Weddings are no joke. Although the Big Day itself is light and seamless, what most people don’t realize is how much effort really went into it. From the elaborate lighting design all the way down to the flavor of the cake, every detail was carefully thought out and implemented by the couple and their team of vendors.
To say that wedding planning isn’t stressful would be a lie – while it can certainly be a fun and exciting experience, most couples find themselves making big decisions and handling things outside of their comfort zone.
Enter a full-service planner. Booking a planner who takes care of all of those little details can take a load off your plate when it comes to researching vendors and coordinating between a number of different people. In addition to the simplicity, full-service planners tend to be well versed in all aspects of wedding planning so they’ll be primed and ready to take on any obstacles that may pop up.
“When planning your wedding, you don’t want to leave anything to chance,” assures Fabrice Orlando of Cocoon Events Management Group. “Booking a full-service planner provides you with one trusted individual to oversee the operations. Not only does this save you the headache of coordinating vendors, but your planner will already have the right contacts to create the best team for your Big Day.”
When the wedding day comes, you’ll be able to rely on your trusty planner to keep everyone and everything organized. Should an issue arise, you’ll be able to trust that they know what they’re doing and allow them to diffuse the situation – it’s as simple as that.
“You end up having less to worry about throughout the planning process and on the day itself, as the communication will be more direct and fluid between the design and the actual execution of the event,” explains Orlando. “Rather than having separate vendors for planning and design, a full-service planner will see your vision through from start to finish.”
In a world of minimalism and simplicity, going full-service has become a popular trend as today’s millennial couples prefer to communicate with one main point of contact rather than juggling a team of different vendors. Leave the dirty work up to your planner and enjoy your wedding (and planning process!) just like you should – it is, of course, the biggest moment of your life!
