Full planners can take care of everything with your permission leaving you to show up and enjoy your wedding the same way your guests will.

4.) There is no one to help with the planning process. The truth is, brides that tackle their wedding without a professional usually have a lot of help from friends and family. If your situation doesn't include a super helpful mother or mother in law or your maid of honor isn't in the same city and can't help with the load then a wedding planner is the perfect alternative. A planner will become that go to person to help you in the moments when your family or friends cannot.

5.) You are having trouble finding reliable vendors. If one vendor started out fine but has now become a headache you might be feeling reluctant to find the rest of your vendors on your own. A wedding planner will have established relationships vendors who will go above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with their services. Vendors rely on planners recommendations as a source of business so the last thing they want to do is offer sub-par service. In addition a planner with a great established relationship will be able to get those little extra gratis that a vendor may normally charge for.

6.) You are experiencing a lot of conflict with your parents or in-laws. Many couples experience a lot of conflict with in-laws especially when they are contributing financially. Your wedding becomes their wedding in a way and it's driving you nuts. A wedding planner can be the go between and smooth the waters so that you all reach a happy medium.

7.) You have a super short engagement. Getting married in 3-6 months sounded fun until you called your 20th venue and learned they also are not available. Bringing together a wedding in a short amount of time is very stressful and the availability of services can be very limited. A wedding planner can spend the time and effort necessary to bring your wedding together in a jiffy.

8.) Every time you start planning your wedding you feel stressed the heck out! Stress is not going to make this process easier and you aren't going to make clear choices if you are stressed out. A professional can help calm the waters because now you have someone who knows what they are doing and you can trust to guide you through the process.

9.) You only want to look at pretty venues and eat cake. That's the best part! Well that is a very small part of the bigger picture. A wedding planner will allow you to enjoy the parts you like and take care of the parts you don't.

10.) Your wedding is in a different city than where you live. There is only so much you can do remotely. A wedding planner that is on-site can help ensure your wedding vision is brought to life.
