Finding the Right Wedding Planner Looking for the perfect wedding planner typically takes a bit of effort, but watching your dream wedding pull together makes all your hard work worthwhile. Below are tips to help you reduce the stress that may come with looking, and get you a planner you will truly love. Do Your Research Go to your prospective planners’ websites to scan photos of recent weddings they’ve handled and help narrow down your list. See if elements such as d?cor, lighting and colors are cohesive and if there’s an overreaching style that the weddings have. This is likely what the planner has the most experience in, so decide if you want it. Also look for information about the planning services they provide, their previous clients, any industry awards they have received and membership in professional associations.
5 Uses For Planners
Calling Your Favorite Picks
Overwhelmed by the Complexity of Planners? This May Help
Ring your top three or four picks and inquire about their availability, pricing and the cost of the average weddings they handle. If their answers match your budget and your own plans, arrange appointments with each of them. Preparing for the Initial Meeting Make sure to bring magazine tear outs, Internet printouts and other pictures or materials that help you create a clearer picture of what you want at your wedding. At your meeting, inquire about the events they’ve done and observe their personalities closely. Think you can have a harmonious and productive working relationship with them? Tell them about your style and colors and see how they respond. Enthusiasm is important. Calling Their Past Clients Don’t feel pressured to hire anyone on the spot. Spend time calling their past clients, making sure to ask questions like: > How closely did they adhere to your budget? > Can you send me a few photos from your wedding? This is an effective way checking the planner’s general consistency and professionalism. Planners’ portfolios contain their best work, and, definitely, they’ll refer you to couples they know were happy with their services, so search online for other real weddings they’ve managed. > Was the wedding just as you wanted it to be? > How quickly did they respond to your emails or calls, and were they pleasing to work with? > What did your guests have to say about how the wedding was handled? > Were there are any hitches and how were they taken care of? Sealing the Deal Spend time comparing prices, notes, impressions and formal proposals (planners should draft their overall vision for your wedding and the services they plan to offer in the form of a proposal, which would then be the basis for your contract). As soon as you’ve found your planner, call them right away and express your desire to move forward and review a contract.
