Once the euphoria of getting engaged settles down, couples realise how extensive the planning of a wedding can be – from choosing a wedding venue to all the other different elements that need to come together perfectly – and can quickly become overwhelmed!

You can easily become lost as to how much money you should spend, where to obtain professional, specialised services and how to choose vendors; feeling generally shocked at how much preparation and organisation goes into a wedding.

Couples have to think about everything from the wording of the invitations, their colour pallet, their opening dance and even planning a honeymoon. That’s where your wedding planner comes in – they can take a lot of the organisational burden off your shoulders and help you have a stress-free wedding!

It was not that long ago that having a wedding planner was considered a luxury, but these days a wedding planner is the key to a well-planned wedding. Because a wedding planner is more experienced when it comes to negotiating with vendors and service providers like florists, caterers, photographers and other wedding suppliers, they can help you save a lot of valuable time and money.

The average wedding can take more than 250 hours to plan, making it near impossible to fit everything into an already hectic, but a wedding planner will ensure that you get the best deal and have all the details in place, ready for you to make the right final decision.

Wedding planning services have become such a popular choice for couples that exclusive wedding venues are offering these services themselves – making use of all the great connections they have in the industry. This is a great, cost-effective choice as you’ll have someone who knows exactly how to get the best out of your venue and whose services come with your wedding package.
