If you think wedding planners are only a privilege the rich can afford, think again. Here's 9 reasons…
Reason #1. You deserve everything to be perfect on your big day.
It takes a lot of time and hard work to pull a wedding together perfectly. A wedding planner has organised a wedding a hundred times, and with practice comes perfection. They know the right people to talk to, how to get the best prices, what should (and shouldn’t) be in a contract, and how to ensure that every single detail is prepared for your big day
Reason #2. Your wedding planning experience should be enjoyable, not stressful.
Whether your engagement is long or short, you should enjoy every moment of that special time with your dream man. Most importantly, you do not want to turn into a neurotic Bridezilla who can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t work and is constantly stressing about how much work there is to be done. Since it’s our job, a wedding planner has time and the skills to deal with everything on your behalf. All you have to worry about is taking care of yourself and enjoying your engagement period
Reason #3. You don’t want to spend hours finding suppliers and trying to figure out who is trustworthy.
It’s daunting to know how many suppliers are out there (and how many people it takes to make a wedding a success). Knowing who to trust and who is right for you is one of the hardest tasks of planning a wedding. Once you find a great wedding planner however, the rest is much easier. They can recommend suppliers they’ve worked with before and know how to get the best prices, and the best results, from them. “Even if we have to use a new supplier, we know how to find the best one for your style and price.”
Reason #4. You don’t want to worry about forgetting to plan or pay for something.
Wedding checklists can be pages long, so it’s no surprise if you’re worried about forgetting something. Luckily a planner knows what needs to be done like the back of their hand! They will keep track of all your deadlines and remind you when things need to be done and decided on. Nothing will ever be missed, and there’s no danger that something won’t turn up on the day because of poor preparation.
Reason #5. You both work and you don’t want wedding planning to take over your life.
Planning a wedding takes a lot of time, even more if you do everything yourself. Having a wedding planner is like having a personal assistant whose sole responsibility is doing all the running around for your wedding.
Reason #6. You have a great venue coordinator but they don’t take care about any of the other details.
You’ve already found your venue and you get on really well with the venue co-ordinator (the person who takes care of all the logistics of the venue and often is provided as part of your wedding package). She’s great and has got everything under control, she’s even given you a recommended list of suppliers that they work with. But keep in mind, that’s generally as far as her services extend. A wedding planner goes beyond these tasks and can help you manage your budget, mediate disputes with your family, tell you what flowers are in season on your wedding date, take you to meet the other suppliers, research prices, and anything else you wish.
Reason #7. You need help making your vision a reality.
No matter whether you know exactly what you want, have a vague idea, or no idea at all, a wedding planner can help you define the look, style, mood and emotions you want to create. They know the latest trends and are inspired daily by other brides, suppliers and the industry. They can visualise what will work in your venue and know how to bring your desired mood to life.
Reason #8.You’re struggling to meet the demands of your friends and family.
Does your family have a different idea of how your wedding should look? Many brides have to deal with a plethora of conflicting opinions from their friends and family about how the wedding should unfold, and it can be hard to please everyone. Not to mention stressful. A wedding planner will deal with your family’s expectations, show you the available options and can be relied upon to give you expert advice so you make an informed decision.
Reason #9. You’re planning a wedding somewhere other than where you live.
Planning a destination wedding has it’s pros, but it’s hard to organise suppliers that you’ve never met or imagine a space you’ve never seen in person. A wedding planner with experience in organising abroad weddings has a trick or two up their sleeve for getting the job done the way you want.
“The truth is, planning a wedding takes a lot of time, energy and focus,” says Costigan. “Sure, some bits of it are fun and exciting, but then there’s the endless research, details to remember, payments to make and so on which aren’t so much fun but are very necessary. Using one of our wedding planners means you’re in control. It’s definitely your day, your way, but you have a specialist working on your behalf to do the legwork, reduce your stress and ensure every detail is your kind of perfect.”
We couldn't have done it without Jade. We decided to bring our wedding forward and we had 9 weeks to do it in. I had been referred by a friend who suggested we spoke to Jade regarding a particular question we had and we decided to book her pretty much straight away. Any question I had, she had an answer to, any time of the day which I especially didn't expect. She took my ideas and offered me a variety of options to choose from. Jade also introduced us to the best photographer on the island. Thank you for everything you did for us.
Lucy & Stu,
Married at Bellapais Abbey, May 2015
We had our wedding at the Korenium Golf Resort in July 2015, and it was absolutely perfect and went off without a hitch all thanks to Jade. As we are living in the UK, It was quite a daunting thought of planning a wedding abroad, but Jade was so helpful throughout the whole process. She sourced everything we needed for the wedding which took a lot of the stress away especially as we don't speak Turkish. When we visited Jade prior to the wedding, she went through everything in great detail with us and showed us around the venue which completely put our minds at ease. Not only did Jade do so much organising up to the point of the wedding, she was also present on the wedding day, making sure that everything look beautiful and ran smoothly.
We would like to thank you, Jade, so much for all your hard work and effort you put in to making our day so special ...we will never forget it! Rick and Clare xx
Wishing you all a merry merry christmas filled with love and joy xxxx

Those choosing to honeymoon in North Cyprus are in good company: it is said that Richard the Lionheart spent his at St. Hilarion Castle near Kyrenia. The distinctive triple turret layout gives St. Hilarion something of a fairytale feel and is reputed to have inspired Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
