When it comes to organising a wedding, The Alternative PA, wedding planner service can offer you a cost effective and stress free option.  Firstly we’re focused and dedicated and we’ve got flair, creativity and we’re super organised!  We have many years experience in event management and know all the pitfalls.  First and foremost, we spend time getting to know you, what your likes and dislikes are and what makes you tick.  We work with a list of favourable, experienced and talented suppliers, not to mention some fabulous wedding venues.  By employing a wedding planner to source your suppliers for you we are able to receive competitive discounts, which will suit your budget.  It is my aim to recoup the money you spend on my wedding planning service through our favourable suppliers.

As a wedding planner, I am able to provide you with as little or as much help and guidance in planning your memorable day.  I pride myself on my organisational & negotiation skills. Being highly organised, very personable,  with over 22 years experience in event management.  During my working years, I have organised trade stands at the’ CLA Game Fair’ and ‘Country Living Fair’ in London, fundraising fashion shows, outside broadcasts in my radio career, large business conferences and  weddings for up to 300 persons and have most recently organised my very own vintage Fairs in Grantham with over 40 traders.

Planning a wedding can be extremely overwhelming  and can create a lot of unwanted stress on everyone involved, especially if you work full time and have a household to run and family to look after,  so let ‘The Alternative PA’ support you in your wedding journey, making your day a momentous occasion for all.

We can provide a full wedding planner service through to just help on the day.  Check out our packages for more information.  To book your free consultation, (up to 2 hours) to discuss your venue, styling, budget etc, please feel free to contact me at thealternativepa@outllook.com or call 07888 679118.

“So, less than 12 weeks left until our big day!  To be honest, at first, I didn’t see the need for or the additional expense of a wedding planner. After a free initial consultation with Debbie, I realised that her expertise and wide range of contacts could be of real benefit to us when planning our wedding. It has been, for us financially a cost that we have recovered in time and savings. Debbie has sourced  a fantastic caterer, a local musician to accompany one of my friends who is going to sing for us and knowing that we were on a budget, encouraged me to go into charity shops to look for dresses and accessories.  Very quickly, I found a near-perfect dress which is now being “up-cycled” to become my dream dress for a starting price of only £75!! I highly recommend Debbie to assist you with your wedding planning. She is great to work with, has a wealth of knowledge and is professional without ever losing sight that it is your big day”.
