If you’re wondering why you should hire a Wedding Planner and if it will be worth it, then read on for why I think having someone to help organise and coordinate your wedding day is invaluable.

Hiring a Wedding Planner is becoming a growing trend in the UK, but there’s still some confusion as to what a Wedding Planner actually does and if it will be too expensive. As a Wedding Planner based in Somerset in the UK, check out the services I offer to get an idea on what packages are available and approximate prices. There are so many benefits to hiring a Wedding Planner, from saving you time and making your wedding planning experience much less stressful, to putting you in touch with the best vendors in your area, to being able to give you some fresh and exciting ideas you can use for your wedding.

Still not convinced that hiring a Wedding Planner is necessary? Have a look at the list below for some of the key reasons why you should!

Save Time

This is probably the most obvious one! Planning a wedding can be one of the most stressful and time-consuming things you ever do. Hiring a Wedding Planner can save you so much time on the admin side of wedding planning and will take away all the little details that can end up taking so much of your time. Do you have a busy work life or other commitments? Let a Planner take away the added stress of planning a wedding, leaving you free to enjoy the parts that really matter to you.

Save Money

Money can be one of the reasons some people think they SHOULDN’T hire a Wedding Planner as it can seem like an added cost. But the opposite is actually true. Planners are your wedding budget gurus! You don’t need me to tell you that weddings are expensive, and sticking to the budget was one of the things that couples often say they struggled with the most. Planners know all the tips and tricks to protect your budget, plus they have a wealth of industry contacts they can negotiate better prices with on your behalf. When you work with a Planner, they’ll be able to calculate what areas your money should be spent on based on things like your guest count. With the money they can save you, Planners often pay for themselves.

Save Your Relationship

Planning a wedding can undoubtedly put a lot of strain on a couple when you should be celebrating one of the biggest moments of your relationship! Which is exactly why you should hire a Wedding Planner. A Planner will get to know both of your likes and dislikes and find a compromise to meet both of your needs and will also free up time for you to enjoy the days leading up to your wedding instead of you drowning in admin.

Save Your Sanity

Wedding stress is real and the little details can take up so much of your time, a job that seems easy may take forever to get the desired result and then there are the little elements you may not have even thought about at all will you have you tearing your hair out. It's enough to drive anyone crazy! But Wedding Planners are experts in covering all bases and know how to do it in the most efficient way, it will take a huge weight off of your shoulders and make sure everything is taken care of so your day goes as smoothly as possible.

Turn Your Dreams into Reality

Even the ugliest venue can become a palace with a Wedding Planner's know-how. Want something a little different but not sure how to make it happen? A Wedding Planner will work to make it into a reality. They have a fountain of knowledge and ideas in their head and can help you come up with fresh and exciting design concepts that suit your individual style. They know which vendors to call upon and how much things roughly cost so they can point you in the right direction.

Make Your Day Go Smoothly

Your Wedding Planner will orchestrate your wedding day as if it's a movie. With detailed timelines to make sure everyone is in the right place at the right time and the day goes as smoothly as possible. They will resolve issues before you even realise there was one. On your wedding day, you should be able to relax with a glass of champagne and enjoy the moment, let your Wedding Planner rush around and take care of all the details.
