Wedding Wednesdays: What to Ask a Potential Wedding Planner

As y'all know, I love to plan and coordinate and "do the pretty" for other people's events. When it came time to start planning our wedding, however, I decided that my fiancĂ©, my parents, and I couldn't do it all ourselves, so we hired an amazing wedding designer and planner. 

I cannot tell you how obsessed I am with our planner! Anna Richardson of Lucia Paul Design is so fantastic! She is organized, prompt, friendly, and outrageously creative. We've only just begun the planning process, but she gets our vision and that's so exciting!

On that note, I wanted to give you some pointers for picking a potential wedding planner. Whether you use a planner for the entire process or just for the month of the wedding, you should make sure you're picking a person who will be the right fit for you and your event. 

The following is a list of questions to ask of any potential wedding planner/designer: 

  • What experience do you have and how long have you been in the event planning industry?
  • How many events have you coordinated and/or styled that are similar to the one I am planning?
  • Do you have adequate experience with large gatherings or do you only specialize in smaller events?
  • Can you provide recommendations or testimonials from past clients?
  • Do you have a preferred list of venues and vendors that you have worked closely with in the past?
  • What services are included in your fee? Are there any hidden costs that I should expect?
I hope this list helps you find someone who can take all of your ideas and turn them into the event of your dreams!
