Brainstorming With Your Planner

Jun 01, 2019

The advantages of hiring a wedding planner are many. Brainstorming and then working hand-in-hand with you to develop a wedding plan, allocating and monitoring your budget, sourcing for, negotiating with and appointing vendors, recommending venues, the list goes on, including taking care of all the nitty-gritty that is part and parcel of planning for such a milestone in life.

An experienced and creative wedding planner would also be able to come up with and share ideas on how to personalise your wedding celebrations :

  • Vast knowledge and experience from past events are a good resource for brainstorming.
  • Established relationships with vendors allow planners to draw on the goodwill nurtured to tap the minds of creative professionals.
  • Continued research on the latest trends and fads is the strength of well-regarded planners.

On your part, compile some ideas that may have caught your fancy, as these will be the catalysts for discussions with your planner :

  • Magazines.
  • Photographs.
  • Wedding portals.
  • Blogs.

Employing the services of a planner however entails the following :

  • Putting aside a reasonable budget for their service fee.
  • Deciding if you would like a full-service planner who will plan and execute your wedding from the onset till the end of your banquet or perhaps just the coordination service on your wedding day.
  • Putting your trust in them wholeheartedly.
