#1 You deserve to have everything perfect on your big day.
It takes a lot of time and effort into planning and pulling together you wedding perfectly, and by hiring a wedding planner who has organised a wedding hundreds of times and with practise comes perfection. Wedding planners also know the right people to talk to, how to get you the best prices and also be able to check your contracts are all proper and correct. This will ensure that detail of your day runs perfectly.
#2 You're not the best at sticking to budgets.
Think of your wedding planner as a financial adviser who deals with weddings. They know how much things should cost, what percentage of your budget should be spent on each part of the event and also when payment should be made in order to secure services or products.
#3 Your wedding planning should be enjoyable not stressful.
Wedding planning should be enjoyable. You shouldn't have to be running around turning into a bridezilla and not able to think,eat or sleep about anything other than your wedding! A wedding planners job is to look after everything and make it as stress free as possible so all you have to worry about is taking care of yourself and enjoying your engagement period.
#4 You dont want to spend time searching for suppliers and working out who is trustworthy.
Knowing who to trust and who will make your wedding perfect is a daunting task. There are so many wedding suppliers out there you may not know where to start. Once you find a great wedding planner however the rest is simple. They will be able to guide you in the right direction and use suppliers they have used before and trust and know how to get their best prices and quality from them.
#5 You dont want to worry about forgetting to plan or pay for something
Wedding check lists can be pages and pages long, no wonder you might be worrying about forgetting to pay for something. A good wedding planner know what needs to be done like the back of their hand. They will keep track of deadlines and payment dates so you wont need to worry about something not turning up.
#6 You both work and you dont want wedding planning to take over your life
Wedding planning can take up a lot of time. But hiring a wedding planner is like having your own personal assistant whose sole responsibility is your wedding.
#7 You have a great venue coordinator but they dont take care of any of the other details
Having a great venue coordinator is a wonderful thing but keep in mind that arranging the venue is as far as their services stretch. Wedding planners are able to help with budgets, mediate family disputes, help you with flowers, dress shopping, take you to meet suppliers and anything else you may wish!
#8 You need help making your vision a reality
If you know exactly what you want or you have no idea, a wedding planner can help bring your vision to life. Whether its through mood boards, flicking through magazines together or simply having a conversation. Wedding planners know the latest trends in the industry and will make your vision a reality.
#9 Your struggling to meet the demands of your family and friends.
Does your family have their own ideas of what your wedding should be like? Many brides have to deal with a swarm of requests and ideas from family and friends into what 'they think' is best for your wedding. This can obviously be very stressful! A wedding planner will be able to deal with these expectations and show them available options on their ideas.
#10 Your planning a wedding somewhere other than where you live.
Planning a destination is hard especially when you've never met your suppliers and are trying to imagine a space you've never been too. By hiring a wedding planner with experience of planning abroad they may have a trick or two for getting the job done the way you want it!
