Getting married is up there with one of the most nerve-wracking experiences that I think universally we can all agree on. It’s the one day that every bride and groom wants to describe as “perfect” and that’s a lot of pressure to be placed on one day. Everything needs to go right.

To get this perfect day to be, well, perfect…there is a lot that needs to be planned to pull the day off. Traditionally, couples (and their families) underestimate what goes into planning and executing a wedding.

Planning a wedding requires someone with a level of OCD to details to make sure that everything runs without a hitch. In this blog, I want to break down my top 5 reasons why you need a wedding planner and not leave this event it up to chance.

  1. Assistance with Vendor Selection

  2. Direction on how to balance your budget with your wants vs needs

  3. Professional guidance throughout the entire process up to the date

  4. You have an independent voice of reason

  5. You get to give the headache and worry to someone else whilst you enjoy your special day

So let’s break these points down, shall we?



Going through the gauntlet of choosing vendors for all of your various needs is probably the #1 task that is enough to send you to a tiny chapel and get married with the necessary witnesses to make your marriage legal.

This is a process and one where you will see if a wedding planner is worth their salt.

After understanding all of your needs, your wedding planner will be able to sift through all of the relevant vendors and guide you in the selection process to make this headache-free as possible.

A good wedding planner can save you a tonne of time during this process. They have relationships with vendors, know which ones will best suit you and your budget, and know how to speak your language and the vendors to ensure everyone’s on the same page.



Naturally, your dream wedding is usually filled with all the wants to fill whatever your heart’s desires are.

A great wedding planner will know what a perfect wedding for you looks and feels like, takes your stipulated budget and begins to work their magic.

This is where knowing their vendors inside and out really comes in handy because things can get expensive really quickly.

Your wedding planner will know exactly what compromises need to be made in order to achieve the objective.



Once that date has been set and the clock starts ticking, a lot can happen.

The role of your wedding planner to is prepare you for everything that will come your way and mitigate as much of the unforeseen circumstances that could potentially arise.

When the curveballs do happen, they are right there providing you with the support and the options you need in order to move forward in a positive direction without much disruption. They handle everything whilst you focus on everything else that is happening in your day to day life.



Even though only 2 people will be tying the knot at the end of the day, there is sure a long list of people who will want to exert their influence over the entire process of planning your wedding.

You are going to get input from your family, friends, vendors, neighbours; everybody wants to add to your day. Your wedding planner is going to be the voice of reason that is the calming presence throughout the entire process and ensure the day goes exactly the way YOU want it to go.



When the day finally arrives, you are going to be consumed with all the love and support from your family and friends.

Your wedding planner is going to ensure that you fully enjoy your day and that you have nothing to worry about because they will be handling everything (and everyone) where applicable.

They will be running the show to make sure everything unfolds just the way it was intended to.


3 quotes from some of my previous clients really stuck out to me in our post meetings:

“…provided guidance on booking and negotiating with vendors and managing my budget as well as difficult decisions.”

“Really appreciated having a partner included in the planning process that knew exactly what to do and how to make things happen. As a couple planning a wedding, a lot of times the anxiety builds because you don’t know how to accomplish the goals you have.”

“You cannot put a price on being able to sit back and ACTUALLY ENJOY YOUR DAY!”
