Planning a wedding often requires a monumental amount of patience and research and endless decision making. Whether your wedding is small or large, the wedding planning process is time consuming. If you don’t have the temperament or simply don’t have the time, a wedding planner is definitely a good alternative.

Ideally, a wedding planner will shoulder the bulk of the coordination regarding your special day. Taking the lead in organizing, preparing, as well as communicating with various vendors and wedding party participants, your wedding planner can make a potentially stressful process less painful. And because this is what a planner is trained to do, and does, all year long, they can more seamlessly plan the event, streamlining the process for you and your fiancé.

However, while securing a planner can definitely lighten the load, you need to find the right person for you. And you need to protect yourself to the extent possible. So before hiring your planner, you should do some checking, from sources such as wedding guides, local vendors and the internet. Get references. And no matter how highly recommended, you should interact enough to know that you get along well and that you understand each other. Here you will find suggested questions to put to your prospective planner, as well as other guidelines to follow.

If you are hiring a wedding planner, you want to do it right. It is essential that your agreement be in writing, and it must define the scope, components and duration of your agreement. A well-drafted contract will help to avoid disputes, ensure that you get your money’s worth, and most important, help towards creating the wedding you want. The wedding planner agreement herein has all of this and more to offer any newlywed couple as they navigate through the engagement to “I Do”.

Guidelines

Although preparing a well-crafted Wedding Planner Agreement is certainly important, there are a number of other easy steps you can take to minimize problems or miscommunication with your planner, saving yourself future heartache.  Below are a few tips to help you further protect your interests:

o   Discuss in detail your expectations regarding the tasks you want your wedding planner to accomplish.  Do not assume that some tasks are obviousstate them explicitly and ask many questions whenever you need more information.

o   If you are not sure what your wedding planner can do for you, ask them to give you a short presentation regarding their services and contacts.  If possible, see if you can observe a wedding they have planned to see how smoothly he/she runs the day.

o   Make sure you discuss the financial terms up front.  Do not assume that this can be handled at another time, or give your planner carte blanche.  

o   Make sure your prospective wedding planner knows your needs in terms of communication.  From once a week to once a day, you should be on the same page.

o   Allow the wedding planner time to review the document before signing.  This will reduce the likelihood that he/she does not understand the terms of the agreement.

o   Have two copies of the agreements signed, one for your records, the other to be provided to the wedding planner.

o   Remember that your wedding planner is not your employee; they are essentially an independent contractor hired by you for this single event.  If you happen to be in a position in which you have other employees, make sure you are not treating the wedding planner in the same way you treat your employees (e.g. closely managing his/her work, requiring the work to be performed during set times and in designated locations, etc).  Avoid setting a regular pattern of daily or weekly hoursafter all, the self-employed individual will presumably select when and where he/she will work in relation to his/her customers.  Your wedding planner should supply his/her own equipment and supplies [i.e. computer, cell phones, pamphlets, binders, etc.]

   Your Wedding Planner Agreement should be signed prior to the commencement of service.  Delaying the execution of the contract only heightens the chances for a miscommunication.
o   It is important to check-in with your wedding planner as often as possible to ensure progress as well as to make sure things are being done as you directed.  Although a wedding planner can coordinate and manage the particulars, as the bride or groom, the final decisions should always rest on your shoulders.  Although you may think that youve given adequate and foolproof instructions, this may not be the case.

     Review the wedding planner agreement you are using carefully.  No one size fits all.

Sample Questionnaire for Interviewing Prospective Wedding Planners
In additional to the suggestions already provided in this document, you will also want to thoroughly question your chosen planner, before you make any final decisions.  Below is a sample of questions you should consider and ask:
Background Questions
1.   How long have you been in the wedding planning business?  Do you do many events or specialize in weddings?
2.   How did you start in this business?
3.   Is this a full or part-time job?  [It might speak to his/her commitment to the job if it is only part-time.]
4.   How many weddings do you coordinate each year? 
5.    What type of training do you have?
6.   Are you a member of any bridal, trade or wedding associations? [This is usually a good thing.  You should of course check into the associations to see their standards.]
7.   What type of weddings do you usually plan?  Size? Locations? Traditional vs. modern? [Ask many questions hereif you are having a small wedding, you want someone who has done plenty of small weddings.  If you are having a large wedding, you definitely need someone who is very experienced in this area.]
8.   How many weddings do you plan in a year?  
9.   How many weddings will you be working on at the same time? Is this number typical for you?
10.   Will you be present for the duration of my wedding?  
11.   What services do you include in your package?
Money Matters
1.   If you charge for the initial meeting and I hire you, will this charge be applied to the cost of your services? [The answer to this question should be yes.]
2.    Do you accept any fees from the referrals you make? [The answer here should be a definitive Noyour planner should work for and be paid by younot by anyone else.]
3.   What is your refund, cancellation, and postponement policy? [Whatever the policies are, make sure they are clearly set forth in the contract.]
4.   Are the fees you quote subject to change?
5.   How are you paid-- in installments, or after the wedding is completed?  [It is not advisable to pay the total amount up front].
6.   How do you accept payment [cash/check, credit, etc.]
7.   How do you determine your charges?

