When you get engaged, everything starts happening seemingly fast (unless like me, you’ve been casually making little wedding related decisions even before you got engaged) The first thing everyone tells you is that you need to pick your wedding planner*. Some people swear that they couldn’t have created their dream wedding without theirs. It seems like a natural thing in the course of planning a wedding. Having meetings with someone to pick out colors, textures, meeting and picking vendors, eating cake. You know, like the movies!
Phew! Getting to this point in the story, I wasn’t sure I wanted a planner because I’m pretty good at planning and getting all the bits and pieces together myself! And if you’re like me, you might have considered just opting for a coordinator** for the date or even doing it by yourself (as per big babe). But before you get confident in your planning skills, here are some things to consider
With all the considerations taken, I decided to get a full service planner, to plan, design, manage and coordinate on the day and i feel pretty good about it!
So, here’s the big question. For all the money in the pot. Do you need a planner, a coordinator, your friends, or can you do it all on your own? Comment below! If you’ve already done your wedding, what did you choose? Did you have any regrets?
If you’re a bride-to-be, what are you leaning towards?
*A wedding planner is someone who helps couples with the planning, organization, and management of their wedding
**A coordinator is kind of like a planner except they only manage the already planned event and already booked vendors. They work predominantly on the day, making sure it all runs smoothly but do not partake in the planning experience
Burn. Bloom. Be
