Finding Ways To Keep Up With Planners

Tips for Choosing a Wedding Planner Finding the right wedding planner often takes a little effort, but watching the wedding of your dreams come through makes all the homework 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 Visit your potential planners’ websites for snapshots of recent weddings they’ve managed to help narrow down your list of options. Do elements like lighting, d?cor, colors, etc. This is likely what the planner has the most experience in, so decide if you want it. Also, find information about the planning services they offer, the clients they’ve worked with in the past, industry awards and membership in professional associations.

Calling Your Top Picks
Why People Think Services Are A Good Idea
Call your top three or four picks and ask them about their pricing, availability, and the average cost of the weddings they plan. If their answers match your budget and your own plans, arrange appointments with each of them. Preparing for the Initial Meeting Be sure to bring with you Internet printouts, magazines and other pictures or materials that can help you create a better picture of how you would like your wedding to turn out. 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. Talking to their Past Clients Don’t feel pressured to hire anyone on the spot. Spend time to call their past clients and ask them the following questions: > How closely did they keep to your budget? > Can you send 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 exactly as what you wanted? > Did they respond quickly to your phone calls, emails or SMS, and were they easy to work with? > How did the wedding go according to your guests? > Were there are any hitches and how were they taken care of? Sealing the Deal Spend time to compare impressions, notes, prices and formal proposals (planners should present their overall vision for your wedding, along with their intended services, through a written proposal which then serves as the basis for your contract). As soon as you’ve found the right planner, give them a call and express your desire to hire them.
