Tuesday Tips — Hiring A Wedding Planner

264326_535341806524292_312109632_nPlanning a wedding is typically a lot more work than you EVER think it’s going to be. What could be so hard about having all your closest friends and family (and your parent’s closest friends and family…and your groom’s parent’s closest friends and family) coming together to celebrate? Oh, and you have to feed them. And entertain them. Oh wait…maybe it IS a lot more than you expected.

We’ve talked to many a bride who really wanted to do it ALL themselves, but then quickly realized they couldn’t do it all AND enjoy the day. Who wants to be dealing with details, vendors, questions, problems, drama and the like on one of the most important days of their lives? Not you. You want to be pampered. You want to be relaxed. You want to be focused solely on getting ready, having fun and enjoying your fairy tale wedding. Believe me, you really do! And all that will come with enough drama of it’s own!

So how can a wedding planner help you? Where do you start? And what are some things to look for? Well, there are many qualities a great wedding planner needs to have, but here’s what we think should be at the top of the list:

1. Personality — This person is going to be a major part of your life for several months leading up to your big day. Do you “click” with them? Do they seem genuinely interested in making your day the way you and your spouse-to-be want it? Do they appear organized?

2. Connections — Knowing who to trust and what prices are fair can be very stressful. Wedding planners typically have relationships with many types of vendors. Because of these connections, they usually have better negotiated rates than you could work out on your own. This will end up saving you lots of time and money in the long run. Do they have a list of wedding vendors for you to choose from?

3. References — Being able to talk with other couples who have worked with your prospective planner is key. You will want to hear from their experiences. Do they have pictures on social media of other weddings they have done? Do you like what you see?

Personality…Connections…References. Does your wedding planner have these three things?
