Why choose a wedding planner?
Planning your wedding is a very exciting time but it can also be a daunting process. Most couples have busy lives and a wedding planner can save you time and money, and take the stress out of preparing for one of the most important days of your life. This will not lessen the excitement of organising your wedding day – you will remain in control and make all the decisions.
A wedding can be expensive to organise and, while you may feel that this is an added cost, in the long run we can save you money. We will listen to your ideas and then, using our local knowledge, suggest ways to achieve your perfect wedding within budget. Any discounts we negotiate are passed on directly to you and we are confident that, by using our past experience, we can find you extra savings. Your special day does not need to cost a fortune as the happiest memories often come from a wedding arranged on a very limited budget!
In the run up to the big day itself, we will check all of the arrangements to make sure everything is in order. We will then co-ordinate on the day of the wedding, giving you total peace of mind. This allows the bridal party to have a stress-free day, safe in the knowledge that, should any last minute problems occur, then we are on hand to help find a solution.
Alternatively, you may have organised all of the wedding yourself but as time draws nearer you would like to pass the responsibility of the day over to someone else. Although family and friends are keen to be involved it is not always possible for them to help on the day as they are also guests at your wedding. We provide an extra pair of hands to take control, so you and your family can relax and enjoy the day.
