Ms Sheena Ruparelia the Managing Director Speke Group of Hotels says the event will be held quarterly as a get together for all wedding planners around town to interact with each other and discuss the wedding business and trends as they are taken through services available at Speke Group hotels.
“We shall be using this event to showcase packages and wedding promotions available at Speke Group hotels,” Ms Sheena says.
Sheena Ruparelia says planning for a wedding can tend to be hard especially if someone is to balance it with a full-time job or social commitments.
She thus recommends that hiring a wedding planner allows you to delegate those more time-consuming responsibilities to a professional who can schedule appointments, deal with service providers and all you will need to do is show up and make the decisions.
Wedding planners also assist in budgeting and scheduling because it is important to stick to the budget set and wedding planners are experts in ensuring couples reach this goal.
Wedding planners and hotels work together to recommend contacts with florists, DJs, designers, hair stylists.
