Benefits of a wedding planner
Here are a few reasons why you might find my services extremely valuable:
TIME – such a precious commodity and sadly most of us don’t have enough of it! I can help you reclaim some of yours back, taking on the ‘not so enjoyable’ aspects of planning so that you can concentrate on the fun parts.
KNOWLEDGE – I’m a bit of a swat and like to immerse myself in the ‘wedding world’. Through constant research and by working closely with trusted suppliers and fellow planners, I know what’s hot and new, what new products are out there and what new services can help make your day incredible.
VALUE – Whilst hiring me will be an extra item on your budget, I can often help you save money too! I know what’s good value and often obtain discounts for you where I can. I know what is overpriced and what better alternatives are out there ensuring that your budget goes as far as possible. I also keep a close eye on your budget too – helping you to stick to it!
EXPERIENCE – I have experience in and out of the industry and bring all of that to the table for you. I can match my tried and trusted suppliers to your specific needs. I take the time to get to know you so that I can make sure my suggestions are bespoke and perfectly matched to what you are looking for.
ADVICE – I often describe myself as a ‘buffer’. No one really prepares you for the emotional rollercoaster planning a wedding will be. I can sit on the sideline for you, giving you non-emotional advice whilst fully understanding how difficult planning a wedding can be. I will take you through the tough moments and will help you to find the best solutions by drawing on my wealth of experience. Often an outside professional opinion is great value.
REDUCE STRESS – Planning a wedding is stressful and this is often underestimated or even overlooked at the beginning. Most of my clients lead very busy lives so adding more stress into the mix is just unhelpful and unnecessary. I can help you set realistic timelines for all of your wedding tasks and provide you with tried and tested ways of working as well as taking the most tedious tasks away for you.
DETAIL – I like detail and lists! I’m sure you will have lots of them too. I can help make sure that even the smallest detail is not overlooked and that all the items on your lists are ticked off.
I feel incredibly lucky and honoured to be involved on one of the most important days of my clients’ lives. It is YOUR day and I will never try to take over or implement my own ideas. I will also never use a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to your wedding – how could I when all of my clients are so individual and unique?
