Who hasn’t dreamed of a perfect wedding?
It is every little girl’s dream to have that perfect wedding.
I remember playing with tissue papers like it was some sort of red carpet for my Barbie doll bride to march ever so slowly to the tune of my current favorite love song (alternating with the wedding march) as Ken waits by the altar.
It is the moment every couple is waiting for.
It is that one day you would look back to when you are old and grey as you reminisce with your grand children how perfect, how magical, how perfect your wedding day was.
However, wishful thinking that the universe will connive to give you that perfect wedding day is not enough.
Your perfect wedding will need careful planning and meticulous preparation.
To pull off your perfect wedding, you will need help.
Lots of help.
Every bride aims to be involved in every single detail when planning her wedding. She would want to read more about romantic myrtle beach weddings. However, put pressure and stress on a very eager bride and there would come a time when she cannot handle everything on her own. She will end up a very frazzled bride.
This is when the wedding planner is needed.
She is the life saver, the one person giving her expertise and experience to put all your plans and visions of The.Perfect.Wedding. into reality.
Just why should you get a wedding planner?
Here are 5 reasons why:
1. You have never planned a wedding ever in your life.
Most every bride gets to plan a wedding only once. Your wedding planner, on the other hand, must have planned hundreds of weddings before yours. That makes this brisbane wedding planner an authority. She, along with her team, would know the best wedding suppliers, the standard industry rates so that no one will ever over-price you,the perfect wedding for your budget, plus they know the wedding checklists by heart. No bloopers,like forgetting the wedding ring, would ever happen.
Her presence and expertise will stir your perfect wedding into the right direction, making you save time and effort.
2. There is so much to remember. You will most likely forget a simple detail.
A wedding ceremony involves so much preparation. You need to have the wedding invitations, zero in on a wedding theme and color motif, a wedding venue, a guest list, menu choices, entourage dresses, bridal gown and groom’s suit. You need the wedding ceremony symbols like the veil, cord, bible, wedding ring and the coins. You need to decide on the music and the wedding singer. The checklist goes on and on.
Initially planning this on your own or along with your groom may be fun at the beginning, but as the wedding day slowly but surely creeps on you, you will enter into a zone of panic, especially if you only have a few days before your big day and you still have lots to do.
This is when you need your wedding planner who will stay on top of every single detail.
3. Your Maid of Honor is not your wedding planner. She may forget details, too.
Your Maid of Honor may be with you even before you planned your wedding, when she was simply your best friend you shared your perfect wedding dream with. However, she will not have time to take care of every single detail about the wedding you might have forgotten. You will need a professional wedding planner to keep everything together.

4. You want to look your best (not stressed) on your wedding day.
Brides are allowed only one thing on their wedding day – to be the most beautiful woman in the room.
If you are super hands-on on your wedding preparations – and I don’t blame you – you might consider taking some time off to relax and rest. Your wedding planner may have worked on countless weddings already and knows how to deal with pressure. She and her own team will handle every detail.
5. You want to focus on the occasion, your family and friends on your wedding day.
Having someone with her team orchestrating your wedding will let you focus on the sanctity of the occasion. Weddings are celebrations and your wedding is the perfect time to bond with new family members (your groom’s), your friends and relatives.
There are some couples who hesitate on hiring a professional wedding planner, not only because they may be working on a tight budget, but they also want to add a personal touch to their wedding. Still, getting a wedding planner is very highly recommended.

Wedding planners help make our dream wedding happen, with less stress and less things to worry about. They are necessary but if you are good at planning events, I guess it's up to you if want to get a wedding planner or just DIY.

I sometimes wish I had a wedding planner before. But, too bad the budget will not allow it. So yeah, the bloopers happened, unfortunately.
I did not get a wedding planner when I got married but I can say that wedding planner is also good to avoid stress.
I do agree with you. Planning your own wedding it stressful and sometimes it would be the worst experience to the bride-to-be. Planning, organizing, making invitations and buying all the stuff all by yourself is not recommended. It is better to have someone who is an expert in this field to organize your wedding. It's your special day, so you have to be beautiful. 🙂

If a couple planning to get married can afford it, it is good to have a wedding planner to make the big event perfect and stress-free. But of course, a couple can do the planning and preparation as well with the help of family and riends.

I did not have a wedding planner either, the budget just can't afford one, lol! and yes, it was a lot more stressful. I just embraced it as part of the wedding as a whole! 😀

When we got married we didn't hire a wedding planner. We can't afford the service hehe. Yun pangbayad add ko na lang sa fund namin. But I think if you really can afford it's a big help. That's because planning a wedding is really stressful.
Dominique Goh says
It would be really good to have a wedding planner to handle all the nitty gritty of wedding planning. We didn't have one back then as it was too costly and managed to pull it off nevertheless with savings .
I am getting married soon and we don't have a wedding planner. Can't afford it now. I know it's a lot more stressful but I'm enjoying the preparation. How I wish everything will be alright.

We did not hire a wedding planner when we got married. I'm so lucky to have a great family who helped me and hubby on our wedding day from invitations, wedding motif, dress, food, cake. It turned out such a great garden summer wedding. BUT, hiring wedding planner is such a big help. Thanks for this post, Sis:)

Wedding comes happens only once in our life unless something unfortunate happen. It's really important to make wedding very memorable.
I'm not married yet. Or getting married soon. But it also came across my mind not to hire a wedding planner if my big day comes para lang makatipid. But I guess, hiring a wedding planner does help a lot. I'm pretty amazed by people who were able to pull off their weddings even without the planner.
