Your Wedding On a Budget…
Do Wedding Planners Really Help?
By Whitney Acke
You just got engaged! The ring is beautiful, the love
of your life is hugging you, and all you can think of is
how you must start planning right away! Most brides wait
about ten minutes after they get engaged to start thinking
about wedding plans. Let’s face it; planning a wedding
is not an easy task. It can be really stressful to make
sure every little detail is covered and accounted for.
That is why many brides choose to get a wedding planner.
If you have seen the movies, you know that wedding planners
should be the perfect way to plan a stress-free wedding.
Of course, that is not always how it works.
The trick is to get a really professional wedding planner.
A professional wedding planner will make sure everything
goes off without a glitch on your wedding day. But, if
you choose to use a friend or someone just starting out
in the business, you might be causing yourself more stress
by having a wedding planner than you would without one!
Certain people need wedding planners more than others.
Are you constantly working? Are you planning your wedding
in less than four months?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions,
you might want to get a wedding planner to help you out.
The last thing you want to do is feel overwhelmed by planning
and not enjoy the thrills of being engaged and getting
Wedding planners are typically not cheap to hire. So you
need to think about that before you choose to hire one!
If you think you won’t be able to afford a wedding
planner, choose to buy a wedding planner book instead.
There are fabulous books out there that will help you with
every step of planning your wedding. They have timelines
and lists for each month, which will help you stay on task,
get everything done, and stay stress-free and in control
of your wedding plans!
