Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Beatrice Poni offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

How do I create a timeline for the wedding day?

I don't know how long everything is going to take so how do I know how to plan out my day? I'm having a winter wedding so I want to do most of the photos before the ceremony. I want to get married during the "golden light" hours so at about 5PM so the reception can follow immediately after.

Hi India 

The best way to plan your day is to map out exactly what you need to do and schedule each item in your preferred order. If you find it difficult to do so, I suggest that you hire a professional to assist you, in order to avoid any errors. This will remove all of the stress off your shoulders and allow you to focus on creating memories rather than worrying about what's happening behind the scene.

I hope this helps



What does an on-the-day wedding coordinator do?

Hi there. We were wondering if it's worth getting a wedding planner just to help us just on our wedding day, kind of take care of the small details and keep stress levels down. Is that what an on-the-day coordinator does? Thanks.

Beatrice Poni

An on-the-day wedding coordinator assists the bride and groom with insuring that their day is run smoothly. They assist with organising vendors and all of the behind the scenes work on your special day. This is a perfect option for couples who are organising their own wedding, because it allows the couple to enjoy their special day. As a bride, you do not want to be constantly looking over your shoulder or worrying about whether or not things will be done according to your preferences. Generally it does help if the couple and coordinator have been in contact throughout the process, in order for coordinator to understand the couple and their needs. 

Someone who I care about, but wasn't invited to the wedding, has asked to come and watch the ceremony

Is this weird? I feel strange about it!

Beatrice Poni

I'm really sorry to hear that.

The first question is, do you want them to attend the ceremony?

If you care about them and definitly want them to attend; you should definitly invite them.

Theres no harm in having them attend, unless there isn't any space left.

Theres also the option to stream your wedding for them if it makes anything better.

I really hope this helps you.


Are wedding deposits refundable?

Beatrice Poni

Hi Love

It really depends on the wedding planners contract. 

Some do refund, so long as you cancel in their cooling off period, and some don't.

Most wedding planners choose not to refund the deposit because they've booked that day off to you and it makes it diffcult for them to rebook someone else.
