Why You Should Consider Hiring A Destination Wedding Planner

You’ve been dreaming about your wedding day for as long as you can remember! You know the colour palette, the cake flavour, the guest list, the venue, the caterer…. but all of a sudden you’re faced with a never-ending ‘to-do’ list in order create your perfect day. You have the ideas, but don’t know where to start. Enter the world of a destination wedding planner!

At One Fine Day, we think a wedding planner is the best investment, you will not regret it! If you haven’t yet hired a wedding planner for your destination wedding, here are a few reasons that might make you reconsider:

1. We’re experts in our industry

Destination wedding planners have the experience of planning many weddings for clients from all over the world, and are experts in our field! We know where and how to get started, the best venues & suppliers, and when each task needs to be completed, we ask the relevant questions. We can easily turn your vision into the perfect day – using our resources, connections, and expertise.

2. It’s all about who you know

In the event industry, it’s all about who you know! We’re like one big family and we tend to stick together. We maintain our connections and are constantly creating new ones. How does this help you? We are able to reach out to our connections for help on each and every wedding we plan. We know which photographers are perfect for your style, and who can design the invitations.

3. This is our full-time job

As a destination wedding planner, planning your wedding is our full-time job. We live, love and dream weddings all year round and we never tire of it. Leave all the work to us – after all, it’s what we are most passionate about!

4. Planning weddings is second nature to us

You need a person who is not directly involved in your life, and who can devote the time and resources needed to plan the perfect wedding. While your friends and family may be more than willing to help you sort the details of planning your wedding, remember this: they have jobs, family obligations and social lives too. They might also not be as familiar with legalities, supplier contracts and other crucial information that will affect your big day.

5. We know budgets and we help you stick to them

Your destination wedding planner will work with you to set a budget and then help you stick to it, stretching your dollar as far as it will go. Not a big fan of a wedding cake but can’t do without that dessert table? By understanding what’s important to you, a wedding planner will help you determine what items can be cut from the budget so you can afford to get what you want.

6. We work for you

Destination wedding planners are dedicated and devoted to each and every one of their couples! We work hard to find you the perfect venue, that ‘must-have’ table cloth that you need, and that substitute flower that looks like the one you wanted, but wasn’t in season!

7. No stress

Hiring a destination wedding planner can take the pressure off you and your groom – you’re working with someone who has done this hundreds of times and won’t let anything fall through the cracks.

Here’s what some gorgeous past clients have said about us…

SHAYE + JORDAN
Both Jordan & I want to thank you for the past 10 months. Together we created something truly amazing. It could not have been more perfect. A wedding can be a stressful time for some, however, your support, flexibility, and commitment to our special day made the whole process effortless. Every guest we have seen or spoken to since the wedding has stated that it was the best wedding they had ever attended and that they could feel the love of everyone there.
This is exactly what Jordan and I had hoped for… a wedding where people were laughing and genuinely enjoying themselves. You ladies played a huge role in creating the right atmosphere and organised the day in such a way that everything ran seamlessly. I personally am so grateful. Both Jordan and I can’t thank you enough for your time, passion and support.
We hope to cross paths with you again in the future.

PIPPA + DUNCAN
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU!!!
Our wedding and all the events were so perfect! Duncan and I are still on cloud 9 and can’t believe how amazing everything was. Our guests keep saying how it was the most well organised stunning wedding they’ve ever been to and that is a credit to you and your team! You guys are seriously the best! We are so grateful to have had you, everything ran so smoothly and looked insane! Seriously made my dreams come true and all my expectations were exceeded!

NAT + CHRIS
From ideas and styling, through to transport and accommodation, Kath, Alex, Amy, and the whole team were spot on. Their hard work and attention to detail delivered a result that was better than we could have ever imagined! And having One Fine Day there meant we could relax and enjoy the day with our friends and family. We could not recommend One Fine Day more highly!
