We all know how stressful it can be to plan a wedding all on your own. There’s just so much, too much to take care of. Venue, solemnization, wedding videographers, photographers, florists… It’s like a never-ending list of to-dos, which can be daunting for newly-weds who are just looking to settle down and live happily ever after. More often than not, the stresses that goes behind planning a wedding makes the ending the best part of a wedding. Because only when it ends, can you begin a honeymoon life with your new partner hand-in-hand.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. A wedding is a celebration of a union, where two people come together to embrace a new beginning.
Planning a wedding on your own is like taking charge of a 300-men strong event all by yourself. Add on the pre-wedding jitters, having to shed pounds to fit into the dress, while still working OT…
Or you can save yourself all the trouble and hire a wedding planner for just $5000 (and above, depending on the size and demands of your wedding).
5 reasons why you should engage a wedding planner
A wedding planner can help you plan your timeline, starting from before the wedding, all through till the big day. This will give you an idea of when you need to start planning everything; when to hire a photographer, when to do pre-wedding shoot, etc. If this is your first time planning a wedding, then having someone give you some advice and a rough schedule of events will ease the pre-wedding stress.
No one wants to be bothered with calls from the hotel asking about this and that as close as one week nearing the wedding. It’s the biggest day of your life, and the weeks leading up to the big day can be stressful enough. Having a wedding planner is like hiring a personal assistant who will take care of everything for you, so you get to a happy, stress-free bride/groom on your wedding.
Pre-wedding blues! Wedding jitters! Wardrobe malfunction! According to Murphy’s Law, everything that can go wrong, will go wrong. The last thing you want is to freak out on the actual day, when your bouquet isn’t blooming well, or the corsages go missing. When you engage a wedding planner, he/she will be well-equipped to help you handle all these mishaps with all the experience they have had planning weddings.
2. A friend
There’s no better solace one can seek when it comes to pre-wedding jitters than her own best friend. When you work so closely with a planner in the months leading up to the wedding, your planner will eventually become like your best friend whom you can count on for all your rollercoaster emotions leading up to the big day. A planner has probably seen countless others like you, and will gladly nurse your anxious soul back to health.
