If you’re planning a wedding in the UK, don’t forget to regularly check the One Curious Dream Wedding blog for lots of wedding planning tips, advice and guidance! Today, the multi-award-winning wedding planner, Jo Pyman explains why a wedding planner is best placed to help you find your wedding supplier dream team!
Sourcing the best wedding suppliers is a key task for any couple planning a wedding, and often one of the elements that can be quite stressful. Most couples who are in the midst of wedding planning won’t necessarily know what traits to look for in potential wedding suppliers, and the lack of knowledge can lead to problems further down the line.
As a wedding event planner, finding the very best wedding suppliers for my couples is a key task and making recommendations of suppliers I know and trust is extremely important to me!
So, at One Curious Dream, how do I approach this incredibly important wedding planning task?
Well, firstly, when you hire a professional wedding organiser, you’re paying for skills, experience and knowledge. A great wedding planner will have a little black book of tried and tested UK wedding suppliers to recommend to you. For me, I have an amazing portfolio of wonderful suppliers who I’ve worked with over the years, so I know they excel at providing their goods or services.
Essentially, I’ll have first-hand experience of working with those wedding suppliers, not only on the wedding day but during the lead-up to your wedding as well. I’ll know that they offer excellent customer service, that they’ll be flexible and responsive and that you will also enjoy the process of working with them.
Another significant benefit of hiring a wedding planner is that many of the wedding suppliers I work with offer perks and/or discounts to my wedding planning couples.
From wedding photographers and wedding videographers who offer 10% off their wedding planning packages to marquee and tipi hire companies who provide additional goods and services to my couples – for example, free furniture hire or similar, you’ll always benefit from the perks of the relationships I’ve established over the years.
As a leading UK wedding planner, I’ll always negotiate the best deal on your behalf, but these little perks and discounts from my trusted wedding suppliers can save you a lot of cash when planning your wedding.
I’ll only ever work with reputable wedding suppliers who can demonstrate that they are able to deliver their product or service at the highest level. I’ll ensure they work within their industry standards (for example, by having the correct food hygiene certification for caterers) and that they offer a legally binding contract and can demonstrate they have appropriate insurance cover in place.
I do not accept any form of commission or referral fee for recommending wedding venues or wedding suppliers to you. This means you can always be sure that the wedding recommendations I make are always based purely with your very best interests at heart.
