If you had to ask us, when hiring a wedding planner it almost feels like you get yourself a fairy godparent like in all those Disney movies. While it is with a sad and deep regret that we admit that we haven't as of yet acquired magical abilities nor own a fully functioning magic wand, we do have a whole lot of love and care towards creating beautiful weddings. Our super power lies in creating a stress free planning process for the couple and also makes sure that the budget is stuck to as effectively as possible.
Many seem to believe that wedding planners only care about making money and insist that they don't really care about making people happy. However, truth of the matter is, wedding planners do this job out of pure passion in seeing couples getting happily married without having to stress too much about all the logistics. Moreover having guests at a wedding implies the need of giving 110% towards making them happy. A happy couple added to a group of excited and satisfied guests makes a job well done. Being greedy and seeking only money will only kill any sort of future work or success!
Others believe that hiring a wedding planner is too expensive and the only way a wedding planner would work with you is if you have a large or unlimited budget. This is most definitely not true. Here at My Wedding Planner we strive to bring to our lovely couple the best deals on the market and will make sure to fit everything within one's budget, as tight as it may be. In fact, we also work with on-the-day wedding planners packages especially for people who either, on the most part, want to plan the wedding on their own or else would just need a little extra help on the day itself.
Another myth that unfortunately seems to scare many couples is the idea that the wedding planner will eventually take over their wedding. However, truth of the matter is, the wedding planner will sit with you and create the wedding vision together with you. Then they will find you the necessary suppliers and vendors that will make your dream wedding a reality and supply you with a choice. Like this you have the final say on how exactly your wedding will look like!
You don’t afford hiring an event planner to take care of the whole lead up to your wedding but you need some extra help on-the-day? Did you know you could still hire yourself a wedding planner on-the-day of your wedding? There are a whole lot of benefits when opting for this and we’re going to tell you exactly what they are!
Firstly, your Maid of Honour and Best Man can actually enjoy the wedding and celebrate it with you rather than having to run around the venue making sure that your wedding goes along as planned.
Having a professional working for you on the day will ensure that things run smoothly both in setting up the venue as well as during the wedding process itself.
An on-the-day wedding planner will secure a one point reference for all. In this manner any problem that arises, people know that they’re the go-to person and you secure that no one comes and stresses you, your bridal party or groom's men more than you already are!
Being professional wedding planners, your chosen on-the-day wedding planner can give you guidelines based on actual experience working in weddings. They know exactly what should be avoided and what should be done.
Finally, hiring an on-the-day wedding planner is very cost effective and they are open to bargain a price that is cheaper than direct quoting. Trust us, this will work out cheaper than you think at the end of the day.
