What an exciting time to get married! The happy couple has more resources now than ever before to experience the wedding of their dreams. From Pinterest to Etsy to Wedding Wire, we not only have the opportunity to gain insight on the latest and most glamorous trends but we can also read real reviews on the best vendors for our big day.
As beneficial as these resources are, they are not the brains behind these masterpiece weddings, but are simply basic guides to give the couple ideas.
After the proposal, the first step a couple usually takes is selecting a time frame for when they want to tie the knot. What happens after the first of many decisions? Don’t become overwhelmed! A professional wedding planner has the experience and expertise to guide and educate you in the right direction.
The first thing many couples cross off of their list when deciding their budget is hiring a planner. Unfortunately, most couples only see the big picture and not the small (and many) details that go into designing it.
Imagine this: A team has no coach. They are capable of leading most of their practices, but game day comes and the team struggles with trying to coach and play at the same time. If the team invested more money in hiring a coach over selecting the best uniforms and tastiest thirst quenchers, they would have the results they had hoped for rather than a bunch of nice things thrown together, with a loss instead of a win.
Okay, maybe this is a completely different scenario than your wedding day, but it does make sense when you think about it. Without a planner, you may have a beautiful wedding, but you may risk not being able to enjoy your big night because of the stresses of having to make sure everything is set up and going as planned throughout the night.
We provide you with the top five reasons we believe having a planner is essential in guaranteeing that you are a guest at your wedding, and not just the host.
