Celebrating a wedding in Ibiza is the dream of many couples, being surrounded by the wonderful views of the Mediterranean, white sand beaches, magical sunsets, the best music and the most stylish parties are some of the reasons why Ibiza is a very popular destination for many couples. Unfortunately, organizing a wedding in Ibiza and even more if you are from abroad, can be a total challenge, so in this blog we are going to talk about your best ally - your Wedding Planner.
Getting married is a unique and special event in a couple's life. It's a day that has a very precious value in all cultures, that is why it must be given the importance it deserves.
Having a wedding planner is not simply hiring someone to have nice decoration. When you hire a wedding planner you are really hiring an expert who will advise you on all aspects
where you feel lost. Couples normally imagine the process of planning a wedding as a super romantic stage where you are going to sit on the sofa having a glass of wine to decide your style of decoration, music and invitations. Unfortunately the reality is not always so idyllic. Usually you finish tired from work and you just want to relax watching “series” or go out for a drink with your friends.
Well, believe us that the ideal situation would be that you could enjoy the entire process of planning your wedding with the assurance that you have a trusted person beside you who knows the industry perfectly and will be the person that will take care of everything. We assure you that this feeling of tranquility is priceless. Organizing a wedding requires training, a lot of knowledge of the industry and an exclusive dedication, and you will want everything to turn out perfect for your day and only a professional with years of experience can guarantee this result.
There are different types of couples with different preferences, styles and values, so there are several wedding styles and consequently, different types of wedding planners. Finding the perfect one for you will make everything run smoothly, so that you only have to take care of the most important thing: be happy and enjoy your wedding.
If you are one of those who still question the profitability of this investment, I invite you to continue reading and find out some of the most relevant reasons why you should hire the services of a wedding planner.
1. The first reason why you should have a wedding planner for your big celebration is that they help to solve problems. Planning a wedding is an ongoing problem-solving process. And it will not only help you solve problems, but also prevent them. Their comprehensive and honest advice will give you a pragmatic point of view that will guide you throughout the process so that nothing goes wrong.
2. When you imagine your wedding, you have in mind hundreds of ideas, sometimes unrelated ideas that you have seen on Pinterest, Instagram or at your friends' wedding... With so much information in the air, sometimes, it is not an easy task to know what we really want or sometimes it is difficult to know where to start building this amazing project. The first thing a wedding planner will do is to help you discover what you have in mind and give it shape: interpreting your vision with talent and coherence, providing creative ideas, giving harmony to all the details and creating a common thread that gives emotion and meaning to this wonderful experience. Letting yourself be advised by a professional will give you security and guarantee of success.
3. A wedding planner will recommend you and put you in contact with the most suitable suppliers according to your tastes, style and personality. You will not have to spend hours searching for the best suppliers on social networks and find the best deals according to your budget.
4. A wedding planner is someone with knowledge and experience in the industry, they are aware of the different wedding trends and they also know about “ protocols” therefore they can advise you on the best way to do things since there are times that your initial ideas are not entirely viable in practice, specially if you come from a different country or city and have to adapt your wedding to the climate, situation, and regulations of the venue you are getting married.
5. They will ensure that your guests have the best time and do not miss any detail of your big day. When a couple thinks of their wedding, one of the main priorities is that their guests have the best celebration ever and speak about your wedding day for years. Therefore, it is important to think about the possible needs of every guest, including the oldest and the little ones and make them live the day in a way as special as you will. All guests count and a good wedding planner will know how to make everyone feel unique and special.
6. With the current Covid-19 situation, we live in a time in which we are saturated with information, but you must be aware that there is a lot of fake news and you are going to find a lot of false information, which will end up confusing and stressing you. That is why with everything related to covid a wedding planner gets informed only in official sources and you will have the assurance that they will keep you up to date of all the changes and restrictions that may occur.
7. A wedding planner knows your suppliers and their contracts. This is a good time to review your contract and check that everything is in order, the wedding planners will recommend who are the providers with the most flexible contracts that will give you peace of mind in case you need to postpone your date. Think of all the possible scenarios and consult with your wedding planner, they will help you to give you the best possible solutions.
Your wedding is a memorable day that should be the true reflection of your love. It will be a day full of emotions and exalted feelings where you should not worry about anything at all. Hiring a Wedding Planner is synonymous with professionalism, unlimited creativity, dramas under control, affordable prices, optimization of your time, understanding and a stress-free wedding that you will remember for the rest of your life.
