1. Planners have more experience than you!

Ladies, that Pinterest board you’ve had for six years doesn’t quite qualify as experience planning a wedding. A professional knows the ins and outs of what goes into the planning process and knows how to tie up all the loose ends before you tie the knot. Small details easily slip through the cracks but having a trained eye on your side to coordinate the day is an absolute life saver!
