4 tips for choosing a Wedding Planner
In recent years, the figure of the wedding planner is increasingly present when organizing a wedding. We wonder for a long time whether it is indispensable, unfortunately many often confuse the real role of the wedding planner.
WHAT IS A WEDDING PLANNER
The word “planner” literally means: planner.
The wedding planner is the person who takes care of the wedding logistics.
During the organizational phase it is the one who helps the spouses in the selection and suggests the best suppliers in compliance with a pre-established budget.
She listens to their needs and tastes, makes appointments and keeps track of deadlines. Creates graphic wedding design projects to allow the bride and groom to imagine what their big day will be like.
She plans, organizes and manages all events, including unforeseen events, during a wedding. You supervise the work of the suppliers, draw up a fundamental timeline for the success of the event.
He is the artistic director of the event.
WHY CHOOSE A WEDDING PLANNER
4 tips that will be useful for you to choose your wedding planner:
- CHOOSE AN EXPERIENCED WEDDING PLANNER. Look for reviews other spouses have left about her work.
- AVOID IMPROVISED WEDDING PLANNERS: you may find a wedding planner who at very low prices is willing to organize the entire event, or an aspiring wedding planner friend, willing to commit her time for free.
IT’S A BAD IDEA!
In this sector, experience is essential, especially in dealing with unexpected events.
- DON’T BE SCARED BY THE PRICES
The job of a wedding planner is very demanding, non-professionals may not know it. It takes time, a lot of time, travel, and a huge amount of organization. It is not a job that ends in a day, in some cases it can take several months, if not a whole year. This is why a very low cachet could be a wake-up call. Remember that saving is never earning.
- CHOOSE A PERSON AFFILIATED TO YOU
From the moment of his engagement until the day of your wedding, you will spend a lot of time together, you will share moments, choices and emotions, which is why you have to choose a person with whom you are in tune.
The wedding of Simona & Andrea in La Chiusa di Chietri
About 8 years ago, I met Simona and Andrea when we took photos of their first daughter Vanessa.
Since that day I have photographed their family on many occasions.
Until their wedding.
Simona writes me a message from Luxembourg to ask me on which days I was available. I was their first choice.
Federica and I told about their wedding at the Chiusa di Chietri, surrounded by their three children and their families.
So sure of their choice, they entrusted us with important decisions on that day affected by the rain, such as the choice of the location of the ritual as they were forced to give up the outdoor location overlooking the trulli.
It would have been the ideal opportunity for a wedding planner to predict, support, sustain and reschedule that day. Despite this, the love surrounding Andrea and Simona was so much that the rain took a back seat.
