    Bit below the belt and unnecessary.

    It would be easy to write similar remarks about djs.

    Suddenly not allowed an opinion are we. I would agree with DJs, I spent the vast majority of my life doing other jobs, Im a DJ for the easy life now

    Try Fuerteventura.

    Admittedly I've not yet tried Tenerife (am going in December), but am aware of its "lifestyle"

    Lanzarote is OK, but Fuerteventura pips it for me in terms of being laid back and chilled.
    Ive never been to Fuerteventura but would second lanza. Was there last year and going back this because I was so impressed with the relaxed feel of the place. Great out of season temperatures, different landscapes, lovely seas.

    There are similarities though - I know some great DJs, but know a lot more poor DJs.

    Wedding planners are like that too, I have worked with a few great ones who really have made a difference and produced the wedding of the couples dreams. Likewise though I have worked with many clueless ones, quite often people who have been recently married, planned their own wedding then think "I might as well become a wedding planner".

    Unfortunately the reputation of Wedding Planners as a whole is similar to that of DJs - we really aren't highly thought of.

    Exactly, which is why a 'sweeping statement' is a bit silly.

    There's certainly no 'easy life' to being a wedding DJ. I feel a lot of pressure to get everything perfect.

    Ok yes it was a sweeping statement. My view is simply that unless your in the filthy rich where you don't really have the time to do the organisation its taking away the control that most people want. But that is my view. I think a wedding planner will have a set of suppliers and you wont get the fluidity.

    I've still got plenty of control with the planner I chose, but I'll tell you something for nothing: having someone in Gibraltar who can offer me a steer and give me options that she would put her name next to is such a huge weight off my shoulders. Were I to wed in this country, I dare say it would be incredibly easy for me to organise. It's a bit more of a ball ache when I'm not there to organise a wedding and having that 'woman on the ground' to be my point of contact.
