So you think you can’t afford a wedding planner, but let me ask you this. When was the last time that you did something for the first time and you were good at it, right? Even if this is your second or even third time getting married, right? There are some things that can fall through the cracks. And as a wedding planner, I am telling you this because I started a wedding planning company, because when I got married and my co owners got married, we did not have wedding planners. And there were some things that got missed and we wished went differently if we would have just had a good wedding planner. Now as planners, now we have couples that have $5,000 budgets or $10,000 budgets and still have a decent guest size, and they are hiring us at $1,500, $3,000, $5,000. And that’s picking up that portion of their budget because the value is so great. Like a good wedding planner will actually save you money and will save you an incredible amount of time and stress. That being said, if there is no way that you can figure out how to factor in a wedding planner to help with your day, there are resources that you can get. I would do a ton of research online, download all the lists that you can download, ask everyone you know who’s been married, what they liked, what they didn’t like, what they wish would have gone differently, what ran smoothly, and just get as much experience from them as you can. There’s a lot of online resources. There are Facebook groups now where brides are asking each other if they can be guests to each other’s weddings and make new friends. And you can go to this event and kind of get that feel for how a wedding flows. Even just getting to one or two weddings before your event is going to be a massive help. Shameless Plug if you absolutely can’t hire a wedding planner and you know that you need help, we created an e journal that is specifically geared to get you all of the knowledge that a wedding planner would have so that you know which questions to ask. So this isn’t your normal journal where it’s like, put your bridal party here and put your vendors here. This is 55 pages of questions that we would ask you if we were your wedding planner to make you think about every single aspect of the day that needs to happen. And hopefully we’ll give you the knowledge that you need to plan your day and make sure that none of the snafus that typically happen, right? So if you’re interested in that, it’s called winning your wedding planning. It’s that best weddingplanningjournal.com, and I hope that you check it out. Whatever happens, my number one piece of advice that I give to every couple is get a wedding planner. But I hope that you find the solution that works for you and that your day runs super smoothly.
