Choosing the Right Wedding Planner for You
Planning a wedding is a big job and can be a bit overwhelming. One of the best ways to ensure that your big day goes as smoothly as possible is to hire a professional wedding planner. But with so many wedding planners out there, how do you choose the right one for you?
First, consider what type of wedding you and your partner are envisioning. Do you want a classic and formal wedding, or something more casual and unique? Do you need help with finding a venue and vendors, or just with the day-of timeline? Knowing your vision will help you narrow down the type of planner you need (here at Silver Fern Events we offer a variety of planning packages to suit your wedding day needs!)
Next, ask for referrals from friends and family who have recently been married. You can also ask your venue, photographer, or other wedding vendors for a recommendation. Not only will this help you find the right planner for your needs, but it will also give you an idea of their pricing and experience.
Once you've narrowed down your list of potential planners, it's important to meet with them in person. This is a great opportunity to get to know them, ask questions about their experience, and discuss your wedding vision. I love meeting up with the bride-to-be in person for a cup of coffee somewhere in Asheville after you've booked a discovery call with me! You should also make sure to ask for references and check out any online reviews.
Finally, make sure to find a planner that is within your budget. Wedding planners often have packages that include different levels of service and pricing. Be sure to discuss your budget and expectations ahead of time and make sure that you are comfortable with the fees. At Silver Fern Events we offer different planning packages for different budgets!
Choosing the right wedding planner can make all the difference on your big day. Take your time to find the perfect fit for you and your partner, and you'll be sure to have a wedding day that is as stress-free and beautiful as you ever dreamed.
