Wedding Planner or Not? That is the Question.

 

Happy New Year to one and all! All the festivities are over and the Christmas decorations are down, normal life can resume once again! It’s quite apt that we kick off the New Year on our wedding blog on the topic of wedding planning. I spend a lot of time on Facebook groups and soon, and a question that I see getting asked quite a lot is; “Is it really worth getting a wedding planner?”

 

On a personal note, we didn’t have a wedding planner, in hindsight, I wished we had to be honest. We didn’t realise how much we were both consumed by the whole planning and preparation of our own wedding until it was over, it was almost insidious. So today I have the pleasure of introducing a lovely lady we had the fortune to meet at The Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards, Haley of Forever and Always.

Q: Tell us a little bit about Forever and Always. How did it start and how long you’ve been going for?

A: Forever and Always was created after I fell in love with planning my own wedding nearly 6 years ago. After training as a wedding planner for nearly a year, Forever and Always was born and has been trading around 3 years now.

Q: What would you say is the biggest advantages of hiring a wedding planner?

A: The biggest advantage of the hiring a wedding planner is having someone there on hand to guide and support you through the planning of your big day! It’s nice to be able to lean on someone other than a friend or family member!

Q: Some Brides think that a having a Wedding Planner is expensive. Is this the case?

A: That really is not the case at all, and that is the first thing I always let couples know. I believe having a wedding planner should be very much built in to any wedding plan or budget. I tailor my services to each couple and happy to offer payment plans. Also in the long time I believe I can save my couples money as I work with recommended suppliers who often offer discounts and I can then pass this on to my couples.

Q: What can Brides expect when they come to Forever and Always to help with their plans?

 A: They can expect a personalised service, with attention to detail. Above all a professional service and someone that is caring and has that best interests at heart.

Q: What advice do you have for Brides for their planning journey &/or their wedding day?

A: The best advice a can offer any bride or couple when planning their wedding day is don’t stress enjoy every minute of the planning, it’s not meant to be a chore it’s meant to be fun. My number one tip I always say to my couples is once a decision has been made, tick it of the list and move on to the next thing! Don’t dwell on decisions that have already been made.

Q: What’s been your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related).

A: I have two biggest achievements to date one is my wonderful family I have, and I’m lucky to have such a supportive and caring husband and two gorgeous daughters.

My other achievement is winner “Wedding Planner” of the year 2017 for Bristol & Somerset. I was very proud and honoured I to collect this award back in February, this award shows the love and thanks from every couple I worked with last year.

Q: What does the future hold for Forever and Always?

A: I have a few things in the pipeline that I hope to be able to share soon, but my plan is to hopefully grow the business and continue to offer a top service to all my clients.

 

 

So if you’re still undecided whether to involve a wedding planner in your wedding preparations and wedding day, then, at the very least get in touch with Haley at Forever & Always. She won an award for a reason and we wish her all the very best at the 2018 Bristol & Somerset Wedding Awards!
