Defining The Role Of The Dallas Wedding Planner

Oct 25, 2007
In the past 25 years the role of the Dallas wedding planner has evolved from being one for only the wealthy to almost one of necessity. For those who could not afford help it was usually family and friends who contributed to the final stages of actually getting the wedding "off the ground." Whether these friends and family contributed monetarily or by moral support, they were the ones who were counted on to make the wedding a complete success for the bride and groom. Fewer brides and mothers were in the work force and most had plenty of time to plan their own weddings.

But what exactly is a Dallas Wedding Planner?

A Dallas wedding planner is a trained professional wedding planning expert able to tend to the needs of the bride through the planning process until the bride and groom's farewell. The planner will offer choices to the bride and groom based on their vision, personal taste, and budget and will do whatever it takes to make sure the event runs smoothly.

The full-service wedding planner will play many roles during the course of events leading up to the wedding. Therefore, it is imperative that the Trained Wedding Planner possesses certain skills to fulfill this role.

Mediator

The bride, groom and their families will have many decisions to make during all phases of planning. At some point the planner may be asked to step in as an intermediary to solve differences between bride and groom, bride and her family, or bride and her attendants.

Facilitator

Follow-through is extremely important and with all of the details couples must manage leading up to their special day, a minimum amount of stress will be felt if they feel they can depend upon their wedding planner to tend to many of these tasks.

Etiquette Expert
