You’ve just got engaged! Congratulations!

Once you’re past the initial excitement, you’ll think about planning your wedding. There are all sorts of guides on what should be done 12 months before, what you need to do six months before, and what can be left until the week before. Suddenly, it becomes a minefield and you may look at hiring a wedding planning instead.

Hiring a wedding planner could be one of the best decisions you ever make. Your wedding becomes something that you can just enjoy, leaving all the tricky bits to the professionals. Here are the top four benefits of hiring a wedding planner.

They’ll Keep Track of Deadlines

Need to know when your venue deposit needs to be paid? Tracking when all the RSVPs need to be in? Have a date to pay the final floral bill? There are many dates and deadlines you’ll need to keep track of when planning your wedding.

This becomes a stressful time, but you don’t need to let it be like that. When you hire a planner, they keep track of all the deadlines for you. They’ll chase the vendors if a deadline isn’t met and they can keep track of food orders and venue needs.

They Already Have the Contacts

When you start planning your own wedding, you need to think about finding the best people for your needs. You want to get the best venue, find a florist, consider a DJ, book a wedding photographer, and so much more. What if someone already knew the best people to turn to?

That’s instantly where wedding planners come in. The biggest benefit is that a good wedding planner already has the contacts. Plus, a good planner will be able to get you a discount on the services due to the recommendation.

They Can Craft the Vision

If you get a full-service wedding planner, your wedding can be organized from start to finish. All you’ll need to do is share what you would like or the rough idea you have and the wedding planner can get to work.

Good wedding planners will help you choose colour schemes, themes, décor needs, and much more. They’ll help craft every element of your wedding, playing attention to the details.

They’ll Coordinate on the Day

While you’ll have groomsmen, bridesmaids, and ushers who can all help, the last thing you want to do is manage phone calls from the vendors on your wedding day. This is another one of the top benefits of hiring a wedding planner. They’re there for you on the day of the wedding.
