Deanna Melia tells us how to find the perfect wedding planner
Q – How can we find the perfect wedding planner?
"One of the best questions to ask is whether or not the supplier is specialised. Can they do any type of wedding? This is important because booking someone who is a jack of all trades means you may not get as much value for your money as you would with someone specialised. This is because specialised suppliers will have spent time learning and perfecting their niche. For example, if you’re having an indoor wedding close to home, then you don’t want to hire someone who focuses on destination weddings as they wouldn’t be able to provide you with the services you need.
"Moreover, ask to see their contract and their terms and conditions. Many planners don’t have much wriggle room when it comes to this, so you need to make sure it suits your needs. Each contract will be similar, but little things may be different depending on the supplier, such as what would happen if a late payment was to occur."
