Before You Hire a Wedding Planner

There is no denying the fact that planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful. There are so many details to coordinate and keep track of that it is so easy to let something slip through the tracks and get either overlooked or not given enough attention.

Sure there are some brides, and grooms, who are such perfectionists that they will not delegate even a single task but for others who are willing to enlist the help of a professional a wedding planner can really make a huge difference. Not only can the wedding planner make life so much easier for the bride by handling and coordinating many of the details of the wedding but she can also help the bride find great deals through connections she may have in the industry and can make recommendations for experienced professionals that will help to make the wedding day perfect.

First and foremost a bride should carefully consider the type of role a wedding planner will play in the process of planning the wedding. Some brides may be confident handing over all of the planning details to a wedding planner, some brides may only allow a wedding planner to perform a few minor tasks and most brides will fall somewhere in the middle of this spectrum. The majority of brides who hire a wedding planner want to be involved in every step of the process but are intimidated by the prospect of planning the wedding so they rely on the wedding planner to keep track of details, make sure nothing is overlooked and deal with vendors.

Next thing is to have a budget or a dollar amount that you, or whoever is paying for the wedding are committed to spend. This is also a task that a wedding planner can help you with and would be a good idea to consult with one before you set a budget or select a dollar amount. Wedding Planners have a good idea of what things cost. Many of them also have a defined list of vendors that they can price check with, and can give you a rough estimate of what your wedding would cost. From this point you and your wedding planner can make start to plan your wedding according to your desires and your budget.

Once you and your wedding planner have finalized the plans for your wedding, you move into the timing, deadlines, and scheduling faze of your wedding. If you are going to rent a church and/or facility for your wedding, a deposit will have to be made by a deadline to reserve it and a deadline to pay the remaining balance. This is also the case with many other things such as your wedding cake, booking photographers, entertainers, and etc. Co-coordinating with everyone in your wedding party is a big challenge for anyone planning a wedding. Wedding rehearsals will require some advance planning to schedule times with the facility that will work for everyone involved. This is why it is a good idea to have the facility booked well in advance.
