How to Find the Right Wedding Planner for You

Nov 16, 2021 | Weddings

Congratulations on your recent engagement. Now the real fun begins – planning your wedding! You are smart to be thinking about hiring a wedding planner. Your big day should be about you – not all the nitty-gritty details. Leave that to the experts to stress over. 

There are some people who have the gift of planning weddings. They are able to organize all of the details, stay on top of deadlines, and make sure that everything goes smoothly on your wedding day. If you’re not one of those people who has a knack for planning events, then hiring a wedding planner might be just what you need! Whether it’s someone to help with budgeting or just someone to keep track of vendors and contracts, working with a professional can save you time and stress during this exciting time in your life.

This article provides some things to think about and look for when you are choosing the perfect wedding planning for your special day. 

Tips on Choosing a Wedding Planner

  1. Find a wedding planner that is in your budget range and has the same style as you. 
  2. Don’t hire a friend who just “loves planning weddings.” This is one the few times in our life when a professional may be necessary to avoid and issues with your friendships. 
  3. Ask for referrals from friends or family members who have had weddings in the past. They will be able to tell who you they liked or disliked, and why. 
  4. Look through online reviews to see if their prices are reasonable and they offer what you want.
  5. Don’t feel pressured into signing with someone just because they’re local – this will only add more stress on top of an already stressful time.
  6. Meet with at least three planners before making your final decision, then sign a contract once you find one that’s perfect for you!
  7. Remember to be patient throughout the process so it doesn’t get overwhelming!

When the day of your wedding finally arrives, you want to feel confident that everything has been taken care of. The best way to ensure this is by hiring a professional planner who will take on all the details and be there for you every step of the way.
