Wedding is one thing that a person dreams about since childhood. You would have thought at least thousand times about the wedding chateau in France. The venue, decoration, music, food and dress - everything you have already dreamt. However, your only worry would be to know how to make it perfect, magical and most memorable event.

You would like to take care of all things from vendors to decorators to caterers. However, this is not feasible, especially if you and your partner are running short of time. In this situation, wedding planners come to your rescue. They take your entire burden and arrange the wedding just the way you wanted.

You should be really careful about hiring your wedding planner. You want the most special day of your life to be flawless, so it is better to follow certain steps before hiring.

Do your homework

It is suggested to go through all the magazines, newspaper and advertisements of wedding planners. Check on the web about different wedding planners and the services they offer. Have an idea about their fees.

Also, have information about the number of weddings they planned their reviews, photos of the wedding, if possible and the kind of weddings they organize. You should know about their awards and membership in professional associations.

Contact the shortlisted ones

Once you examine all the wedding planners, shortlist three or four of them. Choose them according to the type of weddings they plan and the kind of wedding you want. Then contact each of them. Ask them for details about the services they provide, the fees they charge, criteria of fees, sites with which they have worked and availability of dates. If all the things settle down and it fits into your budget then select the appropriate one and fix it.

Call references

Don’t be hesitant in contacting the references of your wedding planner. It is good to contact and ask them about your queries. You can ask for their reviews, the style of wedding, for photographs of wedding, the arrangements they did, the vendors they fixed, their speed and about their coordination. After getting complete satisfaction, you will be tension free and would be able to rely on your wedding planners.

Prepare for the first meeting

The first meeting with your wedding planners is very important. Meet them along with your partner and clearly tell them about your needs. You should be crystal clear about all the things and the way you want. Particularly about the venue, decoration, floor plan and catering service. Decide together keeping in mind their recommendations about all these things.

Decide about the venue, the kind of decoration, the food menu and floor plan. If it is possible, have their suggestions regarding dress and jewellery because they have a better idea about all such things. Finally, come with the budget. You should be able to convey your thoughts to the planners, so that there is cohesion in thinking.

Make the deal final

After doing all the above-mentioned things, if you feel you have chosen the right wedding planner then go ahead by signing the contract. Fill the necessary forms and sign the contract. Deposit the advance money and make the things final. The sooner you make the decision, better it is. It will save your money and give ample amount of time to review each thing nicely.

Hiring the right wedding planner might put some extra load on your pocket, but it definitely takes away all the worrying. It is a step, which leads to your perfect dream wedding.
