Why Hire a Planner?
With an average cost of around $30,000 - $35,000 to get married in New Zealand, you want to make sure that you’re really realising your dream wedding, so that the memories aren’t eclipsed by the cost.
Of course there are ways to cut costs by going DIY, but these also usually add stress – i.e. needing to find all of the materials and actually sit down and make 100 or so favours or finding people to clean up after the wedding you’ve held at your family home. A planner will have insights about vendors and relationships that undoubtedly offer benefits to you, the Bride and Groom, saving you money in the long run.
Maybe, it’s not even a matter of finance. You could be a busy working couple that just simply doesn’t have the 250 or so hours or so spare that it takes to plan a wedding, or perhaps it’s that you live in New Zealand but want to marry overseas or conversely, you live overseas and wish to marry here in New Zealand, in which case, the local knowledge of an experienced planner is a godsend. Whatever your situation, whatever the level of help needed, Harlow Garland are here to make your wedding true to your vision.
By hiring a wedding planner to take care of the details and liaise with vendors, you’re able to have your vision preserved and eliminate the stress and heartache of compromise. Everything will be ready for your arrival and immersion in this special moment of your lives together. But it's also important to choose the right one. With so many 'pop-up' planners in the market, it's important that you choose one with the experience and knowledge to handle any situation with grace and aplomb.
