Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

Isn’t a wedding planner a bit unnecessary/indulgent and only for big budget weddings?

Attended or seen a fabulous wedding lately? Odds are, the happy couple had professional help. Wedding planners and stylists are not just for the rich and famous. More and more couples are realising that to achieve the wedding they want, they need experts to make it happen.

Plus, apart from being able to help you to stay on budget, negotiate better prices and make your precious dollars go further, we can help to ensure that all that time, money and effort you have put into your wedding is worth it. A wedding is a huge investment, and when you think that you could spend anywhere from $20,000-$100,000+ on your day, it seems a little illogical not to make sure that everything you have been working on and saving for actually turns out the way you want it.

Compared to most wedding budgets, a planner is a relatively small investment and arguably one of the most important. If you want to wing it, that’s totally ok. Plenty of couples go it alone. You just need to consider whether or not you want to maximise the opportunity for you to enjoy every moment of your day, have the wedding you really want and minimise potential for issues or hiccups. Remember, there’s no second chances when it comes to your wedding day.

At what point should I book my planner?

It’s funny, we get a great deal of initial enquiries from brides who then “disappear” with their enquiry pack, only to come back later in the planning process and find we are booked out- or even still, they’ve paid too much or booked the wrong suppliers.

The best way is to get in touch early. We are more than happy to jump on a free consultation and give you some free advice.

We’d actually love to squash the common misconception that a planner is a luxury and something to book down the track of the journey.  A good planner should actually make your budget work harder and save you money!

If I book a free consultation with Darling Don't Panic, am I under any further obligation

No – your first consultation with DDP is always complimentary and completely obligation free. At the end of the consultation you can choose whether you would like us to secure your date, which can be done with payment in full (small discount applies) or you can just leave a 50% deposit and pay off the rest before your event.

How long does it really take to plan a wedding?

The average time it takes to plan a wedding is around 200 – 250 hours. That’s 6 weeks of full time work!  If you want something extraordinary, something chock full of gorgeous details you will need to spend at least that many hours if not more. And, if you’re planning your big day in a marquee or empty space, and you don’t have any previous event planning experience, plan for 300+ hours at a minimum. Don’t worry though, DDP can create a downright fabulous occasion for you.

We have the skills, experience, contacts and commitment to ensure your perfect day actually happens (and it won’t take us 200 hours to do it).

I don’t know what I want - I’m totally overwhelmed – should I get in touch?

Yes. In fact, we would recommend it. So many couples (let’s be honest, mostly brides) waste precious time confused and overwhelmed while they jump from one idea to the next and try to find some kind of clarity and direction.

Don’t panic – not knowing what you want or how you’re going to achieve it is completely normal. The sooner you get in touch with us the sooner we can help you to get all those ideas and options and sort them into a concept that feels like it fits. Once you have your direction clear, everything will become instantly easier.

Thank you Jac and the team at Darling Dont Panic for coordinating our wedding day and finalising all of the details leading up to it. It was such a pleasure to work with Jac, and she took a huge weight off our shoulders leading up to the day to finalise and confirm everything with the vendors we had chosen. After planning most of the wedding ourselves, it was so worth it having some one else to come in at the final stage just to make sure everything ran smoothly and to sort out any hiccups. Jac made sure that we were kept updated throughout set up and was able to answer any questions we had quickly. We will be recommending DDP to everyone we know! Thank you again!!

Thanks so much Louisa! A joy working on this event for you!
