How many clients do you have per year (or the month of your wedding)?

Have you ever worked with one of the reception halls that make me dream?
Most Paris wedding planners have a list of their favorite vendors that they work with at weddings. Their opinion on your choice of providers will not only allow you to have feedback on their services, but it will also help you find the most interesting ones according to your budget. If you already have ideas about what you want for your wedding, it is important to talk directly to your wedding planner because his contacts can help you.
How much do your services cost to organize a wedding?

The Paris wedding planner can propose you wedding packages that will allow you to know his rates and to understand the services he puts at your disposal. To decide between several people, you must be able to compare the services they can provide you. Do not hesitate to ask for the details of the different services announced by these professionals and to require a detailed estimate of the service of your wedding planner. You will then be able to judge if they correspond to your expectations.
Can you explain the selection process of the different providers and how we would participate in it?
You want to be sure to have the best team around you on your wedding day, so it is important to understand how your Paris Wedding Planner makes his choices in terms of providers. Wedding planners spend a lot of time building relationships with other providers (photographers, caterers, decorators, florists…), so you can learn about their already established network. You also want to make sure that they suggest the people who will best meet your expectations. During your interview, write down the names of some of the professionals the person likes to work with so you can do your own research.
How do you ensure that everything is ready on time?
This question will tell you about the organizational methods of your professional. A wedding planner must be an expert in organization. It must be someone square and precise. It is important to see if his way of working corresponds to you and if you feel reassured to leave such organization to this wedding planner. If the speech of the person you have in front of you does not seem clear and orderly, be wary. Moreover, it is important to know how the wedding planner manages the hazards which can come to disturb the initial organization of the wedding. This includes having a plan B.
What is your relationship with the bride and groom?
This kind of question allows you to judge the personality of your Paris wedding planner. It will indeed be important to meet the person to feel if the current passes between you. The wedding planner is undoubtedly the service provider to whom you will have to deal with the most, it will be your right hand. Also, it must be someone with whom you have affinities, who understands you, who will be able to apply your instructions and to give you good ideas. This will allow you to understand how they work, whether they are more of a bonding type or more formal and professional.
What do you envision for our wedding?
