Okay, so you might reject the idea of hiring professional help for your wedding. In an effort to cut costs, you might decide to seek the services of your friends and family. And to be honest, that’s fine. If they have the relevant skills to help you on your big day, then you might not want to hire professional help at all.
On the other hand…
If you aren’t sure about the quality of help your nearest and dearest can offer you, and if you need to feel confident about your wedding plans, then you might want to consider some level of professional help. Otherwise, your wedding might be memorable for all of the wrong reasons!
So, with the above in mind, here are just a few of the professionals you might want to hire for your wedding day.
#1: A wedding photographer
Sure, you could ask somebody else to take your wedding pics for you, but what if they keep the lens cap on? Or what if they make a mistake when developing your photos? For better peace of mind, and for better quality pictures, you might consider the expense of a wedding photographer. You will then have quality photos to look back on in years to come, be they staged shots that you have requested yourself, or fly on the wall photos that capture those perfect moments you experienced throughout your big day.
So, do your research online by checking the websites and portfolios of wedding photographers in your area. Or if you’re considering a destination wedding, research photography services in the locale your wedding will be based in, such as andreamatone.com for a Rome or Italian wedding.
#2: A wedding caterer
Of course, your mom might have skills in the kitchen, and your great gran might have a history of providing wedding cakes for others. And that’s fine. While you should definitely take up your gran’s offer of a wedding cake, you might want to let your mom down gently. Why? Well, not only will she (probably) lack experience in catering for the multitudes, but she might not have the time, patience, or knowledge to consider the various dietary requirements your guests might have. On the other hand, a professional wedding caterer will have the ability to cook for many. They will have an understanding of the dietary needs your guests might have too. And if you are planning on a themed wedding, you might be able to find a caterer with the ability to provide food to match your creative ideas.
#3: A wedding entertainer
Okay, so your brother might be in a local rock band. And your mom, upset that she wasn’t able to provide your wedding buffet, might want to showcase her operatic skills on stage at your wedding party. And while you might want to give them both a slot on your big day, you might want to consider other types of wedding entertainment too. So, you might hire a clown to entertain the kids (little ones and big ones) during the reception. And you might want to hire a DJ who can provide a wider range of tunes than those showcased by your brother and mother. Or how about a comedian, a stringed quartet, or even a singing waiter? By choosing the right entertainment, you will give your guests a fabulous time, and you won’t have to suffer the embarrassment that ‘talented’ family members might cause if they spend far too long on the stage!
Thanks for reading, and every blessing for your wedding day!
