Wedding planners can play an important part in creating a memorable day for a bride and groom. Successful wedding planners have plenty of ideas when it comes to wedding decorations, reception venues, flowers, photography, and more. It is important for an engaged couple to choose a wedding planner who is both successful and easy to work with.The first step in choosing an efficient wedding planner is to make a list of potential candidates. It’s wise to include local wedding planners as well as individuals who’ve been recommended by other couples. After making the list, a couple should contact the wedding planners and express a desire to talk with them. A professional wedding planner is likely to go out of his or her way to arrange to speak with an engaged couple in need of planning help.Next, a couple should create a list of questions to ask the wedding planners. A couple should ask about the experience of the person as well as what he or she charges. Many successful wedding planners will have photographs and other samples from weddings they have worked on. A wedding planner may also outline what he or she does to help a couple decide on the location of the wedding reception or even how to choose the wedding flowers. Most importantly, a wedding planner should listen to the ideas of the couple and answer any questions they have. After all, an ambitious wedding planner is anxious to garner a solid reputation.After considering the candidates, the couple should make a final decision on who they want to plan their wedding. The person should be easy to work with, creative, flexible, and willing to go out of his or her way to fulfill the couple’s wishes. In addition, a savvy wedding planner understands that a wedding can create a lot of stress for a couple. Consequently, he or she makes sure to keep the atmosphere as light as possible and tries to lessen the stress for the couple.Selecting the right wedding planner can take a great deal of stress off an engaged couple and allow them the opportunity to enjoy their big day.

AnswerNot neccessarily...being a wedding planner has a lot to do with connections and relationships in the beginning. I was interested in wedding planning for years and was given the fabulous opportunity of planning the wedding of a friend of my sister 4 years ago.

To become a wedding or event planner, you must have an eye for detail. You should be a person who is able to plan your personal life and have a passion for entertaining people. Planning requires great attention to detail and a person who relates to people at all levels. I think any form of training or course that is given to a person intending to be a planner should be done not to learn the art of planning an event or a wedding, but rather to enhance your natural ability. Events/Wedding Planning is a passion that must come naturally. It requires a person who can work well under pressure, who is innovative and can make on the spot decisions. When you plan an important event, you cannot afford to falter under pressure, you should always have a Plan B in place and know how to keep your clients calm under any situation. I think to be a successful planner you have to be artistic as well because your creativity will also play a big part in the events you plan. Get yourself equipped by understanding the various areas that make us for a successful event, like catering, decorators, musicians, stationery printers, photographers, videographers etc. Build a strong vendor catalogue of people that you have experienced first hand and get to know what they offer. You need people that you can rely on in this business. You should also know how to market yourself well in this business. Image does matter. Generally you will need to take some courses (there are a lot offered online) and you can either join someone elses business or start your own. There are many ways to get started as an event planner. You can start your own business, apprentice with an event planner, get an event planner job, or take a course. Courses may be helpful in getting some jobs, but there is no industry-wide training requirement.

Depending on where your wedding is taking place. In some cases a wedding planner is employed by the venue where teh ceremony and wedding breakfast is taking place. This will undertake a full end to end assessment of your requests, cost them and agree terms etc for the big day. In other cases you can approach a person/company who is not attached to the venue and will be an intermediary between you and then venue etc. It will be then up to you to check their quality of work and look for references of what they have done for others. This is very important as a wedding is normally a once in a life time event and very costly especially if it isn't planned meticulously
