Appointing a wedding planner is a huge investment, but it is also an absolute sanity saver. You might start the wedding planning process exhilarated about buying an outfit or going to your cake tasting, but the core details that make up the less-enjoyable parts of planning a wedding can truly bog you down. Having access to a professional wedding planner who can handle so many mundane jobs, such as checking if your catering service is available or making certain you rent the appropriate number of wine glasses, will transform a decent wedding into a fabulous one. While the basic jobs of a wedding planner are pretty well-known, how do you ensure you are getting the best return on your investment? Let’s find out how to get the most out of your wedding planner.
Know their strengths:
Prior to even appointing a wedding planner, learn a bit more regarding them & their professional background. Were they the head of a catering at a hotel, event manager at a premier venue, or are they a long-time planner with 10 years of experience & vendor contracts? They might be a wiz at styling tables after years with a rental firm or know everything there is to know about menus because they happen to work for a catering service. As soon as you find out their strengths & passions, you will have more knowledge of the ways they will be able to assist with your wedding that might be evident on paper.
Go beyond the basics:
Everybody has their own account of a wedding timeline & budget, but that does not mean it’ll suit your wedding plan. Request your planner to personalize the timeline to fit how much time you have and to make a monthly macro to-do list that is precise to your wedding. The same formula applies to your budget. Ask your wedding planner to assist you in personalizing your budget to best suit your priorities. Whether that means cutting back on decorations to put more on your dream band or squeezing in the rentals you have had your eyes on.
Let them be creative:
Most wedding planners are in this business because they are passionate about it! No doubt, their responsibility is to help implement your vision, but you might get totally blown away by the new creative ideas they can come up with if you offer them some flexibility. It makes them so happy when a bride wishes to implement creative ideas to take her special day to the next level. It's more than just pulling motivational images in a design meeting, it offers them an opportunity to truly lift the event higher than you could ever imagine.
