Having a wedding planner will ensure that you have access to all the local deals and vendors. Italian wedding planners spend their careers fostering trusted, meaningful relationships with events vendors. Meaning that you not only have access to reliable vendors that will deliver the highest possible quality, you get them at the most competitive price.

If you went directly to the vendor, they would charge you their top price for their service. Having a local wedding planner negotiate contracts for you saving time and money. They know the cost of delivering that service and will be able to deliver it at the best price.

Experienced Italian wedding planners will also know what they are doing. They most definitely have planned more weddings than you! They will know the common mistakes to avoid, helping you dodge costly errors.

Planners know where to cut costs and what is necessary, they can advise against impulse buys or splurges of money and keep a tight belt on the money bag.

Why having a local wedding planner is a good idea:

Engagements and weddings are exciting and family and friends often wish to be as involved as possible. A lot of the time, couples will recruit friends and family to help plan and organise aspects of their wedding day.

This is wonderful to have such support but it can often get muddy. Plus, this is a celebration and none of your guests should be working during the festivities.
