Before you begin planning a wedding, you might think the process is relatively simple. After all, all you need to do is book a venue, find a caterer and buy a dress – right? In reality, planning a wedding involves a lot more than just finding a venue and ordering some food. In fact, you have to organise everything from the music and the menu to the décor and the transport.
On top of this, you need to think about flowers, seating plans, chair covers, vows, outfits, and your honeymoon, not to mention who makes the guest list and who doesn’t.
This is why many couples opt to hire a wedding planner. More affordable than you might think, a wedding planner will make a huge difference to your wedding prep and is guaranteed to make the process much less stressful and far more enjoyable.What’s more, at Country House Weddings, a Personal Wedding Manager is included in your package and they’ll be there to help you from start to finish.
Are wedding planners just for the rich?
Many people mistakenly believe that wedding planners are just for the rich. And while a good wedding planner won’t be cheap, their skills and expertise could actually end up saving you money – as well as a lot of stress – when planning your wedding.
Often, the most affordable way to hire a wedding planner is to go through your venue. They’ll have a list of planners they work with and may even have in-house wedding coordinators you can use to get the job done.
Planning a wedding, like any skill, takes time to learn and perfect. You’re unlikely to get everything spot on at your first attempt and you may well end up wasting money here and there as you struggle to find the best suppliers for your big day.
As most wedding planners have been organising nuptials for years, they’re perfectly placed to find the best value caterers, florists, and musicians for your big day. This can make a big difference to your budget and really take the pressure off your finances during the wedding planning process.
In the run up to your wedding, and on the day itself, your wedding planner will be on hand to coordinate your suppliers and ensure everything goes according to plan. As @brides says, ”While many vendors tackle more than one wedding per day or per weekend, a planner is focused only on your special day and will push to make sure everything goes according to your unique plan.”
If you and your partner both work busy jobs, or if you have other commitments taking up a lot of your precious time, a wedding planner may well be an essential.
Having someone who can focus on your nuptials and put all their energy into getting the day just right will help to ensure you get the wedding of your dreams.
