Limousine Tallahassee Wedding Guide

Wedding Planners

For the young and inexperienced, planning a wedding can be one of the most overwhelming periods of your life despite the fact that it is leading up to one of the most wondrous days you will experience. The details can seem never ending, and each one takes special care in order to ensure a fantastic wedding. Between reserving venues, booking the entertainment, and selecting the floral arrangements it may seem like a mountain to climb, and those are not the only details you will need to consider during the process. This is why it is no surprise that so many couples consider and end up hiring a wedding planner to help them in some capacity. If you feel as though you are in dire need of help in some facet, and your budget allows for the expense, then you are in luck because Tallahassee is abundant in fantastic professional wedding planners. We have some tips that could make your life a lot less stressful during an epoch of your life that you expect to feel nothing but good vibes, forget anxiety!

The first tip is to determine the capacity of work in which you will need your planner to work in and be sure it correlates to your budget so you are not breaking the bank. It really depends on how much you can afford, and what you realistically cannot get done. You will have three options in relation to wedding planners, a full-service planner, a partial service planner, and a day-of coordinator. A full-service planner will do everything if you contract them to do so, that includes reserving the venues, booking catering services, and even handling all the coordination. Most people cannot afford a full-service planner despite the fact that they are not all that expensive relatively speaking, which is where the partial service planner fits into the picture. Partial-service planners will handle anything that you cannot handle, all within the constraints of your budget, so it may be more of an advisory role that the planner takes on. The last option is the day-of planner, which is reserved for the couples who are in desperate need of help coordinating everything about a month ahead of the wedding, so the job title is a bit misleading, but it describes the desperation well enough. You should really consider hiring a planner, because in the end, they will be saving you money noticeably in certain areas, especially since if you have not been married before, you probably are woefully inexperienced in the areas they would be saving you money.

Now that you have established what sort of planner you will need, you should commence your search for one with the recommendations of your friends, family, and most trusted colleagues, in particular, anyone who has been married recently, or involved in a wedding to some extent. You will also discover that online wedding directories are a fantastic source of information, not just on planners but all sorts of vendors, including details on pricing, reviews, bridal testimonials, pictures, videos, and more! Before you start calling potential planners up, you should first have a few things predetermined such as an approximate guest count, the preferred date of the wedding, and your vision of the proceedings. Once you call up the candidates on your list, you should first ask if they are available. Only book appointments with candidates that are available, or at the very minimum, not incredibly busy during the time of your wedding so they have more time to dedicate to your needs.

It is important to come prepared with plenty of questions for each candidate, ranging from personal to business related topics. You should ask them of their experience, and on average, how many weddings do they coordinate a year. You will want to discuss their costs, and obtain a sample invoice from each candidate so you can do a side-by-side comparison of the packages they offer, and which one will be the most bang for your buck. The key thing is how much you foresee yourself trusting this person with the delicate duties of planning your wedding. If you do not feel comfortable with this person, or do not feel as though you will have a great line of communication with them for whatever reason, do not consider them. The planner should be organized, polite, friendly, thorough, energized, and dedicated. Once you have made your decision, write up a contract, place a deposit if necessary, and let the planner handle all the stress! Congratulations!
