Last month Instagram was accused to be the main reason that the average cost of a wedding has now increased to £31,974 - according to the National Wedding Survey 2019. 42% of couples said that they spent 30% over their budget to have an Instagram/Pinterest worthy wedding!

What to expect when you book a consultation call with Carolyn Louise Weddings…

Congratulations if you got engaged over the summer! I expect it’s all been a bit of a whirlwind with dates, locations, and visions of your perfect wedding dress, all spinning around in your head, as well as falling down the Pinterest rabbit hole, pinning images of your dream wedding. Once you start to come down from cloud 9 you may have decided that you want a bit of help planning your wedding and started to contact wedding planners to get an idea of prices and what type of help they can offer. 

One of the most common emails I get from couples is that they are looking for some help from a wedding planner and want to know my packages and prices. Unless they have specifically requested my final weeks co-ordination package, my most common reply is that we need to have a chat to find out a bit more detail so I can provide a bespoke quote and recommend a level of planning that suits the couple. 

Consultations calls can be carried out face to face (especially if you’re local), by Skype or telephone call. I wanted to explain a bit more about what a consultation call involves so you know what to expect.
