Why you should hire a wedding planner in Greece

The age-old question of why do you need a wedding planner in Greece is the one we hear most often!  And, really the answer can be both simple and complicated. You need a wedding planner because it’s simply unattainable for the modern couple to plan a wedding without sacrificing all of their free time for one or more years! For brides who don’t know where to start, hiring a wedding planner to help them along the way seems to be the wisest choice. However, for brides who feel like they’ve got this from the get-go, or think that extra help isn’t financially feasible, is spending thousands on a planner worth the investment?

How important is a wedding planner?

You may have helped a friend plan their wedding day or spent hours on Pinterest creating your dream board, but that doesn’t mean you have or know how to tackle it solo. There are so many different reasons why we suggest hiring a wedding planner in Greece, especially if you’re planning a destination wedding. Between booking vendors in another country, organizing your RSVPs, and managing your budget, planning can be a lot of work. Add in your normal day-to-day responsibilities and a trip to a foreign country, and it’s enough to make even the most organized couple to feel stressed. Working with a pro can take a huge weight off you and your partner, leaving you time to enjoy the process and that just engaged glow.

Here are five reasons why you should hire a wedding planner in Greece (and make your wedding journey a piece of wedding cake!).

A wedding planner can help with your budget constraints, legal contracts and paperwork

A good planner can help you make the most of your wedding budget. While hiring a planner may seem like a big chunk of your budget, it’s an investment that will give you peace of mind and ensure you enjoy the moments you’ve spent months planning. In Think Happy events we can stretch your budget to fit your needs because we know what’s more important. We’re always focusing on spending where there’d be more impact and save on things you didn’t even know you could save from. Even small decisions can add up to big savings when you have a planner who knows what they’re doing. Plus, with an expert behind all your decisions, purchases, and negotiations, you’ll save money in the long run. We will be able to score your insider deals, and we’ll always look out for your budget so you don’t have to. Also, we know the legal requirements of getting married in Greece and we will tackle the confusing paperwork so you don’t have to. We will be there advising you and handling the important laws, forms you need to fill, paperwork you need to notarise and all the little loopholes you’ve got to pay attention to. To make things easier for you we have a detailed blog post with everything legal-wise you need to know about your destination wedding in Greece and all the valuable information!

A wedding planner in Greece will fight for your wedding vision and keep everything on track

In addition to helping couples budget and supervising sticky details like legal contracts, the most important perk of a planner is having someone who’ll fight for your wedding vision from start to finish. The right planner will help you make the wedding of your dreams a reality. Whether you’re envisioning a formal destination wedding in an elegant estate or a rustic outdoor ceremony in Santorini, the right planner will know all of the best venues and vendors to pull it off.  Also, don’t forget that while many vendors (like florists and caterers) tackle more than one wedding per day or weekend, we will be focused only on your special day and will push to make sure everything goes according to your unique plan and vision. It is a long journey to the altar. On the wedding day, you want someone who knows what’s in your brain and what you need!

Your planner can keep things stress-free

Think of your wedding planner in Greece as a safety net at your destination wedding. If anything goes wrong (and something typically does every single time) we’ll be there to troubleshoot so you won’t have to fret. From a vendor’s perspective, working with a wedding planner instead of directly with the bride or groom or their parents can keep things streamlined and stress-free. Also, as the wedding day gets closer, your wedding planner will iron out last-minute details and problems without you even there were there.

A Wedding Planner in Greece can connect you with the right vendors

Apart from being your eyes and ears in Greece, we always use our vendor relationships to our couples’ benefit. With years in the wedding business, we have trusted professionals that will make our couples vision reality! We can ensure the high quality of the business we work with. Connecting couples to the right people is what makes a good wedding planner and we take pride in the network we have built. For example, if we call our lighting guy and on the wedding day we don’t like what he’s brought, you can be sure we’re going to have him add extra lighting and the couple won’t get charged for it. For us, weddings are repeat business. Vendors aim to please each other so we bring them more business and built our community.

Planners can help you coordinate the entire day, not just one aspect

A wedding that’s divided over multiple venues with their coordinators may require less overall coordination but even if a venue offers an in-house coordinator, we advise couples to remember that that person will likely only be coordinating the specific details that venue is responsible for providing, like food or space itself. A full-service planner will handle it all, start to finish—from crafting the vision for your event to hiring and meeting with your vendors and coordinating a weekend of activities for guests. We are focused on helping you juggle all the little details that will make your special day so special. And juggling details is the last thing you and your fiancé want to worry about on your wedding day.

Even so, full wedding planning assistance may not be practical or even possible for everyone. Some brides are creative; they’re going to be able to do their print material on their own because they’re a designer or their best friend is a designer. However, some people have a vision and are great at decorating and are going to be able to manage their design, but a lot of brides have no vision, haven’t been dreaming about their wedding forever, and don’t know how to pull together a high-end wedding. This is where we come in and take a wedding to the next level, giving you a magazine perfect celebration you’ll remember fondly for years!

On your wedding day, your only order of business is to soak up every memorable second, which is why so many couples hire a wedding planner in Greece. Trust the pro you’ve hired to do their job, and let go. We want you to enjoy your day, without needless worrying. Working with a pro also means you’ll get to spend precious extra time with loved ones instead of worrying about the cake not showing up or a missing flower arrangement.

Trust us on this one—you want (and deserve) a helping hand on your wedding day. After all, this is going to be the happiest day of your life and we will be there to make it happen!
