If you have to deal with four seasons in one day, putting some thought in at first is going to help
Congratulations on picking one of the loveliest cities as the venue for your wedding. Maybe you’ve lived in Melbourne all of your life, but your guests who are new to the city will understand why you love it so much the minute they get here.
Where to start the process of planning a wedding is a question that people often start with. There’s the guest list of course and that is a task all on its own, then there’s the venue, and one of the biggest questions – what sort of wedding you want.
Oddly, what most people don’t start with is the budget. Maybe the bride’s father does, especially if he is footing the bill, but it is probably not front and centre of the bride’s mind. But if you can take a step back for a moment, if you do think of budgeting at the start you might find you can do way more than you ever imagined.
Most people just get on with it but there is a better way!
It is a little counter-intuitive but working with a wedding planner in Melbourne can actually get everything you dreamed of within your budget. Think about it for a moment, if you were redoing the kitchen, you’d have your ideas and thoughts, but you’d talk to a professional. This is the same basic concept.
Bring in a Professional
What is a wedding planner going to do that you couldn’t do for yourself? The simple answer is really nothing. You could do the whole thing, but here’s the trick, a wedding planner is going to do it better than you do and the result is that you’ll be able to enjoy your day, and be, as they say, in the moment.
Wouldn’t you rather be mingling with your guests than wondering where the caterer is and who has the buttonholes and why the best man is downstairs and seems to be in his jeans and a t-shirt?
What does a wedding planner do?
A wedding planner is your ally. The wedding planner is the person who is on your side and is going to try to get everything that you want for your special day in place, on time and in the budget. In the early days that might mean some stern talking. No there is not going to be a gold carriage, but they are pretty uncomfortable anyway.
But as you get closer to the big day, and everything is progressing smoothly and without a hiccup, you’ll realise it is the planner in the background who is paying attention to detail and hallelujah, there is nothing for you to worry about.
A wedding planner in Melbourne is going to take your guidance on what you need, but then bring in a whole lot of experience. They’ll guide you away from the bad ideas and even give you some excellent new ideas you’d never have thought of. You have to admit, it is worth a look.
