Wedding Planning Services

There are so many different ways that I help couple to get their wedding happening, in fact – the role of wedding planner can vary so much it’s a little hard to explain (concisely) exactly what it is that I do… it’s no wonder people get a little overwhelmed when trying to decide if a planner is worth their investment.

But seriously though… why ARE weddings so darned expensive??

It’s no secret weddings can be expensive…

And we’ve all heard the little myth about “wedding tax” and how wedding vendors just charge you more because they can… Goodness knows it can feel that way at times… And most likely, even if you don’t believe it, you’ve probably entertained the idea at least briefly.

So here I am, small business owner and wedding planner, letting you know that that’s absolutely not the case (promise!).

Designing an Eco-Friendly Wedding

The concept of being eco-friendly can be a little daunting. It means so many different things to so many different people and attempting to encapsulate all that “eco-friendly” is, is no easy feat. Throw in that wedding word and you’ve got a recipe for a whole lot of overwhelm, anxiety and the dreaded eco-guilt. Let’s be honest, wedding’s can be a lot to comprehend without adding your concern for the environment into the mix as well.

What’s the Difference Between a Wedding Planner and a Venue Coordinator?

“Our venue offers a planner as part of their package, why would we need a private planner as well?” It’s pretty common for venues to offer this service (and there’s good reason for that too!) but don’t get confused between a venue planner or coordinator and a privately hired wedding planner. The two roles are actually quite different (and super complimentary!). In this post, I’ll be talking about how the roles differ and why I’d highly recommend you embrace having both professionals working alongside you on your wedding.

How to Make Your Wedding Unique

“Unique” is a word that gets thrown around an awful lot in the wedding industry. Everyone wants their wedding to be unique. To stand out. To be unlike all of the others. It’s a pretty big ask in an industry so strongly influenced by current trends, styles and fashion…

There are already so many things to consider when it comes to choosing your wedding venue, throw in that eco-friendly word and things can get seriously overwhelming.

Who do I need to hire to create my dream wedding?

There are so many different roles when it comes to wedding professionals, and as a newly engaged couple – chances are you’ve never heard of them before, let alone know enough to decide which professionals you’ll need to hire to help you prep for your wedding day. Never fear! In this blog post I’ll be giving a bit of a run down on wedding planners, stylists and coordinators; what they do, how they differ, and when you might want to consider hiring them.

How to Choose Eco-Friendly Wedding Attire

It’s the suits, the shoes, the jewellery, the head piece, the ties, the coats you’ll wear later. It’s your day after outfit, or the clothes you’ll wear to the rehearsal. It’s the outfits you’re gifting your wedding crew and the suspenders you’ve had made for your dad. There are so many beautiful and meaningful aspects to your wedding attire. It makes sense that they align with your values so you can wear them and gift them totally guilt free.

On Inviting Children (and Plus One’s)

The first choice is quite possibly the simplest – will you invite any at all? The second choice a little harder – if only some, then which? The third – how to communicate clearly who’s invited, is more of a logistics kind of question, and the fourth – how to gently let down those who are not is definitely the least fun of the bunch.
