Wedding planners essentially organise the wedding for the bride and groom. They generally have event management and planning experience and are very well organised, taking the stress out of planning the wedding from the bride and groom.
Wedding planners can be as involved as the bride and groom request. They can take care of every little detail to do with the wedding, including helping choose the wedding dresses and flowers, organising the wedding invitations and even sourcing the right wedding cake. Wedding planners are highly skilled professionals who ensure that every detail is taken care of. Often, they are aware of details that a first-time bride and groom may not have even thought of. Wedding planners generally meet with the bride and groom and work out a brief of the event. It’s important that a budget is established and adhered to. Some wedding planners are consulted very early in the wedding process, and assist with choosing everything from the reception venue to the honeymoon destination.
The wedding planner is usually in charge of the logistics on the day of the wedding so the bride and groom can relax and just enjoy the day. Wedding planners will often source decorations and be the point of contact for the reception, ceremony venue, photographer and other professionals that play a role in the lead-up to and the wedding day. It’s important to engage the services of a wedding planner that understands exactly the type of wedding the couple desire, and can work within a budget to help the couple achieve their dream wedding.
