Important Questions You Should Ask Your Wedding Planner
The day of one’s wedding is supposed to be one of the most significant events in one’s life. No matter how big, lavish, quaint, or quiet you envision your wedding to be, “perfect” is what you and your fiancé strive for. Months upon Months can be spent planning, budgeting, and balancing. Patience, time management and control are necessary requirements, but as one can imagine that can prove to be quite difficult to say the least. To avoid the dreaded Murphy’s Law, anything that can go wrong will go wrong, many couples decide to hire a wedding planner to ensure their wedding goes off without a hitch. Or at least believe it will. In addition to the obvious questions, here are some additional questions of equal importance to ask when interviewing your planners and ensuring that they are the best fit for developing your wedding vision, and making your day unforgettable, and not in the way that makes you cringe. First things first. . . Before interviewing there are a few things you and your fiancé must have an idea of:
- Budget- How much are you willing to spend on the whole event. Remember you must be reasonable. You can’t expect to be given the world for next to nothing, so familiarize yourself with the costs of a wedding.
- Number of Guests- You do not have to have the exact amount, just a ballpark at least.
- Preferred Wedding Date- I suggest having a few fallback dates as well, in case you run into conflicts with vendors, churches, or venues.
- Finally. . . Your Vision for Your Wedding- Now I’m not saying you have to know everything from the choice of venue, all the way down to the color of the napkin. Just know the basics. I want a small, private beach wedding with a close family reception, maybe a nautical theme. Just an example of how in depth your description needs to be.
