A WEDDING PLANNER?
First off, I think it’s really important to understand the difference between a Wedding Planner/Designer and a Venue Wedding Co-Ordinator.
Many venues will offer a Wedding Co-Ordinator as part of their packages, many couples think this means that they’ll have someone to assist full planning their wedding, of course they’ll be on hand to help with any queries they may have but this will all be venue related.
The role of a co-ordinator means they’ll be on the day to run the timeline of your wedding day, however it’s not in their job role to help assist with the rest of the planning process, for example: Help create your vision through unique design/styling meetings, create budget spreadsheets and take over the budgeting process.
If you’re looking for someone who can hash out smaller details & fine-tune your budgets alongside a bunch of other stuff:
So the big YES! Into why you should hire a wedding planner is mainly because they can create a STRESS FREE wedding for you, not only on the day but for the whole process running up to it.
Did you know that in the U.K planning a wedding was voted the 7th most stressful life event?
The whole process should be a fun, memorable & romantic time for you and your partner, not one to be remembered where you almost took your partners eye out by launching your plans at them from across the room ;)
Wedding planners are professionals at dealing with stress, you can think of us as you “Wedding Therapist” if you like! Trust us to be in contact with all your suppliers and to manage your budget, so you can put all your efforts into what really matters: being able to ENJOY the ride with your partner.
Speaking of budgets, Wedding planners set out to achieve to SAVE YOU MONEY, we’ll always focus on getting the best value for money & we work with your personal incomes to decide on a budget that’s most suited for you – which we promise to stick to throughout your whole planning process.
Hiring a Wedding Planner would work for you if TIME isn’t on your side, for example if you both work crazy long working hours and simply do not have the time to plan such a grand event.
Did you know that Wedding Planners on average spend around 200 to 250 hours per wedding?
So anything that eats up the majority of your time such as creating timelines, manage invitations & RSVP’s & finding the best suppliers in the industry that suits your unique style. It’s in our nature to also keep this as ORGANISED as possible.
This brings me nicely on to my next point, we can recommend some of the BEST SUPPLIERS in the industry, we’ve built up relationships with other suppliers in the industry which gives us great knowledge on how they work, their unique styles and most importantly we only work with people we trust! Which is massively important when choosing suppliers.
As a Wedding Designer & Planner, not only are the logistics important, but bringing your VISION to life is up there with our no1 priorities.
We ensure that we meet you enough times and discuss what you like and dislike from this we’ll be able to create a beautiful mood-board of all your favourite colours and textures and work alongside other supplier to help bring your vision to life & turn your DREAMS INTO REALITY.
Then of course, we’re there for the big day! For me, I think it’s important to be there the day before, the day after and to have no time limit on your actual wedding day. See us as “The Director” and you as the couple are The Stars.
