Enquiring, booking and planning your dream eco-wedding with me really is easy – I promise! Here’s how it all works.
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.
Wondering how to incorporate a few more special moments to really nail those details of your wedding and ensure the good memories hold strong for years to come? Here are five ideas that cost you nothing and can really, truly add that little something special to your wedding day.
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!).
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.
Sorry balloons but you’ve really got to go.
We use them to make everything feel natural, to signify the outdoors and to bring a little of the outside, in – but how eco-friendly are your wedding florals really? Have you put any thought into where they came from, how you’ll be using them, or what will happen to them when your wedding is over? Considering the whole lifecycle really is the key!
As if all that food on offer and the huge amount of variety, themes, styles, different serving methods, cutlery options, crockery options… (the list goes on)… weren’t enough, now I’m hear telling you you should be considering how eco-friendly that catering is too?? I get it, it’s already complicated, but choosing a vendor that aligns with your values shouldn’t be difficult – here’s what you need to consider.
What are some of the common features in weddings that maybe aren’t so sustainable, and what can they be replaced with to ensure a similar (or better) experience, without harming the environment?
“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.
“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…
