Do you have to have a wedding planner or is it just easier
I didn’t have one I just wrote everything down on paper. Pretty much the same
You don't have to! Some venues come with a wedding coordinator. A planner is expensive and I guess only worth having if you don't have the time or inclination to plan your wedding. I haven't got one.
I didnt have one, I had a little book I kept everything written in. I colourcoded tabs in the book. Save yourself money I had fantastic friends who helped along the way with making things that I had crazy ideas for. A wedding planner would have taken our fun away.
You don't have to, it just makes it more expensive. You can do it yourself x
I didnt bother, I loved planning! Get yourself a book or an app and work through it bit by bit! Congrats and enjoy!!
I’ve not. I have spreadsheets to keep all information together and all the prices etc that we’ve paid and whats due xx
Think it’s more of an American thing. Never really heard anyone use a wedding planner plus think they tend to use their own ppl so you’re more limited with vendors x
i didnt want a planner, the excitement is about arranging it yourself and making sure everything went to plan, its more of an american thing and we involved both mums and gave them tasks to do.. also we were able to source good deals on things.
Only time I know people here in the UK have one is when your getting married at hotel, they have an on hand wedding planner so you go over everything with them and they sort all the details for you for the day. Anywhere else it costs you extra to pay out for one and isn’t worth it. Just buy a wedding planning book which has everything in it for you that you’ll need
Why get someone to organise your wedding? It's your special day, so put your own unique stamp on it.
I didn’t want a planner we wanted to do it ourselves so we could immerse ourselves in the whole experience xx
She could mean a wedding planning book also called a wedding planner? But if you mean someone to help plan/ organise/ help to book everything then you don't have to have one, easy enough to do yourself if you have a time line for the things/ people you want
Kind of! My MIL and MOH helped me with lists and I made a spreadsheet with everything on from venue to brain waves.!
I didn’t have one, I had an app on my phone. It was so much fun 🙂
I didnt have a wedding planner or a book or folder like lots of other people seemed to have, we wondered if we were missing something lol but no, our wedding turned out to be just as amazing as we had hoped. One of my good friends however had 2 wedding planners and everything they were involved in was a complete disaster, they didnt seem to have a clue on what they were doing 🤣 complete waste of money
Nope not having one here. t would not be fun ether as I like to be able to look touch smell stuff myself. if someone was to do that for me how would l know its right.
Its completely not necessary. A wedding app and s good old spreadsheet did me just fine!
I have a folder and an app - I like stationery so spent quite a while looking for one I liked but a notebook would work fine too. I haven't got a wedding planner as a person, I can't see that someone else can email people any better than I can.
The app Bridebook is great!
I have a spread sheet..far too much of a control freak to let anyone else take over anyway..
Wedding planning is so fun, just get some apps, magazines and a planner (I printed a free one) and you'll be fine 😁
I sort of had a wedding planner - my mum! 😂 She wasn't in a position to help financially but her physical help was far more useful to me than what she could have bought! And she helped us alot where needed, helped make lots of things, but the majority we planned and sorted ourselves.
We didn't have a wedding planner as such. We got married in a hotel, so the ceremony, wedding breakfast, and function was all in the same place, they had a co ordinator for weddings at the hotel, but we had a lot of personalisation and could plan the day as we wanted. If your budget allows I would highly recommend doing it all in one place as there is no wasted time traveling from venue to venue xx
I didn’t have one Caus I couldn’t afford it, doing it all again I would have made sure I had one. The stress is ridiculous
No planner... I'm a control-freak and a planoholic, so no way I was letting a stranger arrange our big day. That said it was pretty stressful; I lost 3kg in the fortnight leading up to the wedding just from stress. If you do decide to go it alone then OneNote is a very helpful tool.
I didn’t have one , just all my friends pitched in .....
I wouldn’t advise having one because they literally take over they don’t listen to u
We did practically everything ourselves and the only planner was at the wedding - prestwold hall - who looked after the food and knew the timings- but we told them what we wanted and had several meetings with them. X
