Hiring a wedding planner is a critical decision that will determine how the event goes. It’s therefore okay to be a bit skeptical when searching for the person who holds the key to the success of your wedding. The question is, what do you look for in such a person? Here are the top 5 qualities of a good wedding planner as suggested by Weddings & Events by Kui.
This is perhaps the most important trait that a wedding planner, and any event organizer for that matter, should possess. Organizing every detail of a wedding event is not an easy job; it takes an organized individual to beat the odds. Such a person should be good at managing time as well as multi-tasking. Being organized also means having answers to every aspect of the wedding at your fingertips. This enables one to work under pressure and on short deadlines.
Planning a wedding requires more than just following a mundane tradition. Every couple wants to do things differently and to give their wedding an element of individuality. A good wedding planner must therefore be in a position to add new dynamics to ordinary things and make every event look different. That’s what separates professionals from amateurs.
Knowledge of every aspect of a wedding event is a must-have ingredient. Indeed, it’s passion that drives one to want to understand every bit of a wedding. Your wedding planner should know by heart the dos and don’ts of a wedding, from the moment a couple gets engaged to the day they end their honeymoon. In any case, you need someone who knows how to work with any budget to achieve optimal results.
A wedding planner interacts with just about anyone, from the bride and groom to the best couple, maids, vendors, caterers, photographers and anybody else involved in the wedding. Good interpersonal skills are therefore required to ensure everything is communicated to and between the relevant parties accordingly. A wedding planner has to have good negotiation skills to be able to negotiate with wedding vendors.
Every wedding planner is bound to encounter problems in their career, but how they solve such problems is what determines how good they are at what they do. Some problems require one to think on their feet. We at Weddings & Events by Kui pride ourselves on our ability to think quickly and analyze problems critically to come up with the most workable solution.
