Tips from us!
Work with a wedding planner that has years of experience with different types of weddings
Make sure the planner you interview with has many years of experience working on many different types of weddings. The more they have worked on, the better job they can do for each couple and the more ideas they can offer. -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
Make sure the wedding planner is insured.
Many venues require this now, but even if the venue does not, the couple should feel assured that when hiring a wedding planner, they hire is a true professional running a legitimate business and is not just doing this as a hobby. -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
Ask the wedding planner if the same person will be working with you throughout the planning and also be present on the wedding day.
That continuity is comforting! -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
Inquire as to how many weddings the planner works on in one weekend.
Each couple wants to know that they have a planner on site that is not exhausted from the night before and has not confused any details with the wedding they are working on the next day. -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
Find a planner that spends more time working for their clients than they do on their social media and marketing.

Wedding planners are not only for over-the-top weddings
Their extensive knowledge in the industry makes them valuable to all couples, regardless of the size or budget of the wedding. Wedding planners can help you save money, find the best value for your money and are not only for the over-the-top weddings our there. -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
Independent planners work hand in hand with venue coordinators as a team.
They do not compete or get in each other’s way. Instead, they complement each other. Each of them can do what they do best while both are trying to achieve the same goal, the best wedding possible for the couple! -Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Unique Weddings by Alexis
