3 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Wedding Planner

Are you looking to hire a wedding planner? Whether you are in the beginning stages of looking for a planner or have found the one you love, below are three questions you will want to ask them. Hiring a wedding planner is one of the best ways to make sure you stay on track throughout the planning process. By asking these questions ahead of time, you will learn more about who the planner is, and you will be able to set realistic expectations about the planning process. 

What is their favorite part about planning a wedding? 

This question will provide you with a deeper understanding of what wedding planning means to the planner and their team. There will be a connection in sharing a story, and you will learn not just what it is about weddings that they love, but why they love to plan weddings. This information will be an indicator for you as you choose your planner. 

How do they communicate? 

Communication is key! If you and your planner are not on the same page, information is likely to be missed. Being upfront and knowing how they share information and the best ways to receive it is crucial for a successful planning process. This will help set realistic expectations of how you both communicate and help streamline the planning process. 

Are they licensed and insured? 

When working with a wedding company, you might ask about previous experience, as well as what packages they offer. While both of these questions are highly recommended, before you go signing on the dotted line, make sure to confirm the planner is both licensed and insured. By asking this question when you interview planners, you are doing your due diligence in making sure that they are licensed and insured. 

More often than not, you seek out a planner to help with the logistics and details of the day. In looking to find the one who will help you plan your dream day, information on who they are and why they participate in planning special events such as weddings are pieces of information you won’t want to miss! Whomever you choose, asking the questions above will help you be comfortable and confident in your planner’s abilities.
