You are not alone! Nine­ty per­cent of cou­ples at the X‑day plan­ning stage are puz­zled by the ques­tion: is it worth con­tact­ing a wed­ding agency? After all, you real­ly want an unusu­al hol­i­day, warm mem­o­ries and the delight of friends and girl­friends. Let’s try to fig­ure out how experts help, and isn’t it time to mas­ter the skills orga­niz­ing your own wed­ding.

Services of a wedding agency or a few words about how good it is with them and bad without them”

Get ready for the fact that when you meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the wed­ding agency, you will be bom­bard­ed with a stream of infor­ma­tion about how incred­i­bly dif­fi­cult it is to pre­pare for the hol­i­day, take into account all the nuances, wreck force majeure and find con­trac­tors. Keep a sober mind! Yes, and they will imme­di­ate­ly reas­sure you, inform­ing you about the ben­e­fits and priv­i­leges of coop­er­a­tion with spe­cial­ists whose expe­ri­ence in orga­niz­ing wed­dings will pro­vide you with com­plete peace of mind.

So, wed­ding agen­cies:

  • com­plete­ly take over the orga­ni­za­tion of the hol­i­day, while the bride and groom enjoy the antic­i­pa­tion of the long-await­ed event;
  • work only with trust­ed con­trac­tors and spe­cial­ists;
  • solve all prob­lems at the prepa­ra­tion stage;
  • guar­an­tee the absence jambs” at a wed­ding;
  • knock out amaz­ing dis­counts for you;
  • nev­er go beyond the agreed bud­get. Nev­er!

The cost of such a ser­vice will cost a sym­bol­ic 10–15% of the total wed­ding costs. It sounds good if you imag­ine that you don’t have to fuss and wor­ry, but only arrive on the wed­ding day at the appoint­ed place and enjoy the fin­ished result. But you are already old enough to naive­ly believe fairy tales?

How wedding agencies work: kitchen inside”

Organizing everyone and everything

As a rule, prepa­ra­tion for the wed­ding begins with the choice of wed­ding spe­cial­ists and the venue for the ban­quet. Did you know that a wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion can be held in a cozy, fam­i­ly restau­rant, and on the roof of a high-rise, and in art space. No fur­ni­ture it can be rent­ed, no kitchen cater­ing at your ser­vice. But not all wed­ding agen­cies are inter­est­ed in orig­i­nal loca­tions. First, it sim­ply com­pli­cates their work. It is much eas­i­er to take you to one of the pop­u­lar restau­rants in the city, to offer a menu that has been test­ed on dozens of oth­er cou­ples. Sec­ond­ly, each agency has 5–6 insti­tu­tions with which they coop­er­ate, and not beyond Thanks”. There­fore, it is not finan­cial­ly prof­itable for them to look for alter­na­tive places. And if you and your fiancé hint at a cheap­er restau­rant, you will imme­di­ate­ly be told hor­ror sto­ries about dirty table­cloths, taste­less dish­es and clum­sy wait­ers. We are ready to argue: in small estab­lish­ments there are not only pleas­ant prices, but also a rev­er­ent atti­tude and sin­cere smiles.

What about con­trac­tors? When choos­ing a team of wed­ding spe­cial­ists, remem­ber: you should be com­fort­able with these peo­ple. Whether it’s a pho­tog­ra­ph­er or a styl­ist, emo­tion­al con­tact and mutu­al under­stand­ing are very impor­tant. Work with some­one you see for the first time in your life, and even on such an excit­ing day as a wed­ding idea is not the best. Con­clu­sion: even if the agency offers its own spe­cial­ists, you does not mat­ter it is worth care­ful­ly study­ing each port­fo­lio and per­son­al­ly meet­ing with can­di­dates. Con­sid­er the nuance that wed­ding agen­cies sin by chang­ing wed­ding spe­cial­ists with­out noti­fy­ing the new­ly­weds. After all, their main goal pro­vide you with con­trac­tors.

What­ev­er you take on: a dress, a hair­style, a menu, dec­o­ra­tions, a cake — all this will require your par­tic­i­pa­tion with your loved one and mak­ing respon­si­ble deci­sions. One way or anoth­er, you will immerse your­self in each stage of prepa­ra­tion with your head. But you still have to pay 10–15% of the wed­ding bud­get!

If you have the patience to google real reviews of brides about wed­ding agen­cies, you will know that there is no com­ing rain, no rel­a­tives with spe­cial needs, no clear to the time day, no one will take care of the com­pli­ance of the real pic­ture with the declared esti­mate, except for your­self. And if your orga­niz­er takes up the solu­tion of such prob­lems, then after repeat­ed reminders.

