Introducing the Essential Guide to Hiring a Destination Wedding Planner

When choosing a wedding planner

You need to understand ...

  • That there are different types of wedding planners and it’s not always obvious what the differences are.
  • Wedding planners offer many different types of services and it’s not always obvious how their offerings differ.

And you need to know ...

  • The type of wedding planner that will best suit you.
  • What type of planning help you want and why.

If you’re planning on using a wedding planner to help plan your wedding abroad …(great choice BTW- we’re personally all in favour of using a wedding planner) …it’s absolutely critical that you select the RIGHT planner for YOU!

Bride “M.” who recently had her wedding abroad chose a wedding planner that gets excellent reviews. Many couples love this planner!

HOWEVER for M this was the WRONG wedding planner for her.

M didn’t realise that the type and level of service wedding planners provide could be significantly different. A key factor in her selection process was the budget that was provided to them. Compared to other wedding planners it was more reasonable but what she didn’t realise at the time was they were only given a basic list of services and the costs kept going up if they wanted anything above this.

Unfortunately M’s choice of wedding planner negatively impacted her wedding day and in hindsight she realised that she didn’t know how to choose a wedding planner.

We don’t want any other couple to feel the same disappointment by realising they have chosen the wrong type of wedding planner.

Not all wedding planners are created equal!

Not all wedding planners ...

  • Provide the same type of service (even if their websites say they do)!

Not all wedding planners ...

  • Provide the same level of service (even though we’d like to think they would)!

Not all couples ...

  • Want the same type of wedding planner.
  • Need the same level of service.
