# Reason 1: A wedding planner or coordinator will help you selecting the best vendors and staff

“Daniel & I have been absolutely blown away by the dedication & professionalism by the team at Collective Concepts. We engaged Collective Concepts for a Wedding Day Coordination Package – and we simply couldn’t have had our perfect day without them! Kate was so quick to respond to any questions or provide general support throughout our wedding planning journey, which played a huge part in selecting vendors & planning our day. The ‘Wedding Planning Toolkit’ Kate provided was so helpful for things from budgeting to reminders! Our on the day coordinator was Alice, who was simply an angel. She literally ran everywhere to make sure everything ran smoothly, catered to everyone’s needs & even made sure we had food given to us when we went away for photos! We also included the Event Bar Staff package to serve drinks on the day. Steph was just incredible, all our guests wanted to know her name as she was so helpful & made sure everyone was looked after. Daniel & I simply don’t know how people have weddings without you guys! We’re so thankful for all your hard work into making our day perfect.”



# Reason 2: A wedding planner or coordinator will take care of any unexpected situations and have back up plans ready

“Long story short, Collective Concepts is an outstanding organisation and worth every cent.
When we booked the on the day planning, we assumed that it would be some phone calls and help on the day but it was so much more than that. Kate was constantly checking in with us in the lead up, dealing with any strange vendor requests and making sure the day was going to be perfect. We cannot tell you how awesome it is just to show up to your wedding and know it’s going to run to plan. We can’t imagine trying to organize people showing up and vendors calling you while you’re trying to get ready for your own wedding!
Kate was truly amazing, she ensured our wedding ran perfectly and even helped us reorganise everything with constant covid restrictions coming up – with this current unknown covid environment I would recommend Collective Concepts should be compulsory for any wedding!! Kate helped us change and make things still great many times with changing covid restrictions/plans. (See what I mean about not just being there on the day!). Kate had a backup plan for everything and always had great vendors she could refer us to. I have had multiple messages from vendors giving their thanks for being such a great wedding (one quoting it was the best event he’d ever done and was grateful Kate organized food) and this is a true testament to Kate and the team. We can honestly say our wedding wouldn’t have gone perfectly if it wasn’t for Kate and the team. Thank you so much for the best day of our lives.”


# Reason 3: A wedding planner or coordinator will make sure you enjoy YOUR day having absolutely nothing to worry about

“I seriously cannot recommend Kate and the team highly enough. From our first meeting, they made everything easy (including keeping my nine month old busy so Kate and I could properly chat!). Kate thought of everything in the lead up and made sure that we had all our bases covered, hand over was a dream and our wedding day was absolutely magical. Every aspect of the day was well looked after with Kate doing all the behind the scenes and organising with the other vendors. We always had a drink in our hand, food when we needed it and not a worry in the world which allowed us to just enjoy our day. Thank you so so, much, can we do it all again?!”




# Reason 4: A wedding planner or coordinator will check absolutely every detail on the day

“Okay… prepare for a rave review! Look no further – Kate and the team are the best in the business!

From our first meeting Kate made me feel calm and under control. She has a wealth of knowledge gained through a long career in events and hospitality. Her manner though is something that can’t be ‘learnt’. Kate is incredibly genuine, authentic, down to earth, calm and warm. She genuinely invests emotionally in your big day and will go above and beyond to ensure you don’t have to think of a single thing on your wedding day. Nothing is a problem and her chilled energy helps to calm the nerves. I seriously shudder to think how stressful our wedding day would’ve been without Kate and her crew! Everyone LOVED her and she did everything, including pinning the button hole on for my husband! Kate, thank you, thank you, thank you.”



# Reason 5: A wedding planner or coordinator will take the stress out of planning the biggest day of your life

“To Collective Concepts and the incredibly amazing, one and only Kate Blundell… I never thought I would need a wedding planner, considering myself one of the most organised people I know, but life got busy and friends suggested that we couldn’t do our day without Kate. We cannot express how happy we are with the decision to have Kate help us because Kate takes organisation to a whole new level. There is simply nothing Kate can’t do or make happen! She is comparable to the fairy godmother, working her magic in the background and making everything seamless. Kate, you are the best of the best. You do what you do so effortlessly and your attention to detail is outstanding. You have an incredible gift and the way you communicate and work with all the vendors made the whole process so much easier. Dan and I can’t thank you enough for making our dream day come to life and I will be forever grateful that we were able to pull off the epic surprise helicopter. Fancy a reunion party?”
