Hiring a Wedding Planner For Your Big Day
There are plenty of wedding planners and organizers with years of experience to help you plan your big day, whether it is a beach wedding celebration or even a luxurious gathering. For a destination wedding, local event companies are strongly recommended to guide you with venue selections, accommodation bookings, meal plans and hotel transfers for guests.
Do your homework before narrowing down to a few professionals to shortlist from. Almost every professional organizer has a business website showcasing their work, so narrow down your list based on the various types of services they offer.
Have a good look at their portfolios and see whether their vision matches the ideas you have in mind. Many event companies have their services listed down, which will give you a clear idea of what they specialize in. Pictures and videos tell a thousand words, so look closely for similarities in the kind of work you want to explore.
From here, a good way forward would be to speak to your top three favorites. Discuss the services in detail and their limitations, whether they have worked at the venues you have selected, their availability for those dates, their fee structure and the cost on an average for the entire event. If the companies that you shortlist meet your expectations in terms of matching your budgets and overall vision, set up a meeting with each of them.
Before meeting them, it would be a good idea to prepare a list of images, clippings and ideas to share with the planner for something to work with. When you meet them, besides qualifying them for the standards of their work, you would also want to look at their personalities as you will have to work with this person for months.
Throw your ideas across to check whether they understand your vision and are receptive to your ideas. Having the right creative talent would ensure that your marriage celebration will not be mechanical and lack creativity.
After you have met with your shortlisted set of consultants, look for references or even their social networking pages on the internet. Social pages will give you better confidence on how they have handled clients in the past, managed budgets, their work ethics and management skills.
