A wedding consultant can turn your wedding dreams into reality, especially if you have a busy office schedule and are really tied down by your full-time job. Although often termed as an ‘expensive frivolity,’ a wedding consultant can help you arrange your marriage as you want it to be.
In brief, a wedding consultant is a person who you hire to see to all the small and big details of your marriage events from the beginning to the end. A wedding consultant works in tandem with a wedding planner. All this does not mean that you will have to tow the line to whatever your consultant decides for you. No, of course not! You remain the boss and it is you who decides the colors, styles and events as you visualize them to be. The consultant will advise you on the feasibility and practicality of all your plans.
How Does A Wedding Consultant Help?
Popular consultants generally enjoy a good rapport with the vendors and suppliers. They know their job well. So, they get you the best services, though at a fee. As a marriage is a time that needs strenuous planning and preparations, a consultant is the best person to seek advice from on food, invitations, gifts, flowers and the best boutiques for clothes.
Consultants also make it their job to know the best locations and wedding venues for the bridal day and the reception. They ensure that your choice matches your budget. Good consultants will not let you worry about forgotten invitations, appointments, food orders, etc. They will remind you of these matters and most of the time, handle such jobs themselves. A consultant will also give you prudent advice on getting wedding insurance cover and arrange the same for you.
Not Hiring A Consultant
Imagine the scenario if you don’t have a wedding consultant. This is what will probably happen then:
- You might get sleepless nights due to the worry over the myriad unattended details of the marriage, slowly driving you crazy.
- You might be unable to coordinate your guests at the venue.
- You might miss out on some special plans and mess up your events.
It would be great if you feel that you will be able to do without a consultant, but believe me, they do take away a lot of the stress that comes from the time-consuming preparations of marriage.
Overall a wedding consultant keeps your budget in check, draws up practical checklists, directs you to the recommended vendors, advises you on any potential pitfalls and last but not the least, organizes your honeymoon.
A wedding consultant can prove to be indispensable for your wedding.
