You should spend the last few weeks before your wedding feeling relaxed and excited. But you will probably experience a certain amount of stress. And as your perfectly planned wedding day draws closer, this is the last thing you need.
When you set out on your wedding planning journey, the thought of hiring a professional ‘On The Day’ Wedding Planner may not have crossed your mind. Not everyone has the budget to hire a full service wedding planner to eradicate all of the stress throughout the entire wedding planning process. But there is a very happy medium between handing the entire project over to a professional and winging it all on your own.
ON THE DAY CO-ORDINATION IS AN AFFORDABLE SOLUTION
For an increasing number of couples, hiring an experienced Wedding Planner who delivers a first class On the Day Co-ordination service is the perfect compromise.
Besides being the perfect antidote to any unnecessary stress in the build up to the big day, it is also a very affordable service. One which arguably you cannot live without.
ON THE DAY CO-ORDINATION IS THE PERFECT ANTIDOTE TO WEDDING RELATED STRESS
My On The Day Co-ordination service enables you to relax in the run up to your perfect day and gives you the time and space to enjoy it. I will meet with you at your venue (ideally), no later than six weeks before your wedding, in order to understand your existing plans. I ask all the important questions in order to understand what really matters to you. I then take responsibility for contacting all your suppliers to ensure everyone involved understands precisely what is expected of them.
This is Chris. He’s a very busy man. He does logistics, among many other things;
PLANNING A MARQUEE WEDDING
Chris understands how to manage a project with multiple resources and is certainly not phased by a challenge. Having already planned and organised two marquee weddings at home, Chris imagined that overseeing the preparations for a third time on behalf of his daughter Miranda would be relatively straight forward. But as Miranda’s wedding day drew closer, he began to feel anxious. He was particularly worried about how he could ensure everything ran smoothly on the day, whilst still being able to enjoy every moment of it.
IS HIRING A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PLANNER REALLY WORTH THE INVESTMENT?
When the marquee supplier recommended that he considered hiring me to co-ordinate the wedding day, his initial impulse was to question;
“How EXACTLY does a professional Wedding Planner add value and are they really worth the investment?”
I was lucky enough to catch up with Chris (and Miranda’s Mum, Kay) following the wedding.
RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR PERFECT DAY
Here’s what they had to say…
“Hiring you was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY! You just don’t realise until the day finally comes around how much you need the extra help. There were so many people involved and so many things going on, distracting us. The day went by so quickly and we wouldn’t have had chance to enjoy it if we were organising everything ourselves.
The difference between not having a co-ordinator and having you on hand throughout Miranda’s wedding day Helen was HUGE. We were able to relax and enjoy the day so much more. I just smiled the whole day!”
THE EXTRA MILE
“The same can be said for Kay. As Mother of the Bride, during the build up to the wedding her mind was on making sure everyone was taken care of. Although transport arrangements had been made for the Bridal party, the fact that there were children involved, combined with very limited car parking at the Church, gave her genuine cause for concern. Until you suggested the perfect solution, offering to drive one of the Bridesmaids and her Daughter to the Church and quite literally going the extra mile.”
Coincidentally and rather unfortunately, it was the same Bridesmaid’s dress whose zip fastening malfunctioned during the critical, final moments of preparation. Nevertheless, everyone made it to the Church on time, fully dressed!
AN IMMACULATE WEDDING DAY PLAN
“There are so many things we could not possibly have foreseen and our biggest concern prior to the wedding was timing. Transferring 170 guests from a Church to a reception venue over 30 minutes apart and the consequences of not co-ordinating everything well enough could have been catastrophic. But we need not have worried. Your detailed wedding day plan was immaculate and the overall timeline ran to absolute perfection on the day.
Despite the number of suppliers involved, we didn’t feel the need to check ANYTHING. We didn’t worry about forgetting things either. Quite simply, we trusted you. We knew EVERYTHING would be taken care of.”
NOTHING BUT HAPPY MEMORIES
“All we wanted to do was enjoy our Daughter’s wedding day and thanks to Helen, we achieved that and have nothing but happy memories.
We are so glad we worked with Helen Davies and would recommend that anyone planning a marquee wedding does exactly the same. Don’t give it a second thought. Just speak to her!”
Chris and Kay Kirkwood (Miranda’s lovely Mum and Dad)
