5 Key Takeaways on the Road to Dominating Planners
Call your top three or four picks and ask them about their pricing, availability, and the average cost of the weddings they plan. If their answers suit your budget as well as your vision, set up a meeting with each of them. Getting Ready for the Initial Meeting Make sure to bring magazine tear outs, Internet printouts and other pictures or materials that help you create a clearer picture of what you want at your wedding. During your first meeting, ask them about the weddings and perhaps other events they’ve done, and try to observe their personalities. Think you can work with them harmoniously? Tell them about your favorite colors or flowers and pay attention to they respond. Enthusiasm is a must. Talking to their Past Clients Don’t feel pressured to hire anybody on the spot. Spend time to call their past clients and ask them the following questions: > How closely did they keep to your budget? > Can you send me a few photos from your wedding? (This is a good way to see the planner’s overall consistency and professionalism. Planners’ portfolios are stuffed with their best work, and, certainly, they’ll refer you to couples they know were satisfied with their work, so look online for other real weddings they’ve handled as well. > Was the wedding just as you wanted it to be? > Did they respond quickly to your phone calls, emails or SMS, and were they easy to work with? > What did your guests say about your wedding? > Were there are any hitches and how were they taken care of? Sealing the Deal Spend time to compare impressions, notes, prices and formal proposals (planners should present their overall vision for your wedding, along with their intended services, through a written proposal which then serves as the basis for your contract). As soon as you’ve found the right planner, give them a call and express your desire to hire them.
