Remember when as students, our teachers and parents had this one statement that was repeated year after year- "Ask as many questions as you can!"
Well, let me go on record and say I can't agree more! The plan for a perfect wedding, the kinds that will leave your guests talking about your celebrations for years, begin by asking the right questions! We know you already have a host of questions lined up for your planners, but let us turn the table around! Here're the top 4 things your planners would want to know before you guys sit down on business.
We thought we'd give you a heads-up.
1. Your Idea Of A Dream Wedding
Yep, we know you want a unique wedding. You want something different. Something creative. Honey, that's literally every bride ever, even the ones who're 12 and have just begin to think of a wedding!
While every bride wants to do things differently, it all boils down to how different are you willing to do things. Would you dare to go out of the box and do something that has never been done before like a Mad Hatter's pre-wedding party or a tribal themed mehendi like real bride Kaabia?
Take it from pro-planners, the best way to make your wedding unique is to include some form of interactive participation like the game Sakshi and Achal played at their roka. 'What's gonna happen next?', the more your guests have to figure it out, the better experience they'd have!
Your experiments will define your personality and set the mood for the wedding; something that your planner needs to know before the planning begins!
2. An Idea Of Your Personal Style
Are you a typical millennial who swears by a fuss-free life or a classic-hearted who prefers to take the traditional route? Your planner would need to know about your personal sense of style, how you are as a couple and the way you like to live to be able to design something that appeals to and talks about you!
3. If You Have Thought Of A Color Scheme Or A Theme
Would you want a theme wedding or if that sounds like a lot, how about a theme for specific functions? Or are you looking at any specific colors? Take for example real bride Preksha's Flamingo-themed mehendi decor to go with turquise color scheme, doesn't it have a character of its own!
Color preferences can help a planner decide upon themes for your wedding or vice versa. You could bring in fabric swatches, or pinned pictures from Pinterest or even magazine tear sheets to help them understand what you're hoping to achieve better!
4. If You Want Any Personalized Elements At Your Wedding
Guess what! Your planner knows nothing about you and your partner, because, DUH! So, in case you're looking at personalizing your wedding celebrations, you'll have to take them through your life- stories about your relationship, how and where you met, things you like to do together, the types of foods you love, your cultural backgrounds, musical preferences, et cetera!
The more your planner knows about you two as individuals and as a couple, there'll be better chances of him being able to execute your wedding exactly how you'd have envisioned it- something that's a true celebration of everything 'you'.
So, revisions are up! Time to get to business now!
