Wedding is a big production, hence so many couples start preparing for their big day 1-2 years in advance!
There are so many things that must be done, which can make any head spin: choosing the venue, wedding dress and suit, finding a prefect wedding planner, making a guest list, sending out invitations, selecting catering, florist, bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen attires, finding a perfect dj and lighting company, contacting your dream live band …and making sure that all falls into place and happens as you wished.
With so many things to do, it is essential to find a wedding planner that will help you shift some weight off your shoulders and guide you in the right direction. I must insist how important it is to have a creative and professional person by your side! Wedding planning will be most likely your first time experience and that’s why you shouldn’t underestimate the significance of a professional planner/stylist.
You are asking yourselves why a wedding photographer writes about wedding planners? Besides that hiring a planner could be one of the best decisions you have made for your wedding day, having a planner also helps enormously wedding photographers to provide a better service. I can say from my experience that this is always the case with the planners I cooperate with and not only do we make a perfect team, but also help each other to achieve better results.
A wedding planner and photographer will work together on the perfect schedule for the day, making sure that there is enough time for photography coverage during all essential parts of your wedding. And of course a great team brings greater results. When you select a bespoken wedding planner, you can be confident that you will have the top-notch wedding vendors in the area working for you.
With such an overwhelming variety of ideas about how to style your wedding, it is so easy to get lost. Imagine, it is like choosing your wedding dress, but multiplied by 20. There are so many decisions and choices that have to be made, even selecting flowers for your bridal bouquet might become a few weeks of adventure. Of course nobody said that having a planner would make you forget about all planning responsibilities, surely you will have to participate and give the final “yes” or “no”, but having someone understanding your wishes and vision and accommodating them is truly priceless. Not to mention how agreeable it is to have a responsible person on site on your wedding day, so you can savour every moment of the day you dreamed of from the beginning to the very end without constantly making sure yourself that things fall into place and that everything runs on schedule.
Don’t think twice if you are considering to hire a wedding planner, just go for it and you will not regret it!
