Questions to ask a wedding planner before booking

Couple laughing Credit: want to find a wedding planner to help us create the perfect day. What questions should we ask before booking?

"Choosing a wedding planner can be a big decision, so you want to make sure you’re hiring the perfect supplier for you. Here are a few questions you should ask before booking:

"What is your style, or do you specialise in specific areas?

"How would we contact you and when? Is it email, a phone call or a video call?

"How often would we have a catch-up meeting to discuss the progress of the wedding?

"Have you worked at my venue before?

"Is your travel to our venue included in your price, and do we need to pay for your accommodation?

"How many hours will you be at the wedding?

"What happens if you can’t make it on the day? What is your backup plan? 

"Will you have an assistant on the day?

"Do you charge extra for after hours?

"How many weddings do you plan per year? Will there be another wedding you’re planning on the same day as mine?

"Do you have a portfolio of previous weddings?

"You might want to expand on these questions, but use them as a starting point to help you get a feel for their services."