Tale of trusted contractors

To begin with, answer the ques­tion: on what basis do you choose wed­ding spe­cial­ists, say, a pho­tog­ra­ph­er? Most like­ly, the main selec­tion cri­te­ri­on will be the qual­i­ty of work and the cost of ser­vices. That is, the ordi­nary desire to get beau­ti­ful pho­tos at a rea­son­able price. It’s just hard to find an agency that puts your desires above their own goals. They can­not pro­vide every­one with good pho­tog­ra­phers at a “sweet” price! There­fore, the fol­low­ing sit­u­a­tion may arise: you will be shown the work of the best pro, and the spe­cial­ist who will be free will come to order. And believe me, they will not hes­i­tate to charge you exor­bi­tant prices for the work of an ama­teur.

In favor of unscrupu­lous com­pa­nies is the fact that a wed­ding is an event that hap­pens once in a life­time. Accord­ing­ly, it is not nec­es­sary to lure the client so that he returns again. And claims, as a rule, arise against spe­cif­ic spe­cial­ists, and not the agen­cies them­selves.

Everything will go like by oil”

The per­fect wed­dings A” to I” every­thing goes accord­ing to the planned sce­nario, a rar­i­ty. But you don’t need to get upset! Anoth­er thing is that wed­ding agen­cies are very fond of bran­dish­ing a plan tim­ing under their noses, declar­ing that their pro­gram is flaw­less, like an expen­sive Swiss watch.

In fact, we have seen sit­u­a­tions more than once when the orga­niz­ers frankly spit on the ceil­ing, ”while the par­ents of the new­ly­weds are court­ing the guests, explain­ing what’s what. As a result, there are hes­i­ta­tions and a fail­ure accord­ing to the script. It’s good if an expe­ri­enced sen­si­ble host turns out to be at the wed­ding, who will not allow seri­ous uncom­fort­able” paus­es in the pro­gram. Oth­er­wise, who is to blame? Agen­cies that have more than promised, or gullible bride and groom who believe in yet anoth­er myth of con­sci­en­tious work?

Mythical budget framework or how wedding agencies earn

The real­i­ty is that the more ser­vices you order, the more they will earn. Do not for­get about the per­cent­age of con­trac­tors, in oth­er words, kick­backs. There­fore, most like­ly, those ser­vices in which you do not need or for which you did not ini­tial­ly count­ed. As a result, you will over­pay anoth­er 15–20% of the bud­get.

They will tell you that it is fash­ion­able, orig­i­nal, sin­cere, but in real­i­ty they will offer what dozens of cou­ples have already had before you. Remem­ber what’s real­ly cool chips” for your wed­ding, only you can come up with! This hol­i­day is for you the only oneand for the agency — the hun­dredth or thou­sandth.

So, alas, most wed­ding agen­cies are pure busi­ness. The scheme is as old as the world: we find the con­trac­tor cheap­er, and sell to the client at a high­er price. The dif­fer­ence is net income.

Wedding agencies of the new generation

Despite the fact that our guide­line is the inde­pen­dent orga­ni­za­tion of wed­dings with­out the help of agen­cies, we can­not remain silent about the fact that com­pa­nies that are close to the Euro­pean ide­al are grad­u­al­ly appear­ing in Ukraine. There are still very few of them, but this trend is undoubt­ed­ly pleas­ing! Enthu­si­ast wed­ding agen­cies and cre­ative of peo­ple. They love what they do and fight for the pleas­ant emo­tions of their cus­tomers. And you can rec­og­nize them by the fol­low­ing signs:

- fixed cost of ser­vices, with­out any kick­backs” and addi­tion­al inter­est;

- self-imple­ment­ed projects that break the gen­er­al­ly accept­ed pat­terns and stereo­types;

- lim­it­ed num­ber of orga­nized wed­dings per year. As a rule, 10–15.

These agen­cies employ a small num­ber of peo­ple, each of whom is a true pro­fes­sion­al. In most cas­es, only one order cor­re­sponds to one date. This allows for large-scale prepa­ra­tion and 100% ful­fill­ment of the hol­i­day.

How many such com­pa­nies will appear in the future and whether they will be able to main­tain their rep­u­ta­tion, time will tell. Our task warn you about some­thing else: be care­ful not to fall into the hands of unpro­fes­sion­al and unscrupu­lous orga­niz­ers who promise gold­en moun­tains.
