With so many chores to do when planning a wedding, it is tempting to hire a professional wedding planner. After all, this is your wedding, and you want it to be the most amazing day of your life. This isn’t an easy experience. Why not solicit the help of someone who does this for a living to alleviate the pressure? Hiring a professional wedding planner will come with a price. Before you run to the nearest professional wedding planner, take a good look at the collection of duties needed in order to pull off a successful, beautiful wedding.
Church weddings entail several elements. You will be required to provide baptism certificates, choose between confetti and biodegradable rice. Then you must think about sitting your guests- ushers, bridesmaids, best men, music, hairstyles, flower girls, wardrobe, and rings. Don’t forget the wedding vows, and all the rehearsals. If you are having a non-traditional wedding setting, there are other factors to consider.
For the reception, you must find the right venue and the right caterer. You must also plan the menu, the bar, the service, flowers, favors, and the wedding reception activities. All the while, you hope that everything comes out smoothly. Don’t forget the wedding cake and arranging delivery.
There are so many wedding photographers and videographers to choose from. Also think of transportation for the marrying couple and those visiting. You will also need to choose wedding invitations and figure out how to properly word them. Who are you going to invite? Where are the people from out of town going to stay?
Take a deep breath. Are you getting stressed out yet? And this is only the tip of the iceberg. It is no wonder why people choose destination weddings as they are easier to plan and much, much cheaper. They are so appealing for many couples, desiring a less stressful and less traditional location.
The only thing that might be holding you back in hiring a wedding planner is your wedding budget. Take a good look at your budget and see if there is any room for adjustments. Consider that a professional wedding planner knows where to get the best deals. Look on wedding boards and ask newlywed brides what type of savings they were able to get via their wedding planner. Without a person like this, things can get overwhelming very fast. You don’t want to create a nightmare situation on your special day. A wedding planner will hold your hand through thick and thin during these stressful times. If you opt to do it yourself, you can delegate responsibilities to your friends. This is supposed to be the most memorable day of your life. Relax and enjoy the best day of your life!
