Wedding planners are the experts when it comes to designing, planning and co-ordinating a wedding and will be able to advise, inspire and fully orchestrate your big day from start to finish.
Different to wedding stylists and co-ordinators, wedding planners will take on every eventuality and ensure even the finest of details is in place on the day. Although not every couple will hire help with their wedding planning, for professional couple with busy day jobs or small children, they are worth every penny. Experienced professional wedding planners will have all the best supplier contacts who they will have worked with countless times before so they know who is good and how they work. They may be able to strike deals with some venues for you so you could find you actually save hundreds if you choose the right planner rather than trying to do it yourself.
For destination weddings abroad, wedding planners really come into their own, as it can be very difficult to arrange to see venues and meet with so many individual suppliers when you’re in another country. If they are based in the country in which you intend to marry and know the local venues and suppliers then you can trust their judgement and let them do the research for you. They will also be able to advise you on the all-important legal aspects of getting married abroad, from which documents you need to arrange to have translated to how long you may need to be resident in the country before you will be allowed to marry there. Communication should be regular and can be easy and free using Skype.
Wedding planners are not essential for every couple however, and many enjoy planning their own wedding in their own way with the help and inspiration of online resources such as Confetti, but if a wedding planner is the right thing for you, you'll find plenty of choice on confetti.co.uk
