Newly engaged? You will quickly learn that wedding planning can easily become a full time job or find you will be spending many weeknights and every weekend trying to squeeze in wedding appointments and tasks – no fun after a while, especially for the groom!
Throughout the wedding planning process there are countless decisions to be made. These need to be made in the right order, according to a budget allocation and all come with a number of other factors to consider in the mix. It can really become quite daunting for those that don’t have the experience. And if you think you have it under control – that the planning process is easy street…hmmm be aware! The last thing you want is the issues that come up on the day or closer to the wedding that have you in a panic. We are of the philosophy, adopting the same approach ourselves, that if it’s hard yards before the wedding and you’ve dotted all the ‘I’s’ and crossed all the ‘T’s’ then that extra hard work beforehand definitely pays off when it comes to your big day!
Regardless of your plans, a big or small affair, the bottom line is you will be outlaying a great deal of money towards this big day. Of course there are many reasons why hiring a wedding planner would be of benefit and these can be found in our FAQ‘s but we’ve laid out three reasons why we feel a planner is a must if you’re looking to spend your money wisely and have a seamless wedding day!
To achieve your Wedding Vision
A number of our brides have a Pinterest board full of color themes and flower centerpieces but after a while, they have so many themes and images resulting in them coming to us utterly confused, undecided or simply overwhelmed by the sheer number of choices and how to pull it all together to make it reality? More importantly – how much will it all cost? An experienced wedding planner can look at your Pinterest boards and instantly pick up on the underlying consistent thought trail. They can help you to focus in on the big picture while picking and choosing the matching details from your boards to ensure everything will come together perfectly. They will work with you towards a budget or estimate spend in regards to your choices and help you pull off, not just an ordinary event, but an amazing one that is a true reflection of your desires!
A Stress Free Day
By engaging a wedding planner, not only do they take on your stress, with their knowledge and expertise, they are able to guide you effortlessly through the wedding planning process. Making the right bookings, asking the right questions and doing the extra checks will eliminate a number of the issues that can arise on your big day. On the day itself, think about the last event you attended, you can usually pick out the host? It’s safe to assume the host is the one rushing around frantically trying to make sure everything is in place and that everyone is happy. This is fine for a birthday or engagement but don’t let it happen to you on your wedding day. Let a planner worry about all the details and deal with all of your suppliers for you while you enjoy your beautiful day.
Big or Small Budget, I Want to Spend my Money Wisely
A lot of times, brides automatically think they can’t afford a planner in their budget. Most planners have a set fee for their services and also have discounted rates with preferred suppliers. They will also take it that extra mile to set a foundation from the very beginning, correctly allocating your wedding spend. You might not realise how and where to spend your money, are you sure you are paying what you should be for a service or are you paying too much? Are there better ways to get more value from your spend? Absolutely, an experienced and industry respected planner has the knowledge and contacts to keep you on budget, get what you want for a good cost and teach you where to spend and where not too in the wedding planning process.
