Nissi Beach Wedding

I am getting married in cyprus in may 08 and from looking at some of your info i havent done nearly enough!!



At the moment i am arranging eveything direct with the hotel and town hall. Would you advise a wedding planner? What extra do they do for you?



I just cant decide what to do and havent got the faintest idea where to start!!



Any help would be appreciated!!!!

  • Hey! We have a wedding planner. I was just so worried about organising things myself, felt i needed someone there who knew what they were doing! We are using Kerry from aisle of love (lots of people on here are!). Its just really nice to be able to email all my questions/advice needed and someone reply straight away! She knows all the best florists/cake makers etc.(the thought of trawling the net for cheapest, and explaining ideas to florist ect filled me with dread!) She is very reasonable too, shes earnt her money already as far as I'm concerned! I've put here a list of her duties:

    *Consultation and advice prior to your departure (this has been invaluable already!)

    * Booking of Ceremony - date and time

    * Checking all correct documentation

    * Arrangement of appointment with licensing authority, transport and escorting you to the municipality for the presentation of your documents



    * Services of a Wedding Coordinator who will be there with you whenever and wherever necessary

    * Arrangement of Flowers, Cake, Photography/DVD

    * Decoration of reception venue

    * Arrangement of transport if required

    * Reservation of Wedding Venue

    * Reservation of Reception

    * Being on hand before on and after the wedding day ensuring everything goes smoothly

    * Delivery of Photos/DVD etc before departure

    Hope this helps. Its up to you really. I'm just a really fussy/particular type of person, and this way, I know everything is going to be how I want it! and everything runs smoothly! xxxx

    Hi Mel



    Thats exactly why you need a Wedding planner, you can only do so much like going direct to the town hall & hotel but the planners will arrange the small bits & I mean small bits but because you are back in the UK it then becomes a massive task.

    I am not a wedding planner but I know some good ones all over the Island & also kerry74 who is mentioned on this forum quite a lot she is located in Ayia Napa. They (the planners) will sort out the paperwork, arrange the cars, photographers everything wedding related for your big day & most importantely they will liaise with the hotel & usher your guests on the day, they are there from start to finish.



    I have always said as long as you have the time & people within your party to act as designated marshalls to allow your wedding to run smoothly then it is not a problem, but normally it does not work that way. Kerry I have found is the cheapest for what she does & she does it superbly just ask others who have used or using her for there weddings.



    Hope this clarify's in some way what your already thinking

  • Thats great and really helpful.



    I think I will contact Kerry and get a price I suppose it wont hurt. The reason I was trying to do it myself was lack of money!! But I dont want things to go wrong though.



    Thanks again for the advice.

    Hi Kev



    Do you know of Eve from Cyprus4Weddings? What's your opinion of her? I hear lots of good reviews about Kerry74, but can't find anything about Eve....



    Thanks

    Hi L



    Yes I have worked with Eve & Evelyn at Cyprus4weddings, they are others that I reccommend along with Kerry A.O.L. I think out of the whole Island that I have been to on weddings there are only 9 yes 9 I have counted who I feel are upto a high standard in the way they go about there business. I feel too many over here are havin a laugh but the 9 I have believe the same way as me & that is IT'S your special day ( Corny yes I know, I feel sick now lol ) No seriously they are good

  • Hi Mel,



    What is your wedding date? I am getting married at the Nissi Beach hotel on the 7th May, so may see you there! I am also using Kerry74, and highly recommend her. She always replies to emails very promtly and makes you feel like nothing is too small to ask! An excellent pre-wedding service (cant comment on the rest yet!).

  • Hi Kerry



    I was worried as to why I hadnt heard anything from you!! I sent the email to [email protected]



    If this is incorrect could you let me know of the right one so I can email you again.

    Hi Mel,



    Yes that email is correct but haven't received anything from you - very odd, try again and hopefully it will come through.
