{Aisle Say by Candice}: Wedding Planners to the rescue

Modern couples of today who are coping with their busy lifestyles and careers have the choice to call on the services of a wedding planner to take care of all the extra stress involved in planning their special day. Although, this is mostly a sensible and affordable option, many brides still argue that it is too expensive and they would rather be ‘hands on’ in planning their fairy-tale wedding. Some brides see wedding planners as more interfering than being supportive. These brides must remember that they will always get the final say in the decision making process. Besides, they can choose the level of involvement and support they will want from their wedding planner: full consulting, partial consulting, or “day of” coordination.

How can wedding planners help you?

Eliminate stress: as a bride, you may feel overwhelmed with all you have to do and often don’t know where to begin. With their professional organizational skills they will help you every step of the way and keep track of all your service providers.

Save money: planners have established good relationships with wedding vendors/suppliers and can often negotiate better pricing for the bridal couple. They can also help you to stay within your budget.

Knowledge: their experience and expertise in the wedding industry will give you reassurance.

Style/Design: planners will get an idea of your personal taste and style and guide you to create a unique and memorable wedding that reflects both you and your groom.

Support: they can play mediator and peace-maker. One of their roles is to be efficient in understanding your needs and be able to explain or discuss with the different/relevant parties.

Here are some key questions that you should ask before hiring your wedding planner:
• How long have you been in business?
• How many weddings do you handle per weekend?
• What are your fees? (Hourly? Flat fee? Percentage?)
• What is included in your package?
• Do you have photos of any recent weddings you have planned?

If I had to do it all over again I would definitely choose to have a wedding planner. The always seem to be an asset and often are worth every penny.
