What is Full-service Wedding Planning?

Planning a wedding can be a long and complexed process, so if you’re considering hiring help, then you may be wondering what is full-service wedding planning?


Some couples simply do not have time to plan their wedding alone. If you are considering hiring a wedding planner you may have researched and found a variety of planners and services. They may offer full-service wedding planning, on the day coordination, wedding design and styling or a partial planning option.


Full-service wedding planning can differ

The Wedding Planners’ services can differ, some will offer certain specialities - for example countryside barn weddings or weekend weddings and grand destination weddings. Some planners will be style-led planners whilst others may be more logistical.

Whilst I can’t detail what every Planner offers, I can explain more fully what my Full Wedding Planning service means.


Full wedding planning includes all elements of planning your wedding

From the first consultation I will get to know you, your likes and dislikes, your vision for the day. From here I will create a bespoke proposal that together we will fulfil.

I plan every element for you, which starts with creating your wedding budget. Whether you are planning a classic wedding at a listed mansion, a bespoke marquee wedding at your family home or a weekend of celebrations, I will then research and shortlist the best venue and suppliers to deliver a day that is truly what you have always dreamt of.

Its more than design

I will undertake all the researching, all the supplier proposals and shortlisting. I will go to venue visits with you, I will work on designs with you, I will be on the other end of the phone when you need me, giving you the benefit of my knowledge and experience. I will manage the budget throughout and I will even prompt you on payment deadlines. I will be the point of contact throughout for all suppliers, I will write all the emails and do all the scheduling. I will be there the whole day or weekend of celebrations to manage the set-up, to support you and to deliver the memorable celebration that I have promised.
