A Wedding Blog for Stylish Brides in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario
Professional wedding planners are a past luxury turned present day necessity. For some, wedding details like: the dress, wedding cake, wedding invitations, and favours are simple subjects to address when the time comes to planning the big day. However, for many, the mere thought of it all plus the timeline, logistics, catering and the dreaded seating plan it becomes a bit too much to take on alone.
It can take, on average, over 250 hours to plan a wedding! Most couples find themselves in over their heads as soon as the planning starts – managing their daily schedules and demands and drowning in the details they didn’t even know they had to consider or managing parameters they didn’t know existed.
The best decision a newly engaged couple could make is to consult with a professional wedding planner at the beginning of the planning process. A planner acts as the neutral party who sees the bigger picture of the day. Their job is to ensure the enjoyment of your day unfettered by the logisitcs of the day. They start by helping you build a winning vendor team. Backed by their experience and knowledge of the many vendors in the local market, they can shape a team to fit your budget which can alone save you numerous hours of searching the Internet and attending consultations. They ensure that you get the most out of your wedding investments. Simply put they optimize your timeline for the best flow of the day to incorporate your priorities such as wedding photography while ensuring the smallest thoughtful details will also lend to the enjoyment of all your attending guests. Most importantly, they provide a service to bridal couples allowing them to experience their wedding day to the absolute fullest given they have the peace of mind that someone has everything well in hand.
There is a misconception that planners are only for the rich and famous. In fact, 80% of engaged couples hire a planner for a number of reasons:
By hiring a planner who will organize and implement the various tasks involved in a wedding, a couple will not only save time, but also money and unnecessary stress. They will benefit from their planner’s previous experience, creative suggestions, guidance, knowledge, and vendor connections. Most of all, they will be able to relax and enjoy their special day knowing that any problems or emergencies that may arise are in the hands of a seasoned professional.
