Finding the right wedding planner in Dubai
A wedding is the perfect opportunity to express yourselves as a couple. Finding various wedding planners in Dubai is easy but finding the right wedding planner for YOU is a bit more daunting. Just think about it, this person will be your right hand throughout the whole planning process up until the end of your BIG DAY. Dubai has established itself as a premier wedding locale, offering plenty options for couples planning their big day.
Decide if you need someone on a full-time or part-time basis. If you need someone to completely take over the stress of organizing and coordinating EVERYTHING, then you need a full-service planner. This may include budget planning, venue scouting, caterer selection & management, contract negotiation, creative design, layout planning & production, sound & lighting, entertainment planning, photo and videographer coordination, guest favors, transportation, timeline planning, vendor coordination, day-of set-up and many more
If you decided to handle most of the more stress part and you would only need a coordinator who can help you on the day of the wedding to make sure everything runs smoothly as per plan, then you should be looking for partial planners or wedding consultants. Whether you are going to plan everything on your own, or hire a Dubai-based wedding planner either on a full-time or part-time basis, we have listed some of our best advices in here.
Research the wedding planners you selected
The internet is the easiest and fastest way to find wedding planners in your area. Check out their websites, social media sites and review what services they offer. Reach out to your top picks and find out if they are available on your wedding date. Share the approximate number of guests and if you have any location in mind. The more information you can share at this point, the more information planners can provide you. It is important that you have an estimated budget in your mind on how much you would like to spend on the wedding.
Once you have the finalists, make sure to schedule an in-person meeting with them.
Emails are a great way to get the most important information from them, however nothing gives you better impression than meeting in-person. If it’s not possible, you can always schedule a Skype call.
Prepare for the meeting with the wedding planner
Collect few images, inspiration and other ideas you have to share them with the planner during your initial meeting. See how the planners responds and ask for their opinions. Great planners should be able to ask you the right questions to fully understand your vision and add insight and creative ideas to turn your vision into a unique and personalized experience.
During the meeting get a sense of who the wedding planner is, what they can do for you and observe how your personalities fit together. Review the previous works of the planner and ask for a few references to find out how the planner worked with others.
Pick your choice
Once you met all your shortlisted wedding planners, compared impressions, notes and pricing on all, you should be able to select the planner you want to hire. Once you decided, request the planner to send you the agreement for the services to be provided. Review the agreement carefully before signing and if something is not clear, do not hesitate to request for clarifications.
