Planned to perfection

Q. We're so busy that it's hard to find time for wed-min. My friend suggested hiring a wedding planner, but I'm worried about handing over control – should I bite the bullet?

A. Karolina Wahlman says: Even if you have plenty of thoughts and ideas, you may not always have the knowledge, time or motivation to realise them. Sharing your vision with a planner doesn't mean you hand over the reins – see it instead as adding a professional member to your team. They'll work with you towards the same goal: making your wedding incredible. Most planners can help you with all or parts of the process, depending on your requirements.

You can turn to a planner to assist you in sourcing venues, liaising with suppliers, putting together palettes and moodboards and for help with budgets and paperwork, such as timelines and run sheets. During all stages, you'll have support and receive advice to help you avoid mistakes and save money.

I also offer on-the-day coordination, which is an excellent service if you've managed all the preparations yourself but want someone to make sure the day runs smoothly, leaving you to relax and enjoy every minute of your special day.

Find an expert you feel comfortable with who listens to you and understands both your hopes and worries for the day, and they'll be a great asset.
