Some Reasons and Ways To Select A Wedding Consultant

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Hiring a wedding consultant can be a big time saver and, in some cases, a money saver also. When some consultants charge a flat service fee, others may charge a percentage of the wedding budget. Make sure to clarify the fees before you make a final decision to hire a consultant. At the same time, it would be quite unwise to base on the fee alone. Consider how much you plan to allow the consultant do for you. Remember that good wedding consultants maintain excellent working rapport with vendors and venues that can transform into opportunities for savings.

Time is perhaps the most vital factor a wedding consultant can save. These days, most couples are working professionals, so are their relatives. They may not find time to plan the wedding in exactly the way they would like; nor do their relatives and friends, who can help them. In such circumstances, hiring a wedding consultant would be a good idea.

Hiring a wedding consultant would not only save time and money of the couples, but can also save their nerves from being worn and torn. Bear in mind that professional consultants have firsthand experience as to how to accomplish a wedding ceremony within a specified budget. So, if a couple is going to hire such a consultant, they should opt for hiring the person before any other vendors. Although couples may come across a host of such consultants, they should keep aside those who can't work within their budget and seem less concerned with their opinions.

What does a wedding consultant do?

In a nutshell, a consultant can perform all the works that a wedding ceremony may include. Those works may range from planning wedding dresses of the groom and the bride to the decoration of the wedding venue, to guest reception, or to arranging honeymoon for the couples. Most of such consultants are expert in planning and managing all these jobs. However, such consultants can be hired on the basis of the requirements of the couples. For example, they can hire consultants to manage the event partially, or hire them to manage the event fully. To be precise, the couples will get the service what they pay for. It is for sure that a couple who spends thousands of dollars will get more services than those who spend fewer. So, it is up to the decision of the couples to which extent they would allow the consultants to perform.

How to choose a good consultant?

Whether couples are going to choose a consultant for managing the event partially or managing it fully, make sure that the couples have got a list of references. This will help them pick out the right one who can meet their expectations fully. But, whoever they choose, it is necessary for them to examine the claims of any wedding consultant thoroughly. Here is a set of some pertinent questions that can help them select a good wedding consultant.

i) Numbers of weddings in the locality they have planned so far

ii) Their skills in personalizing the style and theme of the wedding the couples are planning on

iii) Offers of discounts with vendors they have partnership with

iv) Expertise in helping the bride shop for a gown and select the bridesmaid dresses

v) Expertise in creating wedding party gifts

vi) Commitment to accomplish the event within the budget

vii) Experience in negotiating vendor prices

viii) Skill in arranging wedding weekend for destination weddings

The answers to these questions will help the couples to get an idea of their skills and experience in wedding consultancy. If they have been dealing with such consultancy for long time, they will definitely have acquaintances with anyone in the neighborhood of the couples or among any members of their family and friends. At the same time, couples may also come across a skillful and experienced consultant, but the consultant may not be popular in their locality for being new. In this case, selecting such a consultant will be an intelligent step. So, whoever the couples are selecting, make sure that they have enquired whether the consultant has working relationship with any of the known vendors of the couples.
