The Wedding Planner is an entity that has become very popular in the past decade or so. What once seemed to be an extra expense for the rich and famous is now an essential part of many middle-class family weddings. I perform as an Indian Dj, Pakistani Dj and Punjabi Dj in Montreal and see more and more weddings being run through a Wedding Planner.
Is it really an expense or is there actual value in hiring one? Let’s look at what a typical Wedding Planner does.
The Wedding Planner is there for you at every step of the wedding process. Right from when you start thinking about your big day until the job is done. They share your vision and your stress, brainstorm ideas and bring a repository of valuable experience.
One of the the first questions a Wedding Planner asks you is Budget. They will try to accommodate your taste within your budget as far as reasonably possible. They usually have a network of associated vendors and are able to get better prices due to their supply chain relationships. More often than not, the Wedding Planner actually pays up their own cost through the money they help save!
The biggest value that a wedding planner brings is experience. They have been in a variety of places in a variety of circumstances. Whilst most of us can get anxiety attacks in stressful situations, the Wedding Planner stands tough as a rock because there is hardly anything they haven’t seen before!
During the wedding process, all days are not equal for the groom and bride. It is during difficult times that the Wedding Planner keeps you going at the right pace in the right direction. For them, your wedding is a project that must be delivered on time, within budget and with the least amount of stress.
They help you create a timeline of things which is something that is often ignored in the rigmarole of life. Timely booking of important cues such as location and other service providers is part of their job. Especially on the day of the events, time management is mostly an issue for us regular folks. The Wedding Planner takes care of this aspect as well, thus making sure everything happens on time which saves people a lot of frustration that occurs at mismanaged events.
So next time you are looking to organise a wedding it might be worthwhile to look into the possibility of hiring a Wedding Planner. Good luck either way!!
