Practically every modern bride has her own unique vision of what her dream wedding should be like. It’s every woman’s dream to have a perfectly planned, memorable, happy and beautiful wedding celebration.
The planning of such a perfect wedding day will take from 100 to 300 hours, depending on the size of the planned event. At first glance, it may seem like a huge amount of time, but lots of it will be spent on drawing up the general concept of the event and a wedding budget, thinking through the various options, finding suitable contractors, communicating with them via e-mails, telephone and personal meetings. You should also take the time to do your research, study the market of wedding services on the Internet, read reviews, comments, etc.
Thus, if you spend at least two hours on wedding planning a day, seven days a week, the entire process takes on average 2 to 5 months.
Before you decide to organize the wedding yourself or use the services of a wedding planner, it is worth an honest answer to several questions:
Am I patient enough to communicate with many people involved in organizing the wedding, deal with their moods and not spoil my own celebration?
Am I a stress-resistant person?
Do I have a 100 – 300 hours of free time that I can devote to organizing my wedding?
Do I know all the required wedding service providers that meet my idea of a perfect wedding and planned budget?
Have I any experience of organizing such a celebration?
Can I keep calm, looking for solutions in possible force majeure situations? For example, due to weather conditions part of the guests cannot arrive on time, at the last moment the wedding host cannot lead the ceremony due to health reasons, flowers booked do not match the chosen color of the wedding, etc.
Am I ready to deal with organizational problems on the wedding day (give instructions by telephone, pay fees to wedding professionals, answer questions of waiters, etc.)?
If you cannot answer yes to at least one of these questions, then you should seriously consider using the services of a wedding planner.
