Tips when looking for a planner....
-You get what you pay for-unless you are David Tutera, most planners and coordinators charge within the same ballpark. If someone is priced well below they are most likey new to the industry. With all the media hype, more and more people are looking to get into the biz. Planning their own wedding or their best friends wedding doesn't qualify someone as a wedding planner. You have put so much heart, so much time and energy, and so much money into your wedding you may not want to skimp on this.
-Choose a planner that understands your vision.
-Choose a planner that is responsive and easy to contact.
-Choose a planner you connect with.
_Choose a planner who is well connected-that means people like to work with them and that also means you can possibly save some $$$.
