Chances are your wedding will be the largest event you organise. From the catering, decorations and your custom wedding dress there is so much to consider and plan. To help save you some stress, it can be a fabulous idea to get some help from a wedding planner! A wedding planner will ensure all the behind the scenes of your wedding ceremony and reception run smoothly, leaving you to enjoy your special day.
So, how do you choose the right wedding planner for you? It’s important to note that some Brisbane venues require you to have your own wedding planner, however some wedding venues come with their own wedding planners. If being able to choose your own wedding planner is important to you, make sure you discuss this with your prospective venue before you pay a deposit or sign any contracts.
Do your research
It’s so important to do your research, the same way you would search to find the perfect atelier to create your custom wedding dress, you should research a range of wedding planners. You’ll find that some offer minimal services, where as others will take care of everything from sourcing venues and vendors to offering co-ordination services on the day.
Meet with them first
Your wedding planner will be running your entire day, so it’s important to discover if you are on the same page when it comes to the perfect floral arrangement and how the schedule should run. When you meet with your wedding planner have a list of questions prepared to ensure you don’t forget anything important.
Be clear with what you need from them.
There will be certain things you’re happy to organise, like your custom wedding dress appointments, but then there will be things you want your wedding planner to handle. An experienced wedding planner should have a handle on this, but it’s always good to confirm your roles for your own peace of mind.
