To Hire a Wedding Planner or Do it Yourself? That is the Question

To Hire a Wedding Planner or Do it Yourself? That is the Question

You can spend hours on research and writing things down when you choose DIY planning.

A person’s wedding day is undeniably one of their most memorable days (if not the most important day). Finding a soulmate to spend forever with is an accomplishment that many people hope to achieve. Since a wedding holds so much significance, it takes a lot of planning to ensure your special day is magical. In the past, we’ve covered whether you should cook yourself or hire a caterer. Today, we’re going to discuss DIY planning and why it’s beneficial to hire a wedding planner. 

Wedding Planners Have Connections and Experience 

Wedding planners can help keep all the details of your ceremony together. They also know what vendors to collaborate with to bring your vision to life. Planners build relationships with other experts. They understand who’s reliable and reputable and can offer excellent service. One tremendous benefit of hiring a planner is that it helps you save hours on research. While planners can guide you in the direction, you are still empowered to make decisions. Overall, a planner:

  • Knows What Questions to Asks
  • Understands the Ins and Outs of Contracts
  • Is Knowledgable about meeting schedules

Friends and family can be helpful, indeed, but they may not have the same connections. 

DIY Planning Can Be Costly

Every couple has a budget, or at least they should. When you attempt to do it all yourself, this can become pretty expensive. A wedding planner has connections to many vendors that may be able to cut them a deal. Wedding planners are also knowledgable about the costs of products. They can help you keep things in perspective, prioritize what matters to you the most, and help you not break the bank. Planners don’t only plan things, but they solve problems. They are well-equipped to solve last-minute issues that would probably cause you frustration if you had to handle it alone.
