For anyone wondering if you should hire a wedding planner, here are some examples of when you should be hiring one.

It doesn’t necessarily have to be that you’re completely lost while planning your wedding. There are lots of other times that hiring a wedding planner will drastically help you out.


1. You have everything organized, and you don’t need any help with the planning process…

But you want someone to look over the details on the day of your wedding.

Wedding planners are the perfect person to hire in situations where you don’t want to worry about anything on the day of your wedding. They don’t have to help you plan every stage to help you out with this requirement! This is called Day-of Coordination or Month-of Coordination.

2. You are unsure about the wedding vendors in your area.

Most wedding planners have consultations packages that can assist you with finding that perfect wedding vendor! You do not always have to hire them for your actual wedding. Most weddings planners charge you an hourly rate for these types of jobs. We are also very aware of the costs of wedding vendors, so we can help you grasp what each vendor will charge before you start contacting them.

3. You do not want your family to do anything at your wedding.

Wedding planners can be the person to set up your décor (most planners even have a package where you can hire them to just set up the décor). They can be the person that runs errands on the day of your wedding. They can be the person that is there verifying that everything is in order. There is no reason your family and friends should have to work on your wedding day.




4. You are stressed out and need someone to help you.

Wedding planners are able to relieve a lot of stress because they can do most of the work for you. Sit back and enjoy this special time!

5. You need someone to keep you on track.

Wedding planners make a timeline for you so that things get done. Each month they cross something off your to-do list and keep you on track.

6. You aren’t very good with sticking to your budget.

Wedding planners can not only help you stick to your budget with reminders, but in certain situations they can also recommend different vendors that meet your criteria and are less expensive.
You don’t want wedding planning to take over your life.
