You are living your dream with your future spouse and hoping to have a blast on your marriage event. Well, for that you need a good wedding planner who can ensure your wedding day is a memorable event to cherish forever.
To get an ideal team of wedding planners is essential as it decides your day is the happiest one ever. If you are going to hire a wedding planner, you need to look for the following qualities that will make sure that you are dealing with the right person
A good wedding planner has got to be creative. From thinking about designs to fixing the greatest flaws, they just have to think outside the box. While everyone else may not be thinking straight when things go wrong, a wedding planner should fix issues without raising the slightest suspicion to their clients and guests. Giving your wedding planner some worst-case scenarios to fix should help you know if they are fit for the job.
A good wedding planner should be organized and have excellent time-management and multi-tasking skills. Wedding planners must be able to work on several different weddings at once, keeping the details of each separate to avoid confusion. She/he must stay physically organized as well, keeping track of important documents, paperwork, and contracts for each of the weddings she works on. Most of the time, wedding planners have several months to plan a wedding, but occasionally that time frame may be only a few weeks, and a good wedding planner must be able to work under pressure and on deadlines.
Good mediation skills
A great wedding planner will mediate issues that arise with your venue and vendors and come up with a win-win solution for everyone. She will also offer guidance and advice to help you deal with family dynamics that may need mediation while you are planning the wedding. Keep in mind that your planner is not a counselor but she can usually give ideas and recommendations that will help.
Wedding planners should have a passion for weddings and be knowledgeable in all of their aspects, from the engagement party to the honeymoon, and everything between. Many couples want budget weddings, so wedding planners should know how to get the best deals in their area and cost shortcuts that can save the couple money. The wedding planner should know a little about all the vendors in the area to able to match up couples with the vendors that best suit their needs. A good wedding planner also understands the faith and other traditions for weddings, such as Muslim, Christian, military etc.
More often than not, many couples don’t know the true cost of flowers, catering or wedding photography. The wedding planner is responsible for creating and managing their budget, as well as choosing wedding vendors to fit into their budget. It’s up to the planner to educate them on these costs and set realistic expectations.
