Planning a wedding can be difficult and very stressful. That is why hiring a wedding planner (Like us!) will make the day less stressful and more fun! Whilst planning your wedding there will be some difficult decisions to make and struggles that you may face.
Here are a few examples that we will help you deal with;
Whether it's on the day or trying to control the planning, difficult guests can change your dream wedding into a nightmare. Guests, especially family members, can feel as though they should be able to make decisions about the wedding and may get upset if their ideas aren't used. As wedding planners, we can handle these guests diplomatically whilst standing strong in your corner. We only want what you want, not what anyone else wants.
Sticking to the Budget
Budgets, however big or small, are difficult to stick by. You want your wedding to be special and want it to go perfectly, and sometimes things can get away from you. Then you've suddenly blown your budget and you've only planned the ceremony! As wedding planners, we know how to stick to a strict budget whilst still making your day magical.
Letting Others Control the Guest List
Your wedding day is for you and your partner, and you should be surrounded by people that you want to be there. Often couples feel pressured to add people that they don't particularly want at their wedding to the guest list. If you let other people dictate your guest list or invite people, most often family members, you feel obligated to invite even if you dislike/don't get along with can ruin the day for you.
Not Researching Your Vendors Properly
Finding a vendor, such as photography, catering, venue etc, can be difficult and become overwhelming. Research, research, research! There are a lot of vendors to choose from and they are not all good. Asking for client referrals or looking for reviews online is always a good way to understand how good a vendor is and if they are worth the money. As event planners, we are experts at finding and researching vendors for you and can take a lot of the stress away.
Having Unrealistic Expectations
We all make mistakes, and that includes your vendors. Some mistakes may happen and it is unrealistic to think everything will be exactly as you imagine. That is why we, as wedding planners, make the day less stressful by sorting out all the mistakes before you even realise they have occurred. We can help your day be as close to perfect as possible.
