WHY HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?

Couples hire a wedding planner for a variety of reasons, but often it is because they do not want the responsibility of arranging their own weddings. They would rather an experienced and professional wedding planner took over the planning and management of the day. Many couples also work with a wedding planner because they have busy jobs and quite often do not live in the area or even country in which they are getting married!

A wedding planner will ensure that your wedding is exactly as you have imagined, executed with precision and care. They will make the process seamless and enjoyable, tapping into their extensive network of suppliers to ensure that you have the best of the best at your wedding. The most exclusive venues, the most stylish floral designers, jaw dropping wedding cakes and food from the most up and coming chefs and caterers. Couples that hire a wedding planner rarely want an ‘off the shelf’ wedding. They work with a wedding planner to create a celebration and experience that is truly unique and personal.

WHAT SERVICES DO WEDDING PLANNERS OFFER?

Generally wedding planners offer similar services; Full Wedding Planning and Design, Partial Wedding Planning and Wedding Day Management (also know as On the Day Coordination). Full Wedding Planning and Design is exactly what it says; the complete design, coordination and execution of your wedding celebrations from start to finish, and is the most common service offered by wedding planners in the UK. A wedding planner will source your venue, recommend the best suppliers, keep track of your budget, send your invitations, manage your RSVPs, coordinate menu tastings, book your appointments and so much more!

Partial Wedding Planning is perfect for couples who have planned some elements of their day but realise they need an expert to take over the reigns further down the line. This is usually after couples have found their wedding venue and realise that there is a lot more to organise than originally anticipated and are perhaps unsure how to bring their vision together.

Wedding Day Management is for couples who have planned their wedding themselves, and would like a wedding planner to manage the day for them.

WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM HIRING A WEDDING PLANNER?

Couples that hire the best wedding planners in the UK, and elsewhere, do so because not only do they want a flawlessly executed day (or more often than not, an entire weekend of celebrations!), they want a wedding that is completely unique and personal to them. They choose to work with a wedding planner as it allows them to not only benefit from the experience and knowledge of a professional event manager, but it also allows them to benefit from an expertly curated network of professionals. Private chefs, up and coming performers, exclusive venues and the most sought after photographers are just a few examples.

You will benefit from hiring a wedding planner if your wedding has many logistical elements to it. It might be that your wedding is taking place over a number of days, or perhaps across several locations, or even both. Whether you are planning an entire wedding weekend, or perhaps wedding at home in a marquee, a wedding planner will ensure you have the best celebrations possible.

They not only will bring creativity in abundance, but they will ensure it is executed beautifully too.
