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!
Starting the weekend after Easter, the peak season for weddings is seen by many as the most ideal time period for their special day. The peak season reaches its high in May, June and the beginning of July. September is also a popular month, and October brings the peak season to a close.
But exactly why are these months so popular? Apart from guaranteeing the couple a sunny wedding, it also brings to the table a multitude of wedding themes like an outdoor wedding with a night of fireworks, beach weddings, pool and garden weddings as well as boat weddings. Moreover, the spring/summer season provides the benefit of fresh fruit and vegetables for all the health conscious couples. Last but most definitely not least, the colours of the season derived from nature with flowers for spring and lemons for summer. Additionally it’s the perfect season for a bright colour wedding.
Being the most popular season for weddings, the couple needs to be on top of all bookings and they need to be finalised with ample time in advance. Booking at least two years in advance is necessary when the wedding is on a Saturday or eve of a Public Holiday. Having a contingency plan for your wedding venue is always an important thing to reduce stress in case the weather does not cooperate, especially if the venue chosen does not offer both an indoor and outdoor area.
The same reasoning applies for suppliers. Wedding vendors and service providers are all maxed out during peak season. The couple needs to book the suppliers well in advance, especially when they have specific requests of what they want.
Expectedly, peak season offers higher prices, and its exactly the season to avoid if you’re either running a wedding on a limited budget, or you want to go against the norm.
