Working With A Wedding Planner

While it is your day, it often takes a whole team to assemble the perfect wedding. Many brides opt to hire a wedding planner in order to make sure even down to the smallest details, nothing is left unfinished. Because the key to any successful working relationship is forging ahead as a team, we've put together a few tips that will allow you to make the post of your wedding planner's expertise.

  • There's no I in team.

Most successful people will tell you, the best teams are all about balance. Sure, you may be the one who writes the checks, however, you also need a team that supports you. This is where your wedding planner comes in; s/he is there to serve as your biggest advocate, particularly if you're not around.
Determine your planning strengths, be honest with yourself about potential weaknesses, and consider leaving those tasks to the professionals. Your wedding planner can work with you in creating a list of tasks, and helping you determine where you want to be heavily involved.

  • Speak your mind.

This should go without saying, but honesty is the foundation of all strong relationships. Don't worry about holding back on your opinion, no matter how silly you may feel. You not only need to be able to express your priorities, you also need to be able to feel comfortable expressing your concerns. While it's unlikely your wedding planner can read your mind (if you find them, let us know!) they can remember that your sister needs a vegan option, while grandma requires gluten free. They key to making that happen? You can't be afraid to tell them.

  • Trust the expert.

From the dress, to the gown, to the ceremony, you want everything to be perfect. As difficult as it may be, it is in your best interest to trust your wedding planner. It's important to realize that not only is s/he there to be your advocate, it is also in their professional interest as well. More than that, a seasoned wedding/event planner has been involved in countless weddings. They've worked with a diverse number of personalities, styles, and budgets.
In the end, you need to trust your gut. Be sure that this is someone you can trust to pull off the entire event with success, even in the event that you were unable to be directly involved. After that, it's simply time to give them the space to put your plan in to action.
