One's wedding is likely be the biggest occasion of their life—and figuring out how to plan a wedding step by step can feel pretty daunting at first. Whether you have over a year or just a few months to plan your big day, focus on one task at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed. If you’re in a time crunch, go ahead and delegate some of these responsibilities to family members and friends—but this will not be the best way to do it. Having a wedding planner has become a must to ensure you enjoy the most in your wedding festivities.

Here is a check-list you’ll need to complete to ensure you hire the right person for the success of your big day.

Analyse your options well

There is no dearth of planners to choose from—but that does not mean that every available option is a good match for you. Background check of the planner in terms of weddings and events organised is also very crucial. You need to do extensive research on social media before committing to anything. Referring to testimonials will give you good insight about the planner.

Make sure your vibes match

Set up a few initial meetings with the planner to ensure that he/she is the right person to take decisions for your big day. After all, the planner is going to be a part of the family during the entire process and you don't wish to get stuck with a person who does not understand your choices well. Choose someone you are comfortable with in interacting.  Evaluate if the planner can understand your needs as well as the family's. You need to be thoroughly convinced with your choice. 

Communicate well with the planner

Think about how you want your wedding to look and feel. Are you going for a super-classic and formal vibe? Or perhaps an event that’s more relaxed and rustic?  All this has to be communicated and discussed elaborately with your wedding planner. So that he/she might give you the best available options to choose from.

Be cautious about the deadlines

If the planner has too many commitments around your wedding dates, or won't be around personally for your functions, that's a red flag right there. Make sure the decisions you take are implemented well in time and the planner executes everything personally, be it hospitality, artists, decor, production or logistics. This is extremely essential to ensure a smooth, seamless and timely execution.

Ensure that it is budget-friendly

When it comes to figuring out how to plan a wedding—you’ll need to decide how much you can spend on your wedding. It might not be the most fun part of the process, but it’s a task that really needs to be completed so that you do not end up spending more. Discuss this with your planner and make sure he understands your constraints well.

The planner knows better

You need to trust the skills and experience that your planner has and not question him for all the decisions he/she takes. This might over-burden him/her and create unnecessary clashes. The planner is committed to delivering the best because their names are attached to your wedding celebrations too and they would wish to make it as big a success as much as you do.
