Weddings can be stressful to plan, all the details, guest lists and schedule coming together on the big day can drive brides crazy. Many brides struggle with whether or not to hire a planner.

Recently Claudia Abalo of Abalo Creations Event Design shared with me her top 5 reasons to hire a planner for your wedding.




1. HELP! There are so many details that go into a wedding, no matter how big or small. Even the most organized bride can feel overwhelmed during this time. Help is needed and a wedding planner is there to assist in every little aspect; from locating venues and vendors, to picking out dresses and favors.
2. STRESS RELIEF! At first planning a wedding is fun, exciting and then it starts to get overwhelming with so many decisions to be made, so many opinions, and so many things to do.  A wedding planner can do so much of it for you! All you have to do is choose, they take care of the rest. They help to coordinate vendors and guests while you have a worry free wedding.
3. BEST ADVICE! While planning a wedding a bride will hear the opinions of a thousand people and her head will be spun in a thousand different directions. A wedding planner can not only be a mediator for her but can also be a guide. The planner will guide her in the right direction. There are so many choices to make nowadays and sometimes a bride gets boggled by them. The wedding planner will ensure that your vision is followed from beginning to end.
4. SAVE YOU MONEY! This may come as a surprise but the wedding planner can actually SAVE YOU MONEY! Most wedding planners will organize a budget of the wedding and keep a running tab of expenditures. They will also negotiate contracts with all of the vendors to make sure that you are getting the most for your money. Wedding planners have connections with vendors they have worked with in the past and can help you to choose the right vendors for you.
5. WANT THE BEST FOR YOU!   A wedding planner will go out of their way to do everything and anything possible to make you happy and comfortable on your wedding day. You should be able to enjoy your wedding day to the fullest and build happy memories to last a lifetime. They will keep the event running smoothly so you can kick off your shoes and have fun!
Even if hiring a full service planner is not in your budget, check with the wedding planner you are considering to see if they offer day of coordination only. This can be a great budget friendly option to help your day run smooth.
