Planning for your wedding day is a big task with plenty on your to-do list. But should a home cleaning service be on that list? It could be one of the best investments you make for your wedding. Why? Here are a few situations when professional cleaning will be invaluable. 

1. When You Have Houseguests

Many couples host out-of-town guests in the days leading up to — and after — the wedding. Get your home ready for their arrival by having it thoroughly cleaned. They'll be impressed and you'll have less work. Is anyone staying longer than just a few days? Have cleaners come in during their stay to ensure everyone has a good time and you avoid unnecessary stress. 

2. When You're Prepping at Home

Where will you and your attendants or family get ready? Many people do this at home, which is both convenient and personal. However, this means that your house will be the background for those memories and the photographs that accompany them. A messy background will take away from the beauty and joy prep pictures bring you. 

3. When You'll Marry at Home

Having a backyard wedding? Your home will be the star of the show. Get some help making it ready for its close-up. Cleaners can help keep the house in good shape in the days and weeks leading up to the at-home wedding, and they can even come in and do last-minute work the day before or the day of the wedding. And, of course, they can help with the cleanup after the big day. 

4. When You Return from the Honeymoon

Wedding festivities don't stop with the nuptials. You probably don't want to return to a chaotic, dirty home after enjoying a relaxing trip as newlyweds. Arrange for a cleaning service to be let in and overseen by a family member or friend while you're gone. If that's not an option, schedule them for the day after you get home so you can spend your time getting prepared to return to normal life.
