There's a lot to think about when planning a wedding, and one of the first decisions will be whether you hire a planner or stylist to help you pull together your special day.
We understand the task ahead can be daunting—where do you start? Which suppliers should you choose? How will you manage the budget? What price should you really be paying? Planning and styling weddings are our forte—we have a stack of experience, great ideas, and wonderful relationships with an array of reliable and quality suppliers. It's what we do and mostly what we love doing!
We’ve listed eight reasons why you should hire us to create your vision:
- Weddings are consuming!
That's right! Weddings are consuming in every way. You end up talking, thinking and stressing weddings! Did you know that the average wedding takes 250 hours to organise—yikes! Researching suppliers, driving to appointments, scrolling through Instagram, number crunching—is your mind going into overload already? Hiring a wedding planner or stylist frees up your time to enjoy the lead-up and not get behind on your social life and other commitments.
- You need help making your vision a reality.
Have you trawled through Instagram, pinned until you can no longer find new inspiration, and flicked through every popular wedding magazine to find so many things you need to have at your wedding, but then you come to realise that you're not sure about how you're going to bring it together? What linen colour will match? Should you choose gold foiling? Call in the pros to turn your vision into reality — it’s what we’re good at and what we love to do!
- Get involved in the fun stuff and leave out the boring jobs!
Wedding tasks aren't that glamorous: sending quotes to suppliers (and getting them right), organising bus services, and number crunching. Wouldn't it be nice to pick and choose the jobs you would like to do, like cake tasting, meeting your florist, and joining us on a visit the furniture hire company, just because you can? Having a planner/stylist allows you to choose how much or how little you’d like to be involved. It allows you to focus on the fun and miss out on all the boring and stressful bits!
- No surprises on the day!
Imagine having the confidence you’ll walk into your reception knowing every detail has been thought of, every drama has been dealt with, and everything looks the way you imagined. Sounds like music to your ears, right?
- We’ll sweat the details.
So. Many. Details. Chances are you've never planned an event of this size, not to mention an event you’ve dreamed about since you were 10! Planners know what to do. We've done it before, a stack of times, so we'll be sure to check off every detail you might otherwise overlook.
- Negotiate! Negotiate! Negotiate!
Have a budget and need to stick to it? We'll always try our best to get the most bang for your buck. It's all about negotiating with suppliers and adjusting things so it works for all. Sometimes, it as easy as removing an item that isn't as important to get the right figure.
- Remove any indecisive moments.
You don’t want to spend hours sourcing suppliers and then racking your brain trying to decide on which is best. We understand that every decision is important, not to mention costly, so we'll direct you to the right supplier, who is trustworthy, experienced, and reliable.
- New ideas, creating something of your own
It's easy to get caught up in what other people have done on their big day. We're here to push the boundaries, to give your ideas an oomph, to create a day that is so special which reflects you and your relationship.
