Are you about to get married? Congratulations! Planning a wedding is not easy, but it doesn’t have to be stressful either. In this article, we will go over some of the most common mistakes that couples make when choosing their wedding planner and what you can do to avoid them.
Choosing the Right Wedding Planner
- Do not get a wedding planner that is too expensive. Make sure to do your research before committing, and always ask for cost estimates before accepting someone’s services. Also, keep in mind the value of what you are paying for. If you find yourself feeling like they’re charging way more money than their service warrants, then it might be time to look elsewhere.
- We recommend that you do not get a wedding planner who charges too much or is way less expensive than most planners in your area. Make sure to ask for cost estimates before accepting someone’s services and look into the value of what you are paying for.
- Don’t hire a wedding planner that doesn’t do anything special for you. Some planners offer free consultations and it is usually the best way to find out what they can offer your big day and how much it will cost in total. It may feel like hiring someone else would be more expensive, but don’t forget about the money you will be saving in the long run.
- Did you know that many planners charge an hourly rate as opposed to a flat fee? This means if your event goes longer than expected, there’s no way for you to save money on the cost of your wedding. You should make sure to clarify exactly how much you will be paying for every hour of their services before signing any contracts.
- Another thing that many couples don’t consider is the idea that wedding planners are not just there to plan your event, but also execute it! This means they coordinate with other vendors and have a lot on their plate at one time. If you want to make sure that your planner is not overworked and can complete the job in a timely manner, then it’s important for you to consider their other responsibilities. You should ask them how many weddings they already have going on at once before deciding if they are capable of planning yours as well.
- There are so many things involved with planning a wedding, so it’s important for you to be selective when deciding which planner will help make your event run smoothly. If you are not careful with who you choose, then there is no telling how chaotic the process could become!
So please take these tips into consideration before hiring someone to handle all of your wedding needs.
