Anyhooo continuing on the series of Saturday guest posters, today i have a great little article from Louise at Bow Occasions on why couples should consider having a wedding planner, take it away Louise….
Planning a wedding is technically a full time job in itself. Nowadays, the average wedding takes an average of 250 hours to organise. Before you know it, weekends, evenings and lunch hours become taken up with planning your wedding.
Hiring a wedding planner will allow you to enjoy the planning process. Your wedding planner will keep you informed every step of the way ensuring that you are still in full control.
Whilst wedding planners are used regularly in the US, they are unfortunately still seen as a luxury in the UK. The preconception being that wedding planners are only hired by those with big budgets – not true! Most of the time, wedding planners will actually save you money. As we work with suppliers on a regular basis we can negotiate discounts based on repeat business, whereas for a bride and groom, you only get married once.
As well as helping with the organisation of a wedding, wedding planners are there to take away the stress that planning a wedding can cause. We will be there to support you every step of the way.
What about if you want to plan your own wedding? What else can we offer? Bow Occasions offers a wide range of services including The Final Weeks, Wedding Day Management and also Venue and Supplier Sourcing. Wedding Day Management is a very popular service as it allows you to relax and enjoy your day knowing that a professional is there to take care of everything from suppliers not arriving on time to guests getting the wrong meal.
