I’m sitting at Panera near a wedding planner and a client of hers, working on things for a client of mine (waiting for a friend to wake up. Context: it’s almost 4.)
The conversation I’m hearing doesn’t sound extremely professional. The planner sounds like she’s been involved in about 2, maybe 3 weddings. And maybe I’m way off base here, or maybe she’s doing this as a favor to a good friend, but I just have a feeling that this bride will have to recap everything they’ve talked about.
Do yourself a favor: if you’re using a planner, make sure the planner can communicate effectively and look through the planner’s portfolio to make sure their style matches yours.
