Posted by admin on July 10, 2012

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.

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.
