Why hire a wedding planner and what do they actually do?
A wedding planner is perfect for those time pressed couples. They will offer a range of different planning services from full wedding planning (design, styling, planning and management) to partial planning, venue finding and on the day co-ordination. They will also offer couples the opportunity to kickstart or restart their wedding plans with Wedmin Assistance.
A professional wedding planner will give you support and input with all or part of your wedding planning. If you have a demanding job or busy lifestyle and the idea of spending any spare time you may have meeting wedding suppliers and visiting venues may not be appealing or practical.
They will have good contacts in the wedding industry and can help you to save money or make your money go further by selecting the right suppliers to suit your needs and your wedding budget. They will work with you to ensure you have a clear idea of your wedding budget and will help you to stick to it. A good planner should pass on any discounts and/or commission offered to them by suppliers. They will lead the venue and supplier discussions on your behalf leaving you to enjoy your engagement and the more enjoyable aspects of planning a wedding.
A wedding planner for some couples is the right investment. They will save you time, reduce overwhelm and stress and keep you in your wedding budget.
Tips to choosing the right wedding planner
- Make sure they are a member of UK Alliance of Wedding Planners (UKAWP)
- Have they planned or managed your style of wedding before?
- Decide on what level of help you need, is it full planning or just on the day coordination?
- Ask if discounts and/or commission offered to them by suppliers are passed down to you
