Are you thinking of hiring a wedding planner?

If you have, you’re not alone as many couples quickly find out there’s a lot involved in pulling off the perfect day. Wedding planners are experts in the field, and they are there to provide support in bringing your dream wedding to life (within reason and budget, of course). Yet, when it comes to your big day, finding someone you feel comfortable with is important. That’s why we’ve put together a list of qualities to look for in a wedding expert.

Good Listener

Communication will be very important between you and the wedding planner to make your day just right. A big part of a planner’s role is to listen. You want an individual who will hear your ideas and concerns and keep these things at the forefront of their mind as they start making arrangements.

Planning a wedding is stressful and does involve a lot of details – even with a planner to help you. As you’re going through the details, making decisions, and experiencing the emotional roller coaster of the entire wedding planning process, you want to hire an expert who is compassionate to what you’re going through. They should be understanding and willing to offer solutions to reduce your stress.

Problem Solver

When things go awry with your wedding details you want a wedding planner who can solve the issue. Whether it’s a delivery issue with the flowers, a problem at the venue, or seating arrangement issues with difficult family members, a skilled wedding planner knows how to analyze the problem and come up with several solutions without causing any additional stress to you.

Good Vibes

You can find someone with years of experience, tons of connections, and a ton of positive reviews, but if you don’t mesh well with their personality, it can go downhill fast. As you look for the right wedding planner to hire, pay attention to how you and your fiance feel when you’re with them. Do they make you feel comfortable? Are they laid-back or strict in their approaches and does that work for you?

Weddings may look beautiful once it’s all done, but it takes days, weeks, and even years of hard work, preparations, problem-solving, and planning to bring it to fruition. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by planning your wedding or you’d just like an extra hand, consider the above qualities and start looking for a wedding planner today.
