If the relationship does not feel right at the beginning then go with your gut and find someone else.
A wedding planner will do all the leg work for you. You must first establish a budget and what you are looking for. The planner will then act on your behalf with all wedding vendors and get all the information you need to make the appropriate decisions, while staying within your budget. They have the training and experience to do the ground work and make sure it all works the way you want it to, while you relax and enjoy. Most planners are very detailed and organized by nature so making the wedding process a warm welcome from any bride.
