Planning a wedding is one of the most tedious tasks that a couple can face. To be more accurate, it is one of the most tedious tasks a bride can face. Most of us know that the groom usually just wants to know how much things cost and where to meet on the wedding day. While a good groom is always there to support his bride, sometimes it is better to let him sit back and relax.
As the bride, you should do some relaxing too. That is where your wedding planner steps in. Wedding planners can assist with all your planning needs. If you do not want help with all the details, you can simply contract your planner right before your wedding to oversee details of the day. It always helps to have a reliable and dependable person that can do all the research and running around.
Like most traditions today, traditional weddings are very rare. Modern weddings are becoming more and more popular. Couples and wedding planners are finally thinking outside the box. This day and age, any and everything goes!
Take my own wedding for example. Many people told me I was crazy when I decided to have a candy-themed wedding. Boy, were they in for a surprise. After almost one year of planning and creating hand-made decor, the world famous candy-themed wedding was a big hit. It is still talked about today.
The colors of the rainbow coupled with any and all things candy kept my guests wanting more and more. They were mesmerized by the exotic, creative and unique details: vibrant colors of real touch silk bouquets, rainbow colors of the bridesmaid dresses, candy girls handing out lollipops on the beach, giant floating candy in the ceilings, and custom candy hand pieces carried by the bridal party and ushers. Aside from the bride and groom, the highlight of the evening was the candy and chocolate fondue stations. It was amazingly beautiful! Everyone had a great time.
Before meeting with a wedding planner, it is good to have an idea of your budget, approximately how many guest will be invited and if you prefer traditional or modern weddings. While your wedding planner should be experienced and offer opinions to help plan your wedding, remember it is your wedding. Be as extravagant or conservative as you want. Make your day special and have fun!
A few questions to help you interview wedding planners:
- Do you have samples of your work?
- Do you have a business license?
- Describe the most challenging wedding you planned and how you handled the problems that came up.
