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.

How to organise a safe wedding event?

The world is slowly limping back to normal after the catastrophic impact of COVID-19 as people begin to adjust their lives by following certain safety measures to ensure that the spread of this virus is kept at a minimum. If you ask the top, wedding event decorators and planners, they will confirm that business is slowly picking up. In the article, we have shared with you, some safety measures that one of the best wedding planners in South Delhi follows to minimize the risk of COVID-19. Therefore, there is a comprehensive guideline of how to keep the guests safe when they are attending a big event like a marriage ceremony.

Selecting the right venue

The first thing as a wedding planner, you have to look for is the right venue that would fulfill all the key requirements of the event. First, you have to know how many guests, family members will arrive, and what special features need to be put in the marriage venue (tea store, selfie stand, refreshment stall et cetera). After knowing how many people will come to the event, you have to select the marriage hall (after taking the view of the client) that will fulfill the requirement keeping the minimum standard for social distancing in mind.

Risk assessment

As any big event as a marriage ceremony involves the participation of a lot of people, a risk assessment by the wedding planner is essential. The risk assessment will help you identify any problem you may face, which in turn will give you ample opportunity to find adequate solutions should those problems arise. To ensure a comprehensive risk assessment of the venue, you must have a checklist with which you should compare with the wedding venue to figure out the likely challenge you may face to enforce strict social distancing norms and other protocols that are essential during an epidemic.

Food safety

One of the most common mediums through which the COVID-19 infection can spread from one person to another is food and water. Therefore, as a wedding planner, you have to ensure proper hygiene and those people who are handling the food and drinks follow a safety protocol. Additionally, you should serve only plated food and the buffet should be dropped altogether. Furthermore, the food tables should be placed at a distance and the waiters should wear safety gloves and mask while serving food. You can also provide pre-packed lunches and instead of tea and coffee stations, you can offer them premade drinks.

Emergency plan

You should have an emergency plan in place so that in case you identify a COVID-19 19 patient who is unknowingly attending the marriage ceremony, then how to safely remove him/her from the venue and keeping all the guests safe. To ensure that the guests who are arriving are tested at the gate itself, you should have an infrared thermometer and hand sanitizers ready there with trained personnel who can quickly identify any patient of COVID-19 and do not let him/her enter the venue.
