Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Wedding planning is a tedious job, whether the event is small or large. Some brides will take on wedding planning like a full-time job, which can lead to frustration and burnout. Some brides, however, will invest their money in a wedding planner. The majority of brides that hire a wedding planner say that the investment was a wise decision. On May 21, 2013, AL.com released their top tips for working with a wedding planner, and Do the Bride a Favor is releasing their top five tips for finding a wedding planner.
1. Budget First
Before a bride decides on a wedding planner, decide on a budget, and make the figure abundantly clear to the wedding planner. Wedding planners usually have inside connections in the wedding industry, and can make the most of the bride’s budget, as long as they know what it is!
2. Get References
Don’t just get phone numbers from prospective wedding planners and assume everything was okay. Call these clients and follow up with them. Also, check their record on websites such as the Better Business Bureau, Yelp, and local review websites.
3. Insure Them
40% of wedding insurance claims stem from problems with a wedding planner. If the bride decides to hire a wedding planner, and their references check out, purchase wedding insurance to protect the investment.
4. Have Clear Ideas
Wedding planners can plan every detail of a wedding, but without a clear concept, the bride may be disappointed. Always communicate theme ideas to the wedding planner. If the bride is having a themed wedding, be sure to tell the planner if the bride expects custom wedding candy or cute figurines as favors, for example.
5. Hire the Best
Take a look at the budget, and decide on what the bride can realistically afford to pay a wedding planner. Once the bride has a concrete number, contact as many wedding planners as possible. Some planners will offer special deals and others may not.
Do the Bride a Favor gives their top five tips for finding a wedding planner, including being clear from the start and agreeing on a budget.
