Once you have become engaged, the planning starts – from date to venue, who to have in the wedding, colors, food, flowers, etc…   Sounds overwhelming, doesn’t it?   Many of you already know how overwhelming it is!

One thing that can help you with this process is hiring a wedding planner.   You want to hire someone who understands you, is efficient and helpful, comes with good references and has experience.   Here are some things to think about when hiring a wedding planner.

  •  Interview several planners before making a decision
  • Read over their contract to make sure that what they say they will provide is actually services they are contracted  for
  • Consider your budget – cheaper is not always better but high priced event planners may not always be good as well
  • Make sure they are available when you need them and that you are available to them as well
