Planner & Wedding Co-ordinator
Getting professional expertise to plan your special day Planning, selecting, tasting, interviewing and booking… some brides just don’t have the time! If you’re busy or a working professional, hiring a wedding planner can help alleviate many of pressures of organising your wedding.
So, how do you choose a wedding planner? Essentially they make decisions on your behalf so they need to fully understand your personal preferences and tastes. You need to be comfortable with them and be able to communicate what you want clearly. Are you happy to give general guidelines and trust them with the final decision or do you want to have a say in everything? Interview several wedding planners and ask recommendations from friends and family to find the right one for you.
Wedding planners are not just for the wealthy. Today many wedding planners offer several packages to suit a range of budgets. You may want someone to organise everything from start to finish or only need a small amount of help to get you going. One of the great benefits of using a wedding planner is that you will gain access to their trusted local suppliers and be able to take advantage of any discount rates.
