Preparing  for your Wedding  

 

First, your husband-to-be has gotten down on one knee and made you the happiest person in the world...  Now the real excitement starts and the planning of your wedding.

 

All couples want their day to be special and that takes lots of planning...

 

Firstly, take your time.  You only get to plan your wedding once. So, make sure it is relaxed...

 

Decide on the kind of celebration you want and don’t feel pressurised. Allow your wedding to be the way you choose.

 

Decide on your budget and how much you can afford to spend.  One of the biggest factors in a wedding budget is the number of guests.

 

 

Think long and hard on the style of dress you want. The way to go, is a dress that is comfortable and makes you feel like a million dollars...  Choose a trusted hair stylist and make-up artist. Make a visit prior to the wedding day.

 

The most important thing is that your wedding day is very special, and you look forward to it being the happiest and relaxing day, celebrating with family and friends.

 

Why not enjoy choosing a wedding planner to customise your special day?

 

I would be only delighted to arrange to meet and discuss your wedding plans, to make your wedding memorable.

 

Sincerely, Frances

Hiring Vendors

A wedding day is comprised of multiple vendors coming together to create the perfect ceremony and reception. The wedding planner presents the bride, groom, parents or any other party involved in the planning process with options for each vendor service. This includes rental equipment, caterers, reception venues, florists, cake and dress designers, a DJ or band, an officiant, and any other wedding necessities. The planner offers recommendations of vendors with whom she has had a pleasant past experience. The planner will note the bride and groom’s style and requirements and relay this information to each vendor to ensure the couple is pleased with all aspects of the wedding day.

 

Communication

The planner maintains all contact and communication with the vendors. If the vendors have a question or concern, the planner can usually address these issues without involving the couple. If necessary, the planner will relay any questions to the bride or groom and then report back to the vendor. The wedding coordinator must make certain that all vendors arrive on time on the day of the event. Each vendor should have the coordinator’s cell phone number in the event of an emergency.

Working with the Wedding Party

The coordinator must instruct the bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, ring bearers, parents and officiant on how to stage the ceremony and make entrances at the beginning of the reception. This often involves working with the musicians or DJ to ensure attendants enter and exit at the correct time. The coordinator should also instruct the best man and maid of honour when to give their speech during dinner. If any attendants have issues or questions on the day of the wedding, they should direct them to the coordinator instead of the bride, groom or parents.

Assisting on the Wedding Day

The coordinator is available to assist the bride and groom with whatever they need on the day of the wedding. The coordinator is armed with hairspray, mints, tissues, makeup, perfume and anything else the bride may need immediately before the ceremony or reception. The coordinator may need to help the bride bustle her dress after the ceremony, provide more comfortable shoes, or assist with hair and makeup touch-ups.
