    I’d go with either B or D – choose the person you are most comfortable with and who *gets* you and your ideas.

    Have you asked B whether rentals are included in the price? Also, for rentals, is it just little things that you’re talking about, or full-on tents and furniture? 

    Also, will you be doing the partial or full option? It’s just that the difference between full planning of B and D is huge – so that’s also something to consider.

    I wouldn’t be too concerned about what decor items she has in her inventory. Since you’re getting married in a historic house, you’re going to have to rent tables, chairs, linens, etc  (stuff wedding planners don’t have) and you might be able to get a few decor items thrown in from the rental company. I would focus on hiring the person you get along with best and who has connections to the reputable vendors. Also, someone who responds to you in a timely manner! My planner writes/calls me back within 24 hours, it would drive me crazy if I had to wait any longer than that.

    Yes, communication is super important! You definitely don’t want to be paying money to a person who you can never get a hold of, or who makes you feel like more than one email a week is way too much.

    I didn’t have a full planner, but I had a DOC and she was worth her weight in gold! I picked B. I think it’s really important to “mesh” with your planner both personality wise and vision wise. Professionalism and organization is always a top priority. You really need to be able to trust this person to get everything done on wedding day. And you need to be comfortable with this person. That’s what I based my decision on.

    MrsHistory-Bee:  So planner B absolutely isn’t willing to offer something between Day-of and full planning? That just seems weird to me. Our planner and the other two I interviewed were all willing to work out a package that worked best for our specific needs. But I’m not sure if any of them included rentals, we wanted a planner because our wedding is 6 hours away from us, but decor was one of our lowest concerns and we weren’t trying to rent tents or anything. Between C, D, and E, I’d go with D, because you like her, and I think that’s HUGE. Liking your planner can reduce wedding stress so much!
