planning to the mix can sometimes feel like a full-time job in itself-especially if you don’t know where to begin.
The best of planners, including those at the City Social team, don’t only have previous hands-on experience, but they have also invested several hours and days worth of time furthering their education on their work flow and how to streamline the process of your wedding planning. By hiring a planner, you are not giving away full rights to your big day, rather you are getting someone on your side to help you plan efficiently from step one to “I do” and thereafter. Planners help you make those big decisions, they point you in the right direction, and they make sure things happen when they are supposed to.
Wedding planners take something that could take up a stressful 10-20 hours per week and turn it into something that is more manageable. Depending on the couple it may be 1-5 hours per week of fun interactive planning. City Social Couples also have the added experience of personal client logins so no matter what, you know what stage of the planning is taking place. You’re never out of the loop and you’re never wasting time.
Speaking of time- this is all about the wedding day, right?! Well, wedding planners keep working so on your wedding day, you don’t miss a single moment of the start of your new journey together as a couple. You can spend time celebrating with your friends, family, new spouse, and never have to worry or take the time to make sure things are on track. With a planner on your side, they will be.
