The Art of Mastering Resources

How to Choose a Wedding Planner

You will find many wedding planners everywhere today, but will all of them be good for you? Irrevocably not! In fact, their differences can be so wide you won’t want to believe it. That’s why you can’t just go with the first one who comes along.

It’s actually crucial to do some research and make a few considerations before finally deciding on one.

Pore through online reviews, but make sure you stick to third-party consumer websites for credibility. Ask relatives, friends and coworkers what they think about the planner you’re considering. Besides, this is a big day in your live – likely the biggest even – so don’t dare take chances.

Personal Chemistry

Take note that when you hire a wedding planner, they will be the start and end point of everything about your wedding. If you don’t seem to connect well together or if you don’t even like the person, you could be looking at disaster. You’d like someone who will at least feel like a long-time friend. You’ll be spending so much time together, so if you don’t click, how do you think will that affect your wedding? Unless you’re good together, even the best reviewed wedding planner will be wrong for you.

Defining Your Needs and Their Services

Brides can have a whole variety of needs different from the others. Of course, it follows that planners provide different services as well. Begin by defining the specific role of the planner. Do you need them for everything, from concept to execution? Perhaps you’ve already thought of a concept and you just need them to make it happen. Or maybe you just need someone to coordinate with the suppliers and vendors.

The idea is to come to your meeting with the planner all prepared. Create a list so you won’t forget things. Bring photos of weddings you like and have the planner see them. There are many blogs and websites where you can just download and print them. As for the cost, planners will usually charge a portion of the total cost of your wedding, probably around 30%.

One thing you have to remember is that you don’t have to confine yourself to just one prospective wedding planner. Two or three is good for comparison. Of course, keep it apples to apples or your comparison won’t be useful. Give each one exactly the same specifics to work on when giving you an estimate.

Lastly, don’t go with a wedding planner simply because they charge cheap. In most likelihood, there will be a catch and the risk is not worth taking.
