Frequently Asked Questions...
Why would I need a Wedding Planner?
A good planner will help you save time, money and stress. They talk through your ideas and advise using their experience to make your dream day a reality. They can also make sure you stay in budget and keep all your friends and family happy.
I dont live in the UK, can Annabel still help?
Simply, yes. We have helped clients far away from us with the power of Skype and emails. Clients as far away as Singapore and Austrailia have been assisted with their planning as many couples are coming to our wonderful part of the world to get married but dont know much about the area and its wedding suppliers. Get in touch to find out more.
I'm super organised so would a Planner be suitable for me?
Some couples find it hard to relax on their wedding day when they have had so much to do beforehand. A Planner will take the reins and handle all of your arrangements on your behalf so you can sit back and enjoy the special celebration.
I have a small budget so can I afford some help?
Any budget can afford help. Weddings by Annabel will work with you to arrange something suitable. It may be that you only need a small amount of help therefore the fee will reflect this. Get in touch as its worth checking.
The venue has a Coordinator so do I still need help?
We recommend that a venue coordinator should be free to look after anything related to the venue. Sometimes it works better if they are available to handle any issues or just to manage their important details such as catering, staff, toilets, etc. A Planner will take care of the Wedding party and guest queries while they concentrate on their roles. Also a Planner will get to know the clients in a personal way so they understand not only all the decisions made in planning but why. This way they can keep an eye on the specific points of interest or concern and answer queries on behalf of the couple.
Friends and family are eager to help so I wouldnt want to refuse their kind offers. Would a Planner not upset them?
Its wonderful when you have helpful friends and/or family that would like to be involved in your special day. This is definitely not something we would recommend leavsing out of your planning as they know you best after all! Sometimes unfortunately this kind of help can lead to problems or complications so having a Planner can mean you can have help or backup in managing the ‘team’. It also means those people can enjoy the event too! Everyone’s situation is different so get in touch if you have any family or friend queries.
My Mother is worried a Planner will take over. Is this likely?
A Planner should never take over. Weddings by Annabel only help you make decisions as we have the experience and knowledge to do so. We listen and advise to ensure you find what you need and a plan is created to best suit your ideal day.
How do I make sure I make the most of getting help?
Talk and gather ideas. The more we know about what you are envisaging, the better we can do in helping you make it a reality! When we get in touch, we normally issue a list of important questions anyway but if you dont have the answers, dont worry! We can help decipher what you would enjoy.
