Why need wedding planners? Man & Woman have different thinking. Too many advice from different groups of people. No experience in wedding & management of people. No experience in negotiating with wedding vendors. No experience in planning orders. No risks & stress free.
Man & Woman have different thinking Man- Fact shopper
Thinks of budget.
Sees in general.
Fast in making decision.
Sees the short term. (Visual)
Wedding is a process.
Woman- Emotional shopper
Thinks of the result.
Sees the details.
Detail in making decision.
Sees the long term (Emotion)
Wedding is a Dream come true.
With a wedding planner, we can join the strength of the man & woman instead of them fighting because of their own ideas, being as the third party we can help them to be clear & understand each other. As most fight will come from the difference of preferences.
Too much of advice
Advice is good but have to learn to filter, you still have to be responsible for your action.
Understanding where your advice is coming from.
Filtration will prevent you from confusion.
Understand what you want because IS your wedding! Only you know…
Family & relative can play the supporting role but NOT planning role! As Day plan, Event plan, Transport plan, Guest plan you need to know.
When situation happen, people will point finger at others rather than themselves.
Wedding planners have the experience and know how to handle when situation happen.
Couple role is to take care of guest & be happy, not a wedding planner who is checking on the event, you should be there to enjoy what you have planned.
No experience in managing groups of people
Interview groups of wedding vendors. Eg: wedding studio, photographer, videographer, make-up artist …etc
Big planning like a wedding takes practice to prefect it, first timer experience will be a big risk cause of many things & details, long hours & emotions to complete this big task.
No experience negotiating with wedding vendors
Most vendors will be willing to work with wedding planners as partners rather than a one time business.
Most customers try to ask for discount but we ask for corporate rate so that we can market for them.
We know most vendors and how they calculate their cost.
We will understand the vendors’ strength & weaknesses and whether is suitable for your wedding.
We will continue to build stronger business relationships to understand each other to work as a team.
No experience in planning orders
Generation gap - 30yrs ago planning of wedding have changed.
Trends & expectations have changed.
Nowadays, the young ones wants to have simple wedding, very different from the olden days.
Planning start from the moment you wake up on the actual day till you sleep that night.
Planning for more than a 20-hour event & movement of different groups of people & tasks of every single person that are involve in the wedding.
Making sure they remember what you say & ask them to do.
Proper planning prevent poor performance = 5Ps
Assuming is the common mistake of most first time planning. Thinking that someone will take care of this & that, until last minute then realized that things are not taken care of and there will be extra cost to solve it.
No risks & stress free
Having someone who specializes in wedding planning will make you feel that a lot of things are taken care of.
Knowing that you can focus on your wedding and enjoy the freedom that no one will bother you on the wedding day.
Knowing & guidance from wedding planning prevents misunderstanding between couples and help them focus in the same direction.
Knowing & guidance help to save time & money so that you can enjoy your wedding preparation.
Don’t misunderstand that engaging a wedding planner mean you have nothing to do. There are still many things to do but we will do the more detailed and important part. Eg: guest list no one can help you to do, we will guide you on how many types of formats of guest list to create & who to invite.
