5 Questions To Ask Your Wedding Planner

By  | 

Many may regard wedding planners as a luxury, others as an absolute necessity to ensure the organisation of the big day goes to plan.

If you’re choosing to use a wedding planner you need to decide what level of service you want from them; is it just help with the logistics at the venue or full cover from choosing the invitations to booking the honeymoon.

We’ve come up with some questions to ask when you’re choosing a wedding planner.

Are you available on my wedding day?

Wedding planners are a popular addition and can be booked up months in advance. Establishing their availability for your planned date will save you time and disappointment.

How much do you charge for your service? 

When you’re working to a budget, you want to avoid any surprise costs further down the line so establish the wedding planner’s fees at the start and what you get for them. Also ask if they accept staged payments or offer a payment plan before you part with a lump sum.

What services do you offer?

If you’re looking for specific requirements of your wedding planner make sure to find out what it is exactly that they provide and if you agree to hire them, ensure you have what you agree documented in writing so you’re both clear.

How many weddings have you planned?

Experience counts for a lot and putting your perfect day into capable hands to ensure everything is highly organised and that preparations are taken care off means less stress for you.

Can you recommend suppliers who can work with my budget?

It’s very important to find a wedding planner who can work within your budget and that they have good relationships with suppliers who can service your requirements affordably.

Pay attention to what questions the wedding planner asks you in your initial meeting, they should be finding out exactly what your ideal day looks like to understand what you want.
