What to Expect When Hiring a Wedding Planner
A wedding planner is someone who is hired to organize weddings. Most wedding event planners are self-employed and often cater for other events such as corporate parties. A wedding event planner will initially meet with a client and work with them to organize the wedding they can afford.
The budget will be the first thing the planner will establish, so they know what their limitations are when it comes to the likes of flowers and hiring people like caterers and photographers. Once a budget has been established, the planner will then draw up a list of everything they need to purchase and do before the big day, setting deadlines on every item. Being organized and able to meet deadlines is very important for every wedding event planner. All the details such as the ring pillow to the wedding favors, hiring a band to parking are usually under the wedding planners purview.
During their years in the wedding planning business, they will build up a network of contacts, like musicians, photographers, florists, videographers etc. Using the same trustworthy vendors will mean they do not have to search for new suppliers for every wedding. Plus, by dealing with the same vendors, they will normally receive a discount which will increase their profit margin as well, in addition to passing some of the savings to their clients.
Good service providers are vital for wedding planners, due to the fact they oversee everything instead of doing each individual job required with a wedding. Some will even set up the tables and arrange the flowers. And most of them will attend the wedding to oversee any last minute details or emergencies.
