I read here that the average bride spends 250 hours organizing her wedding – that’s equal to 6 full-time working weeks. Planning a wedding is like a full-time job! For some people it IS their job. Are you leaving your wedding planning to a professional planner or co-ordinator?
Working full time?
Way behind on your checklist and schedule?
Can’t even envision your wedding?
Then you may need to consider a wedding planner!
Oh but the expense!
A good point was made here; while you have to pay wedding planners to do the planning of your big event, which costs money, it could actually save you money because they’re experts with years (hopefully) of experience who probably work more quickly than the average bride/groom combo. They have contacts in the wedding industry that could actually save you money and it will certainly save you time. So maybe hiring a wedding planner isn’t such a bad idea.
Certified Weddings Planners of Canada
Canada even has an association of wedding co-ordinators. Did you know? It seems people can take courses and become “certified” to plan your big day. They even have a code of ethics and everything. Check them out at http://www.wpic.ca/ There is even a video from CTV here that goes into some detail about the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada.
