Many people plan their weddings with their family and friends and partner, but any people who can afford to splash their cash hire a wedding planner. If you have seen the film “Wedding Planner” that does not always happen, trust me, you need not be worried about your husband running away with the wedding planner. A wedding planners job is to basically help you take the weight of the wedding of your shoulders and take the brunt of it on theirs, they do most of the organizing you just do the choosing. They are there to help make your day even more special, and make you pay quite a bit more!!
But does a wedding planner really make a difference in a wedding? Do they make it all that more organized? Do they really add that missing touch? The truth is no, yes they help you with the organising but it is like someone else takes over your special day, you don’t have a lot of say in things and things just seem to take heed with you standing back and watching your wedding planner make all the decisions. Sometimes you get a wedding planner that is great and you get on well but other ones are like the devil let loose and rain on your parade!
Wedding planners are usually women or eccentric men who may be have one of the best jobs in the world. They have control and organisational skills and know how to make things work, but it does not always suit the bride and the groom, often a wedding planner’s own tastes come into play and that then takes the special feelings and unique moments out of planning a wedding!
I say the best thing that you can do is stick together with the support of your friends and family and muddle through with the wedding plans, they may not the best organized or the fanciest but they are yours and your partners moments together leading up to your big day, the last chance you will have to spend as an unofficial couple, as in the next few months you will be married, and then there is no going back!
