5 Wedding Planners Dish Out The Biggest Mistakes Couples Make When Planning a Wedding!

BY Sakshi | 23 Aug, 2016 | 1069 views | 3 min read

A lot of us like planning our weddings by ourselves, but wedding planners seem heaven-sent for people who hardly have time or the patience to meticulously plan and organise a wedding. They are the ones who do all the running around, so you and your family members can relax and concentrate on only having a good time! In the run up to the wedding, wedding planners these days become more like friends, and sometimes, agony aunts! They listen to all your tantrums and dramas while trying to convert your vision into a reality- even if that means making some 10,000 calls to get exactly the kind of props and decor you want! So we decided to ask some wedding planners some advice which they would wanna give couples- but almost always are never able to give! Here goes! Negotiating Business

Saba from Atisuto says: "We never really believe it when families ask us to negotiate the cost asking us to consider that if executed well, we will surely get a lot of work from their family or circle of friends! We work hard on the wedding either way... if that gives us more work, then awesome!" ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Deals and Discounts

Khushboo from Two Fat Ladies★ 4.9 says, "A lot of couples don't know that they can cut sweet deals with hotels at the time of booking if they're booking a lot of rooms. So hire a planner before hand - so we can bring in deals - discounts at the salon for their guests, free wifi, free ironing of upto 4 clothes per room per day and sometimes even permission to empty the mini bar!" ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Creating a Dream

Abhinav from Abhinav Bhagat★ 5 says, " The couple should totally trust our instincts and skill set. We are as nervous as you are... sometimes planning a wedding or the décor can take 6 - 8 months! To be sure ourselves and then to convince the entire family (not only the couple) and to make sure the D-day looks as per what we have imagined! All this gives us as many pimples as the bride - so much tension, but we'll make your dream day come true!" ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Don't Sweat The Small Details

Nafisa & Akash from Purple Tree Events Solution★ 5 say, "Never compromise on the photography team. Go with your instincts not the budget. Also, work with a planner who you are comfortable with and understands your taste and requirements. This will help you (the bride) relax during the wedding and stress less over the smaller details! Don't forget to always grab a bite before leaving for the functions. Nine out of ten times the bride and groom never end up eating at the wedding function and end up with zero energy!" ____________________________________________________________________________________________ Less is More devika

Devika Narain from Devika Narain and Company★ 4.9 says, "I know you mean well, and want to do the very best for your guests, but sometimes too much can overwhelm and have the opposite reaction. Go easy on the menu (it is impossible to eat 45 dishes!), just one or two performers are sufficient, allow time to breathe between functions and leave opportunities for your families to bond," Who knew, right?
