Now, as a qualified wedding planner I may be a little biased on this subject! However you can't deny the value & importance of employing the services of a wedding planner. Below I've tried to outline a few of the reasons why we're so important to your big day, but believe me there's much more too. Let me know what you think?
I will take the stress off your shoulders, taking on the responsibility of scheduling meetings with wedding suppliers, day to day arrangements, leaving you free to enjoy your engagement
Talking of chasing people, still waiting on answers from Aunty Joan or your work friend Neil? Are you fed up of asking them whether or not they're attending? Here's where your I can come into my own. With patience & time on my side, those RSVPs will soon be received.
Budgeting & scheduling skills run through my veins. I *love* lists, being organised & will happily create budgets & timelines for you, so that you know what should be happening at any time. It doesn't matter how tight or fluid your budget, I can help you realise your perfect day without breaking the bank (or a sweat!) I have it covered for you.
Insider knowledge & access to tried & trusted wedding suppliers. OK hear me out on this one. I admit, I have favourite suppliers that I work with time and again, but I never get commission from any that I recommend to you. I only work closely with people whose businesses provide the best possible service &, well, who are decent people! No attitude, no fuss, just amazing wedding services.
Communication with your wedding suppliers - you don't have the time to be speaking to 15 different wedding suppliers in a week. You have more important things to do, like work & keep up with friends & family! Give the communication over to me, I'll still keep you in the loop but not trouble you with little admin details.
Introducing you to some new & original ideas, personal to YOU. Every couple wants their wedding to be unique, so they all read the same magazines & blogs & websites for ideas. Time to break the habit, & get myself on the case. With my experience in the industry, I guarantee I will have original ideas just for you - anything from outstanding photography shots, to unique floral ideas, & more.
Solutions to tricky situations - What are you supposed to do if your mum and mother-in-law disagree about hen party details? How much should you ask your bridesmaids to pay for their dresses? When should you send out your save-the-dates? I can safely say I've seen it all, so will be able to guide you through any tricky situations that arise during the preparations for your wedding day.
Invaluable assistance on your big day - right this is the BIG one, which is obviously why I've left it until last to address! A wedding planner is, as far as I'm concerned, essential to your big day. If any issues arise during the ceremony or reception, I'll be the first one on the scene, so you won't need to worry about anything except enjoying your special day with loved ones. You don't need to worry about logistics or timings or queries from suppliers - I have it covered, while you have a perfect wedding day.
