This past year it seemed that everyone under the sun got married, myself included. ( Seems like people took the movie 2012 too literally!)
For most brides the experience is kind of daunting. It can be overwhelming, it can really over take every aspect of a person’s life. What’s more, for a lot of South Asian families it is very much a family affair. So, obviously, the family is running around for the most part like chickens with their heads cut off. They are so busy running last minute errands, making last minute changes, and trying to get themselves ready all the while taking part in the myriad of ceremonies that constitute a wedding.
This is where a wedding planner becomes essential.
A wedding planner is someone who has an invested interest in making your day a true reflection of what you envisioned. If hired for a full co-ordination service, they can help in a whole host of different ways. Some of the ways they can help you in a full co-ordination contract are the following:
- Budget creation / budget management
- Venue scouting and recommendations
- Vendor scouting
- Contract management
- Creating schedules
- Theme development
- Counselling and advice for a stressed out bride
- Coordinating family involvement
Along with this, the wedding planner will do the following on the day of the event:
- Make sure that all the vendors are fulfilling their contracts
- All the items that needed to be brought to the venue are there
- All vendors are paid
- Make sure that schedules are being followed
- Problem solving
- Guest management
Not to mention all the other situations that may arise that they need to get involved in to make sure that the event runs smoothly and seamlessly.
A wedding planner is supposed to act as family, and take care of the details, big or small, so that you and your family can be guests at your wedding and enjoy it to the fullest.
