Organizing YOUR day
The role of a wedding planner is relatively new in Spain and although the truth is that we have many good professionals in the sector, not all of them meet the needs of all the couples who are about the enter the biggest day of their lives.
First of all, let’s define what exactly a wedding planner is and how important their role is in the organization of what will be one of the most beautiful and meaningful days they will ever have.
A Wedding Planner is someone who advises and helps you with the design, organisation, and planning of your wedding, respecting your style and the needs of each couple. She is also someone to whom you can delegate all aspects of your wedding.
The main task of a Wedding Planner is to know how to listen, understand what wedding you want, and guide you along to make it happen. Therefore even if you have many different ideas or want something that is not easy, the job of a Wedding Planner is to “unravel” that information and make a custom wedding work for you from the beginning.
So as we have mentioned above, GiDo Weddings gives us some tips today on how to start organizing this important day.
Start by making a provisional list of your wedding guests and “think about when, where and how you would like to celebrate the wedding”, recommends GiDo. That is, choose a possible date or tentative dates; whether it will be a morning or afternoon wedding; where you would like to celebrate it (in a country estate, an urban wedding in a hotel, in the family village, a destination wedding somewhere special, etc.); and whether it will be a black-tie wedding or a more informal one. All the details you want to write down will serve to give you an outline of your wedding.
If, for example, “you want to celebrate the wedding less than nine months away, you will have to get down to work to find the space or property available for the day you want”, which is undoubtedly the most complicated piece of the puzzle to fit in, especially if you are thinking of a summer wedding and with so little time to organize it. In this case, being flexible in terms of date and venue will be fundamental. However, if the idea is to get married next year, “you can take your time when looking for a venue and date”, bearing in mind that the summer dates are the most popular.
But it is not only the place where you will celebrate the wedding party that is important to book but also the church (remember that there are parishes in high demand, some even with a waiting list) and/or town hall (if the ceremony will not be on the same property) where you want to get married. It is best to start the paperwork as soon as possible, as the bureaucracy is not always the same as ours.
How do you imagine your wedding?
Maybe an intimate wedding in bohemian style is in your mind or industrial or vintage style… A beach wedding at sunset, Ibiza style or more of a tropical atmosphere. Maybe a classic wedding with lots of guests under a beautiful tent or a hipster outdoor wedding, or break all protocol by having a picnic wedding. I’m sure this is something you’ve talked about before, but it’s now time to finally compile all those ideas you have for your wedding.
Defining the style of the wedding you would like to have,” says GiDo Weddings, “is a very important exercise, as it will not only help to define the decoration but also the most suitable venue, taking into account the options it offers in terms of seating capacity, aesthetics, outdoor spaces, halls and other areas for the celebration, type of catering and so on”.
The most important and complicated aspects of a wedding have already been decided: date, venue and guest list (let’s not forget about them, who came in the first step and knowing how many guests you will have will help you to define the capacity, space, and budget, for example).
Now it’s time to start looking for all the suppliers that will help you shape the wedding so that you have the most beautiful memories of your big day. There is no order of preference here, although many brides have already prioritized the search for their dress. Even so, GiDo Weddings recommends continuing with the choice of the wedding photographer and videographer who are usually the most sought-after professionals and who, due to the way they work on an exclusive basis, have the most limited available dates.
