Amongst your friends, colleagues and relatives, you cannot fail to find someone who has worked with a nuptial planner before. Feel free to ask such people for referrals. This way, you will be able to come up with a list of potential coordinators to choose from.

Once you get referrals from friends and other sources, the next step is to peruse through the planners portfolio and see if you like his/her style. This you can do by browsing through prospective planners websites for photos of their recent weddings. When perusing through the photos, you should take note whether elements like color and decor seem cohesive. Whatever you see on these photos is probably what the planner is most experienced about, as such, you should decide if you like it.

Once you see some portfolios that impress you, the next step should be to organize for a meeting with respective planners. Face to face meeting is very important as it allows you the opportunity to ask your prospective planner all the necessary questions. You should avoid coordinators who are not willing to meet you for face to face interview.

To save yourself some disappointment and financial crisis in future, you need to make sure that your planners fee is within your budget. At the same, you should also be able to give him/her enough money in order to deliver that dream wedding. While a good planner should be able to work with any budget, if everything in his/her portfolio is way above your budget, it will be very difficult for him to deliver those results you are looking for.

You need to take some time and call a few of his/her references and ask them important questions. This way, you will increase your chances of finding the best.

Once you decide which planner you are going to hire, you should call him/her immediately and seal the deal. Remember that the demand for good planners is usually very high. Because of this, you should not wait until it is too late to make a booking. Otherwise, you might just miss out on the best.
