Today’s post is in response to a question we receive on a regular basis. Do professional wedding planners end up saving me money or costing more in the long run? Well, there isn’t one answer to this question. Some wedding planners save you money and some make your wedding more expensive.
How Much Do You Have to Spend?
In most cases, if you are on a tight budget, hiring a professional will cost you more. If you have a healthy budget for your wedding, a professional wedding planner can save you thousands of dollars.
Wedding Planners know all of the money saving tricks. You are paying for their expertise which can keep your money in your wallet. Many planners team up with other wedding vendors and get significant discounts.
So in short, wedding planners can save you money IF you have a large wedding budget. If you are trying to plan a wedding on a few thousand dollars, hiring a professional will usually cost you more.
As we always suggest; do your homework. Learn about the professional before you hire them. If you are unsure about hiring a professional, ask for a free consultation. Be honest about your budget and see if they can help.
