30 Must-Ask Questions for Wedding Planners

A wedding planner will handle ever aspect of your wedding: working with vendors, organizing all the details and answering your wedding planning and wedding etiquette questions. It's very important to hire someone who you feel comfortable speaking openly with... and someone who would represent you well at vendor meetings you can't attend. That's why you absolutely can't hire a planner for your wedding without asking these 30 important questions.

1. How many weddings has she planned?

2. Can she work within my budget?

3. What is her fee? Is it a flat fee, a percentage of the wedding, an hourly rate, etc.?

4. What is included in her fee -- all phone calls, meetings, e-mails, etc.?

5. Does she get a kickback from vendors?

6. Does she understand my vision?

7. Will she make a checklist of all the items I need to accomplish?

8. Will she create a timeline for the wedding day?

9. Does she have an assistant who will work with her at my wedding?
