INTERVIEW TO MYSELF: WHAT DOES A WEDDING PLANNER DO?
Today I have decided to interview myself. I have done it by answering the three most significant questions that I have been asked since I have started this job.
I thought it would be a good idea because I like speaking about my job and explaining what my competences and peculiarities are.
I hope this article will be helpful for those who are thinking whether to rely on a wedding planner for the organisation of their wedding.
WHAT DOES A WEDDING PLANNER TAKE CARE OF?
The wedding planner takes care of the whole planning part of the wedding. From the choice of the location, to the attentive selection of the suppliers and the coordination of each of them.
THE SUPPLIERS YOU SUGGEST CAN BE FOUND ON WEDDING WEBSITES OR GOOGLE. WHY SHOULD WE RELY ON A WEDDING PLANNER IF WE CAN FIND THEM ON OUR OWN? WHAT IS YOUR ADDED VALUE?
The websites are very useful tools. They offer many professionals of any kind. I won’t deny, even we planners check on them constantly to find something new.
The added value of a wedding planner is knowing the suppliers in person, being aware of their qualities and flaws in order to easily find the most suitable ones for each couple.
Each supplier is carefully selected. Qualify the right partners is an ongoing job that never stops. It implies riding kilometres by car, surveys, negotiations and a constant update on services and feedback from the clients. Our job depends on their reliability.
The part where the wedding planner makes a difference is the management and coordination of all those you will choose on your most beautiful day, telling them all your requests, making sure not to forget any small detail, relieving almost completely from the stress of the wedding.
DO YOU ALSO TAKE CARE OF SETTING UP THE LOCATION?
No, I would rather do what I can do best: planning and coordinating. That is why Wedding Design is a design-purposed department within With Love, Wedding.
