Hiring a Wedding Planner (Three Steps to Follow)
I would like to congratulate you on completing your Wedding Budget (Yay!!), I truly hope that you found the Worrell Events Wedding Budget Worksheet helpful during the process (If you have not received our Wedding Budget Work Sheet, please go to http://www.worrellevents.com/get-your-free-budget-worksheet/ ) Now that you have an established budget, your next step will be to hire a Wedding Planner. Why you ask? This is to ensure that you stay on track with your Wedding Budget along with receiving the much needed support during the planning process of one of the most important days of your life.
When you select your Wedding Planner, make sure that you base your decision on your budget, planning needs, and customer service. The first step is to take a look at the amount that you allocated for Wedding Planning services and that’s how you begin your search, start with Wedding Planners that are in your price range (keep in mind you are paying for expertise and experience). You may have to adjust your budget, to ensure that you receive the exemplary service you deserve for you Special Day. Do your research, whether it be by searching the internet, word of mouth, or attending a bridal show.
The second step in narrowing the process is determining what services that you want for your Special Day. Wedding Planner service offerings vary from Full Service Wedding Planning to Day of Coordination; inquire to determine if your Wedding Planner of Choice offers the services you are looking for. Please have a clear understanding of what services are included in your package of choice (Remember there is a difference between Planning, Coordinating, and Design/Décor, we will go deeper in our next blog regarding the differences).
The third and final, which I feel is the most important step is customer service. How did you feel after the initial meeting or phone consultation? Remember, you are hiring someone to be at your side to ensure that your day is flawlessly executed, so you can enjoy your day stress free. Therefore; you want to ensure that your Wedding Planner of Choice is someone that you feel comfortable to bring your vision of Special Day to life.
