Should you use a wedding planner?

As a photographer, I often find that people underestimate the work involved in both planning the wedding and making sure that it runs smoothly on the day. Using a specialised wedding planner will significantly reduce your stress-levels and make your special day as enjoyable as possible.

A wedding planner can advise on vendors, locations … all sorts of things. On the day itself, your adrenalin’s going to be pumping around your body at the speed of light and you want to make sure that the flowers arrive on time, the car’s on it’s way, your groom’s at the Church(!), the caterers are ready … etc…. need I go on? Well, a wedding planner can take all of that hassle away from you so that you can enjoy yourself. And if you’re happy and relaxed it makes my job as a photographer easier as well (never said I didn’t have a vested interest here!!).

This link will take you to an excellent article on the subject and gives you a better idea of how planners can help, and if you’re looking for a wedding planner in Dorset, Hampshire or anywhere in the South of England, I’d recommend that you get in touch with Melanie Kiani of Bellissimo Events – based in Bournemouth, Melanie offers a fantastic service to her clientele.

Good luck, and have a great wedding day!

    I am also a professional in the wedding business running a wedding car business and I agree that when a wedding planner is running things everything thing seems to be more relaxed and more enjoyable.

    I think a number of couples completely under estimate how much time, effort and decision making planning a wedding takes. Inevitably they often become stresses and take what they often percieve as the easiest route out, or listen to the parent/supplier/friend who has the most to say but may not always have enough of an over view to know exactly the best advice to give. A good wedding planner is like stress relieving gold dust - the day will be more coherent, more creative and far less stressy and possibly not actually that much more expensive if you hire a planner - highly recommended!
