Blissfully Creative Moments
|Posted on July 16, 2020 at 6:50 PM|
This is the thought that runs through the minds of many couples. If this is, you! Pay attention, your psyche is trying to tell you what you already know the answer to. It’s often a challenge when you are planning your own wedding, knowing how to allocate money to each vendor/supplier, and where it could be best spent. We love the challenge that all new events bring, if we notice your hard-earnt wedding dollars are wasted on service, we’ll be the first to let you know, (this includes our own services). So, if any of the above scenarios echo with you, perhaps it’s time to call us.
You Have A Life Which Includes Work, Possibly Children and Accommodating Relatives from Out of Town
Life can become busy. Wedding planning and coordinating is a full-time job for us. We understand that it gets pretty crazy trying to juggle and stay focused on the details of your event when you have a dozen different vendors wanting your full attention. A busy life can create chaos when it comes to getting the smallest detail wrong when you are confirming your wedding vendors or suppliers, these have the potential to lead to the hideous nightmares on your big day. Delegating these jobs to wedding professionals like us is the greatest peace of mind money can buy. Having a knowledgeable person cross checking all booking you’ve made is priceless. Our wedding coordinators can also make suggestions about bookings you may not have so far considered or they can assist with ensuring a better experience with the one you have already booked.
If you have booked any kind of transport for your guests (this may be by Charter coach or Car Hire), we can be there on the day to help make sure the whole day runs as smoothly as possible. The drivers will have our contact details to the lead up to your wedding, and it’s nice to know that if a
guest goes missing or a driver gets lost – then they have someone to call on the day of the event. It should never be the Brides or Grooms, not even any member of your wedding entourage party…They should be fully focused on helping you both be calm.
Keeping Track of The Multiple Wedding Vendors/Suppliers You Have Hired
You started a relationship with Pinterest during the planning of your unique wedding, and the temptation of wanting to bring everything to life that you’ve seen has become all too real. Juggling multiple vendors/suppliers and understanding the dependencies of each one, as well as their own timings is an art form. Outsourcing this to a professional who can pull it all together is always a grand idea and worth its weight in gold.
Personalised Favours and Details
If you’ve made your own personalised favours or table placement/menus, that need set-up can create a great deal of pressure relying on family and friends to do this for you. After all, they want to be there with you enjoy the day just as much as you do, and why shouldn’t they. This is not something we’d ever recommend. If something happens on the day of your wedding, it may be hard to make peace with a family member or friend afterwards if they let you down, and frequently not worth the heartache that it occasionally causes.
Style and Location of Weddings
So, you both decided to have your wedding at home. Weddings at home are never easy for many reasons. Do you really want a group of wedding vendors/suppliers trudging through your home whilst you are trying to relax whilst getting your hair and makeup done or for the fella’s you don’t want to be stressed by numerous questions you just want to chill and remember the order of your ceremony. All this can be a bit overwhelming as usually on the day of the wedding you can’t always be around to see what’s going on and why would you want to deal with it. Weddings at home always benefit from one of our more substantial coordination packages involving site visits to your home in the months leading up so have a good grasp on the property and have a seamless take over on the wedding day. It’s always a better experience if questions from vendors/suppliers are fired across to us, so that you yourselves are not working on the day of the event.
Outdoor wedding, peace of mind is always assured by hiring one of our coordinators to be there and oversee the setup of your wedding. We will direct your vendors/suppliers to the precise location of the place where you’d like the ceremony to be setup. We’ll make sure your entertainment, musician and celebrant have arrived, and anyone you have booked for your decor. We’ll also take any of your own special items and put them in place for you. Just in case you were quiring, we can also supervise pack up – and pick up any of your own items or special effects left behind.
Blank canvas spaces make the best events. You can really make it your own if you’re starting from just a vacant place. By having someone there at the start of the day ensure all your deliveries arrive, , your catering team and kitchen equipment is there along with your lighting being set up at the start of the day is practical. Having the contact name and number of your wedding coordinator to give out to your vendors/suppliers is invaluable. You sure don’t want them to be calling you on the day if any problems arise or deliveries are late.
Your financial Investment to The Wedding Is Potentially One of You Biggest Outputs
The expense of a wedding coordinator is often insignificant in comparison to the thousands that many will spend on Florist/Photographer along with food and beverage alone. Couples can spend so much on their wedding day and have no one to act on their behalf ensuring that all their hard-earnt money that they have invested is really a reflection of everything they wanted the day to be. Only for it to seem so brief as they were not able to be present in the moment and enjoy every second and memory.

Some very lovely romantic and elegant dressing. Fabric gently rested softly on the body. Are the 80's puffed sleeves back, or should they be sent them back to that decade (what's your opinion?). This collection has your ceremony, reception and rehearsal dress sorted Lovelies
Truly worth the full watch. Music is perfectly chosen. Interesting formation of the runway. I love the variation in the models. I've watched quite a few show's this one is my favourite.

