Questions and Answers

Why use a Wedding Planner?

Middleton Events

When someone writes a great article, I think it’s a shame not to share it – so click here for one of my faves.

When you hire a planner, you aren’t relinquishing your part in the planning process (unless you choose to do so), but you are gaining an experienced assistant whose sole purpose is to help you and your groom pull your ideas together, make the day run smoothly and assist you to save money by offering cost-saving tips and discounts from vendors you might not get on your own. 

I’m going to go out on a limb here – hearing “my friend or relative is going to help me plan my wedding” is one of the most frustrating things to hear from a new bride.

Not because it is business I will lose, but because the average wedding takes hundreds of hours to plan, and you may end up essentially putting your friend/relative to work. Time and time again, I have seen this pressure add immense stress to relationships and lead to a very stressful wedding day all around.

The last thing you want is your loved ones to dread hearing the word ‘wedding’ and wish they had never offered to help.

A wedding planner is a third party who does not have an attachment to either bride or groom and can step in the middle of disagreements about planning details when family want to add their input. We are there to review contracts and make sure you are getting a fair price and there are no hidden fees. We have purposely developed relationships with trustworthy wedding vendors and can save a couple money (as well as heartache) from hiring vendors who may provide a sub-standard service. These are often things friends and family members have no experience with.

So when you have a friend or family member getting engaged and they want YOU to help with their wedding… please say no. You will be doing them and yourself a big favour. Instead, show them this article or any article that explains the benefit of a wedding planner.

They will thank you later.

What is a Wedding Planner?

Middleton Events

Many of us have seen Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner – someone who wears colour-coordinated suits, issues orders over a microphone headset and carries water spray inside her jacket to revive nervous fathers. But what do wedding planners really do?

We give wedding dresses that final perfect fluff before the bride walks down the aisle. We take frantic late night phone calls from emotional brides (and grooms). We have calm conversations with protective Mama’s and stressed caterers. We have a florist on speed dial. We have a wedding day emergency kit that would make MacGyver jealous. We are awake long into the night going over every minuscule detail of one of the most important days of someone else’s life.

Why on earth would we want to do that, you ask?

Have you been around two people deep in love? It’s refreshing, it’s uplifting and it’s contagious! Having a slightly-OCD love for organising everything and having plans run smoothly certainly doesn’t hurt. 

I get to use my experience, drive and creativity and apply it to a situation that many people are only in once in their life. To turn it around, if you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime event, why wouldn’t you want someone with experience to help you out?

Do I have any regrets about the long hours and Saturdays away from family? Nope. Have I had any wedding disasters? Nope, not a single one! How many weddings have I planned? 36, at last count. Do I have the best husband in the world? Absolutely (sorry ladies)!

The only negative about being a wedding planner? We never get any cake.

Seriously. It’s a problem.
