FAQs

  • Introduction

    A wedding planner can be a significant help on your special day. The happy couple and their closest loved ones should be able to enjoy their wedding day without worries. A wedding planner eases the burden off the couple, handles any problems that arise during the planning process and on the wedding day, and helps to put on a fantastic wedding.

  • How do you become a wedding planner?

    There are courses and diplomas people can take to become a certified wedding planner; however, it’s not necessary. Regardless of if an individual gets a certification, the most essential step is to gain experience. Most wedding planners start by doing a few free weddings to build a portfolio. That portfolio can be used to promote the business and attract new clients.

  • How much does a wedding planner cost?

    The national average cost of a wedding planner in 2019 was $1,500. However, it should be noted that this can vary dramatically. Average costs can vary from state to state. Additionally, factors such as the size of the wedding, the level of planning, the extravagance of the wedding, and the wedding planner’s experience can all change pricing.

  • Do wedding planners have specialties?

    Yes, wedding planners can have specialties. For example, some wedding planners may specialize in destination weddings. Or wedding planners can specialize in the extent of wedding support they offer. A day-of-coordinator will only arrive on the day of the wedding and help during the day. In comparison, a complete wedding planner will help with the planning and execution of the wedding.

  • How do you know if you need a wedding planner?

    Hiring a wedding planner is a personal choice. Ultimately, the wedding couple needs to decide if they have the budget for a planner and if they believe the investment to be worth it. For example, some people enjoy planning events, so they wouldn’t need a wedding planner. Conversely, planning stresses other people, so it might be a task they want to outsource.

  • Is there a certification to become a wedding planner?

    The wedding planning certification industry is “largely unregulated.” This means that while you can get a wedding planner certification, it might not always be from a qualified source. One trusted source is the certification from the American Association of Certified Wedding Planners.  

    A certification can be a great asset, but there are many qualified wedding planners who don’t have a certification.

  • How do you find a destination wedding planner?

    Planning a destination wedding is very different from planning a local wedding. You’ll want to find someone who has experience organizing a destination wedding.

    Many destinations offer an in-house wedding planner. However, if you need to find your own destination wedding planner, local Facebook wedding groups are an excellent place to ask for referrals.
