Wedding Planners - Are they necessary?
Well it depends.
Tip # 1: If you are working abroad and having your wedding reception elsewhere or;
If you have tight schedule or;
If you are looking at 60+ tables on your wedding reception.
Chances are, you'll need one.
(Of course, there are a lot more reasons click here to read more)
Yes, you can survive without one but you do need to bear with the stress of doing a DIY wedding esp when the date draws closer.
For me, I know from the beginning, I'll certainly be hiring one cause:
a) I got a house reno, a ROM and wedding dinner to prepare
and I only have a pair of hands.
b) I heard a lot of stories about how relatives likes to add unnecessary stress to the couple by telling them what to do - meh~~~~Thank you Aunties, but I'd rather have someone professional to provide these advice.
c) Most importantly, I know my dad very gan cheong about my wedding. So my Wedding Planner is the perfect person to calm him down and assure him that things will be fine.
LOL! Smart leh~? Of course mah, must have strategies wan hahahahah!

Tip #3: I can't emphasize enough that though the quotation (Rm 2500 - 5000) does play a part in deciding which Wedding Planner to hire, I think it's more important to see how your wedding planner can work closely with you to plan your wedding.
Another good advice leh~ Hehe I think so too.
