Do I Really Need a Wedding Planner or Event Organiser?

With most people I’ve met, there is usually a lot of deliberation as to whether they should be proactive, driven and full of creativity and organise their special celebrations by themselves or if it is really a good idea to invest in some help and get a wedding planner or event organiser on board. Before I became a wedding planner and event organiser I always thought that if you can do it yourself then you should! I’d imagine that afterwards everyone would say “well done, what a great event” and that it was down to me being creative and well organised that I was able to create a magical day for all my friends to enjoy. But what I realised is that not everyone has a creative mind, nor do they know where to go to find all the suppliers necessary to take an idea and bring it to life! And perhaps most importantly, most people don’t have the time. For most people, organising an event for themselves has to be worked into their already busy day. They work, have kids to look after, maybe a new house to prepare for, and as much as they would love to do it all themselves, once they get started they realise how much work is actually involved.

To be honest it’s quite scary but also quite exciting, the potential of a year filled with opportunity, adventure and uncertainty makes me feel like anything is possible! Which is why I have decided that January’s blog is all about motivation, inspiration and well-being. January is all about a fresh start, whatever challenges 2011 brought, 2012 is a clean slate to start over or find a new way to deal with those old challenges. Here are some suggestions to help you along your way:

On the 12 Days of Christmas, Suggestions Came to Me

Christmas is almost here … a couple more weeks and you will be running down the stairs to open up your Christmas presents. Personally I think Christmas is one of the most beautiful times of the year, with all the red and green tinsel decorations, fairy lights lighting up our homes and just that magic of Christmas spirit on little children’s faces. It’s a time when everything seems possible. There are so many websites offering suggestions for how to create that perfect Christmas theme, so I thought it would be more useful to have a list of ideas of things to do, to make each day extra special as you count down to Christmas Eve …
