How to choose the right wedding planner

“At vælge en bryllupsplanlægger er et stort skridt i retning af en stressfuld og vellykket bryllupsdag,” siger Maureen FitzGibbon, senior designer hos arrangementet Kate & Company. “Husk at du vil bruge meget tid med denne person eller team.”

This is probably the first thing you should always have behind you while interviewing planners. Am I sure to spend the next six months talking to this person every single day?

Din bryllupsplanlegger vil være lige ved siden af ​​dig, når du argumenterer med din S.O. if budgettet, he or she will be there when a family member throws a big tantrum over your seat or when you suddenly get cold feet and begin to doubt your every life decision. Therefore, it is extremely important that you can see yourself in each of these situations in the presence of your wedding planner without reservation.

Og at finde den person er ingen nem opgave. Her er et par tips, der gør denne proces meget lettere for dig:

1. Kompatibilitets- og erfaringsspørgsmål

“You want her to be a great fit for your personality and style, but also experienced and spicy enough to fully perform the type of event you want at the level you want,” says Lisa Costin from the event planning company, En charmerende Fête.

Your planer should also ask you many questions and show enthusiasm for your style and ideas. If not, she can not be a good fit. You want to work closely together during the course of the next several months or years and plan one of the best days in your life!

Are you sure about having long meetings with her and obviously expressing your concerns – no matter how personal you are – as well as your wishes and needs? Your planer must be your advocate throughout the process, she should understand your vision and priorities and work with you to polish and fine-tune your vision, offer guidance when needed and perform a wedding day that exceeds your expectations. “

2. Gør dine lektier

For at indsnævre listen over potentielle planlægere, check deres onlineporteføljer, læs anmeldelser fra andre par (websites som The Knot og WeddingWire er gode ressourcer) og bede om referencer.

“Spørg dem, hvilke leverandører de arbejder med,” forklarer Victoria Holland for Victoria Ann Events. “En erfaren planner vil jeg være i stand til at give dig en liste over leverandører, de arbejder med, uden problemer.”

And another valuable advice from Holland: “Do not go with the cheapest solution. As with something in life you get what you pay for.”

3. Still de rigtige spørgsmål

Uanset om du beslutter dig for at interviewe bryllupsplanlægere på telefonen eller i person, er det nødvendigt at stille de rigtige spørgsmål.

“I suggest that you contain a list of five questions that are most important to you, so you can measure whether this particular planer fits best.” siger Lorrie Betsill Nielson af Unveiled Hawaii. 

“What kind of planning services do you offer? What is the average price range for the weddings you plan? What will the overall planning timetable look like you as my planner? What should you use from me? To ensure that we communicate effectively about my vision and important areas for me? And discuss what their total fees would be. “

4. Tal penge tidligt

For at spare dig selv for nogle store skuffelser og økonomiske problemer i fremtiden skal du sørge for, at A) your planner’s fees are within your budget and B) you give them enough money to do their work properly and make your dream wedding til en virkelighed.

“A good planner can work with all budgets to bring visions to life, but if everything in your planner’s portfolio is far out of your budget, it will be difficult for her to deliver the same results as the images you double-click on.” siger Jennifer Stiebel af SoCo Events. “Taler åbent om dit budget og beder om at se arbejde, de har gjort i samme ballpark til at sikre, at du ikke bliver skuffet over produktet eller chokeret over omkostningerne undervejs.”

5. Forstå hvad deres tjenester er

“En bryllupsplanlegger handler om logistik,” siger Brit Bertino. “They may provide and are not limited to the following services: site selection, supplier referrals, assist with contract negotiations with planning schedules.”

Having said that, you should also be aware that there are other types of wedding issues such as wedding consultants, wedding coordinators, wedding stylists and designers and wedding producers and understanding what their job description and services are crucial to. Otherwise you can end up with a good deal of negotiation, but whose ability to design a beautiful wedding is not so good.
