Love this glow stick exit at Club Continental. We did this wedding with Tanya over at Southern Charm Events. Here's some info from a recent interview with local wedding planners:
What should a bride look for when hiring a coordinator?
Lisa provides this great list for what you should look for in a planner:
- Professionally trained
- Member of a Bridal Association
- Continues education and keeps up with the latest trends
- A planner who actually has time for you
- Your personalities are a match
“We work behind the scenes to prevent problems ahead of time, or deal with them as they happen on the wedding day,” Heather Canada adds. “In most cases, our brides never know what goes on to make sure their event is stress-free!”
If you are looking to hire a wedding coordinator, I HIGHLY suggest you talk to any of the three mentioned in this article. And just like all your wedding vendors, the best one is the one that you feel most comfortable with and understands your style the best:
