Contrary to popular belief, a wedding planner is more than just another expense on your budget. Other than saving you the hassle of running up and down comparing vendor services, a wedding planner can also help you save quite a bit on your wedding budget. With experience working with different budgets, a wedding planner is the ideal partner to help you in this often harrowing process. Here are some few ways you can save by engaging the services of a wedding planner such as Wedding & Events by Kui:
You might imagine that all the information you require is out there and you can easily find what you need and put it all together. However, a wedding planner knows local market secrets you will not find on websites or magazines. They can advice on seasonal price changes in flowers, venues and other wedding expenses and help you adjust your dream wedding to fit into your actual budget.
A lot of wedding planners have hands on experience creating centerpieces, wedding invitations, party favors e.t.c. If you are on a tight budget, find a wedding planner who also offers a few of the services on your list such as décor, stationary or entertainment to get a good combined package at a reasonable price.
Re-using Décor Pieces
A wedding planner can help save money on décor by repurposing some pieces to be used in more than one way. For example, after the church ceremony, the planner can move the flowers to the reception venue. The bridesmaid bouquets can be used as centerpieces on the tables. If you were to plan your own wedding, it would be difficult to execute these changes as efficiently.
Bargain Vendor Prices
Your wedding planner has over time developed good working relationships with wedding service vendors. This means they can get discounted prices from the vendors and can also ensure you get value for your money on the actual day. They know when there are sales or offers by vendors and the right time to buy or book for bargain prices.
Among the duties of the wedding planner is to help you trim down your guest list by providing workable suggestions on the most important people to attend the wedding. You can discuss who gets to bring a guest, which day, time and venue works best for a leaner list or even how to word the wedding invitations to ensure that guests don’t bring kids or crashers.
All in all, a good wedding planner can help you find ways to reduce your wedding budget and have you skipping off to your honeymoon with money to spare. Having a smooth, hitch free day will end up being the icing on the cake.
