Why Hire a Wedding Planner

Do I need a wedding planner?

Still confused if you should hire a wedding planner for your wedding? Well, here are some pointers to help you figure out why and when do you need a wedding planner

Beautiful, elegant, fun...weddings are supposed to be all this and more. Imagine a flower themed wedding where every pillar, table, chair at the wedding venue is elegantly rolled up in flowers of your choice. The mandap looks like a dream come true and the bride looks like a million bucks. She looks ethereal in her designer wedding dress and flawless make up. The parents of the bride and the groom are attending to their guests with a peaceful smile on their face and the guests are admiring the decoration, the warm hospitality and concern for their happiness by the hosts.

Do you think all this would be possible without the help of a wedding planner? A person qualified and experienced to do the job can actually do the job better than inexperienced people like the hosts. Yet, people think they can do without paying extra to a wedding planner.

Why do you need a wedding planner?

When as the bride or the groom you are neck deep into looking at every little detail, you end up looking like a haggard and have no fun on your own wedding either. It always makes sense to have someone plan your wedding for you. Gone are the days when a joint family system had you covered. With loads of people at home to do the running around for the wedding, the bride and the groom could rest. But now, with the nuclear family system being the norm of the day, managing an entire wedding perfectly is not a joke.

One reason why people don’t hire a wedding planner is related to money. They think, ‘why pay the wedding planner when we can do everything in a budget’? But that’s exactly why you should hire a wedding planner. The best thing about a wedding planner is that he can deliver in any budget you want, even if it is a budget wedding.

When should you hire a wedding planner?

Anytime you plan to have a wedding, ideally. A wedding planner works in your budget with predetermined roles and responsibilities. It is his job to ensure every little detail is taken care of, there are no last minute surprises, unpleasant that is.

If you think you don’t need a wedding planner for the entire wedding, you could look at hiring one for just one of the functions like sangeet or mehndi or wedding itself or may be the reception and cocktails.

If you are planning a destination wedding, you can and must hand over all the nittygritties to a wedding planner and enjoy the destination and the wedding instead of constantly being on the phone or working with the vendors round the clock.

Last minute wedding? Think no more, call up a wedding planner who with his vast network of vendors will make it look like a breeze!
