What’s your everyday life like as a wedding planner?

Sandra from Bespoke Weddings Santorini: “As an independent wedding planner, I have no fixed working hours, but my office hours are from Monday to Friday. The weekend is me-time, so I take time for myself and my loved ones, unless there is a wedding on a Saturday or Sunday.”

“I plan my day with a diary planner the evening before. I plan everything and create such a structure because I’m my own boss! You can never plan too much, which is why I really suit my job as a wedding planner! I have a weekly, monthly and yearly planner too, so I can set my own goals and organise the timings of everything, even down to each social media post.”

“In addition to the office work, which mainly takes place in front of the laptop, I create mood boards for my couples based on the meeting, wedding concepts, time schedules for the wedding day, make payments, create overview lists for my couples’ packages.”

“I skype with the couples, as many times as they feel necessary, I visit my partners in the industry to maintain contact, to exchange creative ideas. I also have regular meetings at venues, so that I can envision each and every destination wedding there.”

What do couples underestimate when planning?

Sandra from Bespoke Weddings Santorini:

“I think many people underestimate how much time I spend on planning each and every detail. For just an email, I need an hour or two, depending on what the issue is and how quickly the research takes. Even a small wedding takes time, because I attach great importance to quality. Everything has to be right for a special event to sit and run correctly.”

What are the challenges when planning a wedding in Santorini compared to planning a wedding at home?

Sandra from Bespoke Weddings Santorini:

“Here in Santorini it can be difficult without a planner: Which papers are needed and how do I get them? How do I contact the registrar? Which location suits me? Where’s the best place to eat? Which service providers are trustworthy?”

“I get to know couples in a personal conversation. A wedding is always personal and it has to involve harmonious cooperation between the couple and myself, so I really get to know their every desire. I want to be a friend and not just a service provider.”

“Each wedding is tailor-made for the couple and so very individual, with every package. I also offer additional services for a fee: food & cake tasting; a hair & makeup trial, venue visit and other meetings with various service providers.”
