What about wedding planners?

704

I read 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?

Are you:
Overwhelmed?  Stressed?
Confused?
Working full time?
Short engagement?
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; 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

wpicCanada 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. There is even a video from CTV http://watch.ctv.ca/news/top-picks/wedding-planner-woes/#clip202999 that goes into some detail about the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada.

  1. Wedding planners are the best thing I must agree….can save me so much time and headaches.

  2. We have a wedding planner for our June wedding. Less stress and they are so patient and cooperative to all our needs.

  3. I LOVE planning things and I only get to do a wedding once in my life. I am planning it myself and enjoying every minute of it!

  4. As planning continues, it seems more and more necessary to have a day-of coordinator. So I will likely be hiring one.

  5. Id love to have a wedding planner, sadly i havnt been all out wedding planning but i do have the main things complete 🙂

  6. Although having a wedding planner can save time and reduce stress, I do like planning the big day on my own. It’s a lot of work but so much fun!
