How do I know a wedding planner is right for me?

You’ve researched all the Essex and Suffolk alternative and unconventional wedding planners. You have scoured the UKAWP, Unconventional Weddings, Pretty and Punk Weddings and more wedding directories for vetted wedding planners. Then you’ve stalked their Insta account and found your favs! Now is the time to make that call/email/text.

But how do you know they are the right alternative wedding planner for you?


Have you checked their pricing? Are they in your budget? They your style of wedding planner?

When you make that call do you get that same feeling when you visited their website?

The best way to know if it’s the right wedding planner for you is in that first initial meeting, face to face or zoom! Do you click?

Ask them everything and anything: Do you work alone? What exact services do you provide? How much do you charge? Are you insured? What is your specialty? Why should I hire you? Ask for testimonials and reviews.


The person you choose to hire will be your WBF (Wed Best Friend) for up to two years and beyond. Hence need to be your person. You need to be compatible, they need to understand you and know exactly what you want for your day, and so you must like and trust them!

Don’t feel bad if you don’t feel the connection when meeting, they just aren’t the right planner for you, the right one is out there, it just wasn’t meant to be this time. Plus they will know other planners, that they can put you in contact with, we are a wonderful community.

It’s like finding ‘the’ dress, you just know!
