Why Hiring A Wedding Planner Will Prevent These 7 Wedding Day Disasters

Organising your own wedding can seem like a daunting task. And if you have never planned a wedding before then why not consider hiring a wedding planner?

You might think they will cost you a fortune, but ultimately they will save you money.

1. Plan Your Budget

The first thing your wedding planner will do is to work out your budget and discuss your wish list with you.

She will then decide what your priorities are and where you can save money.

2. Plan A Guest List And Find A Venue

It will be up to you to set the date for your wedding and arrange your church and your planner will help you to organise your guest list. She will then set to work to find a reception venue for the date you’ve arranged and negotiate a price on your behalf.

And if you are having a sit-down meal, she will meet with you and organise a seating plan.

3. When You Arrive At The Church

Your planner will have meticulously arranged the timings of your ceremony and checked that all the decorations at the church are perfect. And once she has made certain all your guests are seated she will hightail it on to the reception.

4. The Reception

It is generally thought that up to 50% of a couple’s wedding budget is eaten up by the reception. But this is an area where your planner will really work her magic. She will plan your reception from start to finish and take care of everything including:

  • caterers and menu
  • flowers
  • wedding cake
  • table decorations
  • getting guests from the church to the reception

5. Hire A Photographer

A good wedding planner will have a list of wedding photographers that she regularly works with, and so will be able to get special rates. Your photographer is one of the most important people on your wedding day.

He will be the one who will capture the special moments that you will always want to look back on through the coming years. His pictures will allow you to share your special day with future generations.

6. Music

Most people agree that live music is best at wedding receptions. So once again your planner will have groups and bands that she works with regularly. You just need to decide on the type of music you would like to have.

Bear in mind some of your guests will be elderly and not everyone enjoys jazz or rock n’ roll, so it’s probably best to have a mix of music from the 60’s to the present day. Once you have decided your planner will do the rest.

7. At The End Of The Day

When your perfect day comes to an end and you have been waved off on your honeymoon, your planner will make sure everything is cleared away and will arrange for all the wedding presents to be delivered to the home of the bride and groom on their return.

Hiring a wedding planner will mean you can arrive at the church on your wedding day feeling completely stress-free. You can sure every little thing is being taken care of and nothing is left to chance, thanks to your wedding planner.
