Wedding planners are no longer just hired by the rich, famous and affluent. With many women opting to pursue demanding careers; they do not necessarily have the time it requires to take on the large scale task of planning a wedding once they get engaged. Other brides find the notion of planning something as big and as important as a wedding somewhat daunting. They don’t always know where to start or they may not feel confident in sourcing the best suppliers, co-ordinating schedules and managing finances. Alternatively, they may wish to take full control of their wedding plans but feel more at ease having a wedding planner present on the wedding day to ensure all their hard work runs like clockwork and to plan. Last but not least, they simply want someone who is there to confide in each step of the way.

Hiring a wedding planner needn’t be a luxury. In fact, a wedding planner is able to save you money by sourcing the best suited suppliers within budget, travel time and expense and endless phone calls, as part of a wedding planner’s role s to do the legwork and running around while the bide and groom concentrate on the fun side of planning such as colour and theme selection bridal attire and venue locations.

Another important aspect of a wedding planner’s role is to help bring ideas to life by listening to the bride and groom’s ideas and creatively making their dreams come true.

Are the above few suggestions as to why you should hire a wedding planner ample to make the decision to go ahead? Kate Leonardi-Green at Engaging Events believes that there is one more crucial aspect to consider before selecting that one person who is responsible for planning the most important and joyful day of your life.

Kate believes that it is very important to have both a degree of experience and training within the field. She has assisted people to plan their various social events and weddings for some time but she took the decision to enrol on the Blackford Centre’s course for wedding planners when she decided to set up her own business as a wedding planner. She gained a Diploma in wedding planning and is now certified as a professional wedding planner. It has given her that extra confidence in having the ability to source the most appropriate and trustworthy suppliers, deal with back up plans and understand how the industry is changing from its original set etiquette into a world of endless fun and memorable opportunities.
