Your memorable weddingLAST week’s article was about how the fourth finger came to be the wedding ring finger, what the ring symbolises and how best you can protect and take care of the valuable ring.
Wedding is all about love, unity and smiles, so do not let the money, family and decision making cause you to forget what it is all really about.
This week’s article is all about the role of a wedding planner before and during the wedding preparations and on the day of the celebrations.
A wedding planner is a person who assists with the design, planning and management of a client’s wedding.
Weddings are significant events in people’s lives and as such couples are often willing to spend considerable sums of money to ensure that their weddings are well organised.
The role of a wedding planner is to ensure that all of the elements of the wedding come together in a way that makes the couple’s wedding dream come true.
The wedding planner is not only a relationship builder or a person who just sources for vendors they are the middlemen between the family member and the couple.
The other role of a wedding planner is that they keep the big pictures in mind and assists the couple in staying within the budget and deciding on the themes and style for the wedding.
A wedding planner takes on the stress so that you will not have to be stressed.
A planner is the one who responds to all the questions from family, friends, and opinion leaders and then from various people which includes the caterer, bakers, florists, manager of the venue.
The wedding planner serves as the focal point person, so as the bride and groom you only have to deal with one contact and this is your wedding planner.
They will coordinate all of the meeting and be there to remember the detail, plus ask the right questions and most importantly the planner will be there on the big day to make sure everything, l mean everything runs smoothly so you can be with your family and friends.
Brides and grooms, it is valuable to know what is important to you and put your money there.
If food is your thing, then you might want to throw extra money into the catering budget.
If you are a music lover, well then you might want to put a greater amount of money there.
That’s why it is important to discuss with anyone who has a say in the wedding preparations about the things that you care the most and in what order.
A wedding planner will offer guidelines about what is within your price range.
It is easy to get excited about all the possibilities and make a uniformed choice, but a planner will serve as a great resource since they often know the acceptable range of what a service is worth.
A wedding planner is in the position to work on multiple events and they have created a rapport with the florists, photographers, caterers, designers and cake makers.
Not only do they spend their time on researching and meeting the above mentioned to know the best that’s out there for every budget they also refer couples to vendors constantly.
As a result of all these referral, a vendor is more likely to negotiate with a wedding planner since they can give them business repeatedly.
As we continue to look at the roles of a wedding planner, the other thing is that they will make you relax with your family and the bridal party so that you can freely take a stroll through the set-up of the wedding and check everything out.
A wedding planner will help you not to be on phone trying to figure out when the cakes will arrive, or if at all the food and other necessary stuff for the wedding celebrations are bought.
This is probably one of the most favorite things about having a wedding planner because they take charge of all that for you wow! Isn’t that wonderful!

Another good thing about having a wedding planner is that they will marry your ideas and thoughts into the overall process as well as ensure that what you’ve worked so hard on comes to fruition in a seamless flowing manner.
Many brides are trying to plan their wedding with no knowledge of how to throw a large scale event.
Being part of a bridal party or attending a wedding does not give you the full knowledge on how to plan a successful wedding.
A wedding planner has seen many events worked with different clients and has also seen real situations.
A planner is in the unique position to know what things should cost in every range.
They can tell you if you are being cheated or if that expensive photographer really isn’t so expensive after all.
They know what questions to ask your vendors and how to schedule the day so that you can get your photos taken, your guests fed, and speeches completed and everyone out on the dance floor.
Even if you hire a wedding planner, you will be in control over what happens for your wedding.
It will just be with more guidance, knowledge and a directed focus and on the day of the wedding oh my goodness!
You will be able to just be a bride, so why not just let go to everything, walk down the aisle in style and enjoy your day.
Many people often mistake the venue coordinators as wedding planners.
The truth of the matter is that they are there to sell to you.
They are salespeople who handle logistical matters for the venue, therefore needing to have a relationship with you.
They sell the venue, the food, the space and the fact that they will be there to help you plan the wedding but they won’t. Their concern is the venue.
When it comes to planning, the only thing they are going to do is ask you when you want the food to be served for your invited guests.
They will not make appointments for you, help you pick out your dress, suit, and shoes or create a timeline for your whole wedding day.
They are going to be there on the day of your wedding but the truth of the matter is that they will not be there when you need them to tell you when to cut the cake or remind you about the honeymoon bag.
The wedding planner is a tie breaker, in case the bride and the groom cannot decide on something, it can be wedding colour theme or the way the ceremony is going to run, the wedding planner is always there to give her trustworthy opinion and break that tie.
They know what works and what keeps an event moving.
A lot of people think they cannot afford to hire a wedding planner because there are on a tight budget. But you know what?
If you have a wedding planner, they will be able to help you with that budget and they will also be able to tell you what you need and what you do not need.
Honestly speaking, every bride and groom need and should have a wedding planner for you to put up that memorable wedding.
Wedding planners are not just for stars or celebrities or daddy’s little girls, having a wedding planner should not be considered an option or luxury.
They are not expensive all you just have to do is find the right one.
Hiring a wedding planner is the wedding gift that you gift to yourself and one of the most important things that a planner can do for a bride and groom is to provide them with a peace of mind.
With a wedding planner the couple won’t have to worry that something has been over looked or will slip through the cracks.
Hiring a planner will make the planning process stress free and enjoyable.
A planner will ensure that the wedding day is seamless and will ultimately allow the bride and groom to be guests at their own wedding.
