Full Description
Here at Alterkate we like to think we offer something a little bit new... We're not just wedding planners, we're not just personal assistants. We like to think of ourselves as a cross between the two but with a whole lot of love, friendliness and companionship on the side, whilst being half the price of a traditional wedding planner. How do we achieve perfection for such a low price? Our packages allow our teams to be the friend by your side, through dedicated online support, regardless of location, to create the ultimate wedding at an affordable price. Forget eye watering price tags and hidden expenses, what you see is what you pay. We have a whole range of suggested services to suit all needs, from traditional on-the-day bridesmaid services, to proposal planning, help with planning your big day fitness regime and even picking up on those wedding-related chores you just don't have time for in the run up. We live by our motto, "Your Wedding, Your Way". Browse through the details of our packages to see how we can complete your wedding day. If you need something above and beyond our suggestions, then just go ahead and drop us a message, we are always here for you.

Every bride NEEDS an Alterkate!
Alterkate kept me focused and positive and she had a sixth sense and could tell when I needed a helping hand or a shoulder to cry on. Before I knew it, I had emails with tonnes of new potential venues. She approached it from all angles to ensure she found the right venue that suited us. From sourcing a band and photographers, to favours and food ideas. Whenever I needed help or advice or just to vent, she would be there, be it emailing back on a Sunday morning or calling me back within seconds to keep me calm and reassure me that all is ok. Every bride NEEDS an Alterkate!
