Destination Wedding Planner – Three common queries I come across…
I haven’t budgeted for a destination wedding planner….
Let me know your budget and the most important elements of a wedding for you. Do you want high-end food, a venue with a WOW factor or perhaps live music and fun is more significant for you? I will then do a budget breakdown and factor in my fees as a wedding planner. I have built relationships with suppliers and can negotiate rates hence saving you money.
The venue already has an in-house coordinator and therefore I don’t need a planner…
In a nutshell, an in-house coordinator will send you a list of preferred suppliers whereas a wedding planner will be the main point of contact between yourself and the supplier. A wedding planner with deal with all queries on your behalf and any issues that may arise keeping the stress away from you.
The venue coordinator will provide a timeline based around the venue’s catering team. A wedding planner will build a timeline based on every single aspect of your day and ensure all your suppliers are aware of when and what they are doing. A wedding planner works in a lot more depth.
Read my blog about the differences between a wedding planner and a venue co-ordinator.
I have seen an amazing package online including everything that I need and it’s a great price…..
If you were to break down the all-inclusive package into individual elements and price each section, commission will have been added to each of these elements. With an all-inclusive package, you also don’t get as much flexibility and you cannot add your own personal style. For example, you will be allocated a standard DJ whereas with a bespoke package I would search for suppliers based on your requirements. You may not get options with the type of flowers as they are included in the package and set in stone. A bespoke package is built around exactly what you are looking for.
As your wedding planner, I will be here for you every step of the way and on the day itself.
Contact me to arrange a consultation and I will build a bespoke package personally for you.
