As you have probably guessed from the name of the business, I am Beckie Melvin and I am a wedding planner.
Before I was a wedding planner, I had a background in PA work for around 14 years, working for Directors who had far too many tasks & far too little time - sound familiar?
This gave me the perfect grounding for wedding planning & event co-ordination, so I took several courses to gain certification (& to be certain it was what I wanted to do), & here I am. I love my business, I am hugely passionate about helping couples achieve their perfect day, so why not call or email me today & see how I an help you? I am based in Bedfordshire, but I cover Hertfordshire, Cambridge, Buckinghamshire & north London (as well as further afield if people need me). I look forward to hearing from you soon, in the meantime.... congratulations on your engagement. Beckie x
Planning a wedding is both an exciting & a highly stressful time, even for the most organised person. Here, I've listed a few ideas which I hope will restore some serenity to the proceedings. As always, anything else you need, please drop me a line - I'm happy to hear ideas & help you put them into order! Beckie x
Hire a wedding planner - seems obvious, but a lot of people overlook the importance of a wedding planner. We take all the stress, the worries, take on all the tiny details, co-ordinate the suppliers, chase the missing RSVPs, make payments... anything that would usually land on your shoulders. I can also SAVE you money, because I have the time for endless research & negotiation, plus using my many contacts, all of which I pass to you for YOUR benefit.
Do what relaxes you - if you're not someone who goes for regular massages or beauty treatments etc, don't start booking them now as a relaxation technique. Stay true to yourself. If you usually read to unwind, then pick up a good book. If you hit the gym, then pack your bag! Don't feel like you have to conform to a stereotypical "bride".
Eat! - Especially on your wedding day. Passing out won't be the memorable occasion you always hoped for. Keep your strength up for the night of dancing & partying ahead.
Welcome to Beckie Melvin - Wedding Planner, wedding planning for the professional & constantly busy bride (& groom, let's not be sexist here). My mission is to take all the ideas you have, all the Pinterest boards you've made, all the magazine & notebook cuttings you have, & turn them into your perfect day with minimal stress for you, and maximum organisation for me. The lead up to your wedding, and the day itself, should be an enjoyable time where you discuss your plans for your future with your partner, but how can you stay relaxed when there is SO much to organise? Pages and pages of suppliers to contact (then chase), budgets to be set (and revised), meetings to be attended (sometimes repeatedly)... This has to stop! Give all your worries & stress to me, let ME be the one to sift through the suppliers, attend meetings, keep everything in budget, chase RSVPs, while you enjoy your engagement in the best possible way. Don't believe me? Get in touch today for your free, no obligation quote & proposal. In the meantime, congratulations on your engagement. I look forward to hearing from you soon, Beckie x