Services Provided
1.   Are you a full-service provider? [Does he/she coordinate all of the vendors, from florist to caterer to DJ and officiate?]
2.   Do you sell wedding invitations?
3.   Do you have multiple choices for each vendor?  [While your planner may have his/her favorites, it is definitely advisable that you have an array of choices.]
4.   Do you have an assistant or someone who can assist in the planning should you become ill or for any other reason?
General Planning Style
1.   Will you confirm our conversations and any decisions made [via email, phone calls, etc]?
2.   Do you absolutely agree that the final decision for anything related to the wedding must always rest with the bride & groom?
3.   How do you document the wedding planning process as the wedding date approaches?  
4.   How do you communicate with your bride & groom?
5.   Do you communicate with other members of the wedding party?
6.   Are you available for questions throughout the process?  If so, how and when can we reach you?
7.   Do you set up regular meetings [weekly, monthly, etc.]?
8.   Do you have checklists or additional helpful guidelines for the bride and groom and wedding party?
This list is certainly not exhaustive, but it gives you a good place to start.  Add questions that are tailored to your specific needs and concerns.  
Wedding Planner Agreement Instructions
In an effort to make this as simple as process, below is an explanation of key provisions intended to help you: i) better understand the terms of the Wedding Planner Agreement, and ii) tailor the agreement to fit the your needs.   Please note that not every provision will be discussed.
The numbers and letters below (e.g. Section 1(a), Section 2(d), etc.) refer to the corresponding provision within the agreement itself.  Please review the agreement in its entirety before beginning the step-by-step completion process.

   Introduction of Parties  Generally, the first paragraph of any agreement identifies the parties and the date the agreement was signed.

   Recitals  The “whereas” clauses, referred to as recitals, located at the top of the agreement define the world of the agreement and offer any key background information about the parties.

   Section 1(a) Services to be Performed When completing this section, please be as detailed as possible.  The majority of problems that arise in wedding planner agreements are due to misunderstandings surrounding the services the planner is to perform.  Again, although elements of the wedding planning may seem obvious to you, they may not be so obvious to the wedding planner.  If you need additional space, insert the language: “See Schedule A attached hereto.”  Then write the complete services description on a separate sheet of paper, labeling it as “Schedule A” and attaching it to the agreement

   Section 1(b) Duration of Services Be very specific here.  Not only include the wedding date, but also the times, locations, and itinerary involved.  There should be no question that you expect your wedding planners presence for the entirety of your day, on site at the location.

   Section 1(c) Reporting  This is an optional provision requiring that the wedding planner provide you with progress reports.  Although a report may be perceived as a waste of time and additional work by the wedding planner, it will help ensure that your wedding planning remains on schedule, as well as provide an additional check that the everything is getting done as you directed, as well as ensuring effective communication.

   Section 1(d) Contact InformationTailor this to your personal expectations.  If you want your wedding planner to be able to reach you and have immediate contact, give the information necessary.  If you would prefer messages left on a voicemail, and then getting back to him/her, consider that as well.  Typically, a bride will provide a number which she either answers or checks very frequently as well as a general email address.  It is usually not advisable to use work email for wedding planning, for obvious reasons.  Whatever contact information you provide, remember that the goal is easy communication balanced with preserving some privacy.

   Section 2 AssurancesThis section functions to further cements the relationship between the Wedding Planner and the Engaged Couple, assuring that there wont be unapproved substitutions of personnel or surprising charges.  IT also serves as further protection for the Engaged Couple, so that they get exactly what they are seeking per this contract.

