When it comes to wedding planning, picking the right people to do the right job can certainly make or break your dream wedding. Just like in any war, getting the best soldiers to go into the battlefield with you just might be the most critical first decision you’ll make right after saying “yes” to the proposal.
Wedding planners and coordinators are quite popular these days and there are a handful of great ones in each area, city, or state. However, with all those overwhelming numbers, it might be quite taxing to choose one for you, especially since this wedding is YOUR own wedding and you would not want to risk everything on the biggest day of your life.
Here’s a quick rundown on how you can go about choosing “the one”:
Do the homework.
As in anything else when it comes to wedding planning, research is key. Get recommendations from your best girlfriends, recently married workmates, and from your family members as well. Go through an online search of nearby planners in your area or near the location where you are planning to get married, stalk their Facebook pages, Yelp reviews, and websites to get a better look at their credentials and previous works.
Call ‘em all.
After making a short list of those planners you think might be a good fit for you, be it for their designs, their great reviews, or whatever reason you might have, pick up the phone and call them. Ask about their availability for your tentative date and inquire about their services. Don’t feel obliged to book them yet because it is completely fine to have a quick consultation with planners right off the bat without having to commit 100%.
Consider all factors.
Now that you and your fiance have a better idea of the costs and the services included, let’s get down to business. You may choose wedding planners according to their expertise and years of experience but also don’t forget about their creativity and resourcefulness when it comes to the new and up-and-coming trends of today’s wedding scene. Most of all, consider your chemistry – do you feel comfortable approaching this certain planner? Can you imagine yourself working with that company and team for months and months?
Regardless of what others may say or recommend, it all boils down to you. As the bride and as the commander-in-chief of the planning team, you get to pick whoever you feel fits the job because that wedding planner will be coordinating with you day and night for weeks, even until after the wedding day.
