Questions About Events You Must Know the Answers To
Ring your top three or four picks and inquire about their availability, pricing and the cost of the average weddings they handle. If their answers match your budget and your own plans, arrange appointments with each of them. Preparing for the Initial Meeting Be sure to bring with you Internet printouts, magazines and other pictures or materials that can help you create a better picture of how you would like your wedding to turn out. During your meeting, ask them about events they’ve handled and observe their personalities. Do you think you can work with them for months? Tell them your ideas about your style and colors and take note of their reaction. Enthusiasm is a must. Talking to their Past Clients Don’t feel pressured to hire anybody on the spot. Take your time calling their references and ask them a few questions, such as: > How closely did they keep to your budget? > Can you email me pictures from your wedding? This is an effective way checking the planner’s general consistency and professionalism. Planners’ portfolios carry their best work, and, for sure, they’ll refer you to clients they know were pleased with their work, so do scan online for other real weddings they’ve done as well. > Was the wedding just as you wanted it to be? > Did they respond quickly to your phone calls, emails or SMS, and were they easy to work with? > What did your guests say about your wedding? > Were there any problems,and how did they take care of those? Sealing the Deal Spend time comparing prices, notes, impressions and formal proposals (planners should draft their overall vision for your wedding and the services they plan to offer in the form of a proposal, which would then be the basis for your contract). The moment you’ve found your planner, call them and tell them you are interested and waiting for a contract.
