How do I find the right wedding planner?

Are you searching for a wedding planner?

You’ve made the decision that you need the support, expertise and guidance from someone with a wealth of experience. Someone to help you with the most important day of your life so far. Yes?

But like this whole wedding planning malarkey you’re already feeling overwhelmed by the amazing & varied choice of experienced planners out there?

How do you find the right wedding planner? And ensure that they are the right one for you?


Discover 3 quick tips to assist you in your search for the perfect wedding planner:

ONE: How do you envisage their role?

Do you want the wedding planner to provide Full Wedding Planning.? Someone who’ll meticulously plan your big day from beginning to end.  Leaving no stone unturned?

Or perhaps your have already dipped your toes into the world of wedding planning. But now feel with some much to do you’d like some expert hands to take up the reins.

Or is your wedding now in sight and you want a wedding planner to ensure your big day runs smoothly?

Leaving you free to totally relax and enjoy the day surrounded by your family & friends. Safe in the knowledge that whatever is happening behind the scenes your chosen wedding planner will have it covered?

Take time to write down what you truly wish to gain from having a wedding planner.


TWO: Do a little social media stalking!

Use hashtags in your search such as: #ukweddingplanner #londonweddingplanner #destinationweddingplanner #marqueeweddingplanner…….and so on.

Check out their grid. Do you like what you see on their feed? Are the weddings they plan offering the look & feel for the style of wedding you are dreaming of?

It doesn’t have to be exactly the same vision that you have for your day. As I’ve said before, no two weddings are the same. As no two couples are the same.

You will however get a true feel for their style of weddings and work. Also check out their website for another great way to get a feel for them. How does their website make you feel?

THREE: Book a Consultation

Ultimately, and I’m a huge believer in this, when choosing a wedding planner, it will come down to personalities. A gut feeling you have about them.

And I’ll let you into a secret. The feeling is mutual!

You’ll know the right wedding planner for you just as us wedding planners know whether you will be the right couple for us.

It will come down to that all important connection.

You need to ensure that you feel 100% comfortable and confident about them as a person as well as a trusted & professional wedding planner.

If you’ve found these three tips helpful then why not check out my Top Questions to Ask a Wedding Planner, before you have that important consultation.

And most definitely before signing on the dotted line!

I’ve spent most of my life in the wedding & events industry. Helping couples in love to celebrate in style is something I adore and am hugely proud of being able to do.

At the very heart of my job is a love of people. A chance to connect with couples is one of my favourite parts. Being a wedding planner means being able to balance the detail-focused organisation and expert problem solving with the chance to have a good chat and a laugh with couples over a cuppa or a glass of fizz.
