There are many things to prepare before your wedding day comes, and if you don’t want to be burdened by these preparations you can simply hire a wedding planner to do the preparations for you. Wedding planners have the right connections and they are very creative. They look at what they do as a passion and not a job.
If you hire a wedding planner, he will make you choose from three different packages that they offer. The package that the couple will choose will largely depend on their need and the budget that they have. The full service, partial service, and day planner service are the three packages offered by wedding planners.
The job of the wedding planner starts the moment they are hired and ends when the wedding celebration is done. He is like a family representative and he will make sure that communication lines are open to all concerned. He even acts as mediator should there be differences in views.
A wedding planner makes sure that the set budget is followed. He will look for a reception and ceremony venue and will book the photographers, videographers, florist, entertainers, and bridal car. He will negotiate with all of these to get the minimum cost and he will establish a timeline and ultimately sees to it that the timeline is followed. He also takes charge of rehearsals and the wedding day itself. He is also responsible for the jobs necessary after the wedding. All these services are included in a full service package.
The wedding couple is actively involved in wedding preparation in the partial service package and the wedding planner acts are a guide and assistant to the couple. In this package the decisions are made by the bride and groom, and the planner gives his professional opinion based on his knowledge of event planning.
A partial planner collects information about the bride and groom, meet all concerned parties and do budget evaluation. Price negotiations with the vendors are done by the wedding planner together with establishing the timeline. The wedding planner is expected to be at the catering meeting, rehearsals, the wedding and the reception.
The duties of a day planner is to see to it that the plans of the bride and groom run smoothly in according to expectation. He directs the vendor properly. The timeline is his most crucial task. He makes sure that the timing is correctly followed. His other responsibilities include organizing rehearsals, assigning staff to the bride and groom during the wedding, checking the vendors at the wedding and ensuring the timeline. Post wedding necessities are also his look out.
The final choice is with the bride and groom. If they have time and specific plans, then they just need the part time and day planner. The full service package is for couples who has no more time to make wedding preparations.
