Characteristics to Look for in a Wedding Planner

ballroom for your wedding

Are you considering a gorgeous ballroom for your wedding? If so, there are many aspects to your big day that need to be planned accordingly. Such details include save-the-dates, invitations, catering, desserts, the guest list, seating charts, decorations, and much, much more! This is an exciting endeavor, but perhaps you don’t have the time necessary to plan each aspect of your wedding. If this is the case, consider hiring an event planner to take care of the details for you. Here are some characteristics to look for.


As stated above, there are so many details when it comes to planning a big event. Because of this, hiring a detail-oriented wedding planner is crucial. This way, they will be sure to consider even the nitty-gritty details, like who shouldn’t sit next to each other at the reception, when the music should begin when the bride walks down the aisle, and what time the cocktail party should end the reception should start.


When it comes to planning a wedding, experience is crucial when you’re hiring a professional. Couples often engage a planner because they don’t have the time themselves to take care of the details. Because of this, you can’t hand-hold or feel the need to check on your planner when it’s their job to worry about the finite details! Experience is key.


According to The Knot, 34% of couples hire a wedding or event planner. If you’ve decided this is the best option for you as well, be sure to find a professional who is organized on top of detail-oriented, and experienced. Even if a planner thinks about the important details of your wedding, it doesn’t mean they’ll follow through. An organized professional will ensure your big day goes off without a hitch!


Finally, any type of planner needs to be communicative. Remember, it’s your big day, and your happiness and satisfaction are most important. This means that while you aren’t calling catering companies or designing invitations because that’s what you hired your planner to do, you still want to be in the loop. When you are interviewing potential wedding planners, be sure to ask about how often you’ll receive updates.
