Here is another guest blog from the perspective of a wedding officiant. Of course I think you need a planner but here is why the person conducting your ceremony might like you to have one! Click HERE if you would like to chat about how to work with a wedding planner.
From our perch, looking down the aisle, in the moments before you change your life on one of the most important days of your life, and after celebrating about 1700 weddings, one of the best gifts a couple can give to themselves, as a wedding gift to each other, is a wedding planner, if not the entire process at least for their wedding day.
Now you might be asking yourself, why would a wedding officiant be recommending a wedding planner?
Here is an incomplete list of why there is a huge benefit to having a wedding planner either for the day of the wedding or during the entire process of planning your big day: a sense of order, calm, organization, know how, peace, serenity, the able to reduce stress, worry and anxiety, peace of mind, insightful, orderly, punctuality, a sense of perspective, timing, management, a manager and cheerleader, tissues, honesty, discretion, an objective third-party, observes details, details, details, comes with an emergency kit, emotionally stable, knows the vendors: the good, the bad, and the ugly; intuitive, artistic, caring, has know how and knows how to handle most crises, your wedding planner is not your mom, your sister or your best friend but an objective third-party, who is able to keep her or in a few cases his head on tightly when everyone else might be losing theirs; wisdom, knowledge and most of all experience, experience, experience!
On the day of your wedding, the time immediately before the ceremony is probably some of the most nerve-racking and emotionally charged moments of the entire day: from hairs, nails, makeup, getting dressed to photos and getting everyone to the ceremony site on time and all that occurs in between, those few minutes before you walk down and getting you to that point, are some of the most critical and emotionally filled moments of the day.
From our perspective having a wedding planner makes your day run so much more smoothly. Your wedding planner will save yourself tons of stress, worry, anxiety, and frustration and will be there to hold your hand and walk you through one of the most important days and some of most important moments of your entire life.
