Why Wedding Planners Are Worth It

Planning the perfect wedding isn’t all white doves and cocktails; it can be a stressful affair. Recent studies have found that wedding stress can not only negatively impact on your health, but also on that of your partner. If you are one of the 2.4 million brides-to-be in the US, cutting down on stress then is key — and wedding planner packages might just be the answer.

For one thing, planners usually have insider knowledge about the latest trends of ceremonies and receptions. For example, you would like to join the 35% of couples who opt for an outdoor wedding, your planner can scout potential locations and explain the pros and cons of each before you commit to the perfect place. A planner can teach you how to organize an event in coral gables, help you find the best Miami wedding halls or create a Winnipeg witter wonderland. Or perhaps you want something a bit wackier, like the 40% of brides seeking a venue that better reflects their personality. From quirky sci-fi shack to shabby chic, wedding planner packages can meet all needs.

Once you have found your perfect venue, it is best to snap it up quick. Experts advise your reception site at least nine months to a year before the wedding. Once you know where your ceremony and reception will be held, your planner can work with you to customize the decor and event design to complement the space while also reflecting your taste and style.

If you would rather hop a plane with your groom and a small party of nearest and dearest for a destination wedding, a planner is a must. If you are unsure how to organize an event in the Caribbean or Mexico — both prime destination wedding reception places — a planner with experience in the region can help you learn the lay of the land and ensure that there are no unpleasant surprises once you finally touchdown in your romantic spot.
