Why Use A Wedding Planner?
Why would someone select a wedding planner instead of arranging their own wedding?
The Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan in May 2018 drew a great deal of international attention and a wedding like that would take a great deal of planning. Not everyone’s wedding is a royal wedding, but they still do require a lot of planning and attention. Also, not everyone has the time and inclination to spend days, weeks and months planning all of the details of their wedding.
Some will want a wedding planner.
The Wedding Planner
A wedding planner can manage what is often classified as one of the most stressful events that a person can be involved in. If the planner fulfils their role, they will turn it from a stressful into a relaxing and enjoyable event, where the happy couple can focus on the celebration of their love.
There are so many factors to consider when planning a wedding, including:
- Whether religion would be included or not
- Order of Events
- Organising and Inviting Guests
- Wedding party clothing- dresses, suits, etc.
- Gifts for the guests
- Gifts for the bridal party
- Printing Invites
- Arranging the cake
- Managing third parties - including hair, make up, celebrant and all of the other people you would need to communicate with for the wedding day.
Essential Skills for the Wedding Planner
A wedding planner, who has exceptional organisational and event management skills, will be able to manage these considerations and arrange a happy, successful event, irrespective of the size of the wedding.
Some other essential skills that a wedding planner will need include:
- Excellent communication skills
- Conflict Management Skills
- Understanding Project management
- Understanding of Budget management
- Problem Solving Skills
- Negotiation skills
- Be empathetic and understanding
