Why Speedy Wedding Planning Can Work

Happy Valentine's Day to you! 

So, this is the time of year that I get a lot of couples getting in touch with me about planning their big day and it’s often seen as a challenge to get this event off the ground. However, it really doesn’t have to be a drawn out affair with the right kind of help.

I worked with a couple who got hitched a few years ago who had to turn their wedding around very quickly.  They approached me and told me their dream – to turn their wedding around in two months: challenge accepted!

There is a sort of unwritten rule that planning your big day should take a long time which is fueled by, what can be, crazy lead times on venues, dresses, caterers etc. This doesn’t have to be the case as there are so many options on every aspect of your wedding that can be organised quickly – it just takes a bit of know-how and an open approach.

Having loads of time can sometimes over complicate things where you labour over decisions and drive yourself crazy with choice. A friend of mine mentioned recently that she knew a bride who had postponed her wedding day because she couldn’t find the right dress - having tried on more than 300 already. Yikes!

Instinct is a powerful thing and should be trusted, which is what Abi and Nick did completely. Having such a short time frame was actually great because there was no time to ponder and overcomplicate. We made decisions together quickly and it came together wonderfully.

The wedding was utterly beautiful and one of the best I’ve worked on and they were kind enough to agree!

“We met Shaun only two months prior to our wedding and we had a lot to do in very little time. 
When planning the event with Shaun nothing was ever too much trouble and if we were ever in touch with questions he always got back to us quickly offering numerous options and ideas.
It was on the actual day that Shaun really made a difference for us. Everything ran even better than we could have hoped for and Shaun was always present making sure we and all our guests were happy and looked after.
All our friends and family were so impressed with how the reception went and Shaun made such an impression on all those he met.
We cannot thank him enough for making our day the best day ever.”

Are you getting married or know someone that is and could do with a professional hand? I would love to chat about your plans.
