WHY SHOULD I HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?
By Luno & Stella Event Planner, Becka Headley

Do you feel as if you don’t know where to start with planning your wedding? Are you worried that you may forget those small details, or you won’t be able to find the right suppliers? Every couple deserves their dream wedding, but it can feel as if it is impossible to achieve your vision. Hiring a wedding planner can eliminate these issues in a number of ways. 

I’ve shared my top 10 reasons to hire a Wedding Planner, below: 

1. Alleviate the stress

In the UK, getting married is voted as the seventh most stressful life event. Often couples can get so caught up in the demands of planning their wedding, that they don’t take the time to enjoy their engagement, which is a special time for every couple! At Luno & Stella, we will take on all of the ‘wedmin’ which can often to be overwhelming, coming to you only when the most important decisions need to be made.  

2. Trusted suppliers 

Wedding Planners have a network of suppliers who they have built great relationships with and who they can trust. Every wedding is different, and therefore different suppliers suit different couples. Having this network of suppliers via your Wedding Planner is an invaluable tool, ensuring that you are matched with the right suppliers offering you the best opportunity to bring your dream day to life.

3. Avoid costly mistakes

Your Wedding Planner will collect quotes and proposals from a number of different suppliers, highlighting to you any cons to their terms and conditions. Without this valuable input from a Wedding Planner, you may choose the wrong supplier for you, which can be a costly mistake. 

4. Etiquette 

Even if you are having an unconventional wedding, there are some standard wedding etiquette rules which you should follow. A Wedding Planner can help you with the difficult decisions of what information to put on your invitations, which guests to invite to your wedding day, and seating arrangements (one of the toughest tasks of all!).

5. Time

Planning a wedding can be a huge time commitment, with the average taking around 250-300 hours, and with 80% of this time being ‘wedmin’. This can be extremely difficult for a couple to navigate alone, alongside the demands of day to day life, child care, work commitments, and much more. A Wedding Planner will allow you to continue to meet these daily demands, along with having the opportunity to relax and enjoy your time as an engaged couple. Scheduling appointments and managing RSVP’s can be extremely time consuming, but you won’t have to worry about these ‘wedmin’ tasks with the assistance of a Wedding Planner. 

6. Budgeting

We understand that a lot of couples are on a tight budget and will want to get the best value for money from their suppliers. It can be easy to get carried away with your wish list and for costs to spiral. A Wedding Planner will assist you with crunching numbers where needed, guiding you to keep on track, reminding you of upcoming payments, and also finding you the right suppliers to fit your budget. 

7. Knowledge

Wedding Planners have invaluable knowledge when it comes to problem solving and managing any last minute changes that may arise, both during the planning process and on your Wedding Day. With the heightened emotions that can arise around weddings, Wedding Planners also have skills in managing conflicting relationships which may arise. 

8. Organisation

Wedding Planners are extremely organised and skilled with managing timelines. At Luno & Stella, we will ensure that your planning continues to progress throughout the pre-wedding phase, and also that the timeline on the day of your Wedding is met, coordinating all suppliers, and ensuring your day runs smoothly.   

9. Style and vision

Wedding Planners keep up to date with trends so you don’t have to, saving you time and money on researching ideas. With your signature style in mind, we will create a mood board at the outset, ensuring that everyone involved has the same vision. Our in-house Design Coordinator, Emily, has extensive knowledge in the creative sector, and can assist with bringing your vision to life with regard to aesthetics on the day, as well as creating bespoke stationary. 

10. Enjoy your day

The Wedding Day is one of the most important events in a couples life. However, the stress of ensuring that everything goes to plan can sometimes take away from the magic of the day. Having a Wedding Planner on hand to ensure that everything runs smoothly, timings are met and all suppliers have arrived as expected, can be invaluable. This will allow you to relax, enjoy your wedding day with your loved ones, and dance the night away.
