Do I need a wedding planner?
One of our brides recently said that she always knew she needed a wedding planner but she also knew there would be that moment when she would also say- THIS is why I hired a weddingplanner!! For her, this moment came when the family askedher and her fiance to have a floor installed for their wedding tent. Not a huge task and certianly something we can handle but for her it was the straw tha broke the camels back so to speak. We handled it, added it to her order and tweaked her budget to fit this in. Met with her to calm her nerves and made it work with our friends at Exeter Events & Tents and Seacoast Sperry. We just made it happen and took the stress off of her shoulders and kept the planning fun.
People hire wedding and event planners for all sorts for reasons. Some want to be involved in their planning but just need a gentle nudge as to where to start while others want nothing to do with it at all. Some hire a wedding planner to truly have a partner with all of the wedding planner and know that the day of the wedding someone will have their back and execute their wedding exaclty as they wish. As different as our weding couples are, so are their planning needs. So do you need a wedding planner? Yes! You do.
Going it alone is like starting a brand new job in an unfamilar field and immediatly having the biggest project/assignment of your career without any training or experience. You wouldn't be at your best and you will probably be stressed to the max.
Now lots of epopel are going to read this and say- nope- I do not need a planner! I can do this myself. I plan things, I am organized, I do not need to spend the money. To that I say, I am 100% sure you are physially capable of planning a wedding but do you have the time? Do you have the connections of knowing where to start and who to call? Do you have your emergency backup plan in place in case something goes wrong on the wedding day? Do you want to be truouble shooting things or setting up decor on the day of your wedding?
Or, do you want a professional to help? Do you want to have omseone on your team that you can turn to along the way to help you? To have your back and serve as your insider to the industry?
Do you want to be a guest at your own wedding?
So yeah, you need a wedding planner.

Love your analogy about planning a wedding being like starting a brand new job, that is so accurate! So many people don't realize that a wedding planner isn't just there to take over your wedding (unless you want them to, of course!), but to be their advocate and partner, making sure that the vision in their head is translated into real life!

Agree with Renee!! So many of my early clients said to me "I don't really feel like I need a planner" and then after the day said how it was the best decision they ever made and they can't believe they even considered not having one! It's definitely something you don't value until it's all said and done!
