Wedding planners often say that the cost of setting up the wedding can be prohibitive and that the process is time-consuming.
“The problem is, it’s a very complex process that involves so many things,” said Liz, a 30-year-old bride from Vancouver, B.C. who chose a wedding dress in a designer wedding dress store.
“It’s so complicated that it’s kind of a nightmare to deal with.”
Liz, who is from a small community in southern Ontario, has been planning a wedding since the spring of 2015, and has been involved with wedding planning for over 10 years.
Before moving to Toronto to attend university, Liz was a registered nurse, working with vulnerable people and seniors.
But Liz said she couldn’t afford to go through the process again.
“I had to learn all the different ways to tie the knot,” she said.
“For me, it was just really difficult to make the transition.”
In her quest for a custom-made wedding dress, Liz came across a few different wedding planners that were offering free consultations online, but none were able to answer all of her questions about the planning process.
“There was no way I could get a wedding planner to do the wedding I was wanting,” she added.
The wedding dress that Liz wanted was a vintage-inspired, lace-up bridal gown, which cost about $1,500.
But she was frustrated because she was not able to find a wedding-planning agency that could assist her with the details.
Liz contacted Wedding Planner, a website that specializes in bridal wedding dresses, to see if they would help her with her planning.
“When we heard we were getting the wedding dress online, we knew immediately that we were in the right place,” said Julie, a co-founder of Wedding Planning.
“They’re a small company with a strong online presence, so we were able for us to work through the logistics of the wedding and find the best plan for us.”
Julie and Liz went to an online bridal dress retailer, which is where they discovered the best bridal-planner services, like custom-built bridal dresses, bridesmaid dresses and wedding gowns.
“We wanted to make sure the dress was exactly what we wanted,” Julie said.
After visiting a number of the best wedding-dresses-for-sale online, Julie and her husband were able in May to secure a custom wedding-dress for their engagement ceremony.
The bride was in love with the dress and loved wearing it, but the wedding was delayed because of the length of her pregnancy.
“If I hadn’t waited so long to get pregnant, we could have done this wedding in just a few months,” Liz said.
Julie and she are thrilled with the result.
“She had a perfect dress and was able to wear it in the rehearsal, in the reception, during the party, and even on the day of the ceremony,” Julie added.
“What was so exciting was that it was a custom dress and we didn’t need any alterations.”
The couple was able, however, to have the wedding in time for their big day, with a little help from the Wedding Planer team.
“With the help of the Weddingplanner team, we were just able to make it happen,” Liz added.
In addition to the online consultation, Liz said the team was able “to help us understand what each piece needed and help us select the dress that would fit our needs.”
“I was so happy that we could finally have a wedding,” she concluded.

What you need to know about wedding planning and the cost Of course, this is not the only time that the wedding planning industry is experiencing difficulties.
In January, The Economist published an article titled “Is The Wedding Planning Industry in a Hole?” in which it found that the average cost of a wedding is $1.8 million.
In its report, The Magazine said that there are several factors that affect wedding planning costs: the length and location of the engagement, the number of guests expected and the number and type of wedding decorations that are required.
“These factors can lead to significant cost increases if the wedding is not coordinated properly, with multiple parties participating in the ceremony, or if there are complications that prevent the bride from completing the wedding ceremony properly,” the magazine said.
For example, if a bride’s dress does not fit correctly, her parents are often asked to make adjustments to it.
This can cause an additional cost to be incurred for the bride’s wedding dress if it is not changed before the wedding, or it can cause additional expenses for her parents and the groom’s wedding party if they cannot make arrangements to have their wedding dress altered.
According to the article, in 2016, the average wedding cost was $2.1 million.
