Have you ever had that feeling like you are drowning in wedding plans - there is so much to organise and so little time?
I have talked to the lovely girls at Your Wedding Kiss about the enormity of wedding planning and asked them to guest blog for us today.
Wedding planners certainly have a role to play in today's wedding climate as our lives get busier and our tastes get more specific... they can make your life so much easier. Check out what advice Kirstie and Tanya from Your Wedding Kiss have.
"Congratulations! You're engaged!! The planning begins...
By now you have probably got a couple of wedding magazines, started to work out your budget and have a general idea of where you want to have your big day.
It's time to think about all those elements and organising all the appointments to get everything to match and book it all.
The best thing to do is make a list of everything you want and require for the day, describe or put a photo against that element and put a realistic budget down
Start thinking of where and when and who and what and why and how....
The break-down of that is:
Where: Location of your ceremony and reception?
When: What season? The day of week? Time of day?
Who: Who is in your Wedding Party? Who is on the guest-list?
What: What is going to be involved for you to have the most memorable day of your life?
How: ???? Wedding Planner!
Some reasons you may want to consider using a wedding planner:
They maintain your theme!!
Think about what style, theme and colours you want for your day! For a wedding planner, this is the most important information, so they can match and style your choices throughout your wedding. It's all about the finishing touches!!
They save you time!!
Most wedding planners take on the responsibility of booking your appointments and setting consultations. Once you delve into the planning of your day, you'll realise how time consuming it becomes and you'll probably think of eloping... Don't! That's what wedding planners are for!!
They know everyone you'll need!!
From the florists, make-up artists, hairdressers, cake makers, celebrants and to even those personal trainers to get you into shape!! Wedding Planners work in the industry and know all the best contacts to deliver on your expectations.
They'll keep you on budget!!
You've already set out your list with your budget attached and your wedding planner will work with your numbers to organise your ultimate wedding. Some wedding planners offer packages and despite common misconceptions, wedding planners are affordable!
You won't have to stress!!
Because your consultations are booked for you, you'll be ticking those things off your to-do list! Don't worry that your photographer may not show up or your flowers won't arrive. They will! Done and dusted! You won't give it a second thought!"
