Things to Consider When Hiring a Wedding Planner

Planning a wedding is one of the most daunting jobs in the world. Whether it is a big budget wedding or a modest wedding, it can be a nerve wrecking experience. So if you want to lower your stress levels, you should consider hiring an experienced wedding planner. Though you will have to shed off some money to hire the best wedding planners, it is worth the investment. Wedding planners add immense value to the big day by allowing you to have access to their network of vendors and get the best deals on everything ranging from decorators, caterers, DJs, etc.

But in order to make your wedding day memorable, it is necessary that you hire the best wedding planner. You can find wedding planners at every nook and corner of the city, but not all of them offer top notch services. So here are some things that you must consider when hiring a wedding planner:

Know Your Expectations

Before you start hunting for the best wedding planner, it is a must that you have a clear idea of your expectations from the wedding planner. Make a list of the things that you want the wedding planner to take care of specifically; also make a list of things that are a complete no-no for your wedding. Once you know what you want, start your search.

Make a List of Wedding Planners and Interview Individually

The next thing to do is make a comprehensive list of the wedding planners in your city and getting in touch with them to fix appointments. Talk with the wedding planner over phone to get an idea whether you will be willing to work with them or not….if yes put a tick; if not strike off the name from the list. Once you have shortlisted a few planners, interview them individually. Ask them to show their portfolio; inquire about the budget required, their past work experiences, etc. Also ask how many weddings they handle at a time. If they say they handle many at a time, just strike off their name and move on to the next.

Communicate About Your Budget – Clearly

This is the most important part – you must talk with the wedding planner about your budget. Ask about the packages offered and their charges. Also ask if you will get any discounts for hiring their services. When talking about packages, make sure you know exactly what services would be offered. It is best to get a written agreement, once you have finalised on everything.

Perform a Background Check

Now you don’t need to hire a private detective for this. Just call the past clients and talk to them about the level and quality of services offered by the wedding planner you are considering to hire. Ask how happy they were with the services. If you get positive responses from most of the clients, you can safely go ahead and hire the planner.
