Why hire a wedding planner?

Many times we hear the term ‘wedding planner,’ and we wonder why we should add an additional cost to our wedding budget. Have you ever thought that a wedding planner can prove to be a lifesaver for the following reasons:

  1. To save money | Weddings can become very expensive. By hiring a wedding planner, the couple can save a considerable amount of money. Wedding planners work with many professionals in the industry and can negotiate prices more effectively. They can also set strict budget limits and stick to them.
  2. To save time | Planning a wedding takes a lot of time! A wedding planner will manage time efficiently, conduct all the research for the right professionals, and come up with unique ideas to make the wedding special.
  3. For everyone to enjoy the wedding | On the wedding day, the wedding planner takes on all the responsibilities that would otherwise fall on family members. Often, every relative has a duty to perform, which prevents them from fully enjoying the day and being there for the couple. Everyone wants to equally enjoy the day!
  4. For psychological support | Weddings can be very stressful! How many times has the couple argued not only among themselves but also with other family members, such as mothers and mothers-in-law? The wedding planner is there to protect these relationships and manage difficult situations.
  5. For aesthetic decoration of the venue | A wedding planner has organized many weddings and knows what works and what doesn’t. With access to countless images on Pinterest and wedding blogs, it’s common for a bride to get confused and not know what to choose or what suits her best. Often, what someone sees on the internet may not easily apply to their own wedding due to the season, location, or budget. The role of the wedding planner is to create a concept that will work perfectly on the day and match the couple’s aesthetic.
  6. They are ‘the person for everything’ | About twenty-two to twenty-five different professionals are involved in a wedding. It’s a large number, and together with the guests and family members, it can cause headaches for the couple. In such cases, the wedding planner takes care of communication with everyone and resolves any issues.
  7. To stick to the schedule | Many professionals need to communicate and cooperate on the wedding day to achieve a perfect result. The wedding planner acts as the conductor and ensures that nothing goes wrong and that everything happens on time.
  8. To handle the unexpected | Whether we like it or not, something or someone may not perform their role correctly on the wedding day. No one wants to see the bride in a panic because the cake wasn’t delivered or the flowers are withered. The wedding planner ensures that any issues are addressed before they become noticeable.
  9. To be present from start to finish | The wedding planner is present from the beginning of the preparations until the end of the reception and takes care of those small details that no one thinks about. Seating guests, ensuring proper service during the meal, and even safe transportation to the reception venue.
  10. For Destination Weddings | Organizing a wedding in a distant location from the couple’s residence or abroad requires extensive preparation. It can be quite challenging to coordinate so many professionals in a place the couple has never been to or where they don’t know anyone. A wedding planner with experience and established connections can make planning a destination wedding much easier.

When should you turn to a Wedding Planner?

First of all, stress hasn’t helped anyone, especially any bride. Wedding preparations can begin 12 months in advance, but you can manage everything even within six months. We would advise you to start organizing gradually and at least plan the first and somewhat more challenging aspects.

So, it would be a good idea in the next few days to decide with your fiancé on the exact date, the venue for your wedding, and the time. Visit the church you desire and book the date and time. Somewhere around there, once you’ve set the date of your wedding and to ensure that both you and the wedding planner have the necessary time frame for meetings and organizing the wedding of your dreams, then schedule your appointment with the wedding planner.

I can suggest ideas for your wedding, guide you, and can either take care of the entire wedding and reception organization, or just a part of it. After all, a wedding planner has knowledge of the market and collaborates with other wedding professionals. They can recommend those they consider most suitable based on your budget, as well as the aesthetics and style of your wedding. Because other professionals and collaborators are involved, it would be good to have a variety of options aligning with your style.

How many professionals are involved in organizing a wedding?

The professionals who work together to make your wedding a reality are neither fewer nor more than the following:

First and foremost, find the priest of your parish or even the parish where you will get married to book the date of your wedding at the church of your dreams.

Second, find the ideal venue for your reception.

Clarify the colorful and varied world of flowers

When the time comes to start preparing for your wedding, one of the first things you will think about is, of course, the decoration and, consequently, your wedding flowers! Because… the truth is that flowers will greatly influence both the color choices of your wedding and the overall style and atmosphere of that day. So, it’s very important to choose your wedding flowers with us! As a florist and at the same time a Wedding Planner, I can guide you by creating flower arrangements that will transform your wedding venue, making it look even more like a fairytale.

Wedding Fairytales company designs, creates, and proposes thematic suggestions tailored to the style of the wedding and the desired budget. Here are some questions that brides have asked me at times… They will help you clarify the colorful and diverse world of flowers.

“Wildflowers… they are my favorite flowers!… Can I use them to maintain a rustic theme at my wedding, and are they more economical?”

Certainly, if you’re getting married in Greece in the spring and not in a place where they bloom in the summer. Just like you, I see many beautiful arrangements from abroad, on Pinterest, with rich and colorful bouquets, even compositions with peonies, dahlias, anemones, freesias… However, these photos are not taken during the Greek summer. These flowers (except for freesias, which are available year-round) do not bloom in the summer. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean you can’t have your wedding with wildflowers. They will be wonderful Dutch or Kenyan flowers that will resemble Greek wildflowers and create unique images at your wedding.

“I’m getting married in August, and I want my bridal bouquet to be made of white peonies. Is it possible? I would like my entire wedding to be adorned with white peonies.”

If the florist manages to find them, the most likely scenario is that they won’t be fresh, as fresh peonies are available in May and June (with the exception of a limited production from Africa in winter, but with a small size and uncertain blooming). Don’t be disappointed, though… David Austin Roses are an option that you will surely like and that will compensate you! Peonies, being a flower that blooms for only a few months a year, also come with a corresponding price… the appropriate budget.
