BRIDEZILLA BE GONE
COACHING FOR WEDDINGS
FOR those that want help – but not too much help – organising a marriage celebration, there is a new alternative to the wedding planner.
Bridal coach Rachael Bentick has been in the marriage game for over 13 years as a photographer, wedding awards judge and industry event planner.
Nowadays, she also meets with soon-to-be-wedded women who need some suggestions about budget and suppliers, and helps them plan a schedule for what needs to be done and when.
But Bentick doesn’t do all the grunt work, she said she was more of a sounding board than a planner.
“It is absolutely their ideas. My point of difference is that I don’t organise it all for you – my girls have direction and have definite plans and ideas in mind,” she said.
Bentick has one piece of advice that she gives every client who meets her for a coaching session.
“Sort out what is important to you and focus your budget on one or two things.
“Maybe you love flowers so you want to invest heavily in florals and less in other areas,” she said.
Rachael and her clients enjoy a glass of champagne while discussing plans for the big day.
