What Does a Wedding Planner Do?

You’re a wedding planner? Ok…but, what do you actually do?

This is a question us wedding planners often get asked. At a recent wedding fair, I had to explain the nature of our job to numerous customers and it got me thinking that maybe the time has come when I should do a post like this. And explain what we do and why a wedding planner is your best friend if you want a wedding of your dreams.

1. WE PLAN AND MAKE IT HAPPEN

Planning a wedding is more than deciding on the colour of the flower arrangements. Creating a full event in your budget frame, knowing about every little detail which needs to be taken care of in order for the big day to be successful, securing the right location, vendors and entertainment and preparing and exact time line of your wedding day is a massive job which would take you many sleepless nights. An experienced wedding planner with a vast network of contacts and collaborators takes care of it all without you ever having to worry about a single detail.

2. WE CREATE

Your wedding should be special. Unique. Yours. A wedding planner is like a professional makeup artist for events, we create personalised looks for your wedding days. If the wedding planner is good, no two weddings she works on will look the same and they will all reflect the personality of the newlyweds it has been created for. Use your wedding planner’s expertise and aesthetic sense and you will surely end up with a wedding to remember.

 

3. WE SAVE YOU TIME & MONEY

Now you’re wondering whether I’m joking. But I assure you I am very serious. A wedding planner obviously works for a fee and sometimes it is hard to understand how it is we can actually help you save. Wedding planners are able to secure more affordable rates on services like catering, décor, flowers, entertainment and even location hire by using their networking skills and connections we make during our years in the event industry. In our particular case, being international planners, working in several countries enable us to find lower rates on various materials, decoration etc. for example, printing of wedding invitations might cost less if it is done in Italy rather than the UK. Of course, letting someone else take of all wedding arrangements, saves you a lot of time.

4. WE MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD

A wedding planner is always kind and calm; it’s our job to solve every problem, which may occur during the planning process or on the actual wedding day. A good wedding planner is never caught unprepared and is therefore never nervous or stressed, giving you the possibility of fully immersing yourself in the fun side of organising your wedding day.

5. WE TAKE OVER THE CRAZINESS

On the actual day, the bride and groom shouldn’t have a care in the world. The wedding planner oversees and executes all the tasks like decorating the venue, directing the contractors and arrivals of guests and even solving one or two wardrobe malfunctions on the way. The wedding planner is there to guide you during your photoshoot, the whole wedding reception and is on hand for any organisational glitches (like your cousin falling asleep drunk under the table).
