Posted November 6, 2010 by in Wedding Ideas | No comments yet

After the memorable engagement dinner, reality takes hold and couples are instantaneously overwhelmed by how much work has to be completed to arrange their wedding. Trying to puzzle out where to get services and deal with their budget proves to be a really stressful task. Couples then realise that the worries begin to build as fast as the expense of the wedding. Some resort to getting help from friends and family while others get the expertise of a wedding planner.

In the past decades, wedding planners were considered an extravagance, which only the wealthy can afford. Nowadays, there are more and more couples hiring professionals to complete much if not all the work for them.

What are the benefits of getting a wedding coordinator?

Some discounts are only available to them and with their skills; you could evade costly mistakes in the process of transforming that dream wedding in a reality. Also, having a hectic lifestyle, couples may not have the time to match prices and search for the best deals. A wedding planner already has a list of vendors from where one can pick from.

Wedding planners won’t make the selections for you. They’re there to offer you an expert opinion and become your guide. Their knowledge and training makes sure that you’re making informed decisions. They’re the ones to supervise and arrange taking the weight of handling of logistics right from your hands.

How do you hire an expert?
Prepare before speaking with a coordinator. Prepare yourself to tell them when the target date is, the number of people you plan to invite plus some general ideas of how you would want it to turn out and what your budget is. On that first meeting, they will highlight a portfolio. Be sure to ask what their involvement was in those photos because those can very well be considered a testimony to the talent of the wedding photographer or florist.

You may also consider hiring someone who comes recommended and has been in the industry for a while. There are smart enterprisers who publicise themselves as wedding coordinators when in reality, they’re expertise is flower arrangement or catering, make sure to get someone who does ‘wedding planning’ as their main, full-time business.

Your wedding coordinator must be creative, can function under pressure, detail oriented and has good taste. You also want someone who is resourceful and can get the best within your budget. Most of all, like any relationship, the bond you form must be based upon trust, honesty and respect. With that, both you and your coordinator could make your wedding day a true dream come true.
