Bring on marriage equality!

marriage equalityI have to say that I am unimpressed with our elected government on the issue of marriage equality.  Not only are they planning to go ahead with a plebiscite, at great public expense, but now they’re doling out taxpayer funds for both “sides” of the issue to advertise their point of view.  All this will do, in my opinion, is open up an already marginalised section of society to hateful and intolerant advertisements all over media and the web.

As a wedding planner I see couples in love pledge to spend the rest of their lives together, in a ceremony that legally recognises their commitment.  A couple in love is a couple in love, no matter whether it’s a man and a woman, two women or two men, and it’s heartbreaking that same sex couples are denied this basic right.

I saw a post on Facebook just now that says it all, really, so come on, Australia, the time for marriage equality for all is long overdue!

Can you afford NOT to hire a wedding planner?

wedding planning

There seems to be a misleading idea out there that hiring a wedding planner is only for those spending a fortune on their wedding, but nothing could be further from the truth!  In fact, helping you to achieve your dream wedding on a budget is one of the most important things a good wedding planner can do for you, so you should really be asking yourself if you can afford NOT to hire one.

So why is it worth it to spend money on a wedding planner?  Here are just a few reasons

TIME – the average wedding takes over 250 hours to plan, and if you’re working and trying to have a social life, it can be very tough to find the time to cover all of the less glamorous and fun jobs, like chasing up vendors for quotes, managing a schedule, alphabetising name cards and staying on top of budget payments.  A wedding planner is there to take care of all of the mundane tasks, leaving you free to focus on the fun stuff like dress shopping, table styling and cake tasting.

VISION – you might have a zillion Pinterest posts saved showing the look and style you love, but sometimes it can take a professional to help you pull together the various threads to create the final result you want. Here at Juno Events we outsource styling, as we feel this is best left to the professionals, so whether you want a boho, rustic look or a sleek, modern feel, we know the perfect styling and hire company to bring your vision to life.

SAVE MONEY – Yes, you will pay for the services of your wedding planner, but trust me, any decent wedding planner will end up saving you heaps in the long run by helping you pick trustworthy vendors, avoid doubling up on costs and helping you negotiate your contracts and stick to your budget.  When you’re spending, on average, $35,000+ on something, it makes good financial sense to consult with a professional.

NO STRESS – planning a wedding can raise a lot of emotions, and not just on the part of the bride and groom. Overbearing future mother in law?  Bridesmaids who aren’t getting involved?  No worries – your planner can be the impartial adviser and buffer zone to help you negotiate these emotional pitfalls and support you fully throughout the process, including that often-tricky guest seating plan.

ENJOY YOUR DAY! You do not want to wake up on the morning of your wedding panicking about the reception set up, wondering if the DJ set up on time or standing in your driveway anxiously awaiting your photographer’s arrival.  Your wedding planner will have double and triple checked all of these details for you, and be on call for any last minute fires that need to be put out.  All you have to do is get ready, and then get married.

Make sure you also head on over and like our FACEBOOK PAGE to find out about an exciting competition we’re going to be running very soon where one luck Perth bridal couple will win a complete wedding management package worth over $1500.

Here are just a few more discussions about the benefits of hiring a professional wedding planner, enjoy reading, and then contact Juno Events to chat about how we can help you create your dream wedding.

Wedding planning is more than styling

wedding plannerWedding styling and decor is a big part of your event, you want to set the scene and get the look you want, but there is so much more involved in putting together a wedding.

Many vendors promote themselves as wedding stylists and planners, and I’m sure there are plenty who are good at both, but here at Juno Events we specialise in planning and management of all aspects of your wedding.  We have an extensive network of incredibly talented and innovative Perth wedding stylists we can call on to help create the look and feel you want, and I personally think it’s best to leave that side of things to genuine experts.

Being a wedding planner certainly involves being creative and aware of style, but it’s so much more than that.  It’s about managing schedules, timelines, budgets and overly keen future mothers-in-law.  It’s about contracts and guest lists, seating plans and rehearsals, music playlists and stationery.

It’s easy to get swoony about gorgeous Instagram photos of perfectly styled wedding tables, bouquets and more, I know I do!  That’s not really what a true wedding planner is about, though.  She (or he) is your PA, your sounding board, your go-to person, your budget controller, and your rock throughout the entire process.  Your wedding planner should be taking all of the mundane, non-fun tasks off your checklist so that you can focus on the fun stuff – like styling, picking your dress, tasting cake (OK, we usually want to come along for those sessions, I mean, who wouldn’t?) and so on.

Your wedding planner will be working on the day while you are sipping champagne and having your hair done, taking care of the multitude of behind-the-scenes jobs that need to be done – checking the venue, setting out place cards, making sure all vendors are on time and at the right place, right down to tiny details like adjusting the air conditioning, lighting candles, volume levels and more.  She (or he) will be on call, on site and on task ALL day to make sure you are not bothered by any potential tiny hiccups, and, if they’ve done their job properly, will have had all of these things finalised, confirmed and triple checked days and weeks in advance.

There really is so much more to it than styling, so let the stylist style, let the celebrant marry you, let the DJ play music and MC, and let your wedding planner manage it all.  With the average wedding costing well over $25,000, it’s money well spent to ensure that everything flows smoothly.
