Are you thinking about investing in a wedding planner? If so, you’re not alone. More couples than ever are turning to professionals to help them navigate planning their extra-special day. But, like most things in life, working with a wedding planner isn’t without its skeptics. Here, we bust three of the top myths about wedding planners – so you can make your own informed decision.
1. Myth #1 – Wedding Planners are Too Expensive
It’s true that wedding planners don’t come cheap, but you get what you pay for. With their extensive network of contacts and insider know-how, wedding planners can often save couples money in the long run by making sure you get the maximum return for your budget. They also know how to stick to a budget without compromising your dream day, and they have a much better sense of the expenses that are often hidden or overlooked, so you don’t over-invest too early in your process. In fact, working with a wedding planner could actually save you money in the long run.
2. Myth #2 – Wedding Planners will Take Over your Vision
No one knows what you want for your wedding like you do, and that includes wedding planners! A professional is there to help you bring your vision to life, not take it over. They’ll work closely with you to understand exactly what you want and how best to achieve it. Ultimately, a wedding planner should enhance your plans – not replace them.
3. Myth #3 – You Don’t Need a Wedding Planner if You’re DIY-ing
DIY weddings can be great, but they’re a lot of work! From researching suppliers to finding the perfect venue, it’s no wonder couples turn to professionals for help. Wedding planners are experts in all things wedding-related and can help you save time and money by doing the heavy lifting for you. So even if you’re planning a DIY wedding, it might be worth considering hiring a planner to help you stay organized and on top of everything. At the very least, we really recommend hiring a coordinator to ensure your decor is set up just as you would like it!
