Why use a Wedding Planner?
When you hire a Wedding Event Planner, you aren’t relinquishing your part in the planning process (unless you choose to do so), but you are gaining an experienced assistant whose sole purpose is to help you and your groom pull your ideas together, make the day run smoothly and assist you to save money by offering cost-saving tips and discounts from vendors you might not get on your own.
I’m going to go out on a limb here – hearing “my friend or relative is going to help me plan my wedding” is one of the most frustrating things to hear from a new bride.
Not because it is business a wedding event planner will lose, but because the average wedding takes hundreds of hours to plan, and you may end up essentially putting your friend/relative to work. Time and time again, we've seen this pressure add immense stress to relationships and lead to a very stressful wedding day all around.
The last thing you want is your loved ones to dread hearing the word ‘wedding’ and wish they had never offered to help.
A wedding event planner is a third party who does not have an attachment to either bride or groom and can step in the middle of disagreements about planning details when family want to add their input. We are there to review contracts and make sure you are getting a fair price and there are no hidden fees. We have purposely developed relationships with trustworthy wedding vendors and can save a couple money (as well as heartache) from hiring vendors who may provide a sub-standard service. These are often things friends and family members have no experience with.
So when you have a friend or family member getting engaged and they want YOU to help with their wedding… please say no. You will be doing them and yourself a big favour. Instead, show them this article or any article that explains the benefit of a wedding planner.
They will thank you later.
What is a Wedding Event Planner?
Planning your own wedding is one of the most stressful events in your life, albeit a happy one. With the experience of over 10,000 weddings, there are many tangibles to planning the perfect wedding and its impossible to know how to achieve the best, most cost effective outcome with a memorable experience. The industry is seeing a shift towards the complete package ...the one stop shop at venues using all their preferred suppliers and this is becoming increasingly popular due to time poor clients. The other alternative, is to do it all yourself and thats where you begin, at the bottom of the mountain.
It's our learnings that if you choose to book a complete package with your venue, then you won't need a wedding planner as this is generally all coordinated with the venues wedding coordinator. If you build your own wedding, we strongly advise appointing an experienced and reputable wedding planner.
Our wedding events planning team has over 35 years experience in planning special days and know how to WOW your guests.
Having a planner to take care of the details allows you to enjoy the event planning journey from start to finish without all the stress. We work with tried and trusted vendors and event specialists that will provide their very best for you - saving you time, hassle and money.
If you answer Yes to any of the questions below, then we're here to help.
- Do you know exactly what you want for your event but don't have the time to source quotes, manage vendors, tie up all the loose ends and make it perfect?
- Are you recently engaged and not sure where to start?
- Have you looked at a zillion magazines and blogs and would like assistance to find your unique style and then entwine this through all your wedding details?
- Would you like an experienced professional to double check your hard work, make sure nothing is missed and ensure your event is coordinated perfectly on the day?
- Are you running out of time, with a multitude of plans and tasks and feel like it's slipping out of control?
Just as every bride and groom is different, so is every wedding - we can do as much, or as little as you need.
Many of us have seen Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner – someone who wears colour-coordinated suits, issues orders over a microphone headset and carries water spray inside her jacket to revive nervous fathers. But what do wedding planners really do?
We give wedding dresses that final perfect fluff before the bride walks down the aisle. We take frantic late night phone calls from emotional brides (and grooms). We have calm conversations with protective Mama’s and stressed caterers. We have a florist on speed dial. We have a wedding day emergency kit that would make MacGyver jealous. We are awake long into the night going over every minuscule detail of one of the most important days of someone else’s life.
Why on earth would we want to do that, you ask?
Have you been around two people deep in love? It’s refreshing, it’s uplifting and it’s contagious! Having a slightly-OCD love for organising everything and having plans run smoothly certainly doesn’t hurt.
We guarantee to save you the fees that are charged by having strong associations with reputable and preffered suppliers that provide exceptional value, giving you the wedding of your dreams planned to perfection.
