Wedding Wednesday weekly reason to hire a Wedding Planner/Coordinator-minimize your stress. Looking back to last week’s reason, to save time, when you save your time (because let’s be honest, our time is valuable!), you automatically minimize your stress. If you outsource your planning, you gain time for a glass of wine with your fiancé, a cup of coffee with a friend you didn’t think you had time for, and your wedding planning becomes fun-not a stressor. Another time to be honest- wedding planning generally comes with an inherent amount of stress. You have so many things to do in so little time. You have multiple people telling you what you should be doing and everyone wants to put their two cents in.
Your planner is on your side.
Once you have an idea of what you want in your wedding day, you can discuss with your planner who will then do your research, present you with options, and then let you decide what is best for you. Instead of being thrown several ideas that are what other people want your wedding day to be, your planner takes your personalities, your wish lists, and puts together an event that is uniquely you (quite a cliche saying but it really does have a ring, doesn’t it?!)
If your planner isn’t with you from day one of planning but is there to take over during the last month or two for “day of” work- you can take a deep breath and relax a little during the home stretch while you wait to walk down the aisle (or hallway, field, barn, wherever you decide to tie the knot). On the proper day of, you truly do not have to worry about the logistics. Your only concern is showing up and having the time of your life. And hey, if something happens with your transportation to where you may be running late, don’t worry, your planner will have a back-up plan waiting so you don’t actually have to worry about that either.
Sounds pretty great, huh? While the cost of hiring a wedding planner is a complete luxury and frequently overlooked, it’s also one of the best investments you can make in yourself, your fiancé, and your family, for a day that you will remember and cherish forever*.
P.S. This couple had a planner and look how stress-free they are!
*Disclaimer: We are not saying by hiring a planner you will feel zero stress, because-YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED! It’s a crazy, exciting, exhilarating, amazing time. There will be some stress, but with a planner, you won’t remember the stress. You’ll remember all the good 🙂
