I have recently been interviewed for an article in a wedding magazine and the first question was: “Why should a bride use a wedding planner?”
Maybe you are one of the many brides who have decided to get married in Marbella or somewhere else in the surrounding areas of Andalucia, and you are still wondering whether you should book a professional wedding planner. You may be working on your list of pros and cons, and still questioning about the real added value that a professional wedding planner can provide, and you may also be in the process of trying to convince yourself about the idea of just doing it yourself.
I am sharing my reply with you here, in the hope that it may help you make the right decision and you may actually enjoy this exciting, but time and energy consuming process, so that you can start your journey towards the altar in the trust that you are taking the right steps.
My Tip: Give yourself the chance to work through the process being guided and supported, and allowing your own ideas to get enriched and highly personalized, to achieve an extraordinary wedding, unique to you. Choose a wedding planner you trust and be demanding with her. If she happens to be me, get ready to feel pampered and set high expectations. My challenge will be exceeding them!
Happy Wedding Planning!
