The first thing you will need to know is how much assistance you desire from the consultant. It is a good idea to have some sort of handle on what you want to do yourself and what you want the consultant or planner to do. Consultants usually create packages for their services that you can buy based on your specific needs. Look up the planner’s web site; they may have package details and prices listed. Note: some planners will customize their packages while others will not.
Other information you will want to know includes:
-The date of the wedding. It will be necessary to insure the planner has the date available.
-An estimated wedding budget.
-An estimated guest list.
-A list of the decision makers for the wedding.
-Some ideas on your dreams for the wedding and the type of wedding you would like to have.
Here is a final tip: if you like the consultant and decide to book the wedding, there will be a letter of agreement or contract to sign. Many times this agreement is reached at the end of the initial consultation, although it may sometimes be a few days later. Regardless, some sort of deposit or initial payment is expected upon signing with the consultant so you may want to keep this in mind.
