South Florida  Destination Wedding: Wedding Planner

Yes, if you are planning to have a Destination Wedding in South Florida, one of your “homework” is to find the perfect Wedding Planner/Consultant.

In other words, you need someone here in South Florida to be YOU. Just as United States has embassies all over world and their ambassadors are the highest ranking diplomats who represent our nation in those countries. The same way, you will need someone to be your representation here when planning your wedding from a different state or country.

But how can you trust someone you don’t know  personally? Well, that is part of your homework:

1. See their reviews. In their website, Google, Yelp, WeddingWire.com, Facebook and in different Social Media websites they should have reviews.

2. Ask them questions. Ask, ask, ask! They should be knowledgeable of this type of weddings, about the area, best places, about the venues, weather and vendors.

3. Facetime, Skype. Have at least an interview through Facetime or Skype.

4. Quick response. See how quick they respond to your e-mails and phone calls.

5. Chemistry. Make sure you are booking someone you like. Trust your senses.

Is it necessary a Wedding Planner?

Image

Well, it depends on you, Bride. If you have some experience on planning events, you think you can handle the stress, you have people around you can really trust and know they will do everything they are suppose to when the big day comes without you worrying about it . Of course you don’t need a Wedding Planner! Why would you pay more money when you already have all these other expenses, right?

The thing is most of the brides don’t want to handle the big amount of stress a wedding has, brides want to make sure when they remember their wedding in the future, they don’t remember a nightmare, stress, tears, tiredness. In other words, every bride wants to have nice and beautiful memories of her wedding day, am I right? Yes!

Straight to the point, do you have few hundred dollars you think you can spend on a Wedding Planner? Do you? If you do, use them! A Wedding Planner is not a luxury, it is an investment! It is worth it! It is not a waste of money, you are paying to have “another YOU” handling all the stress, while the “real” you enjoys her wedding day. Is it making sense? Hope so!

Tip: Want to save some money? Hire a “Day of” wedding planner, instead of a Full-service wedding planner. The “Day of” wedding planner will help you a week before the event, making sure everything is flowing with all the vendors, venue, ceremony site and during your wedding day he/she will be handling all the stress, last minute problems and full coordination of your whole wedding, before, during and after your event begins.

Affordable Wedding Venues in South Florida Part 2

As posted in our last blog “Affordable Wedding Venues in South Florida” if you are not Paris Hilton or JLo, you might be going through the same situation as many brides, trying to find the best prices possible for your wedding ceremony and reception. As I mentioned before, doing some of the wedding planning yourself can save thousands, yes! Thousands you can use for something else.

What to do? 

First, what you are going to need is TIME! Searching for the right place for your wedding venue is going to take some of it. Any banquet hall/hotel is going to charge you around $40 per person plus taxes, just for the food, tables, chairs and basic linens. Everything else, you have to pay for it; decoration, lighting, draping, centerpieces, ect, ect… Mmm! Are calculating? Yes, a lot!

Before I help you find your wedding venue, let me tell you an experience I had decorating a wedding recently. I was able to decorate and plan a complete wedding reception with a budget of  $3500 for 100 guests, this is what it included: Food, tables, chairs, complete table set up, dishware, glasses, silverware, linens, chair covers,  servers, centerpieces for 11 tables, whole room draping, ceiling draping with lights, uplighting, torches, a romantic bonfire, security and the venue rental. Sounds good for that amount of money, right?

Where?

Good question, where? Where would like to have your wedding reception at? Beach, historic, garden, lake view?

I am going to recommend you to take a look at this website: Florida State Parks, here you will find a complete list of the State Parks available for weddings. Most of them offer wedding ceremonies sites and pavilions for your wedding reception. Pavilions? Yes!!! Trust me, if you want to save some compared to a banquet hall or hotels, theses pavilions might be a very good option, all they need is an “Extreme Makeover”, some wall and ceiling draping, uplighting, some chairs, tables, ect, ect. Some companies offer these services for an affordable price. Like I said, some of the wedding planning has to be done by you or your bridesmaids but it will save you some money. How about the food? Just contact some catering companies. They will deliver the food for you and offer a serves at additional prices.

Here you have a list of some of the State Parks:

Affordable Wedding Venues in South Florida

I have to be totally honest with you about this subject, if you’re not Paris Hilton nor have the money JLo has, your wedding expenses might be way out of your reach. So let’s be realistic, you want to have the wedding of your dreams without going bankrupt, right? But the reality is that if you go to a nice hotel or banquethall and ask them for a quote, it won’t be less than $35 + taxes per person. Are you calculating? Yes, it’s a lot of money when you have to add decorations, photographer, videographers, limo and all the details about a wedding.

I went through the same process you might be going through right now, calculating, budgeting, saving plans and asking for quotes. However, the best advice that I can give you is that you take the time to do “some” of the wedding planning yourself,  you will save a lot of money.

In South Florida, there are so many beautiful state parks where you might be able to have your dream wedding and save some money on the side. State parks in South Florida offer a wide variety of places, views, settings and very good prices. They are perfect for outdoor ceremonies and breathtaking receptions. Note: You are going to have invest some time and money to transform your venue and make it look stunning but it’s worth it compared to the thousands of dollards you would need to spend in one of theses fancy places.

I don’t have anything against expensive hotel venues or banquethall, not at all. If you have the money, spend it! But if you are like most brides wanting to save some $$$, this is for you to read.

In our 2nd Part of “Affordable Wedding Venues in South Florida” I will you more details about some states parks, locations, amenities and prices.
