Planning a wedding, whether as a couple or with a wedding planner, is an undertaking that can be overwhelming for even the most experienced. Asking the right questions (and lots of them!) will help ensure that your big day runs seamlessly. We asked some of the wedding industry’s top planners for advice on which questions couples should be asking to guarantee their day stay flawless from the design stages to the walk down the aisle. What differentiates you from other wedding planners?
“There are major differences with how wedding planners work and what they do. Are they just coordinating or are they designing and producing the event as well? Do they only do full-service, or do they have a partial services option? All companies are different in what they offer or specialize in, so it is great to cover that right at the beginning and make sure your expectations are aligned.”- Morgan Childs, Founder and Creative Director, Moana Events
