The Benefits Of Using A Wedding Planner

“I thought only the rich and famous celebrities have a wedding planner”

“If I’d known the amount of stress and work involved in planning a
wedding myself, I’d have hired a wedding planner”

If only I had had a pound for every time I hear these two statements from brides and grooms! So, let me explain what a wedding planner does and how much it costs.

Wedding planners make your day happen just as you want it to be, leaving nothing to chance and no detail forgotten. They help you create the wedding of your dreams and are the experts in spotting and stopping disasters before they happen. They keep you within budget and calm your nerves. They will guide you, calmly and expertly through a bewildering array of choices, saving you valuable time, reducing your stress and most of all making sure you have the most memorable and exciting day!

Once you have decided you might like some help organising your wedding, look at websites and in bridal magazines and ask the venues who they might recommend. At an initial meeting you will know whether the chemistry is right, and ask how long they have been in business, how many weddings do they organise a year and ask to see a portfolio of weddings they have organised.

A wedding planner will ask you lots of questions about your plans for the day and should be able to offer lots of creative input as well as have exceptional organisational skills. Once you have agreed budgets and terms of payments, they will then take you step by step through everything you need to make your dream day come true, making plenty of lists, keeping track of your budget and offering loads of advice and help when you might be worrying about everything.

So, can I afford a wedding planner? Whether you both have a demanding job - you live remotely from your chosen wedding venue or you just don’t know where to start, each wedding planner works in different ways and offers individual products and services depending on your specific needs. From a totally bespoke full planning service to just being there on the day as an extra pair of hands, fees range from a flat fee, a percentage of your total budget or an hourly rate, but if you shop around you will find a planner to suit your budget.
