Q: Why should I hire a wedding planner?─Pingkan Prawitasari, Tangerang

Q: How can I tell if I hired the right planner?─Ankatama Ruyatna, Jakarta
A: The right planner should be the one you are comfortable to communicate and consult with. Right from the start, you should feel the chemistry between you and the planner. They should always be helpful and work for
your vision, not theirs.
Q: How can you help me to decide on vendor selection? ─Nurul Ulfa, Balikpapan

Q: What are the wedding trends of the moment? ─Janet Anindita, Bali

Q: Can I still have the creative control of the planning process?─Melissa Iskandar, Bandung
