Questions Every Bride Must Ask Her Wedding

December 27, 2014

You may think that hiring a wedding planner is not that difficult. However, it’s easier said than done. A good wedding planner can make your big day the most memorable day of your life, while the wrong one can totally ruin it. Therefore, it’s important to choose wisely. Do your homework; research and meet planners to get an idea how they work. To make sure you pick the right organizer, do ask the organizer these following questions:

1. How many weddings have you arranged previously? What is your experience?

Most reputable companies have work portfolios so they can show you the exact details; client testimonials, pictures, etc. Ask them for it, if they don’t, then there is definitely something dodgy here. An experienced organizer is what you are looking for. A seasoned planner knows the do’s and don’ts of a well organized wedding.

2. What services can you offer?

Ask the organizer for the services he or she can offer you, in detail. A reputable planner will provide you with a proposal in black and white. This should give you an idea whether you want to go further or go for another company.

3. Do you have any specific terms and conditions or hidden charges?

A reputable wedding organizer should be able to give you a list of terms and conditions applicable upon taking their services. This includes cancellation charges, extra or hidden charges, etc.

4. How long do you think it will take to plan the wedding?

Depending on the date of your big day, the planner will give you details about how long will the preparations take. Ask for a time line break up to make sure you know which page you’re on.

5. Can you plan a wedding for me in my budget?

A good organizer will not beat about the bush. If he or she can do it in the specified budget, he or she will, else will politely decline. Budgets and costs are important to discuss so you’re not in for shocks or surprises.

6. Do you charge for travel in case if I have a destination wedding?

This is an important question to ask. You don’t want to be in for a shock when you see the total bill. A reputable event planner should be able to give you an honest reply about it and save you from financial anxiety later.

With your wedding day not too far off in the future, are you feeling all stressed out worrying about things being ready for the big day? Do you have unresolved issues in your ‘Wedding Plans’ folder? Are you concerned you can’t afford an event planner? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to take action before its too late. For many brides, a wedding planner is the only way to go!

Your first step will be to explain what you want to achieve to your wedding coordinator and they will take it from there. All of the events and tasks will be detailed and scheduled so that your wedding will all come together as planned. Don’t get me wrong, there will be moments when minor glitches will pop up, but an experienced wedding planner can handle these easily. For just a moderate fee, a professional wedding organizer will save you from the sleepless nights and constant worry.

Preparation Is The Key

Preparing for each event and task will involve a logical process with each item carried out in a specific order. The planner will then guide you through the proper sequence of events. This allows you to stop worrying about your wedding plans ‘going to pieces’, with the knowledge and confidence that your wedding planner has gone through the same preparatory process dozens, if not hundreds of times before. And don’t forget that there are many issues that the wedding planner can assist you with, but most importantly, they will put order into the handling of your wedding event and establish a firm timeline to be followed.

Saving On Your Wedding Expenses

Your planner will help you determine the overall cost of your wedding and reception. What you will find is that your wedding budget will go a lot further and be more realistic when you know exactly how much you are going to pay for each service. The bonus here is that your planner can generally negotiate better prices on your behalf, allowing you to choose more upscale options or to apply the savings toward the honeymoon.

After making a list of required services and discussing it with your wedding planner, you will have a good idea of the investment that will be required and the timing of the various payments. You will need to discuss the reception menu with the caterer and don’t forget to include any special foods or diets that may be required. Planning the wedding professionally means you will get the best quality for the best price, without the hassle and inconveniences of trying to deal with the various vendors yourself.

So, if you are in the planning stages for your special wedding day, be sure to consider hiring a wedding planner. A professional planner can relieve you of the responsibilities, and especially the stress, of doing it all yourself.
