Planning a wedding is never simple and you want the best when it comes to your wedding. To ensure that you get the best for your money you want to hire the best wedding planner possible. Selecting your wedding planner is nor just about finding a reputable wedding planner with strong recommendations, but you need to make sure that the wedding planner is a good fit for you. There are specific questions that you should ask a wedding planner, which will give you a better perspective in selecting a wedding planner.
One thing to ask and be clear on is what you are getting for your money. Make sure your contract with the wedding planner is clearly defined with exactly what you are paying for. That way there are no last minute surprises, which may put you in a panic during your wedding. Ask details such as how many wedding planner assistants there will be and are they included in the price of the wedding planner package.
Ask the wedding planner what he or she thinks about your budget and what you want for your wedding. It is important to hire a wedding planner who is comfortable with your budget and does not push you to go beyond your budget. You want a wedding planner who understands your needs and accepts the budget you have planned for it. If your wedding expectations are beyond what your budget can fulfill, then you want a wedding planner who will gently explain that to you and help you work to plan your wedding within your budget.
Also check with the wedding planner to see if he or she is familiar with the vendors and venues you have in mind. You don’t want to be pushed to work with vendors that you are not comfortable with or aware of. Although a wedding planner can give you a great inside scoop on a vendor you are not aware of, you still want the wedding planner to be knowledgeable about other vendors as well.
Once you start feeling comfortable and in sync with a wedding planner, your wedding coordination will go much smoother and you will have a peace of mind.
