There’s no sugar coating it, planning a wedding is stressful business. In fact, a recent survey discovered that 96% of couples said they felt more stressed out planning their wedding than compared to buying a house or finding a new job…yikes!
So what’s to keep you from settling for a quick elopement at the courthouse? A dream team of vendors by your side of course! Whether you want help planning from the start, or you’re more of a day-of coordinator kinda bride, know that your wedding day doesn’t have to be a stress-filled, pull-out-all-your-hair kind of experience. Below are 5 reasons why you should consider hiring a planner, like, right now.
KEEP TRACK OF THE DETAILS
While some parts of planning deserve your full attention, you can leave the not-so-fun stuff to the planner. From managing spreadsheets to communicating with vendors, and even planning the wedding timeline, it’s their job to coordinate all the extra details so nothing is forgotten. So your time is better left to things you really want to focus on, like dress shopping for you and your girls, or going cake tasting (yum!).
HELP YOU STAY ON BUDGET
This might seem counterintuitive, but a planner can actually help save you money in the long run. They’ll calculate your budget to make sure every expense is covered, including things you might not think of, like tipping. So unless you love to do math and make endless spreadsheets, leaving this to a professional is your best bet for staying on budget, while saving your sanity.

ACCESS TO AMAZING VENDORS
Finding the right vendors can be a little intimidating. Luckily, your planner will more than likely have some great referrals within your budget, so you can have the wedding you want with trusted professionals (BTW, have you see our vendor guide yet?). One thing to note, some planners get referral fees from vendors, but you can rest assured they’ll more than likely avoid referring bad vendors. Their reputation is on the line after all.
STRESS-FREE WEDDING DAY
Now imagine a worry-free, care-free wedding day where the only thing you have to remember is your vows. That’s a gift in itself ladies and gents. No joke! Wedding day stress kills. So avoid it entirely with the help of a planner. All the last minute stuff is their concern, and if anything does go wrong, you’ll be the last to know about it.
OFFER A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
With so many Pinterest wedding ideas floating around right now, it’s a little overwhelming to come up with something that’s truly unique. And no bride wants to hear, “Nice Pinterest wedding” on her big day (true story, this happened to me...) Luckily, a planner can help you think of some unique ideas so you don’t fall victim to the typical Pinterest decor, all while ensuring your wedding vision turns out the way to want it.
