Hiring a wedding planner is more than helpful when you want your Big Day to be both absolutely unforgettable and truly stress-free as well. Before you jump into signing a contract, though, you should first make sure to ask the right questions – they will teach you more about your wedding planner and they will make you see whether or not she is really compatible with your wedding style.
What are the “right questions”? What are the important things to ask before hiring a wedding planner? We have gathered some of them right below – so read on and find out more.
- How many weddings does she book in a month? If you need someone to help you plan the Big Day from A to Z, your wedding planner should not have more than 1-2 weddings to handle every month. Otherwise, she might not be able to dedicate all her time to making your dream event come true. On the other hand, if you simply need someone to help you with tips of advice every now and again or if you need someone to help you with a wedding planner blueprint, hiring someone who books more weddings can work out better.
- How does she work – in a team, or all by herself? What’s more, what happens if she cannot be there for your wedding – will there be someone else to replace her? These questions can give you a better idea of how much attention will be put in your wedding and they will also teach you about your planner’s emergency backups as well (so that you can be completely relaxed on your Big Day).
- Can she tell you more about the extra-fees? If you are like most brides, budgeting is important to you, so it’s crucial that your wedding planner tells you about all the extra-fees you may have to cover along the way. Even if she doesn’t actually charge extra, she should still be able to inform you about other vendors’ approach to this issue, so that you can be fully prepared.
