Get A Wedding Planner That Will Help Your Budget As Well
There are a lot of things that should be put into place when preparing a wedding – the menu, the entourage, the venue, the program – and imagine doing all of these by yourself. While it may be fun recreating them on your mind before, but now that you will need to prepare for it, yes, you’ve guessed it right – it will take a lot of legwork and time.
Hiring a wedding planner can remedy all these – imagine a fairy godmother whipping all these up for you – but then again, a fairy godmother wouldn’t cost you a thing, but a wedding planner does.
Here are some ways though that can get you the help that you need at a fraction of the cost.
• Some of your friends may be vocal about helping out. As they are excited for you on your wedding day, some may be willing to help you out on certain tasks – especially if those tasks interest them. One of your friends may be into flowers, or one may have contacts in the catering business – let them help out by coordinating with them for you. Just ensure constant communication so that there will be no misunderstanding that may occur. Do not assume that since they are your friends, they will know what you want. Guide them and work with them –consider their time and effort as their gift to you.
• Ask the advice of a friend who recently got married. She would know that ins and outs of arranging a modern wedding and she will have all the feedback whether the caterer or venue is a good choice or not. She will know the things that you may miss out on. There might even be some ideas that she would want to try out on your wedding (that she was not able to do on hers). It will be exciting as the two of you plan a wedding that will have your ideas in mind and her realistic and practical experience come together.
• You can have a relative as well help you out. A relative of yours may have some spare time and willingness to do some of the coordination and legwork for you. Talk to her first to make sure your wants are clear to her. Some may have a miscommunication as you may need to remind her that this is your wedding, and not hers. Constantly communicate and ensure that everything will go well on the day itself. While you are busy being a blushing bride, know that there is someone you can trust to follow-up matters on the wedding day itself.
What’s most important is that you get to enjoy your wedding on the day itself. Have all the necessary information handed out to your wedding planner and just sit back, relax and enjoy the company of your charming groom on your wedding day – everything will go as planned.
