What to Look for when Picking out a Wedding Planner

by Candice Pereira Creative Head & Co-Founder
The popularity of wedding planners is catapulting thanks to the realization by even budget conscious couples that hiring one actually lead to saving your bucks. Till recent years couples would hardly resort to a wedding planner with notions of expenses going beyond their budget. However, the reality lies in the fact that wedding planners know exactly how to squeeze in the maximum and the best that you desire within your budget, picking out the best venues and striking the best deals with vendors and caterers. So if you are in search of a wedding planner in Goa or elsewhere here are a few things to look out for.

Decide on Your Needs: First things first- you need to decide on exactly what your needs are and what are the services you would want your wedding planner to perform. Do you want a wedding planner who will offer you full services and cater to every meticulous detailing without you having to look into anything? Or are you looking for someone who would help you out in choosing the right venues and caterers only?  You may well want to take care of everything but leave the responsibility of styling your wedding such as the décor and other accessories on the wedding planner. Once you are clear about your requirements fix a consultation appointment with a handful few wedding planners and discuss it with them.

Things to Discuss: When your wedding planner has agreed to a free consultation meeting discuss about your requirements, your approximate budget, the number of guests that are to be invited, the venues you would like to target and of course your own vision of an ideal wedding.

Questions to Ask:
When interviewing wedding planners be sure to ask questions as to the number of years they have been into this field and take a look at their past portfolio. Ask about their specialties and services they offer such as coordination, décor and design, a la carte planning or full service wedding planning. Be sure that the wedding planner in Goa is available on the day of your wedding. Most reputed wedding planners would ensure taking only one wedding a day to assure complete attention given to each project they undertake. Even if they have mastered the art of handling two or three couples at a time you should ensure there is no compromise on the quality of service.

Post Interview: After your interview with each wedding planner is over introspect on how the company representatives made you feel. Do you think he or she would be able to work out the best deals within the budget you proposed? Did you feel a sort of matching personalities with the wedding planner? These questions are extremely important given the fact that you need to be absolutely comfortable and strike the right chord with your wedding planner since it is a major day for you and your fiancé and you would want everything to go the right way.

Making The Final Decision-
If you have two or three wedding planners with whom you have more or less been satisfied make the final decision of hiring one who necessarily does not proffer you too low cost but a fairly affordable and reasonable one in tune with your budget. A planner who is creative with his or her ideas and offering you quality service without bringing in vendors just to grab some extra commissions can be the ideal wedding planner for your big day.
