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. Here are tips to help you cut down on any stress that may come with looking, and find a planner you will absolutely 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 maybe what the planner is most experienced with, so decide if you’re happy with it. Also search for information regarding the planning services they offer, their past clients, professional ssociation membership and any industry awards they may have received.
How to Achieve Maximum Success with Services
Calling Your Top Picks
Lessons Learned from Years with Events
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 are consistent with your budget and your own plans for your wedding, arrange to meet with them personally. 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. During your meeting, ask them about events they’ve handled and observe their personalities. Do you think you can work with them for months? Tell them your ideas about your style and colors and take note of their reaction. Enthusiasm is a must. Calling Their Past Clients Don’t feel pressured to hire anybody on the spot. Take your time calling their references and ask them a few questions, such as: > How closely did they keep to your budget? > Can you email me pictures from your wedding? This is a great way to check the overall consistency and professionalism of the planner. Planners’ portfolios are stuffed with their best work, and, certainly, they’ll refer you to couples they know were satisfied with their work, so look online for other real weddings they’ve handled as well. > Was the wedding exactly as what you wanted? > 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). The moment you’ve found your planner, call them and tell them you are interested and waiting for a contract.
