Below is a list of important steps to consider before hiring a wedding or an event planner. After planning weddings and special events since my company was started in 2003, I believe that these steps are vital to having a great experience with your event planner.
A few years ago, I worked on a high-profile event with one of the most well-respected and sought after wedding planners in Los Angeles. She told me that it is important that both the planner and client interview each other to see if they are a fit. She said that she will do anything for her clients once she is hired (I concur), however, having the wrong connection can make everyone involved miserable. Our company is constantly evolving and we have made it our policy that we Zoom first with potential clients first before pursuing a relationship and that includes sending a proposal of our services.
The most important thing to remember is that you communicate with your planner and let them know if something needs to be fine-tuned. Establish how often you want to talk per week to go over details.
Remember, open communication is essential for a great working relationship.
