This is where a Wedding Planner steps in to save the day (hooray!) and you’ll count your lucky stars that it was the best decision you ever made. You can thank us later with chocolate 😀

Here are our top tips on what to look for in a Wedding Planner:


Find someone who is friendly, professional, and relatable. It’s easier to chat with someone who gets you. You’ll be working with this person anywhere from 6 to 12 months in the lead up to your big day so it’s best to make it a fun experience along the way!

Style & Trends

Every Wedding Planner should be on top of new and emerging trends. Whether it be an exquisite tablescape or a unique color palette, ask your planner what’s on trend and if they have any ideas up their sleeves. Wedding Planners are eagerly waiting for brides to ask them about new styles so they can let their creativity can run wild!


One of the first questions a Wedding Planner will ask is if you’ve started to think about your wedding budget. The role of a Wedding Planner is to act as bookkeeper and make sure everything stays on track. It is important to let your planner to guide you in selecting the centerpieces, florals, etc. that fit your look and style without breaking the bank.

In the world of events, the unknown will happen. Ear muffs! Wedding Planners are well aware and have been through it all. If anything happens not according to plan, your Wedding Planner will discreetly handle the situation with your guests none the wiser.
