Your wedding is ultimately one of the most important events in your life. This is why some people seek out the help of a wedding planner. This enables them to relax and focus on what matters the most on the day, without the added stresses of table seating, floral arrangements, setups, catering and more.
Whilst costs may vary it is important to outline a clear list of duties and a budget in advance before you begin. The reason for doing this is so that you can find the best wedding planner to suit your needs. It also helps you to avoid any unexpected costs if the planner is aware of your requirements and therefore can advise you accordingly.
Wedding planners costs are not only dependent on their experience and expertise. For example, their pricing structures may be based on the level of support and ultimately the services that you require:
- Full wedding planning
- Partial wedding planning
- Wedding day management (On the day wedding coordination)
Costs can also be based on a percentage of your overall budget, often ranging between 10%-15% as an industry average.
Full Wedding Planning
As you can imagine full wedding planning planners, provide you with their help, support and expertise from the very beginning. This hands-off approach helps you to relax as they take charge of your big day making sure that everything (even down to the budgeting) is taken care of.
Partial Wedding Planning
This means that you may decide to give some responsibilities to your planner to plan but keep others for you to take care of. For example, you might want them to take care of sourcing the venue and design styling but you source your own cake maker and reception entertainment.
Wedding Day Management
Some couples prefer to plan their big day all by themselves, and you may wish to do the same, as you know exactly how you want your big day to look! With the internet and social media it is very easy to find a range of suppliers for your special day. Therefore, you will find that wedding day management is the perfect option for you.
Wedding Angels’ wedding day management costs start from £1,600 which is a fraction of the price compared with full wedding planning services which can start from £5,000 upwards.
The benefits of wedding day management means that you get to take part in the fun things such as sourcing the right suppliers, picking out decorations, finding favours plus more with friends and family! It can be a wonderful way to bond and create fun activities with your nearest and dearest.
Whilst still having a dedicated person that will liaise in the run-up to your wedding with the suppliers you have selected and then be present on the day to make sure that everything goes smoothly and according to your wishes!
