Wedding Tips by Gail King:

A wedding planner is above all a calm and organized professional. In the busy and sometimes frantic process of planning a wedding, this person is an outside eye who can provide helpful perspective in any situation. The wedding planner is also the master problem-solver. When it comes to the big day, this person is in charge of making sure that the bride, groom, wedding party, parents, officials and vendors are all in the right place at the right time. Any unexpected problems should be quickly and quietly resolved.
The benefits of hiring a wedding planner are that it can save you time and money. This is truest for large andelaborate ceremonies. A wedding planner will negotiate the best deals from wedding vendors and steer the couple in the right direction as they go through the planning process. A wedding planner can also save untold time by making all of the formal arrangements, handling the budget and ensuring that all contracts and schedules are taken care of in a professional and timely manner. This leaves the bride and groom free to enjoy their special day without any worries.
  • Start with a vision of what you want your dream wedding to be, how you want it to look and what are the images going through your mind.
  • Communicate this vision to the planner, without this communication, the planner will have difficulty interpreting your dream.
  • Discuss your budget frankly and openly with the planner.
  • You should expect the planner to get back to you with creative ideas on how to make the vision and the budget match up.
