While looking on the internet, my fiance suggested we sought professional help, so
I started researching wedding planners and soon I discovered Black Pearl Weddings.
My initial consultation inspired me to think of the basics i.e. my wedding budget,
how many guests I wanted to attend and the type of wedding venue and theme I wanted.
After speaking to Black Pearl Weddings, I was certain that this was the ideal service
to assist me in planning my wedding.
All my instructions to Black Pearl Weddings were carried out professionally and well
on time, which helped me manage my pre-wedding nerves and stress.
The first thing we did was to create an action plan that detailed what we needed
to accomplish and by when, so that we had everything well organized and plenty of
time to deal with any issues that arose. Once this had been compiled, we carried
out the tasks jointly, as I was keen to be heavily involved.
I wanted over 100 Guests to attend, with my marriage ceremony, wedding breakfast
and evening entertainment all to be held at the same venue. Black Pearl Weddings
shortly presented me with a number of venues that would suit my specification in
a detailed report, before arranging visits so we could inspect the venues I short
I had always wanted a sleek and simple wedding. My favourite colours are black, white
and red, which I wanted incorporating into my wedding theme. Once Black Pearl Weddings
were given my desired colour scheme, they prepared various design concepts that encompassed
the styles and colours I had asked and soon matched what I had in mind exactly.
With the basic concept of my wedding now in mind, Black Pearl Weddings began sourcing
all the relevant suppliers I needed, such as the musicians, confectioner and printers
for wedding invitations. A detailed list of suppliers, showing their prices and ranges
was presented to me and my fiancée so that we were able to select the ones that best
matched our budget and kept in with our theme.
Throughout the wedding planning process, Black Pearl Weddings ensured that I was
up to date with any payments to suppliers and the venue, and helped me keep a close
track of how my budget was being spent and where every penny was to be allocated.
Not only this but they negotiated on prices so we got the best value for money and
were able to get more than I had ever anticipated out of our savings.
Black Pearl Weddings handled all the administration of my wedding. They sent out
all my save the dates, wedding invitations and tracked my RSPVs. They also proof
read all contacts associated with the wedding and helped me to guarantee they were
all signed and passed back well on time.
On the day, Black Pearl Weddings were at my wedding venue early, to ensure everything
was set up perfectly. As the venue did not provide an usher, they stepped in to perform
the usher duties. They also ensured everything was running according to schedule
and made my guests feel well looked after, removing any confusion around seating
Without Black Pearl Weddings, there would have been no chance of having the beautiful
wedding that we did, as I had not realized just how in depth the planning process
would be, and I just couldn’t have fitted planning such an elaborate event around
my already busy schedule. I also just can’t convey just how much they helped with
managing the financial aspect of it and saved me money without compromising the quality
of our big day.
