When should I book a Wedding Planner?
Ideally you start planning your wedding about 18 months prior to your ideal date, as many venues and good suppliers get booked well in advance. Having your Wedding Planner booked at this time means they can work to negotiate the best deals for you right from the start. However, we also offer a partial planning package, which is perfect if you are closer to your wedding date but need assistance with certain aspects or even an 'Just on the Day' Wedding Coordinator which usually is booked 2-3 weeks in advance.
Why do I need a Wedding Planner if my venue already has a wedding coordinator?
Most good venues have a wedding coordinator who can help with all things venue related and may be able to recommend some suppliers that regularly do weddings at their venue. However, as your Wedding Planner we will be bringing together ALL aspects of your day, keeping everything within your budget, managing all bookings and acting as a main point of contact for all suppliers from the run up to the day to after you go off on Honeymoon . A venue wedding coordinator will be managing just the aspects of your wedding that relate purely to the venue itself.
Will I still feel like i'm in control of my own wedding if I book a Wedding Planner?
A good wedding planner is there to help deliver your vision on your day. We are there for you. We will listen to your ideas and work with you and advise you, and then work to turn your dreams into reality. However, you should also be aware that we will be clear with you when things do not work or are not possible. Because of our experience and knowledge, we should be able to foresee any issues that might arise and avoid them happening. We will also deal with any last minute changes allowing you to enjoy your wedding without any last minute stress. We will always have your best interests at heart and we want you to have a wonderful day and enjoy the process along the way.
We would like to have our party professionally organised, can you do that too ?
Yes, we can organise birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, retirement dinners, either fully planned or part planned. Ask for a free no obligation consultation and we can chat through what you options are and how it all works so you can make an informed decision if you want us to arrange your party.
We don't want a normal or traditional wedding - can you still help me?
The answer is Yes! We can help with different cultural aspects of any marriage celebration. Civil ceremonies are also far more popular these days and there are lots more options available. There are certain legal requirements for the marriage to be recognised in the UK and we can help to ensure you comply with them. We can also work with you on unusual themed or location-led weddings and as open minded & creative wedding planners we would be delighted to work with you on diverse & inclusive celebrations for all couples.
