If you’re engaged, you might be wondering if it’s time to hire a wedding planner. Well, let this be a sign to you, that it is probably time. I get it though, hiring a wedding planner isn’t necessarily “for everyone”. Hiring a wedding planner isn’t in every wedding budget. Here are 5 signs that it’s time to hire a wedding planner for your wedding.
This may come as a shock to some people, but not everyone enjoys wedding planning, and sometimes the excitement wears off shortly after the engagement begins. If you’re not feeling the joy anymore, and it has started to feel like work to you – it may be time to hire a wedding planner! Your engagement should be a happy time that you look back on fondly throughout your marriage. Instead, it often is a time that is looked back on with regrets and anxiety.
I can’t tell you how often I hear, “I have a wedding Pinterest board, and it is full of ideas! I just don’t know how to pull it all together into one cohesive event.” Babe, I get it! Pinterest can be overwhelming, and if you’re anything like me, you probably having ideas from middle school in your wedding pinterest board. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with ideas, it might be time to hire a planner who can help you sift through them, find ones that will work for your style, budget, venue, theme, and vendors, and will help turn the chaos into cohesive.
Babe, the thought of hiring the wrong team of vendors should scare you! You can find more on that in this post about the cost of hiring the wrong vendor team. Great wedding planners truly care about who is on your vendor team for your wedding day. Moreover, they will have the preferred vendor list to prove it! Their preferred vendor list should be a fairly short (aka: not overwhelming) list of wedding professionals who they have worked with in the past and they trust to care for your wedding day.
I feel this one deep in my soul. Yes, I am currently writing a blog. Yes, the blog will get posted to Pinterest. And yes, I will probably make a TikTok about it. But I am telling you like a friend, there is bad information out there – like, a lot of it. There’s a big difference between general counsel and specific counsel. Everything you read on the internet and see on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and TikTok is general counsel, but nothing can take the place of having someone in your corner, who knows your vision for your wedding plans, who has expert knowledge in the wedding industry.
This one should really encapsulate everyone who is engaged. I’m totally not judging, if you don’t want to enjoy the day, but if that’s the case, why have a wedding? If you want to enjoy your wedding day, it is time to hire a wedding planner. You can relax and trust that everything is taken care of for you. Wedding planners will take care of everything. The day is planned perfectly, and executed flawlessly. The vendor team was hand picked for you. The design was carefully crafted with your vision and your story in mind.
