There’s great info on planners here: 


There are all kinds of planning organizations our there that certify planners.  The main one I’ve heard of is the Assoc. of Bridal Consultants. 

Certification is a good thing to have, but I think the bottom line is the planners personality and whether they immediately click with you and can translate your "vision". 

I think brides often choose the wrong planner who aboslutely doesn’t get what you want.  Take the time to interview a few, and call their references…talk to their previous clients and look at their wedding day pictures.  It’ll be a strong indication as to whether they are familiar with producing the event you’re looking for.

I think the best planner to pick is not the one who has "the name" or is the most popular, but is the one you feel the most comfortable with.  Obviously, money will have some influence on who you can hire and what services you can request. 

You can look for certifications but just a word of caution.  Sometimes a certification doesn’t mean anything except that the planner paid money to some group and now can say they are certified.  I would look for someone who has experience and understands how you want your wedding day. 


Don’t be afraid to ask potentail planners for a "game plan" of how they would manage and handle your wedding.  A good planner should be able to answer your questions.
