Make sure the Wedding Planner you choose offers
an obligation free initial appointment, usually one hour.
Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life. You want to look amazing, feel wonderful and enjoy your friends and family. So why should you put yourself into a stressful position by taking on the huge task of planning your wedding yourself?
This is where you should, at least, consider the option to hire a Wedding Planner. Someone who is planning weddings all the time. Someone who has inside information and knowledge about:
- The best Celebrant
- The best Venue
- The best place to find the perfect Bridal Dress
- The best Florist
- The best Photographer
When you hire a Wedding Planner that person takes care of all those things for you. Naturally you are in on the planning. All decisions are yours and you have the final say on what goes on, what goes where and, more importantly, what your special day is going to be like.
Of course, if you are planning to have a really small wedding with just family, a registry office and dinner back at yours afterwards, or, if eloping is on the cards, then, obviously a Wedding Planner is totally the wrong way to proceed.
But, if your wedding is going to be a bit more of an affair, or your time for planning it yourself is restricted, then that’s where a good Wedding Planner will be worth their weight in gold.
Most professional Wedding Planners will have a choice of packages that will suit your budget.
From The Simple Package
- Providing you with recommended suppliers and making the bookings.
- Giving you advice on what is expected (wedding etiquette).
- Suggestions on styles and themes.
- A helping hand where you need it.
To The Full Package
- Advising you on every aspect of your wedding.
- Sourcing all the necessary providers and making the best deals.
- Booking all the providers.
- Hiring anything that needs to be hired.
- Co-ordinating all aspects of the wedding.
- Timing – making sure that everything thing and everyone is in the right place at the right time.
The list is endless.
And, of course, there are packages in-between. It all depends on your budget.
That’s another thing – the budget. You may have an idea of how much you wish to spend on your wedding, but so many brides and grooms will tell you that doing it on your own caused a budget blowout.
Do you want to spend hours surfing the net, going through the Yellow Pages, endless phone calls? That’s just for getting the quotes for Venues, Catering, Photographers, Celebrants etc. Then there’s making sure that the ones you have chosen are all available on the date you’re wanting.
When you hire a Wedding Planner, all that is taken care of. You will know immediately how much it will all cost once you have had the initial consultation and your personal package is put together.
Any professional planner will keep to that budget. They will make sure everything stays on track and that there are no hidden costs and nasty surprises. In fact there’s a strong possibility that the end result will come in under the budget which would be a wonderful bonus for the honeymoon!
Life is too short and your wedding day too important to be worrying about whether the florist will deliver on time, who the best cake maker and designer is, why haven’t the invitations arrived yet and more. Wouldn’t you rather concentrate on the fun things about the wedding:
- Getting your perfect dress.
- Your health and beauty preparations.
- Tasting the food!!!
- Enjoying the Hen’s night or Bachelor party.
But most of all, enjoying the planning without the stress.
So, from small, intimate weddings to wonderfully lavish affairs, whatever you are wanting will be catered for with little or no stress if you hire a Wedding Planner. What have you got to lose?
