I. The role of a wedding planner

1. Who is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a specialist who helps with the conception, organization, and management of a client’s wedding. Weddings are important events in people’s lives, and as a result, couples are frequently willing to spend a sizable sum of money to ensure that their weddings are well-organized. Couples with busy schedules and little free time usually hire wedding planners to find and manage wedding venues and vendors.


2. What are wedding planners' responsibilities?

  • Initial consultations with clients to discuss wedding packages, the type of wedding desired, and their wedding budget.
  • Meeting with clients to discuss wedding details such as venue selection, entertainment, catering, and decoration preferences.
  • Scheduling client meetings to your potential wedding venues and meet with vendors such as florists, photographers, caterers, bakers, and invitation designers.
  • Contract negotiations with selected vendors and payment as needed
  • Ensure the timely printing of wedding and rehearsal dinner invitations, as well as wedding programs and place cards.
  • Making arrangements for the timely delivery of wedding supplies and equipment to the wedding venue.
  • Assuring that clients’ wedding gifts and personal belongings are packed and secured in a designated vehicle.

II. Guide to hiring the best wedding planner

1. Know Your Vision

While this might emerge with the correct direction throughout the wedding planning process, it’s useful to understand your goal before selecting your wedding planner.  The goal or vision of the wedding depends on your plans. A detailed description of the plan such as the size of the wedding, the number of guests attending, the classic or modern style, etc… will help your wedding planner easily grasp it. From there, both sides can discuss more deeply, agree, and achieve the optimal cost and time when implementing.

“The most important advice I can give engaged couples is to be aware of who you are and what you want from your wedding” according to McDowell.

2. Ask Your Social Network

Utilizing your network is one of the first steps to locating the ideal wedding planner. Inquire about recommendations from friends and family, then start compiling a list. “Ask people. Ask the couple about their planner if you attended a wedding that you adored, advises Karver. They’ll be able to share their personal experience of working with your wedding planner.



3. Check Magazines, Websites, and Events

You might find your wedding planner by looking at other resources in addition to scouring social media and asking your social network. There are local resources that couples can check out, like bridal exhibitions and open houses for various sites. These two are excellent examples of how wedding planners interact with potential couples. Check out websites or periodicals devoted to wedding planning as well. Look at the credits to find the wedding planner who worked on a real wedding you’re obsessed with.


4. Discuss Budget and Fees

Make sure the ideal wedding planner is within your means as well. Before making a decision, confirm that you and the services of your wedding planner are on the same page. Determine the kind of assistance you’ll require (full service, partial planning, or day-of event management), then look at a planner’s pricing structure. Find a planner with flexible pricing if you feel like you want one type of package with the opportunity to add more later.


What you are investing in, according to Mahler, is your wedding planner’s expertise in wedding planning, their capacity to anticipate issues or problems in advance, and their network of incredible vendors that they can recommend to you.

5. Double-Check Services

Even while a planner might have the aesthetic you’re going for, you should also be sure they can offer the services you require from your wedding planner. To feel secure knowing that you can ask questions and feel taken care of before the wedding, knowing that you have phone and email access to your planner. So that you can relax knowing that everything will arrive on time and with all the run-of-show details, you would want to know that they will maintain communication and coordination with your vendors leading up to your wedding day.

You should also confirm that they will draft your day’s schedule and review contracts as additional important services.
