Thankfully Nicole Squared Events recently came to the rescue for Kellen and Chris when they were mismatched with the wrong planner. From one bride to another, listen to Kellen's advice on finding the perfect planner.
- Ask for references. Don’t stop there. Contact them! Schedule consultations with your top three planners. Consider this their interview for the best job of their lives; planning YOUR wedding. Give yourself time to speak with a few coordinators and ask as many questions as possible. There is no such thing as a stupid question, even in the wedding world. A great wedding planner should be able to answer all your questions and leave you with full confidence in their level of service.
- Ask them what kind of communication to expect. This is very important. If you are like me and want to know everything that is going on, you are going to want an open communication with your planner. Knowing your planner can always be reached weather its vis phone, text, email or even social media is key to ensure a stress free experience.
- Do not pick someone solely because a friend or family members recommend them. Everyone doesn’t have the same taste. I’m sure you and your best friends have a friend outside of your circle that she may or may not connect with; same goes for wedding planners. Connection is key. He or she must see your vision completely and understand fully what you are expecting from their services. You want the best planner for YOU not for show. – Trust a glowing positive or negative review.
- Reviews are very important. With social media these day, no one is sugar coating their experiences. READ READ READ reviews.
