A Wedding Planner is more than just a planner; she ultimately is a designer, budget manager, go-between, logistics manager, sometimes "legal" counsel and a lot of time becomes a great friend. Finding the right one can be tricky but with simple steps you can find the right person to help you plan the wedding of your Pinterest Board dreams.
Step 1) Decide if you really need one. The answer to this question is usually yes! Sometimes though, if you truly have the time to coordinate and you are not willing to give up control, then a planner might not be the right fit.
Step 2) Determine your budget for the coordinator. Most coordinators offer day of packages that can be more affordable than the full coordination. Full coordination is great for the busy brides and grooms who really don't have the time to plan it all.
Step 3) Do you research. Spend time looking at websites and calling for references. Make sure they are the right fit for you. Not all planners are created equally. Find a planner that you will gel with.
Step 4) Give them all the information. Give them the tools to help bring your vision to reality.
