Wedding is your special day, so we understand how important it is for you. to make this day the best. Planning the perfect wedding is a task and a full-time job as well. Even though you cannot give your entire time to planning, wedding planners are there to help.
So What Does A Wedding Planner Do?
We have seen Hollywood and Bollywood actors getting married with so much glam and organization. Have you ever thought about how does that happens? Indian weddings are filled with color and many ceremonies.
A wedding planner is getting an upcoming trend in India. So, to give an idea about what exactly a wedding planner does we are here to tell you where you will be needing their help. So, while most people think that wedding planner are only in charge of the decor and design, most professionals also offer a complete package where they manage your wedding, end-to-end. A wedding planner will look for a venue shortlist, according to your specifications. To put it even simpler, your wedding planner is your fairy godmother- all you have to do is tell her/him what it is that you want!
But I want to stay involved in planning the wedding
It is your wedding, of course, you need to get involved. So here is the thing, planning a wedding is like making a movie, which means you’re still the one sitting in the Director’s chair, while your planner fulfills all other possible roles in order to bring your artistic vision to life!
So, whether you want the decor to match your personal style or a menu that serves up some oomph, nothing will be finalized without your approval. And, even better, you can make the decisions while sitting at home because your planner will make sure that all the samples (wedding invites, menus, etc) are delivered to your doorstep.
By end-to-end you mean…
- Finding the perfect venue
- Choosing a caterer
- Décor and theme
- Referrals for designers and makeup artists
- Wedding photography and Videography
- Pre-Wedding Shoot
- Transport and hospitality for wedding guests
- Mehendi artists
- Choreographers for the sangeet and other functions
But won’t all of this be expensive?
It all depends on what you expect. At your first consultation, your wedding planner will ask you what services you’re looking to hire and your budget for the same. So, you can choose to only book a couple of services (maybe décor and photography), or go in for the complete package. Either way, once you’ve told your planner what you want, and how much you’re willing to shell out, they’ll make sure they fulfill your expectations within your budget, while only taking a small margin as their fee.
You should also keep in mind that since your wedding planner does this professionally, he/she will have tie-ups with many other professionals in the industry and will, therefore, be able to negotiate a much better price for you than you would have got if you’d approached them personally.
