Exactly what she will be taking care of.

Who will take over if for some reason she can’t finish the job.

When is payment due, deposits etc

Who her preferred vendors are, is there an extra charge for NOT using a preferred vendor 

Does she work alone or have others

Is she planning another wedding at the same time.

can she get you discounts

how many weddings has she planned, what size weddings

Does she have referrals, pictures of weddings she’s done

Just a few off the top of my head that we asked ours…

*How many people are on her team? (ie, can she have someone overseeing the reception centerpieces being set up while she’s checking on you?)

* What happens if she can’t make it to the event in any way (this goes back to how many people are on her team!)

* How frequently will she be in touch with you? (some planners cap their emails/phone calls)

*Will she attend meetings with vendors for/with you?

*What factors play into her determinations to recommend vendors to you? (aka – does she always push the same florist, because she gets a kickback?)

*Does she keep you on budget? (Will she remind you that you’re going over your intended plan?)

 

Thats all I can think of at the moment! Hope it helps!
