There is a common misconception out there that wedding planners are a luxury item.
I mean, why spend money when you can just ask for free advice on a Facebook group, right?
Don’t get me wrong, Facebook pages are great for gathering information, but sometimes it can get really confusing.
All of a sudden there are names being thrown at you (most you’ve never heard of) and who has got the time to ring or email every single one?
Also how do you know that someone else’s wedding vendor, which was perfect for them, will be just what you’re looking for or that you’re paying a fair price for their services?
A wedding planner uses their experience to source the best options at the best price and there are often discounts offered through some local businesses.
At the initial consultation we just have a chat where I get a feel for your personalities and your visions for the wedding. It can also be a starting point if you’re unsure even where to begin.
I have specially designed worksheets to help figure out which parts of your wedding are already sorted and which ones you need help with, even the logistics around the day itself.
Often on the day, wedding venues need set/touched up, flowers need collected (and normally delivered to different locations), wedding cakes need picked up, musicians need to be met at the reception venue for set up/sound checks, overnight bags need to be dropped off at the wedding night accommodation, etc.
It can be a lot of extra stress and can put added pressure on family & friends.
And that’s just on the day.
The most popular wedding venues and vendors can be booked out at least 12 months in advance so it’s important to start the conversation early to make sure that you secure the components of your wedding that are important to you.
It doesn’t have to be a scary process and you wouldn’t believe the number of times I’ve heard “I wish I had used a planner” after someone’s wedding day.
Even the most organised couples can feel overwhelmed by the process of planning a wedding. Wouldn’t you rather have fun making all the decisions but then have someone else to put it all into action?
It doesn’t have to be expensive, and packages are tailored to you.
