Do I need a Bridal/Event Consultant?
A consultant will be a distinct asset as you plan your wedding/event. Wouldn't it be nice to a guest at your wedding/event instead of worrying about all the details of your special wedding/event? A consultant will take care of those details, leaving you to have fun.
Do I need a contract with my consultant?
You should have some agreement in writing. While some people prefer a formal contract, a letter of agreement signed by both of you is usually enough. This is an informal contract which spells out fees, payment schedules and what each of you will do.
It is important you look for a consultant with professional credentials. You should also be very comfortable with the person. You will be spending a lot of time together planning you wedding/event.
Won't a consultant want to run the whole show?
A professional consultant will work with your to handle as much or as little of your wedding/event as you wish. After all, it is your wedding/event. The consultant is there to help you and your family and make the day as perfect as possible.
