The Wedding Affair Perfect Planning Guide… How Could A Wedding Planner Help You? Tonight’s #WeddingHour Topic
Good morning to aaalll of our lovely readers, happy hump day also! Remember, #WeddingHour (AKA, our favourite hour, ever.) will be taking place tonight, between 9 and 10pm! Do let us know if you will be joining us in the comments below.
The topic of interest tonight will be Wedding Planners. As we (The Wedding Affair) are in the wedding industry we of course, know that they are super, super helpful when it comes to all things wedding. However, for Brides and Grooms-to-be it may be harder for them to understand how they work, and how they can even help to make the experience even more enjoyable than it already is.
Well not to worry, we are here to inform you of everything that they get up to. Whether you are seeking one the day coordination or full blown planning. There are many packages to suit everyone, from the Bridezilla and to the (dare we say it) the Bridechilla’. At the end of the day, everyone handles wedding planning differently and have different workloads/ priorities. This is why planners are so great, there will most definitely be a package to suit you.
If you would like to join in the conversation about planners then do join us in #WeddingHour tonight, over on Twitter from 9pm. Perhaps you are seeking some help on planning your own pretty wedding, or are you a planner and would like to answer any questions? Simply type #weddinghour into your tweets to be connected and join the rather lovely conversation.
So, what is a wedding planner?
First of all, for those that may not know, a wedding planner is basically what it says on the tin (to put it bluntly). They can help out with pretty much any aspect of planning. Or, simply, do all of the organising for your wedding. A wedding planner is a professional who assists with aspects such as design, planning and the management of a client’s (you, the Bride/ Groom-to-be) wedding. Sounds good, right?
Weddings are most likely to be one of the most significant events in your lives and if you do want help, there are so, so many wonderful planners out there. All you will need to do it do a little bit of research, pop to some wedding fairs or source blogs for plenty of inspiration. Of course, before anything check out The Wedding Affair approved supplier directory. We have a selection of the best in the country.
For the ones who may feel a little overwhelmed…
Weddings admittedly, are very stressful to organise. Not only do you have to sort all of the logistics, you have to get creative, find suppliers for all of those seemingly impossible things to find. To top it all your families may pulling you one way and another.
Knowing where to go, who to speak to, what to do next can be very daunting and, very time-consuming. Sound familiar?
Wedding planners can help. I bet even after your first phone call, or consultation you will immediately feel at ease. Wedding planners can’t 100% promise to sort out family issues or make your partner love the colour scheme you are going for. However, planners can help and offer unlimited priceless guidance. After all, they are professionals, and do what they do for a living.
Ultimately, this will leave you to have a stress free engagement, and hopefully enjoy as much of the process as possible, not to mention your dream wedding.
Having a hard time finding suppliers?
As your wedding planner, they will do absolutely everything you want or need doing for your wedding. This includes, finding you some pretty stunning venues, marquees, caterers or transport– anything to be honest. Wedding planners will have some of the best contacts in the industry, so you name it, they will be able to sort it out for you.
Forget about the whole “wedding planners are for the rich'” No matter what your budget they will be able to find suppliers at your price point, and they will never go over your budget. They will arrange appointments and consultations for you, and you will be able to relax, having piece of mind that everything is under control. They may even be able to negotiate prices with suppliers on your behalf, so actually save you money! Its a win-win really.
On The Day Co-ordination?
Planning a wedding is undoubtedly a mixture of feelings. Have you perhaps done all the planning yourself, and got everything organised perfectly? Most wedding planners offer on-the-day co-ordination, both to help you relax and to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
Wedding planners can help you to feel relaxed and ultimately leave you to enjoy your day. They can liaise with all of your suppliers, help assist with photography time tables (there will be no lost Aunts when you have a planner!) They will also be able to make sure that if the timings run over, nothing will be effected.
Help On A Destination Wedding?
Perhaps you are having your wedding over seas, and have no idea where to start? A wedding planner who is an expert in dealing with destination weddings will be perfect for you. Again, they will know some amazing contacts and be able to liaise with suppliers on behalf of you.
Language barriers usually may play a role in making this a trickier option, your wedding planner will again be able to assist you with this.
The most beautiful wedding…
Of course, you also would not have to worry at all about your wedding not looking beautiful – not only do wedding planners have a creative flair to them that is second to none. They also know the best people to make your wedding look ever so stunning.
Have you being to our luxury wedding fairs? You will truly see what they can do to transform even the smallest spaces! So, not only will your wedding be perfectly organised, it will look just how you wanted and SO beautiful!
