While talking with a bride several months ago, she mentioned that a friend of hers told her that she doesn’t need a wedding planner.
She then asked me what I thought.
Of course, since I am a wedding planner, you’re probably thinking that my answer was, ”Yes, you absolutely, positively, unequivocally do need a wedding planner.”
Well, sorry. No, that was not my answer.
Instead I told her that no, she does not NEED a wedding planner. But then again, to get married you also don’t NEED a florist, or a dj, or a photographer, or a caterer . . .
What DO you need? Well, to get married, there are really only 3 things that you need. They are:
- Two people
- A marriage license
- A person who can legally perform the ceremony
Everything else beyond that depends on what you WANT.
- Do you want a stunning ambiance to your wedding decor? Do you want to enjoy the day before your wedding sipping mimosas and relaxing at the spa, (instead of spending hours making bouquets)? Do you want your floral arrangements to be fresh, and beautiful, and dazzling, and WOW?
You hire a florist.
- Do you want to share a delicious meal with friends and family? Do you want to avoid having your mom slave over a hot stove and oven the week of your wedding? Do you want an experience instead of just “food”?
You hire a caterer.
- Do you want your wedding day to be creative, fun, and represent you and your fiancé? Do you want to save money and time? Do you want to remain stress-free and have the peace of mind that your wedding day will turn out how you envision it to be?
You hire a wedding planner.
So . . .
What do you want?
Hearts, Joy, Love!
