5 Reasons to Choose a Destination Wedding Planner
From the time your partner (or probably you) popped the question, you must have started envisaging a dreamy wedding. However, if you are planning to have your nuptials at a beach, atop a scenic mountain or any exotic destination, brace yourselves for double the fun, and simultaneously double the work too.
Now, if you are planning on hosting a destination wedding, there are a bevvy of things you need to arrange- accommodation, filtering and hiring vendors, wedding favours, catering, coordinating with the guests and lots more. A hassle-free way to tackle all this is to keep calm and of course, hire a wedding planner.
In case you still have your apprehensions, you can check out the following reasons as to why you should hire a wedding planner:
1. Local know-how
Your destination wedding planner will have deeper know-how about everything related to the locality- whether it is the vendors, the prices, and the quality of things. You don’t want to be wasting time in getting all these things when you already have so much on your plate. Moreover, when it comes to selecting the best caterer, DJ, makeup artist, florist, etc, they have a better understanding owing to their large network.
2. Cheaper Affair
Many a time a destination wedding turns out to be a cheaper affair as a destination wedding is restricted to a much shorter guest list. However, if you end up planning everything yourself you may lose a lot of money, considering that locals will tend to demand more money from you when they become aware that you have come from someplace else. Seek your planner’s advice when it comes to selecting suitable vendors and packages.
3. They know what works!
In case you plan to choose a venue to fit in 200 guests, where only a 100 can squeeze in, can you fathom the kind of disaster it would lead to? A wedding planner ensures that you all the right information is available to you, owing to the first-hand experience he has. From knowing which spot is best for clicking photographs to whether your guests will like the local food or not, everything will be under control with a planner.
4. Help your guests
Your wedding planner is a helpful source of information not only for you but also for your guests. There is a probability that many of your guests haven’t visited the destination ever before. Apart from helping you book suitable accommodation for your guests, a planner will also help your guests in traveling to and fro from the airport, take care of their luggage and make sure they can make the most of the destination in case they want to explore the spot or go shopping.
5. Your question bank
After all, planning a destination wedding is a stressful task. Sitting at your home and handling everything at a far off location is no mean feat. When you have someone to trust and someone who is arranging everything for you, just a call away, there is nothing better than that, is there? Moreover, you can bombard your vendor with a host of questions and he won’t mind.
I am sure I have put your apprehensions about hiring a planner for your destination wedding to rest!
