What are the qualities of a good wedding consultant?

Wedding consultants are known for saving time and money for their clients.  Some qualities to look for in a wedding consultant:
  • Experience: A good track record is usually the best guide, so check references and talk frankly with previous clients.
  • Professionalism: The consultant should understand the wedding business. 
  • Congeniality: A congenial consultant works with you: they won't pressure you into decisions you aren't comfortable making.
  • Good chemistry:  It's important that you feel comfortable with the consultant that you'll work with.  Is this someone who you'll want to spend time with? Confide in?
  • Excellent listening skills: Your consultant is going to plan your wedding. They are a good listener.
  • Courtesy: A consultant's manners may indicate how well they will work with you.  This person will be your wedding expert and will also serve as your intermediary with officiants, site managers, vendors, and even members of the wedding party.  You want to be represented positively.
