Hiring a Wedding Planner {Part 3}

After you've chosen some wedding coordinators based on their websites, its time to submit an inquiry to them. This is probably the simplest task out of hiring a wedding planner but I'd like you to spend a moment writing a thoughtful note instead of just "hi, here's our date, whats your price" ...while obviously you want to hire someone who works with your budget, hiring a wedding planner is much more than the price you pay them. You are hiring someone for their expertise, experience, the value they bring to your wedding and above all, the fit. If you don't have a good rapport with them, you won't enjoy their services even if the price is right. So please, don't price shop through submission forms.

Submit an inquiry looking to see if firstly, they are available on your wedding date and secondly, to get a list of the services / packages that they offer. Before you even meet, you want to make sure that what they offer is what you need. If the stars align and the planner is available on your date and what they offer suits your wedding, set up a consultation.

Next week: how to prepare for your consultation and what to expect. You can check out Parts I and II here.
