What to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Planner?

Aug 26, 2007
Every couple will agree that planning for a wedding is not an easy task. It is indeed an extremely time consuming task. You have to make tons of decisions. You need to make decisions on your wedding venue, gown, invitations and so on. In order to make life easier, some couples may consider hiring a wedding planner.

In fact, a wedding planner should help you to make the decisions in your wedding planning. They will know a lot of wedding services providers and help you to choose the most suitable one. It may take you a few days to search on the web in order to find a party favor shop which offer wedding favors in modern Chinese style. Your wedding planner, however, may have already known some shops which offer what you need and this saves you plenty of time.

Your planner should have created an extensive wedding checklist and you can just follow this checklist to do your preparation work. He or she will even remind you when you should prepare for which item. If you do not have any idea on the style of an item, he / she can give you advices and advise you the estimated cost so that you can always be on budget.

Besides, a wedding planner should have been helping quite a number of couples to hold their weddings. He or she should be experienced enough to help you to avoid unnecessary events and accidents that might happen. To this end your wedding planner may even help you to save money because the unnecessary accidents are prevented.

Although a wedding planner can help you to save money and time, it is not that easy to find a good one since your wedding planner should help you through out the whole planning process. In fact, not all wedding planners are equally experienced and good. A badly chosen one can easily ruin your perfect wedding.

The number one issue you have to consider is the experience of the planner. In fact experience and reputation are the most important factors when you are selecting your wedding planner. If he / she is not experienced enough, he / she will not know all the precautions you should take and thus ruining your wedding. You should always ask for the portfolio when you approach a planner.

Furthermore, you should find a wedding planner who is easy to communicate with. No One will deny that communications are the most important for any kind of service. He / she should understand your needs thoroughly. And you have to make sure that he / she understand everything you tell him / her. Otherwise you will just find everything wrong on your big day.

You should also be actively involved in the planning and decision making process. You do not just let your wedding planner make the decisions for you. Instead you are seeking for their advices and you are the one who make the final decisions. Of course you have to trust his / her professionalism. Otherwise there is totally no point to hire a wedding planner.
