Do You Need to Hire a Wedding Planner?

Aug 18, 2007
Couples who are planning for a wedding might have the following question, "Do I need to hire a wedding planner?" In fact it should be very enjoyable to plan the wedding yourselves. Some may even think that a wedding planner is only someone who wants to get some money out of their pockets and they will plan the wedding on their own.

In fact, a wedding planner is not someone who will do everything for you. You cannot just sit down and wait for the results. The wedding planner is meant to be helping you and giving you the most suitable and professional advices during your wedding planning. At the end of the day you still have to make the decisions yourselves. In some cases the wedding planner may even help you to saving money for your wedding.

One of the jobs of a wedding planner is to help you to compare different options for your wedding items. Since they are actively involved in the wedding industry, they will know which companies can fulfill your requirements. With the help of your wedding planner, you do not need to approach shop after shop. Instead, he / she will suggest a few wedding vendors to you and you can just visit these shops.

You may want to have a really modern Chinese style wedding invitation for example. After surfing and searching on the web for hours you may still be unable to find a shop which offers such wedding invitations. Your wedding planner, however, may have already known some shops which provide these wedding cards. They can just suggest these shops to you and this saves you a lot of time for searching. In most cases the wedding planner will accompany you to these shops and give you extra advices.

Besides, a wedding planner can help you to keep the schedules well. You may need to prepare the wedding invitation a year and take some wedding photos three months before your wedding. The schedules are so tight and there are so many items involved. You may forget some of the essential items you need to prepare for the wedding.

In this case the wedding planner can remind you if it is time for you to prepare an item. Since they are professional and have been dealing with lots of wedding planning jobs before. They will know what and when you need to do something from their experiences.

The wedding planner can also help you a lot on the wedding day. You may be already very nervous on the wedding day. Any minor mistakes may make you lose your temper. Although it is the "job" of the bride and groom to become the happiest couple on the wedding day, we sometimes just cannot control our tempers due to the mistakes.

Your planner can help you to take care of all the minor details and try their best to avoid any mistake. He / she will be taking care of the wedding rundown, reminding the staff of the wedding venues how to server the guests and even helping you to get some more liquors if you are running out of wine.

Of course you may not need a wedding planner if you have friends who are experienced in wedding planning. For sure they can help you a lot in planning your wedding but in this case they indeed become your wedding planners. If your friends are not available to help and your budget is allowed, you are still advised to hire a wedding planner.
