Your wedding planner is easily one of the most important vendors on your big day. They will be responsible for managing other vendors. You must ensure your planner has adequate experience in dealing with vendors and also understands what the perfect wedding means to you. Therefore, we have put together five questions you should ask before picking a wedding planner.

Ask About Their Experience

This is literally the first question we advise couples to ask their planners.  This is so you can know if they can handle your guests and if they can remain within your budget. Asking this question will help find out how experienced they are. Some planners can’t do much outside the books and don’t have the capacity for a large wedding.

Ask About Their Connections

Every wedding planner has a list of preferred vendors that they work with. They have a good relationship with these vendors and can always manage issues if it seems things aren’t going as planned. The good side of this is that they can help you get great deals.

Ask About Their Management Skills

Every couple has a budget for their wedding, and you should hire a wedding planner that will not overshoot your budget. He or she should have good negotiating skills, know how to cut unnecessary costs, and be money-savvy so that your budget can go the extra mile in achieving your dream wedding.

Ask How Well They Can Manage an Emergency

Your wedding planner should have a backup plan when things don’t go as planned. What will they do when the caterer doesn’t show up or the DJ is having a hard time getting to the venue? If yours isn’t the first event they have catered to, they’ll be able to tell you precautions they took in similar situations in the past.

Ask for Their Fee

You’ll want to talk about the charges before looking at their contract books, of course. If they don’t have a website where you can look this up, ask them at the beginning of the meeting. You should review their rates too and ascertain it fits into your budget before getting into the details of your wedding.
