While your wedding will probably be the happiest day of your life, the days leading up to it can be some of the most stressful. For this reason, more and more couples are hiring the services of a wedding planner to help with the proceedings. Obviously there are some big advantages to hiring a wedding planner but you must take care to hire the right person. There has been an influx into this industry of people who may not be experienced or qualified enough to cope with your needs.

When choosing your wedding planner, try to look past their experience and qualifications and see what type of person they are. You should feel that you can trust them totally and that you can be totally honest with them about your needs and expectations. Communication is another factor; do you feel confident talking to them? Does the wedding planner take on board your ideas or drown them out with their own? The personality of the wedding planner is just as important as their qualifications. As long as you feel comfortable talking to them and can leave them to do their job, then you are in a good position to establish a good working relationship.

Traditionally weddings have been held either in a church, synagogue, temple or other religious building where the bride and groom share a common faith, or at a register office. However, in the modern age more and more couples are choosing more unusual locations such as beaches and sports venues. The decision of where to hold your wedding is not as straightforward as you may think, so take your time in choosing the right location.

If the bride and groom are of the same religion, then choosing the right location can be very straightforward; the only major problem that may arise is the availability of dates.
