The benefits of hiring a Wedding Planner
One of the HUGE bonuses of a Tipi wedding, is that you can create your wedding exactly how you want it and unlike many hotels or more formal wedding venues, you’re not tied in to certain caterers, bars (with extortionately priced drinks!) and other set suppliers. That said, it can end up meaning you, the bride (and perhaps your groom if you’ve let him be involved 😉 ) have organised and co-ordinated a lot of the suppliers and extra details yourselves, meaning you’re the only ones who have the knowledge of what needs to be done on the day and in the lead up to your wedding. After my Tipi wedding in 2015, one of my only regrets was not having someone there on the day to help co-ordinate proceedings.
Hiring a wedding planner or an on-the-day co-ordinator can take away some of the stresses and can allow you to hand over and delegate as much or as little to them so that you can create some space in your brain and just sit back, relax and enjoy one of the best days of your life.
We met up with Nicky Austin of Nicola Austin Weddings & Events to chat through the benefits of having a wedding planner and an on the day co-ordinator and to bust some myths you may be concerned about:
6. It doesn’t have to be from the start
For a lot of couples, they’re quite happy to shop around for suppliers and get things booked up but the further along in the planning process you get and as your big day gets closer, stresses start to increase along with your to-do list! Just because you’ve not had a planner from the start doesn’t mean it’s too late to get one involved. Partial planning from 6-8 weeks before your big day or just having an on the day co-ordinator can be a HUGE help.
7. On the day co-ordinators can be especially useful for an outdoor wedding
As I mentioned above, there are a lot of things to co-ordinate with an outdoor, Tipi wedding so having someone there on the day means you have nothing else to worry about other than enjoying your big day. It also means you don’t have to allocate jobs to your family or friends so they can also sit back and relax. Your suppliers will also have a main point of contact for the day so they won’t be bothering you! This is also extremely helpful in case there are any hiccups! An on the day co-ordinator is there to be your eyes and ears so yours are free for everything else 🙂
8. Nicky herself has firsthand experience working in the Tipi industry so she can offer specific, Tipi-related advice
This is a huge bonus so definitely something to consider when choosing a wedding planner / co-ordinator. Tipi / outdoor weddings do differ quite a lot from that of indoor venues so it’s worth asking any prospective planners how much experience they have with an outdoor wedding.
Nicky has several different services to offer:
Full wedding planning
Partial wedding planning
On the day services
Perfect Venue Service
