6 Valuable Reasons Why You Need Professional Wedding Planners

To some, getting a professional wedding planner for their big day might be a no-brainer.

It’s already at the top of their list to make sure everything goes smoothly during their special day.  To those, however, who are still weighing the pros & cons of spending for a professional wedding planner as opposed to arranging things on their own with the help of friends & relatives, this might help you decide.

We’ve invited Jets & Rhona of Canaan Celebrations to share 6 valuable reasons why you need professional wedding planners for your big day and here’s what we learned from them:

1)   Professional vs. Family & Friends

Think about how your wedding preparation and the day itself will be handled on the overall. Leaving it to family & friends may create a lot of complications especially when different opinions come out and they realize how much work & effort is entailed in helping you ensure you get the wedding you want. They might miss out on some of their responsibilities, as they get distracted and get caught up with being a guest/spectator weddings being a reunion of sorts.

Getting a professional to do the wedding planning job, on the other hand, means there’s someone with more experience at the helm who will not get emotional, will be objective and can focus intensely on your needs for your wedding.

2)   Figuring your wedding budget

Due to their years of experience and familiarity with the different suppliers in the industry, they have a keen understanding of typical costs incurred for weddings. Hence, they can help you figure out the right budget for the kind of wedding you want or how you can have the wedding you want with the budget that you’ve set for it.

3)   Matchmaker

Since you’ve obviously found your match in your future spouse, professional wedding planners can do some matchmaking of their own. They can match you up with the right suppliers based on your budget & desired look & feel for your wedding.

4)   Unbiased feedback

As professionals, they will tell you things, as it is – no biases & pretensions. They want to get you your money’s worth as you spend for your big day. So they don’t sugarcoat their feedback may it be regarding your selected theme, ideas or options for your venue & suppliers.  One thing they require, however, is that you be honest with them about how you really envision your wedding to be, and your budget of course.

5)   Keeps you focused

The excitement of preparing for your wedding can get you to either want so many different things to happen, or be confused or clueless as to what is possible for you to do for your special day. Here, a wedding planner can help you distill all the ideas and plans you have in your head to crystallize it into a specific plan for your wedding. And they help you stick to and focus on that plan.

6)   They will manage the whole event

Having discussed the details & plans for your wedding beforehand, all you really have to do is sit back & relax then just show up, walk, say your ‘I do’s and enjoy your memorable day. You can just let them manage everything, set things in motion the way things should go, troubleshoot mishaps that need to be addressed, and just take care of everything for you so you can focus on savoring and cherishing such a milestone in your life.

Getting a professional wedding planner enables you to just ‘let go and let God’ as Jets & Rhona puts it. Having them means you’ve put in the most that can be done to make things go smoothly, so don’t allow yourself to be stressed about what could go wrong. Once you decide to get a wedding planner, make sure to do some research to find the best professional wedding planner that suits you. Then let your wedding planner take care of that and let God’s plans take over, with them as instruments, to see things through.

  • I have ONE REASON that tops all the other reasons. 🙂 Having a professional wedding planner takes care of everything as you mentioned, pero it has one BIG advantage. You know how it can be with relatives? Having someone talk to them instead of the groom/bride makes it less complicated and easier. It helps you avoid potentially embarrassing or awkward conversations/requests. It helps you avoid declining requests from overeager relatives.

    Wala pong pinapatamaan pero meron kasing family members na maaring makulit kasi. LOL!


    • Hahaha! You are totally on point there! The wedding planners do become the shock (stress) absorbers that day! 🙂

  • tet

    I experienced planning our wedding firsthand and I can say it’s really tiring. So I would suggest also getting a wedding planner. Though I prefer not to have one because I want to be totally hands on everything and I love the experience. I enjoyed every moment of it.

  • Yogo Cream

    I absolutely agree with everything Jets & Rhona of Canaan Celebrations shared. One of my biggest regret before was not having a professional planner for my debut. Thus, I promised to myself that when I get married, we’ll have one, by hook or by crook. LOL All the more when we become somewhat popular bloggers :)) I just think that we need to get the right wedding planner. Someone who has the credibility and the vast experience. -Me-An Clemente of http://yogoandcream.com

    • Yeah, a wedding planner is a really big help especially during your big day. We just attended a wedding recently where the groom and the bride’s rings were left inside the hotel room and the couple was already supposed to exchange rings. If there was a wedding planner that time, that wouldn’t have happened.

  • Teresa Dumadag

    I had friends help out during my wedding. But as you’ve said, some get distracted with their “duties.” 🙂 Fortunately, my friends got distracted for good reasons. They were having so much fun. 🙂 But I would still advise those who can afford to invest in good, reliable wedding planners.

  • Xavier B

    It’s smart to give pros and cons between professional planners and family. That’s something we’ll definitely consider, even though we don’t want a big, crowded event but something intimate and simple, but to still make it as our special day of course

  • Miss Piggy

    Planners are essential for weddings. Did that before to two friends of mine. It is a hard and satisfying job specially when you see how happy the bride is. Its easier for couples as well, they don’t need to worry so much if they have the planners

  • Zwitsy

    It’s less stress too! I definitely agree on the reasons you have listed here. So I just hope that those who plan on getting married, they’ll consider of hiring professional wedding planner.

  • Nya

    Definitely, those are clear advantages of having a wedding planner. I admit I’d rather have the unbiased help of a professional. When it comes to that ‘special day’, we only live it once. I don’t care if I sound like an outdated princess wanna be 🙂 I need the help of a professional to make my day amazing! Great article.

  • Marge Gavan

    Not anywhere near to getting married so I can’t say I can relate but I see the value in the post. If I am going to have a wedding I know it’d be easier to have someone fix everything for me so less stress.

    I’m not the type of person that would love an event as a wedding. Instead I think I personally would love a small ceremony. However I can see how a wedding planner would be really helpful for the groom and bride.

  • Adrielle

    When I was younger and due to J.Lo’s famed movie, I thought about being a wedding planner. I love how planners get to witness everything about the wedding (yes, even the bridezilla moments!) but I’m sure in the end, after everything else, it’s worth it. I still want to be a wedding planner though. I just don’t know where to start. 🙂
