A question I would like to raise is, “Is there really a need to get the services of a professional wedding coordinator?” The answer is it depends whether you want it regardless of the budget.
The only positive side that I see in a wedding planner is that they serve to take care of the creative side of the wedding ceremony and reception. They serve as a temporary alter ego though not on the personal note, to remove the tension on the part of the couple towards their altar date.
Though you may not be an expert and a professional in the creative side of things, I believe everyone is gifted so the best judgment will be one’s personal intuition and artistry. It may just appear too simplistic or unattractive to one’s guest and visitor, what matters is that it has a personal touch to it. The ceremony must suit your personality and so the details one has listed can be followed in accordance to your requirements.
So what does one do at this point? Since planning a wedding should be scheduled months ahead with enough time at your hands, do some research. Surf the internet and look or browse into several books. These could assist and give some information and ideas regarding a wedding activity.
Being your own planner, couples can save a lot on the budget. One need not worry about paying a professional fee. Also, you can determine some alternatives in the event some things come up to be costly to affect your budget.
The following are some useful tips to organize and plan which can be adapted and amended to suit your needs.
Label every folder with the following details;
- Budget – keep a budget sheet with assumed prices vs. actual prices and who shall take care of the payment

In our busy life today even women do not have an ample time to plan for her wedding unless you take the planning for a year or so. Most of the soon-to-be brides are working girls as most women are now career oriented.
That is the reason why most businessmen find holding a wedding package very profitable in the Philippines because it serves as a one stop shop for the bride and groom. It is easier for the bride and the groom in planning for the wedding because all they have to do is to meet up with the wedding coordinator for few hours at least once a month for other details that needs confirmation from the soon to be couple.
Most wedding package comes with a wedding planner. It is one of the pros of getting a wedding package. You can have the wedding ideas that you want and someone will make the negotiations for you. You just need to tell your ideas, select your choices, and wait for everything to materialize.
There are wedding packages that comes as is. If you would like to add or eliminate something from the package, the price may change. A complete wedding package starting from the pre-nuptial photo shoot, invitation, wedding rings, choice of the wedding venue, gown and barong of the whole entourage, flowers, sound system for the reception, photography and videography catering services, wedding cake, bridal car, souvenirs, honeymoon venue may cost from 50,000 pesos to 200,000 pesos, depending on the number of guests and the materials that will be used for the wedding.
The downside of getting your wedding in a package is that you won’t have a chance to get the supplies at the lesser cost. Some wedding packages will not even allow you to change the set of package so another disadvantage is you sometimes won’t be able to achieve the ideas you have.
Whatever you choose on how you want the preparation, it is important that you do not go beyond the budget but still have that nice wedding you have been dreaming without any hassle.

What makes our Filipino wedding unique is our colorful and lively culture, be it influenced by the Spanish and American norm. Here emanates, the history of our wedding ceremony and reception.
With families and friends, a celebration on the day of wedding is a much awaited event being looked forward to. Nowadays, young couples, professionals with the financially capacity have risen up the bar in going about in the preparation and arrangement of their wedding.
Not too long ago parents of both the bride and the groom are responsible in the preparations and arrangements of the wedding ceremony in accordance to beliefs, customs and traditions of the region and province.
A majority are now availing the services of a wedding coordinator, a professional enterprise unheard of before. It is now a breeze going through the maze of the wedding details with professional supervision, a comfort to young couples that cannot squeeze in time into their tight schedules while working.
The skills in managing, preparing and arranging the ceremony by these enterprising coordinators come to fore to come up with a wedding ceremony and reception the couple desires and dreams about.
Nowadays, young couples are venturing in to the idea of originality, simplicity and practicality. And after a series of meetings these ideas are created into realities.
They now find that pleasures of a beautiful memory can still be achieved minus the extravagance attached to the wedding. To focus on the right concept and the purpose of matrimony is what is of utmost importance to them to which the coordinator adheres to strictly as much as possible.
A sage advice to young couple contemplating on marriage is never attempt to come up with a wedding ceremony and reception on a grand scale. The simpler the better.
What matters most at the end of the day is how two distinct and different personalities can be able to live and survive as one and eventually raise a family for the rest of their lives. This notion shall likewise be taken into one’s mind by a wedding coordinator.
The wedding coordinator can have a duality of roles in the lives of couples. They could serve as a butler with regards to the supervision of the marriage ceremony and reception and as marriage counselors in leading them to a happy and blissful married life.
