Do I need a destination wedding planner for my wedding abroad?
Do I need a destination wedding planner if I get married abroad? Surely this question has come to your mind many times and you are not the only one who asks this question. That’s why I want to help you to clarify it.
First of all, I want you to know something: Hiring a wedding planner is not a luxury as many people think. It is an investment that will save your time, stress and help you run your wedding day seamlessly.
Whether you like it or not, planning a wedding is truly a daunting affair. From countless wedding-related ordeals to making time from your busy schedule, life’s not a bed of roses. Let’s not forget all those social commitments up your sleeve.
Nevertheless, destination wedding planners truly make it a point to give your moment that sparkling touch. As a wedding planner, I will make it a point to schedule appointments, deal with hassles, and embark on solving vendor-related problems.
Did you know that organizing your wedding can take an average of 250hrs? Your Eco-conscious destination wedding can take even more as requires deeper investigation. Researching and finding the best suppliers takes time and the foreign language may cause difficulties also.
So if you are a busy couple with minimal spare time, or you simply don’t have the organizational skills or patience, then hiring a destination wedding planner is definitely worth considering.
How I can help
Save you time and stress
Simplify for you and make the preparation process more bearable. I will take care of your venue booking, catering, vendor hiring, helping you with the guest’s list, etc. Dealing with all of these is not just time-consuming but it can be very stressful.
Save your money:
Many people think, hiring a wedding planner will up the overall cost of their wedding. Might be you are one of them, if so, stop for a second! Let me tell you that it is the other way around! You get the most value for your money. I help you keep on track with your budget and will help you to not spend money on things you don’t need and don’t leave money for what would be important.
Bring your vision to life
For me bringing your wedding vision to life is one of the most important things. This is what you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl and I want to make it happen! I will make sure that all the vendors are on track, so your dream wedding will come true by making sure that every element of your day actually happens!
With the Logistic
Maybe you think that once you have your wedding vendor team in place and the venue booked, you can take a breath. Well, setting up your wedding logistics is just as important as your vendor list. It is a crucial part of wedding planning to make your day run smoothly and seamlessly.
What does it include?
- Wedding day timeline: You need to know how much time you need for each part of your wedding (photo, ceremony, dinner, etc)
At this point I would give you a pro tip:
When you put together your schedule, it is very important to give yourself more time than you need for each time on your timeline. This will help you avoid unnecessary stress, for instance, if your hair and make-up take longer.
- Organize the transport from ceremony to reception if they are not at the same place. Also, organize the shuttle service for your guests
- Create your layout and floorplan
- Make sure every vendor arrives in time and knows what, when, and how to do it. Well, at this point I highly recommend having your bridal assistant to help with this or a wedding planner who offers wedding day coordination or partial wedding planning service if you don’t want a full wedding planning service.
- Solve last-minute problems. On the wedding day always can arise last-minute problems that YOU need to solve if you don’t have a wedding planner. Do you think you will have time for this? And most importantly, do you think you need this unnecessary stress on your wedding day?
Well, that’s why I am here, give you peace of mind and take care of all of these. I ask only one favor from you: ENJOY every moment of your day!
Getting the right message across to vendors- bid farewell to problems
Sealing the deal with your vendors isn’t something that too many people are good at. And for that reason, you need to fulfill plenty of paperwork as well as contracts. Luckily, small fundamental details like these are every wedding planner’s forte.
As a couple in a foreign land, you probably want to soak it all in. And that means ridding stress away for days. Be free to speak your thoughts out. I am here for a reason and that includes making your life easier.
Apart from all the above mentioned, I help you deal with the language barrier as here in Spain there are a lot of vendors who don’t speak English. As a bilingual destination wedding planner, for me it is part of my job to deal with Spanish speaker suppliers and realize zoom calls between us, helping you with translation.
Also, I have location experience. I know exactly which location will match the best with your vision.
I work with the best venues that can be the perfect fit for your elegant, eco-friendly wedding. One of those is a beautiful villa with rustic charm surrounded by nature. We organized our Elegant, Eco-bohemian styled shoot here and it also has been featured on the Green Union blog.
I gathered my recommended wedding venue list carefully, bearing in mind the most important aspects of them and bearing in mind all your needs that can arise to have a beautiful, outdoor wedding in Southern Spain.
As a destination wedding planner who specializes in Elegant, Eco-friendly weddings I will help you create not only a unique wedding that reflects your values. But a wedding where protect our environment plays an important role as well.
Today, destination weddings are a true calling. And what better news than ‘saying I do’ to the land of the Spanish? Yes, if getting married in Spain is on the cards, there’s simply nothing better. But with a lot of fun and excitement in store, the entire planning process is a little daunting, to say the least. Organizing a wedding can be very stressful and could consume your life for over a year!
We will ease the whole wedding process, working with trusted and like-minded suppliers. Make sure to bring your vision to life and give you and your family a unique experience.
Hiring a wedding planner is an investment to save your time, stress, take the pressure away, and on your day give you peace of mind because the only thing you will have to do is Enjoy the whole wedding planning process and YOUR DAY!
