Why Work With A Wedding Planner

Organising a wedding is a huge job – much bigger than most people imagine in those delirious moments right after they just said “Yes”. From booking venues through to choosing décor and ensuring that all the memories of theday are captured, there are lots of decisions to be made and hours upon hours of work involved.

Having a professional take on some of that responsibility will make your life much easier and ensure your wedding day is everything you dreamed of.

Stay in Control of Your Life

Between work and other commitments most people’s lives are busy enough without organising a weddingas well. Working with a professional wedding planner will take a lot of the responsibilities off your plate while they make appointments, research options, and deal with suppliers.

Stay On Time & On Budget

Your wedding planner will know how much things reallycost and will have a better chance of being able to negotiate the best possible prices with vendors. They will also make sure you stick to a timeline and that decisions are being made and jobs ticked offthe list.

They Already Know

Your wedding planner regularly deals with florists, boutiques, hairstylists, photographers, caterers, DJ’s, musicians, stationery suppliers etc. They already know who the best ones are without spending hours on Google or reading Facebook reviews.

They Understand the Fine Print

Plenty of weddings have been soured because something was overlooked in a contract and as a result, the couple was hit with an extra service fee or a supplier just didn’t turn up. Your professional planner will read and understand all the terms and conditions.

They’ve Got Ideas

You can spend hours trawling Pinterest and bridal magazines for ideas, or you can work with someone who does all that for a job plus has experience on their side.

They’re a Bit Like a Counsellor

There are few things more stressful than when it’s your day, but well-meaning relatives want to have their say - and probably disagree on a whole list of things. Weddings come with a whole host of tricky situations that have to be negotiated. Your wedding planner has been there done that and can give you some helpful advice. Sometimes they may even take the heat for you on a big decision.

Actually Enjoy Your Day

One of the most common regrets couples have after a wedding is that they didn’t just relax and enjoy the day rather than worrying about if everything is going to plan. On the day, your wedding planner will be one step ahead coordinating things and nipping unexpected issues in the bud, so you can enjoy the moment.

Where to Find a Qualified Wedding Planner in Bundaberg

Cassandra here at Elegant Events is Bundaberg’s leading qualified wedding planner. Give her a call today to arrange a time to discuss your perfect wedding.


We recently used Bundaberg Party Hire for the complete hire equipment & caterers at our wedding.  We found them to be extremely efficient, helpful & overly competent is all aspects of their service.  Firstly, the marquee & all other hire equipment was delivered & set up perfectly & exactly the way we wanted it, all crockery, cutlery & glassware was of high standard & perfectly clean – the best thing was that after the wedding it was all dismantled, removed & cleaned up to the point that  no one would have even known it had been there.

As for the catering, every one of our guests have commented on how fantastic the food was & how much variety there was.  The price of both the catering & hire equipment was well below any other quotes we had received although the standard was well above any other I have seen.

We would like to thank Bundaberg Party Hire for all their help and outstanding service, it made our wedding day perfect.
