10. SAVES MONEY
Money is one of the biggest issues when it comes to planning a wedding. It can be difficult to set a reasonable budget and stick to it. A wedding planner knows approximately what percentage of your budget should be spent in each area and they are there to help you follow that guideline. Think of them as your wedding financial advisor.
9. SAVES TIME
Many of us can't devote all of our time to wedding planning. Working with a wedding planner can save you an immense amount of time by allowing them to take care of the small details. Save time researching and use one of their suggested vendors. The amount of time you save with a wedding planner can be spent enjoying the process.
8. ACTS AS A MEDIATOR
Wedding planning can cause many fights between couples and with friends and families. Wedding planners have been through the experience multiple times and they know how to avoid such situations. Allow them to take on the unwanted responsibilities that are often passed on to your loved ones. Remember, you still want the wedding to actually happen!
