Wedding Planner vs Do It Yourself
Back in 2001, Jennifer Lopez starred in the Hollywood movie The Wedding Planner. Let’s not forget the spunky Matthew McConaughey also starred. This movie provided an insight into the secret world of wedding planning with everything from the glamour and fashion through to the hard work required to pull off such an important event. J-Lo’s character Mary was a wedding planner at the top of her game, extremely organised and paid attention to every little detail. If you’re starring in your own version of this Hollywood flick at the moment, you will need to be just as good. But what if you don’t have time? Or you just can’t be bothered? A wedding planner or wedding stylist might just be the answer you were looking for.
Pink Frosting love offering people with lots of fabulous ideas for their weddings and parties but we also love helping you make the important decisions. Having trouble deciding whether to do all the wedding planning and styling work yourself or choosing to hire a professional wedding planner? How about we do some of the hard work for you?
Hire a Wedding Planner if:
You are time poor – Most women juggle several life roles these days such as friend, worker, daughter, mother, volunteer and property owner. Who has time to organise a wedding on top of everything else you have going on? A wedding planner can take care of everything for you. All you need to do is meet with the planner a few times to steer him/her in the right direction and watch it all happen around you.
You get easily stressed – Planning a wedding is stressful work. A wedding is a massive event that takes months to organise and not everybody has the patience or coping mechanisms to deal with the high expectations placed on a bride during this period. Save your sanity and bring in the professional, you have more important things to worry about.
You don’t know where to start – Photographers, florists, dressmakers.....the list goes on. Finding the perfect professionals for your wedding is tricky if you don’t know what you’re looking for. Wedding planners are great as they have connections in the industry and quite often know who the best is and who to steer clear of.
You just can’t be bothered – Not every woman turns into a crazy Bridezilla who must have the perfect place cards to match their wedding shoes. If you are a laid back type of woman who is not too fussed about the perfect wedding, why not let someone who genuinely cares about creating beautiful weddings take care of it for you.
Plan your own wedding if:
You’re on a budget – Sticking to a budget is important when planning a wedding and many brides find they prioritise some things over others. If you can manage it, organising things yourself will save a lot of money.
You want a personalised wedding – Planning your own wedding ensures that your big day will be unique to you and your husband-to-be and really reflect your personality and style. You’ll have creative control and feel such happiness and satisfaction when your hard work pays off.
You’re creative and love shopping – The arty, crafty and organised brides tend to enjoy the process of buying wedding magazines, picking wedding colours and shopping for and making their own wedding decorations. If this sounds like you, planning your own wedding will be the best thing you ever do.
You know exactly what you want – A bride on a mission knows what she’s looking for and where to find it. If you have a clear vision in your head of what your wedding will look like, I suggest you take the control of the wedding planning yourself so you’re not disappointed if you leave decisions to others.
And it’s over to you now. You’ve seen both sides of the fence and know what sort of bride you are. Make the choice that’s best for you and your wedding will be everything you hoped and dreamed it would be. Australia’s #1 online wedding shop Pink Frosting wishes you all the wedding luck in the world.
