Why You Should Hire A Wedding Planner

Getting engaged and planning your wedding is one of life’s absolute joys, but let’s face it the planning process can at times be pretty stressful. From setting the date, securing the venue you’ve always dreamed of to knowing which suppliers are reputable and reliable to dealing with inevitable family politics – there’s a lot to consider and a lot that can make the journey feel less than joyous! 

I get a lot of questions about why people would pay me or any wedding planner for that matter to plan their wedding when they could do this themselves. This question doesn’t offend me and it absolutely is perfectly acceptable and more than possible to plan your own wedding. However, there are many benefits to hiring a professional planner to organise your big day!

By hiring a professional planner you are not only employing someone to deal with the stress that can come with planning a wedding, you are also gaining access to tried and trusted suppliers, potential discounts on bookings, someone who will deal with negotiations and bookings including any issues on your behalf and someone who will become your friend and confidante throughout your planning journey. 

So let’s be frank, why pay me to do something you can do yourself?

  1. Planning is my passion and I’m really, really good at it! 
  2. I have a network of trusted and reputable suppliers who will make your dreams come true. 
  3. I am a skilled negotiator and influencer who will get you the best possible deal to fit your budget.
  4. Give me your theme and ideas and I will add every little finishing touch that you can think of to make your day perfect and something your nearest and dearest will talk about for years to come! 
  5. I will deal with any issues, problems, cancellations, suppliers who aren’t giving you the attention you deserve and ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish. 
  6. I will be there on the day to make sure all you have to do is relax and enjoy every second – no one needs to deal with questions or problems on their wedding day (believe me I know, because I had to!)
  7. Do you really have time to research, speak to and negotiate with lots of different suppliers whilst also juggling life? Maybe I hear you say, but do you really want to? No? I didn’t think so! 

Hiring me to plan your wedding may be an added expense to your already overwhelming budget, but believe me it is money well spent and will make your experience much more enjoyable.