Saturday still remains the day that everyone wants to marry on, and because there are only 52 Saturdays in a year (and some of those are unfortunately in winter) it means that wedding bookings for that day are at a premium.
Having realised this, many couples are now considering the idea of marrying on one of the more plentiful weekdays. Weekday weddings can save you a considerable amount of $$$ on everything from your accommodation to catering, or even photography. Often the weekday prices can be up to two thirds cheaper than a Saturday price! If that does not turn you, here are some pros and cons for weekday weddings.
Cost – Most things are cheaper! In some cases you can expect to pay less for venues, vendors and photographers on weekdays. Hotels are quieter, could also have better rates and your photographer may not be as busy.
Availability – If you’re considering and or are prepared to marry on a weekday it’s possible you could have your dream venue, as well as a discount! As many popular locations are booked up sometimes years in advance, it may be wise to keep your options open.
Travel - Is cheaper on weekdays, and better rates as mentioned are available on hotels and airline tickets.
Babysitting – It will be easier to find a babysitter on a weekday rather than a weekend for those who have families, or those who just want to have a wedding without children.
Extras – Some vendors will be more likely to offer a discount or add in some extras if their services are used on weekdays. As hotels are quieter during the week, there’s a possibility of a discount. Any business is good business, right?
Extended Celebrations – A Friday wedding (for example) sees all the excitement and commotion over before the weekend has even begun, leaving you with extra time to celebrate your nuptials with family and friends.
Work Commitments – Between buying an outfit, travel expenses, accommodation, and a gift, guests can end up spending a small fortune to attend a wedding. It might not be a good idea to ask them to take a day off work too, especially if they have far to travel, and might need more than one day off. If a big wedding with all your friends is your dream, then a weekend is probably the way to go!
Traffic – In city locations, mid-week work and school traffic could cause a big problem for you. Imagine how stressful it could be showing up late to your own wedding because you were stuck in traffic. Imagine not have any pictures of the start of your ceremony because your photographer was late. This issue definitely needs to be thought about, unless of course you’re having a country wedding!

Planning a wedding comes with a whole new traditional of language, and words you thought you understood suddenly take on an totally new meaning. One of the major differences that a bride needs to work out is what, precisely, the difference is between a wedding coordinator a wedding designer, and a wedding planner. Below is a breakdown of what each different wedding expert organises! compiled from experts in the Wedding industry. Wedding Coordinator/Consultant What Does a Wedding Coordinator Do? A wedding coordinator is logistically focused, but on a shorter timeline than a planner. They usually begin helping you prepare a month before the wedding and function as the point person on the wedding day. They will confirm vendor contracts and create a day-of timeline, as well as make sure things like payments and guest counts are in order, but won't be involved in the earlier planning phases or keeping track of your budget. "Part of their job is to coordinate everything involved on the day of the event, from load-in and load-out to ensuring that everyone is on schedule," says Pedersen. Coordinators make sure everything you've done up until they take over is in good shape. "Hiring a coordinator to take over the month before your wedding gives them time to tweak any details and follow up on loose ends," says Andie Cuttiford of Wrap It Up, the coordination arm of Bliss Weddings & Events. Everything is in order, nothing is forgotten, and you're free to enjoy your wedding day! Wedding Coordinator Duties 1. Puts in at approximately 25 hours. 2. Meets with you four to eight weeks before the wedding to get a handle on what you've planned thus far. 3. Checks in with your vendors to review the signed contracts and confirm logistics. 4. Creates detailed timelines and floor plans. 5. Completes a final walk-through of the ceremony and reception sites. 6. Addresses any overlooked details (such as forgetting to hire a coat check attendant). 7. Manages the rehearsal. 8. Oversees everything on the wedding day. Hire a Wedding Coordinator If ... 1. You want to play an active role in planning your wedding but would like someone to take care of the last-minute details and make sure you haven't missed anything. 2. You're extremely organized and detail-oriented. 3. You don't have the budget for a full-service wedding planner. Wedding Designer/Stylist or can be know as Wedding Architect. What Does a Wedding Designer Do? A wedding designer's role is purely aesthetic, and doesn't include things like contract negotiations or attending appointments alongside the bride. "We specialize in design, consulting on everything from floor plans and lighting design to the flowers, furniture, linens, and attire," says Tracy Taylor Ward, President and Principal Designer of Tracy Taylor Ward Design. "We help with the decisions that will give your event a cohesive, stylish and sophisticated look." The ability to design an event and create an atmosphere is a unique and rare talent. "It's more than choosing linens and chairs," says Pedersen. "A designer has an artistic eye that allows them to conceptualize the whole event and truly transform a space." Wedding Designer Duties 1. Puts in up to 40 hours. 2. Creates the wedding's design concept. 3. Provides color palette guidance. 4. Oversees the decor budget and vendors (florist, rentals, lighting, stationer). 5. Sources special props and equipment. 6. Attends a site visit to visualize where you want everything to go, devise a layout, and identify potential problems. 7. Creates detailed floor plans. 8. Ensures all of the decor elements are in place on-site at the wedding. Hire a Wedding Designer If ... 1. The decor is the most important element of the wedding for you. 2. You're confident in your organizational and logistical skills, but your creative skills are lacking. 3. You're trying to pull off a very specific theme or you have a million wedding style ideas that you can't narrow down. Wedding Planner What Does a Wedding Planner Do? Wedding planners are all about the logistics, from vendor referrals and contract negotiation to day-of execution of your vision. "Planners take the guesswork out of the process, making planning a wedding as seamless and smooth as possible," says Renny Pedersen, owner and creative director of Bliss Weddings & Events. "A planner will keep track of your budget and handle the logistics. This is a skill that many can learn, but only the best planners have the years of experience and credentials that sets them above the rest." Some planners also provide design or styling services, helping with the creative specifics of your wedding day, while others opt to leave those details to a wedding designer ??? which means you'll need to hire two professionals to create the day you've dreamed of. Be sure to discuss whether your planner offers design services, or else read on... Wedding Planner Duties 1. Puts in 80 to 250 hours. 2. Provides vendor referrals and negotiates contracts; schedules and attends all vendor meetings. 3. Creates detailed timelines and floor plans. 4. Helps determine and manage your budget. 5.
