Imagine you’ve set the date and dreamt for months of your perfect wedding day. You spend endless hours making lists, searching for venues, suppliers, caterers and transport, not to mention dresses and suits. The big day
arrives, the transport is late, the guests are starving and you’ve run out of alcohol!
That’s why, to avoid panic and confusion, the ‘Wedding Planner’ was invented way back. After millions watched the royals get hitched in the 80s, followed by numerous celebrities hiring a professional to plan their special day, the idea really took off! The good news is, you don’t have to be a royal or celebrity to hire a wedding planner!
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider it:
A ‘No Worries’ wedding day
“Compiling the guest list, selecting a venue, seating arrangements” and group photo lists are “key tension contributors,” according to ‘The Independent.’
Hiring a wedding planner can certainly be a stress reliever! I can step in at any stage of the planning process to support couples, ensuring everything runs smoothly, so you get to switch off and enjoy spending the day with your favourite people!
I offer six different tailored services, including full and partial planning and design, a special service for marquee weddings, 7 week support and on the day coordination. There are plenty of options to suit a range of individual requirements.
Big decisions, busy schedules
Deciding on décor, suppliers, venues and crunching costs may feel hugely overwhelming and time consuming! Investing in an expert to guide you through the planning process, help you spend well and build a team of trusted suppliers can save you a lot of time and energy.
Valuing your vision
Maybe you visualise a woodland setting, elegant orangery marquee or a Cotswold estate for the weekend as your stunning backdrop? Fancy great live music or a full on flashmob?
Working with an award winning wedding planner provides the perfect match of expertise and your own creativity. During consultations, you will be able to discuss ideas that reflect your story and personality, planting the seeds for a really heartfelt experience.
I love to work closely with you as a couple, to incorporate your passions and values, bringing to life the unique vision for your wedding, your way.
Delivering the details
Timelines and liaising with guests, suppliers and venue staff will become an integral part of the lead up to and the day itself, making sure that everyone arrives on time and sticks to the plan!
You won’t need to worry about any unforeseen problems, weather or wardrobe disasters. I always have a plan a, b and c in place, along with wet weather back ups! Plus, my emergency kit stays on hand, containing everything from safety pins, plasters, a cake knife and even phone chargers.
As the bride, enjoying a cold glass of bubbly with your bridesmaids whilst having your hair styled and a beautiful makeover is just one of those moments that most definitely matter.
You get to relax and focus on that moment, whilst I take care of the finer details: putting out on the day stationary, drying off the bouquets, pinning buttonholes, greeting guests and registrars and lighting the candles!
So, if you’re looking for a ‘creator of happiness’ to help you plan one of the most important days of your life, look no further. Book a no obligation discovery call to discuss your