   Section 3 Final Wedding Decisions---Again, it is always better to state clearly and concisely your expectations per the contractual relationship.  Because this is YOUR wedding, no one else should be making the final decisions.  And because this is paramount to the working relationship, it should be set forth in writing within the contract.

   Section 4 Not An EmployeeAs discussed previously, you do not want to create the perception that your Wedding Planner is anything other than an independent contractor.  This is added protection for the Engaged Couple, so there is no confusion resulting in possible litigation or penalties for non-compliance with various state and federal regulations governing regular employees. This needs to be true in word and in deed.

   Section 5 Payment  We have provided you three options.  The first and most likely option is based on installments.  The second and third are to be used when payment occurs on the date of the event in this case, your wedding.   Since most wedding planning payments operate on a flat fee schedule, there should not be any changes to the fee agreed upon.  When possible, we recommend that the entire fee, or at least the bulk of the fee, not be paid at the commencement of services.  Otherwise, you will be left with little or no leverage.  Once you have chosen the appropriate provision, delete the other.

   Section 6 Expenses  This is another area of the arrangement that can lead to potential disputes, so complete it carefully and tailor it to match your own oral agreement and expectations.  When specifying the “authorized expenses” (i.e. those you will reimburse the wedding planner for), be detailed and precise in your language.  It is better to be under-inclusive than over-inclusive.  If there are no expenses that you will pay for, insert “None” in the space provided.

   Section 7 Compliance with Laws  This provision accomplishes two goals.  First, it restates the expectation and requirement that the work performed by the planner be of a quality level considered standard in the industry he/she operates.  Second, that the wedding planner will obtain and obey any and all regulations that govern the services performed (i.e. make sure you are in compliance with the regulations and rules of the reception site, any permits required for the ceremony or reception, etc.).

   Section 8 Termination  This clause simply states that the wedding planners relationship with you will end at the earlier of: i) the services being completed (i.e. the wedding is done) or ii) after either party receives written notice of the other partys intent to end the agreement.  Please note that this is a mutual termination provision which allows either party (not just you or your fiancé) to terminate the agreement.  

   Section 9 Return of Materials  This provision is optional.  In case you have provided the planner with some of your own materials to ensure the wedding you want, you may want those materials returned.  This becomes especially important if you have entrusted the planner with a family heirloom or something of a sentimental nature [i.e., letters between newlyweds, wedding gifts, etc.].  To protect yourself further, it is best to have this expressly stated when possible.  While it might seem obvious that property of the bride and groom be returned upon the end of the wedding, it may not be quite so obvious to the wedding planner.

   Section 10 General Provisions  Generally, these provisions reflect common contract language, so while they may sound technical, they are typical provisions with simple purposes.

   Section 10(a) Notices  Insert the address where you wish any correspondence to be delivered.

   Section 10(b) Waiver and Amendment  This provision simply states that neither party can ignore nor dismiss any part of this agreement.  Furthermore, any change must be in writing and signed by both parties.

   Section 10(c) Entire Agreement  This provision states that the agreement contains everything that matters.  Unfortunately, just including this provision doesnt mean that a planner might not try arguing that there are other enforceable promises which exist, but it does provide you with additional protections from such claims. 

   Section 10(d) Severability  This provision is designed to protect the terms of the agreement even if one part is later deemed invalid.  

   Section 10(e) Governing Law Please insert the applicable state in the blank provided.

   Section 10(f) No Representations  This is meant to ensure that the wedding planner understands that any and all terms are contained in this agreement, and that he/she should NOT rely on any other representation or understanding regarding the relationship or services to be performed.  

   Section 10(g) Counterparts/Electronic Signatures  Sounds complicated, but really all this mean is that even if parties sign the agreement in different locations, or use some electronic medium to convey their signature (e.g. via fax), it will all be considered part of the same agreement.  This is a nod to modern times, where parties are often not even in the same city, much less the same room, as well as the widespread use of technology to deliver documents back and forth.

This document can provide a clear and mutual understanding of the terms of the agreement, as well as helping to set realistic expectations by both parties, and answering questions at the outset.  All of this, as well as implementing the tips provided, can help to minimize problems.  And when it comes to your wedding, you want to do everything you can to ensure youre your special day is as wonderful as it can be.

This provision does not apply to refund/cancellation policies for individual vendors, which should be clearly designated in the contracts entered into with those individual vendors.]
