If your considering hiring a planner, but aren’t sure what we do to help you, or if we are worth the expense this should give you an insight into what us planners actually do!

1. 

WE WILL BE YOUR PROFESSIONAL SET OF EYES 

REASSURANCE 

This means reassurance, someone to support you and make you feel like you have made the right decision, assure you that what you want will work and that your guests will love it! We are also a friend that understands exactly what you’re trying to achieve, can listen to your worries and pour you that glass of wine if you need one.

2. 

YOU CAN TRUST US TO TAKE CONTROL, BUT WE ENSURE YOU DONT LOSE IT 

COLLABORATION

Hiring a planner isn’t about them taking over and planning the wedding day they want for you, wedding planning is a team effort and a good planner will allow you as little or as much involvement as you wish, and the final decision making always lies with you.

 

Our luxury UK wedding planning service is as a collaboration between us and our clients, throughout we want you to feel supported, relaxed, and in control, we encourage you to embrace your individualities, whilst we take care of all the logistics, leaving you to Indulge in the possibilities.

3. 

WE ALLOW YOU TO BE PRESENT ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

RELAX

You should not be in white, double-checking your centrepieces, clock watching to make sure timings are being stuck to, or asking your venue manager to serve the toast. Your planner will give you the knowledge you can relax and allow you to enjoy each and every element of your once in a lifetime wedding just as your guests would.

 

Our experience means no problem phases us and there is nothing that cannot be discreetly solved. We will make sure your venues are set up to perfection in the morning, can look after all your guests, and easily operationally coordinate any small changes to the day whilst you sip champagne and soak in the atmosphere.

4. 

WE ARE EXPERTS

PROFESSIONAL

I always ask the question would you ever sew your own wedding dress? Planning a wedding is not easy, there are 100’s of elements to consider, and as this is one of the most important days of your life so far, you shouldn’t compromise on the day being exactly as you imagined, should you?

5. 

WE WILL NEVER STOP UNTIL YOUR WEDDING DAY IS EVERYTHING YOU IMAGINED AND MORE

LOYALTY

A planner is someone who will work tirelessly for you, with your best interests at heart, to ensure that every last detail is carefully considered and flawlessly executed. This is their business, their livelihood, and in most cases, their first love, so they are emotionally invested in making you happy. 

 

Loyalty is something that really runs through my core, and transfers into everything I do at In Awe Weddings and Events. It’s a great honour to be trusted to plan life’s greatest moments, and I take great pride in being loyal to you, and your vision.  

6. 

WE GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF TIME

ENJOY BEING ENGAGED

The average wedding takes 400-500 hours to plan, and this is when you have all the know-how, contacts, and resources at your fingertips. Life is busy, and if you’re already someone who is pushed for time a planner can be a priceless and enable you to enjoy being engaged!

7. 

WE SHOW YOU THE BEST

SAVE YOU MONEY

Ever heard the phrase it’s not what you know it’s who you know? Your wedding planner has a team of trusted, hard-working, skilful wedding industry suppliers and experts alongside them, and, because they work with them regularly, they usually obtain discounts, which for me, are always passed onto my clients! So not only do they introduce you to the best suppliers in your area they actually save you money as well!

8. 

WE WILL BE YOUR ADMIN QUEEN

PAPERWORK ANGELS

We know about admin, and we LOVE it! It’s one of the reasons why we love planning, all the checklists, your budget spreadsheet, contact and suppliers list, guest RSVP spreadsheet, research and coordination of all your suppliers (sometimes that’s up to 25 separate suppliers!), setting up all the meetings for us to visit them, then reviewing all their contracts, 1000’s of emails, creation of wedding timeline, set up and décor list, ensuring everything is paid on time…. we could go on!  

9. 

WE CHAMPION YOU

YOU'RE THE BEST

Your wedding planner is literally holding a banner behind you that says ‘you are the best’ throughout the whole planning process and for most, beyond, because you end up becoming great friends!

 

No one’s family is perfect (for me it’s split about 3 ways, but its mine and I still love them all, however juggling the dynamics at my own wedding will certainly be interesting!). Your planner is great at family mediation and managing heightened emotions with an objective outlook that ultimately has their couples’ best interests at heart.

 

I love that planning your celebration isn’t just about the logistics, but also about getting to know a new friend, and watching them walk down the aisle exactly how they wanted.

When choosing a planner, you should always make sure that they are the right fit for you, and that you feel you can trust them. I always love to meet couples face to face like a date really, you have to ‘get’ each other and feel a chemistry!

I would love to help you.
