Reasons to hire an experienced wedding planner

Why hire an experienced wedding planner?



I have talked to many young couples planning their wedding saying that they don’t need a wedding planner because they can plan everything themselves and they will have a friend or a relative coordinate on the wedding day. And of course, the other line I hear is that planners are too expensive. Interestingly enough, after all is said and done, they admit that their life would have been a lot easier if they would have had a professional “running the show”. They would have spent the extra money just to have things run smoothly and without any stress. This is one very good reason to hire a wedding planner.

There are lots of brides out there who do plan their own wedding and do it quite well. They really enjoyed the experience and so many of them decide to become wedding planners. Some of them get their certification, others do not, they put up a website and get business cards and Voila! a wedding planner is born!!!! What they don’t understand is that planning your own wedding is very different from planning someone else’s wedding. Many of them get stressed and frustrated with the couples that hire them and they quickly give up on their business idea.

My question to you is, if your sink was leaking or you had a short in your electrical box, would you fix it yourself or hire a plumber or an electrician? I would assume that you would hire the professionals who know exactly what they are doing. So, when it comes to weddings, why would you not hire a professional rather than do it yourself? Now I understand that many couples have tight budgets and can’t always afford to pay a professional; however, there are many experienced planners in Calgary and other cities that have assistants that have had a lot of experience working with the professional and can take over the role of the planner at a much lower rate. Boutiq Weddings & Events has done that a number of times and the couples were all thrilled with the work and the price.
