The 3 Main Reasons You Need a Wedding Planner

The 3 Main Reasons You Need a Wedding Planner

Let’s be honest. Theoretically we could list thousands of reasons why you need to hire a wedding planner. You can read tons of articles on the subject and speak to as many brides as you want – you only truly understand what it takes to plan a wedding once you’re engaged. Our founders, Megan and Lindy, have seen it all when it comes to planning. But what really opened their eyes was the moment they, quite literally, put themselves in the brides’ shoes at their respective weddings.

There will be things that didn’t go according to plan. Certain visions you had of the day won’t materialise the way you wanted them to – and that’s okay. We guess this is why having a planner by your side is crucial. You don’t want to wish the time away so that you don’t have to feel the stress and pressure of wedding planning. Our job is to make this time enjoyable, bearable and something you’ll always remember, for the right reasons.

Here are the main reasons why you need us by your side every step of the way.

Budget, budget, budget
Unless your name is Prince William or Kate Middleton, we’re assuming you don’t have $34 million to spend on your upcoming nuptials. That’s totally fine! As your planner, we’ll not only ensure that we stick to your budget but we’ll also guide you on how much things should cost. If you really want a band but it’s taking up too much of the budget, we can advise alternatives or recommend suppliers that won’t charge an arm and a leg. We’ll also spend time finding out your must-haves versus the nice-to-haves, so you get everything you wanted on the day.

We keep you on track

On that note, your vision often changes while you’re planning a wedding. In the beginning you get an idea of what you want and as the day approaches, you may see something else you like. That’s okay! You’ve got other things going on. You’re dealing with bridesmaids, mothers, fathers, aunties, and cousins. Our focus is simple: You and your wedding. We’ll remind you of your initial vision and keep you on track in terms of those must-haves and nice-to-haves. Again, we’re here to advise and support you throughout the process. As long as you’re stress-free, we know we’re doing our job!

We’re there on the day
The one thing you cannot prepare for is how you’ll feel on the day. Some brides are completely calm and collected, others not so much. Most brides will tell you they don’t really remember walking down the aisle. It’s your wedding day and it’s overwhelming! With your planner by your side, you don’t have to worry about the schedule and if the suppliers have done their job. We’re running around, while you’re focusing on the moment. You deserve to be completely in that moment.

We really could go on about the importance of having a wedding planner. But ultimately we’re here so you can focus on the essential stuff – being engaged, preparing for a lifetime with your partner and loving every moment. Keep calm and call our team. We offer full co-ordination or partial co-ordination, if you only need help on the day. Let us make your wedding memorable.

Until next time, stay sane.
