It may seem *slightly* biased that I would tell you to hire a wedding planner, BUT, if you’re looking for a stress-free, wow-factor wedding, it could be the best decision you end up making!
As most of you will already know, I’m a pretty straight shooter, so I certainly won’t deny that hiring a wedding planner is likely to be one of the larger costs you’ll incur when allocating your wedding budget. However, the value that we bring to our wedding planning clients is extensive and generally, far outweighs the costs of the planning service you have purchased.
So, given the costs attached to hiring a wedding planner, why should you consider making this investment?
Wedding planners undertake the hard work
My wedding planning couples tell me that I make the wedding planning process a breeze! I’m here to be your right-hand woman, supporting and guiding you through the process, helping you tackle the right tasks at the right time and offering my experience and professional wedding planning advice to ensure you have a professionally planned, beautifully designed and expertly delivered wedding. By the way, if we haven’t met, you can find out more about me here.
Hiring a Wedding Planner gives you access to all of their contacts!
As a multi-award-winning wedding planner, I have an extensive portfolio of wedding venues and a little black book brimming with amazing tried and trusted wedding suppliers who are on hand to help you bring your vision for the perfect wedding to life.
With relationships spanning many years, my wedding contacts are tried and tested and recommended to you because I categorically know they’ll expertly deliver the goods or services required to create your dream wedding. Of course, my knowledge doesn’t extend to just wedding venues and suppliers – having planned, designed and produced a vast number of weddings, I’m an expert when it comes to the wedding planning process and managing the logistics and flow of your wedding.
Wedding Planners will save you time!
Did you know, that on average, it takes over 250 hours to plan a wedding and around 350 hours if you’re planning a dry-hire wedding? That’s a lot of time to find, right? As your wedding planner, I’ll be on hand to undertake the lengthy, trickier tasks, leaving you to be involved in the fun elements and of course, make the final decision at each stage of the wedding planning process. Most of my clients are either busy professionals, have family commitments or are based overseas meaning that time isn’t in abundance. I’ll save you time whilst ensuring you have a professionally planned wedding.
Wedding Planners will save you money!
Yep, dispelling another myth here – did you know that a good wedding planner is likely to SAVE you money? In fact, sometimes the savings I make for my clients can almost equate to the fees I charge for my wedding planning services. As I mentioned above, I have an amazing network of wedding venues and suppliers that I work with regularly who generally offer a discounted rate or a perk of some kind to my wedding planning clients. For example, the tipi companies I work with offer a generous 10% discount and this alone usually equates to at least £1k.
Even in cases where there is no monetary discount, suppliers will generally include ‘extras’ – longer photography coverage, a freebie of some description or a discounted rate on add on services. I really can save you a significant portion of your wedding costs, whilst giving you the confidence that you have the top wedding suppliers on board.
Of course, there are lots of reasons why hiring a professional wedding planner makes sense and I could be here all day telling you about them! For now, if you’d like to chat through your wedding plans, then why not book in a free wedding consultation? I’d love to hear from you!
