Choosing a Wedding Planner

Choosing a Wedding Planner


He asked and you said yes! While the first flushes of joy are still tingling through your veins, you begin to plan your special day – visiting wedding websites, browsing through countless magazines, making endless lists of possible venues, food, guests… until you can’t think straight anymore. Now might be the time to think about hiring a professional wedding planner to handle it all.


Hiring a wedding planner could be the answer to enjoying a stress-free wedding day as they take care of your every need, from arranging the venue and flowers to making sure everything runs smoothly. There are many levels of involvement when it comes to your wedding day and choosing a wedding planner can depend on how much of a role you want them to play. You can choose to go with a full-service wedding planner, who will arrange every detail from start to finish; you could just opt to have assistance with the wedding day management of the venue and vendors while you do the rest; or you can decide on a wedding day coordinator, who will pull it all together just before the wedding.


While hiring a professional wedding planner might seem like an unnecessary additional cost, in the long run it is likely to end up saving you money, and will also allow you to enjoy a stress-free wedding day, which is invaluable! From organising the wedding venue, deciding on décor and flower arrangements, choosing wedding stationery and guest gifts and coordinating the big day to run smoothly and efficiently, a wedding planner will allow you to concentrate on enjoying what undoubtedly will be one of the best days of your life.


Questions to ask your wedding planner:
1. Availability – are you available on the date of my wedding?
2. The cost of the average wedding you plan and your fee structure.
3. What services do you offer on the day? Full service event design and planning / day of co-ordination / a la carte planning etc?
4. Do you have any other weddings planned on the same day?
5. Do you handle professional services, contracts and payment processing?
