Nice to meet you, how can I not wreck your wedding?!
Thanks to Masterpiece Weddings There are so many things to consider when hiring your vendors, but let's talk about what to look for in your wedding planner. There gazillions of questionnaires online for you to review, download and bring with you to your initial consultations when you interview your potential wedding planner.
But how about some things that may not be on the questionnaires?
What are you going to wear on my wedding day?
* We wear formal attire, not black tie (unless you request it) but formal, cocktail attire. We don't wear name tags. We want to blend in at your wedding, not stand out like a sore thumb.
How many weddings will you have on my wedding day?
* I will personally only have one. And I'll have a team with me, so we can be in 3 places at the same time.
Will you drink at my wedding?
* Um, no! No professional. You won't see us eat at your wedding (although we will, in shifts), we are there for you and to make sure you are getting what you paid for from all of your vendors and means we are on the clock the whole night. (not to say, when you get back from your honeymoon we shouldn't all go to Dragonfly and grab a cocktail)
And when you are meeting with your vendors be upfront with them, ask the hard questions, expect answers.
