Easy Checklist to Find Out if You Need a Wedding Planner

By , About.com Guide

Many couples never even consider hiring a wedding planner, not realizing that having outside help can save you time, aggravation, and even money.

Here’s an easy checklist to find out if you need a wedding planner:

__ You’re way behind on your checklist and schedule.
__ You both work full-time jobs that will prevent you from meeting with vendors on weekdays
__ You don’t have other outside help such as an involved mother-of-the-bride, helpful bridesmaids, or knowledgeable friends
__ You don’t know many people who can give you reliable vendor recommendations
__ You are having a destination wedding
__ There are personality conflicts between the couple, their parents, and/or other people
__ You’re excited to be married, but just thinking about wedding planning fills you with dread
__ You’re having a very short engagement
__ You can envision your wedding, you have no idea how to make your dreams come true
__ You can’t even envision your wedding
__ You’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and generally wishing that you had decided to elope.
__ Even after you’ve read the *ahem* excellent advice here at About.com’s wedding website, you still wish that you had someone to give you advice and leadership.

If you’ve checked off one or more of the above options, you should at least investigate hiring a wedding planner.  Of course, if you’re looking to save money, this may be an expense that you can avoid.  But keep in mind that because of inside connections and experience that allows them to avoid common mistakes, hiring a wedding planner might be the most cost-effective move in the end.  Read about what wedding planners do, and consider the cost of wedding planners, and see if you should hire some outside help.

Here at Essence Entertainment we have many Wedding Planners we work with often and who we  appreciate very much.  If after reading this article you still have questions about what a Wedding Planner can do for you or would like a referral, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We’d be delighted to help!

Question to our Wedding Planners – do you have any additional information you’d like to add to assist Brides with this decision?  What aspects of a Wedding Planner do you feel are particularly important? 

We look forward to hearing from you!!
