If you reside in Delhi and want to organise a beautiful wedding in an exotic location, then you should hire a wedding planner in Delhi to take care of all the logistic needs that go into organising a big ceremony in a different city. However, if you want to do everything on your own, then we suggest that you should do thorough research before you jump into this task. While many elements go into organising a beautiful destination wedding, one that attracts the attention of everyone is the décor you choose for the special day. You must realise that choosing a spectacular décor for your destination wedding will cost a lot of money. If you want to go into the specific, then you should read this blog carefully, here we have put together the approximate cost of décor that was shared with us by some of the best destination wedding planners in Delhi.

Before we dive into how much it cost for decorating the wedding venue, you must know that there is no fixed price for it. The reason being, cost of decoration can vary significantly based on the location. Furthermore, the scale of decoration and how many elements you have put in it will inflate the cost further.

Even before we start talking about the cost, we must first figure out what do we mean when we talk about the décor of the best venues for destination weddings in India.

The elements that make up the décor of the wedding venue

The basic setup

1). As the name suggests it includes the platform, draping, Banquet, upholstery, chandeliers, vase, furniture, and many more.

This number can vary greatly depending on how many people you have invited for your wedding ceremony. Furthermore, if you want to organise your wedding ceremony in an expensive place like Europe, United States, Canada, Turkey, and others, then you have to pay a much higher cost for your décor alone.

Difference between in-house and professional wedding planners.

Many people don’t have a clue about the differences between an in-house wedding planner and a professional wedding planner. If you have the money, then you can simply hire one of the best destination wedding planners in Delhi to ensure that your marriage ceremony goes ahead without any hitch. However, the problem arises if you are on a budget and want to cut costs. In such a situation, you may sometimes hire an in-house wedding planner. However, we have to warn you that there is a big difference between the service quality of an in-house wedding planner and the professional one. Once you hire wedding planners in Delhi (professional) then you don’t have to worry too much as they have the skilled manpower and experience to do it successfully. The in-house wedding planners on the other hand are not professionals and they work on a shoestring budget that reflects on the quality of service they provide. In this article, we will share with you some major differences between a professional wedding planner and an in-house wedding planner so that you can make an informed choice.

How a professional wedding planner is far better than a renowned wedding planner

 

The time, effort, and resources both can spend

An in-house wedding planner has to deal with several weddings at the same time. And as they are planning more than one wedding simultaneously, they are not able to give all their attention to a single wedding, which in turn can affect the quality of their service. A professional wedding planner, on the other hand, would take only one wedding ceremony at a time and would allocate the requisite time, and manpower to ensure it goes ahead smoothly.

Business and focus

The main focus of a hotel business is selling food, renting out rooms, and hosting events. Their in-house experts (which may be one or two in number) are there to organise a wedding in their hotel. Since the number of people who are organising the wedding ceremony is very few, there will be lapses in terms of planning and execution. On the other hand, for the professional planner, this is the focus area of their business.

There is a single point of contact

If you want to plan a destination wedding in an exotic locale, then it would take 6 to 8 months in the planning process only. The hotel staff who are engaged in various other activities would not be able to give that much amount of time to plan for your wedding. You may all so be dealing with different heads in the hotel apartment that includes security, sales, reservation, and concierge, and so on. On the other hand, a professional wedding planner allows you to deal with only one person for the entire duration right from the planning to the final execution of the project.

These are just some of the reasons why you should always hire a professional wedding planner and not rely on in-house experts to organise your wedding ceremony.

How to plan your meeting with the wedding planner?

Wedding planners are a godsend for those people who either are pressed for time or have very little experience in organising big ceremonies. As most of us now live in nuclear families in the cities, the demand for a wedding event planner in Delhi and other metros is on the rise. Organising a big marriage ceremony can be a very stressful affair where you have to coordinate with all the wedding vendors in Delhi or any other city where you live. However, if you have the money, then a professional will ensure that your marriage ceremony passes off without any problem. Even if some problem crops up, then these professionals have the experience and skill to navigate through them and ensure that the marriage ceremony goes on without a hitch. In this article, we will share with you some tips that we have sourced from one of the top destination wedding planners in Delhi on how to optimise the time you are spending with your wedding planner to get the best decision about your needs.

Optimise your free time

When you are in the planning stage itself and you have a lot of free time, then you should optimise it to gather some inputs for the marriage ceremony planning. You hardly want to be in a situation where you have to think about everything the first time you meet your wedding planner. Therefore, make a list of all the important questions that you wish to ask your wedding planner regarding the wedding decor ideas, what kind of permission they will need, the vendors they want to hire et cetera. This will ensure that your meeting with the wedding planner goes on smoothly and you do not have to think about any last-minute questions.

Explanation

When you are in the meeting with your wedding planner, then it is a nice idea to jot down any point that you feel needs further elaboration. Either you can ask these questions at the end of the meeting or if some questions crop up after the meeting is over, then you can email them seeking clarification or simply phone them. Working in tandem with your marriage planner is the best way possible to organise a marriage ceremony.

Keep the meeting small

The wedding planners are highly professional people and you don’t want to burden them by organising a meeting where your entire family starts pestering them with innumerable questions and suggestions. It would only confuse the situation. You should invite only the most important decision-makers to the meeting so that it goes on smoothly and there is no confusion during the planning process itself.
