#1 You don’t know where to begin
Planning a wedding is a mammoth task and it’s not for the faint of heart. With photographers, venues, budgets and dresses to contend with, finding a starting point can be an arduous task. If you don’t know where to begin, it might be time to enroll the help of a wedding planner. With years of experience under their belt, they can get their teeth stuck into it. That way, you can start making headway on planning your big day.
#2 You’re putting it off
If you know where to start but are anxious about how you’re going to execute it, it might be something you’re putting off for a later date. Well, tomorrow isn’t going to get the job done so it may be time to call in a specialist.
#3 It’s taking over your life
Perhaps you’re on the other end of the spectrum and trying to tackle every last detail to the point where it has completely taken over your life. Wedding planning can be stressful and no doubt you are feeling the effects. If you are living, eating and breathing wedding planning, it’s time to offload the burden.
#4 You’re turning into a bridezilla
There’s no two ways about it, wedding planning is stressful and with so many people having an opinion on your big day, it’s no wonder it drives us to the brink of insanity so if you’re feeling like you’re about to blow, enlist the help of a planner who can tackle the issues without you even knowing about it. Let them take control of certain situations and you can maintain your strong bonds with family and friends.
#5 You’re not very organised
If your life is busy and slightly chaotic, tasking yourself with planning your own wedding is likely to tip you over the edge so if you lead a busy lifestyle and you know you’re going to have limited time to dedicate to it, it’s probably best to enlist a planner right from the off.
#6 You keep overspending
If you’ve set yourself a budget but are really struggling to keep within it, enlist the help of a wedding professional who has the knowledge of where you can find dress outlets, cheaper decorations and can even offer you discounted supplier prices as they work in partnership with them. They’re already built up the necessary relationships to get discounted rates or even a few freebies thrown in.
#7 You can’t find suitable suppliers
Finding a suitable photographer is much more than finding a photographer. You have fine art wedding photographers, reportage wedding photographers and quirky wedding photographers to name a few! And this is the same for all other wedding suppliers. Even planners specialize in different areas so finding one that perfectly matches your unique requirements can prove a challenge. A wedding professional will already have a number of contacts on their books and will be able to match you up with your perfect wedding vendor.
