Pros of hiring a destination wedding planner for your Lake Bled wedding?

If you’re having a destination wedding in Slovenia at Lake Bled and you want to hire a wedding planner, you are in the right place.

From the moment you or your partner popped the question (or maybe even before you got engaged), you’ve been dreaming of saying your vows in a beautiful place, called Lake Bled. While there’s no denying the appeal of a romantic destination wedding, the thought of planning a big event far from home can be a bit daunting. After all, you’ll have to hire vendors in the area (and negotiate their contracts). You’ll have to figure out where your guests will stay. Furthermore, you’ll have to get the scoop on the best activities to do and sights to see. That’s why hiring a destination wedding planner is key. Wedding planners from Lake Bled Wedding team can help save you time, money and a whole lot of unnecessary stress.

Here are some reasons why local wedding planners are a must-have for your planning process.

We know all wedding locations around Lake Bled.

We can serve as your directory of recommendations and reviews. When you and your soon-to-be spouse arrive with your guests, the last thing you want to do is waste precious time searching for the best authentic local restaurant or hunting down that famous photo spot. We will be able to help you craft the ideal wedding weekend schedule. Schedule that checks off everything on your must-do list.

We have connections with local wedding vendors and know the right peoples.

We know a lot of good wedding vendors. More importantly: We know the right people. As a non-local, your connections with vendors at your dream destination may not be as strong as they would be back home. We have experience booking florists, DJs, videographers, catering services and more. Above all have established a network of go-to pros in the area that they trust with their clients. After all, our goal is to make your wedding as successful as possible, so our recommendations are likely to be the best of the best.

We know what works and what doesn’t.

We will likely be able to say “yea” or “nay” to a lot of questions you may have about your chose destination around lake Bled. From the seating arrangement and the position of the photographer during your vows to how guests should enter and exit the venue, a Lake Bled wedding planner has been there, done that and can advise you on what works and what simply doesn’t in a location you may be unfamiliar with.

Experienced Lake Bled wedding planner knows all the ins and outs of permits to get married at a particular location. We know the rules of having a bonfire, and how to go about getting permission for a ceremony at a historic Lake Bled castle.

We can do the heavy research.

The less back end work you have to do, the better. If you’re jumping into a location where you have zero connections, you may find yourself overwhelmed by too many options and unsure of where to even begin (decision fatigue is real!). We can do the heavy behind-the-scenes work and narrow each category of vendor down to the ones worth paying attention to. From there, you can determine which provider best fits your style.

We can give your guests travel guidance and advice.

First of all, we are your right-hand during preparations. Furthermore, we’re also a huge asset to the guests that will be traveling to celebrate your wedding day. Chances are, not all of your guests have visited the location before and may need guidance on hotel bookings, airlines, places to eat and activities to do once they arrive. We will be able to give recommendations or help you decide where to book your guests’ stays.

We can end up saving you money.

Not only do we have a general idea of how much a service should cost in the area, but we may also be able to set you up with exclusive deals and savings. Look to take advantage of programs within planning services, which could score you room upgrades, spa treatments and more.

We can help you set a budget (and stick to it).

Since prices vary so much based on location, setting a budget without any guidance can be tricky. We can tell you if your proposed budget is realistic for the type of wedding you’re hoping to pull off or steer you toward some options that will work better for your financial situation. To avoid over-splurging, ask us what you can expect the necessities to cost before you start charging up extravagant décor and extras.

We’ll save you time.

From the endless online research and countless phone calls to the scheduling and booking process, we are the best decision you make during planning your destination wedding around Lake Bled. If you’re working full time while trying to plan your wedding, finding a spare hour to try and get in touch with a potential vendor can be a challenge—not to mention when they’re in a different time zone. From the start, share your wedding vision with us and keep an open line of communication. We will certainly make sure everything lines up to match your expectations.
