I've met with two wedding planners and I can't decide which one to pick. The first is a little less experienced (and cheaper), but very nice. The second one has a great reputation, but during the meeting she kept on trying to steer my ideas away from what I wanted to what's in right now. People say that she puts on beautiful events, but I wasn't thrilled with our first interaction. Who should I choose? Kassia, Miami, FL
The importance of rapport between you and your wedding planner cannot be underestimated. Your wedding planner, especially if they will be planning the entire event, is representing you and is tasked with creating your vision. During the stressful wedding planning process, the last thing you want is to be annoyed. Often wedding planners will try and steer brides away from ideas that they feel are not realistic for the venue or will not be as successful as the bride may envision. However, they should want to stay as close as possible to what your dream wedding looks like, not what they've seen lately on blogs. Go with your gut. If you feel like the more experienced planner wasn't trying to accommodate you, go with the other one.
