Planning a wedding is no easy feat. In hindsight, it may look like something a typical bride-to-be can manage, but there are actually more tasks that need careful attention than you expect.
That’s where wedding planners come in to save the (wedding) day. But to help you better understand what they are and what they do, we try to answer some of the questions couples usually ask about wedding planners.
Do I need a wedding planner?
Planning a wedding can take most of your time, and if you’re someone who does not have much of it on a regular basis, then you definitely need one.
Having a wedding planner will help you navigate the wedding preparations with ease and in a timely manner. You can still be involved in the wedding process as much as you’d like, but having a planner can help you delegate tasks accordingly, manage your budget and lessen the stress that usually comes along with wedding planning. So, do you need a wedding planner when you exchange I do’s? Yes, you do.
What’s the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?
The answer is self explanatory—a planner plans and a coordinator coordinates. The wedding planner lays down the groundwork in preparation for your wedding. They help you make decisions that would suit your needs, while also keeping track of your expenses. They are also the ones who gather suppliers and oversee contract negotiations. Wedding planners are on top of everything, from visualizing your dream wedding to its thoughtful execution.
A wedding coordinator on the other hand, is the one who follows up on what is already decided. They usually come in at the latter part of the planning, to tie loose ends and check up on the smaller details leading to your wedding day. They are also the ones who run the actual day of the wedding to make sure everything happens on schedule.
What are the different services available for me?
Services usually vary on the amount of work needed to accomplish before your wedding day.
- Full planning service – refers to planning your wedding from scratch. It’s a full planning service from the beginning to the day of your wedding, from it’s conceptualization to the execution.
- Partial planning service – refers to more of a rescue service. This is when wedding planners come to the rescue in the middle of the process when brides realize they actually need help.
- On the day coordination – refers to completed wedding details handed over to the coordinator to oversee on the actual day of the wedding
What can the wedding planner do that I can’t do?
You pretty much can do anything a wedding planner does, but they have the bigger advantage. They have the edge of knowing the ins and outs of the industry, and can help you make better decisions when needed based on their experience. They can also help you manage your budget and your time wisely, so you can worry less and look forward to your wedding day with ease.
While all of this information is helpful, it also pays to choose the right wedding planner for you. Make the effort to check their credentials and look at their portfolio. Having a seasoned planner is an ally to help you throughout your preparations.They hold a certain reliability as they have built relationships with trusted people in the industry professionals over their years of experience. That also adds to their credibility and in turn, will be given their due respect from other suppliers.
