Engagement season is in full swing. You said "yes" and now begin to think about everything that will be happening in the coming months. For some, this is very overwhelming and make a decision to hire a wedding planner/coordinator. When you make this decision you should research local planners and meet with them to make sure that you both click. This is a very important part of the process and ensures that you have hired the right person for this very important day.
There are four main questions you should have in your mind when you meet with a planner for the first time:
1. Do they offer a free consultation to meet with them?
2. Do they offer a questionnaire prior to your meeting, so they can get some background and a little bit more about your wants and desires prior to meeting?
3. When you met how did the planner make you feel? Did he/she really listen and pay attention to your wants and desires?
4. Do they offer different levels of planning or coordination? Examples, Full Planning, Partial Planning or Day-of-Coordination
This is a big decision and a planner will become a close partner that you will work with from the day you said "Yes" until the day you say "I Do". Make sure that you feel comfortable and able to be open about all of your dreams and desires on your big day. Don't feel like you are unable to voice what you do not want or work with someone that does not listen to you and continues to drive you in another direction.
