What is a wedding Planner.
If you watch the movies every girls dream is to have someone plan their wedding. The funny thing about wedding planners are they are not cheap. If you are having a wedding and you are working and don’t have time to plan you wedding then may be a wedding planner is for you. If you want control of your wedding then may be a wedding planner is not for you.
Let’s Pan your Wedding right here on this Blog.
The first thing I would recommend is the wedding planner guide on a budget weather your budget is 1000 or 1000000 this book will help you plan and deliver your wedding and keep you sane. I want every one to have the wedding you want weather you have 100 dollars or several million. SO lets figure out your dream wedding.
How big is the wedding going to be?
Now I know every girls dreams is to have a huge wedding with a thousand guest. The Knight in shining armor taking her away. but wait, that only happens in fairy tales.
Remember every for every guest you plan on there is a cost. You might say a guest has a cost. Yes from the does to a place at the table to the size venue you choose.
We have just begun and we are already talking money yes the wedding is one big party so get used to talking money. The smaller the wedding the lest the cost. Think about this just for a moment if you planned on Joe coming to the wedding and it cost ten dollars per person then you are planning on spending ten dollars for Joe. A few days before the wedding Joe calls and says ” I hope you dint mind but several of his friends decided to come and see you get hitches.” You have two problems one is that several of Joe’s friends is coming to see you get married. How many is that?
Several could be as little as three or as many as a hundred at ten dollars a person that could be a lot of money you didn’t plan for. That means once you decide on the size of the wedding you need to try to keep it that way.
Where will the wedding Be
Most brides knows where she wants to be married weather it be in a lake, in a church, in a historical house. There are so many places to choose from. You could have a wedding planner go look at them for you but if you want the feel you really need to go look at them your self.
Most places will have a charge from 700 to several thousand dollars for the two or three hour the wedding will be hosted there. I have found if the bride and groom will approach the person who has the venue and talk about what they want they will get it cheaper than if a wedding planner comes in and says the couple loves the place how much.
Think about it do you really need a wedding planner?
The more you think about it the cost keeps going up and if you are paying for a wedding planner you have to add that cost too. while we are here lets look at the duties of a wedding planner. I will answer that question in the next post. In the mean time why don’t you try the book.
