REAL STORY

Some ten years ago as my husband and I were planning our wedding, he suggested that we should hire a wedding planner. I promptly said no, thinking we didn’t need one nor could afford one. To be honest, I had no idea what a wedding planner even did and how they could have helped us. If I knew then what I know now, how a wedding planner could have saved us significant time and money, I’d say that I couldn’t afford not to hire one!

We were a busy young couple building our home and running a business. We had limited time to devote to planning our wedding and ended up selecting the first suppliers we contacted without comparing our options. Even if we did make time to shop around, we didn’t have any leverage to negotiate or knowledge of what to be looking for!

As an experienced events professional now, I wish that I had invested in a planner, believing that not only would we have had more time and money to ourselves but that their knowledge, advice, guidance and expertise would have been invaluable. After helping our clients with tailored supplier recommendations and using our industry expertise to allow them to save money in one area so they can afford to splurge in another, I wish that I had been able to reap the same benefits 10 years ago. I can’t even imagine what it would have been like if we had had children along with the house build and the business!

If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat.
