What made you decide to involve a Wedding Planner /Coordinator in your Wedding? David and I always wanted a small wedding abroad, due to that decision we knew from the start that due to logistics we would need a wedding planner. We are also both very busy with work, so we new we needed the extra help.
What was the deciding factor for you when it came to choosing Timeless White? White? I did a lot of online research, and after reading reviews I decided to contact Emma, her reviews were stellar and her website was very appealing to my taste. After our initial Skype interview in which Emma was so knowledgeable and overall a wonderful person I knew she would be the support we needed for our big day.
What did you enjoy most about having Timeless White involved? Having Timeless White involved really took off a lot of stress that comes with planning a wedding, especially one overseas. Emma was extremely organized and I knew she would not leave out a single detail to ask us in regards to what exactly we wanted for our wedding day. Even in times of stress for myself as a bride Emma was always calm and reassuring, which really helped to put my mind at ease. We communicated so often during the one-year planning process, and she always responded promptly to my questions, I am going to miss seeing her emails in my inbox.
Do you think that Timeless White saved you time, money and/or worry? As I mentioned above, having Timeless white saved us a great deal of worry, I can honestly say I would not have been able to pull off such a magnificent wedding (not even close) without her. Having Emma as our planner also saved us a lot of time as she did most of the communicating with the venders therefore we just got to choose who we wanted to go with in the end and all the fun parts of vendor selection.
How did you feel on your Wedding day, knowing TW were involved? Emma was there from the very start of the day as we were getting ready, until the late evening. Having Emma there was such a relief, she set up the venue wonderfully, it truly turned out beautiful. Her presence was much appreciated by my whole family who also commented on how wonderful she was. We were also given a very detailed itinerary from Emma so we knew exactly what was happening when, which was very beneficial. When you are getting married everything happens so fast and you lose track of time so it is great to have someone there to keep the events of the day on track. All in all, I knew I had nothing to worry about because Timeless White was there.
What is it that makes you feel you would recommend TW to future Brides to be? On top of TW being amazing in terms of saving brides time and having the reassurance that everything is going to work out perfect, one of the other biggest things for me was that Emma knew the best wedding suppliers such as photographers/florists etc. Due to the fact that Emma knows the best in the business personally I feel like you have a better chance of booking these individuals. For example, Our photographer for example that Emma recommended turned out to be absolutely phenomenal, we couldn’t be happier and I doubt I would have sourced him on my own.
What would you say to someone who thought Wedding Planners were expensive, unnecessary and controlling? I always knew going into my wedding that I wanted a planner. It is very true that although planners are not cheap they end up saving you money due to their expertise in sourcing and their connections. For example our wedding was on a weekday and therefore, Emma contacted the venue after they came back with a price and negotiated a lower price due to the time of the week we were getting married. All these little things save you money in the long run. In terms of being controlling TW was the furthest thing from that, Emma always wanted our opinions on every single little detail and was never opinionated or pushy in anyway. However, if I wanted her opinion on something such as the table décor she was quick to make wonderful suggestions. It was really like having a friend to bounce idea’s off of which was fun. In the end, having a wedding planner made our day so much more effortless and we were able to have the best day of our lives without having the stress factor that many couples face on their wedding day.
