Why Hire a Certified Wedding Planner
Why Hire a Certified Wedding Planner? From my past experience I’ve seen many couples who try to plan their own wedding but soon realize all the time and focus it takes. With so many details to manage, the endless coordination can overwhelm you. Planning your dream wedding can become time-consuming. As I see it, hiring a Certified Wedding Planner can be your best investment and here’s why:
TIP: Hiring a certified wedding planner allows you and your partner to truly enjoy your big day stress free.
When you think about it, getting married should be a joyful and stress-free time. Couples should look forward to their wedding and honeymoon. Considering the average wedding takes approximately 250 hours to plan. The time commitment can make you and your fiance stressed and exhausted. The time leading up to your wedding and your wedding day should be just the opposite. Ideally, it is a the perfect carefree and special day with family and friends.
For couples working full-time, staying on top of all-important timelines and communications leaves little time to spare.
When you hire a wedding planner the process is dramatically different. Coordination continues methodically on your behalf. Your wedding planner sits down with the two of you to talk about the ‘look and feel’ of your special day. Rest assured that both of you are involved in making selections and giving your feedback every step of the way.
There are two types of wedding planners; certified and uncertified.
Hiring a certified wedding planner provides you with that extra comfort knowing that important steps are being handled proficiently. That includes ensuring that you have qualified vendors and suppliers available throughout the planning process.
In Canada, wedding planners are certified through Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, and as such, are governed by a strict Code of Ethics. A certified wedding planner will provide you with their 1) expertise, 2) industry-knowledge, 3) vendor contacts and 4) peace-of-mind that everything is handled by a professional and their team on your big day and leading up to it.
When you hire a Certified Wedding Planner, you’re making a valuable investment for you and your partner so you can kick off your shoes and enjoy your new life together.
