Choosing the right wedding planner for your destination wedding on Koh Samui can be challenging. There are so many companies that are available on the internet and how do you know one company from the next? Here is a short list of things to consider when looking for your wedding planner on this beautiful tropical island.
Does the wedding planner live and work on Koh Samui or will you have to pay extra to have them fly in and organize your wedding? Having someone who lives and works on Koh Samui would be ideal as they will likely have the best contacts for everything you are looking for – not to mention they will save you money as they are already located on Koh Samui.
Is the wedding planner a knowledgeable, certified wedding professional or do they just help organize weddings? Having a certified wedding planner adds the benefit of professional skills that many other people would not have. Their specialized training can give you added assurance that they know what they are doing.
Does the wedding planner instill confidence in you, allowing you to relax knowing everything is being properly taken care of for you? Choosing the right company will allow you to enjoy more important things – like spending time with family and friends.
Does the wedding planner only work in the wedding business or is their attention split between other activities? When it comes to your wedding day consider having someone there who has planned and organized everything and is solely dedicated to weddings and giving you the most unforgettable memories. Knowing someone is there for you in every way will help you have the time of your life.
Who will perform your marriage ceremony? There are several choices for wedding ceremonies on Koh Samui. The religious ceremonies have very little room for personalizing your wedding service as they tend to follow more traditional methods. A Celebrant is much more flexible than the others and allows for more creative freedom to have the exact ceremony you would like. A professional Celebrant would want to meet you when you arrive on Koh Samui to discuss the variety of ceremony options you have available and to finalize your choices. At the end of the day – the person who performs your ceremony is likely to be one of the most important aspects of your wedding day.
Is the wedding planner available to meet with you if you do come to Koh Samui to inspect the island? Are they happy to take you around and show you the available venues you can choose from? Is the planner professional and friendly?
As you contact the various planners available on Koh Samui remember to ask lots of questions. Your wedding memories will ultimately be in their hands. You want your wedding day to be unforgettable for all the right reasons. Take the time to find the right company for you.
