THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - Oct. 14, 2013 - PRLog -- LOS ANGELES, CA – October 11, 2013 – Kim Ruha of Memories by Design explains, “I meet my prospective clients with the aim to make it an honest-to-goodness working meeting.  I bring along my staff so clients know the people who will be assisting me.”  Trust is an important factor between wedding planners and their clients and trust comes easier when the client knows exactly who is working on their wedding plans.  Ruha then further explains, “I also present my clients with a checklist of all the items needed for a wedding with a grand wedding having all items checked and a small, private ceremony having just a few items. The checklist will give the prospect an idea of how much work that has to be done given their time frame.”

Questions that should be discussed during this first consultation with a wedding planner in Los Angeles ( include, “How much is your budget?  What is your motif?  How many guests do you plan to have?  Do you have any special effects or surprise in mind?” says Ruha.  These questions represent the beginning stages of wedding planning.

The initial consultation should not only be looked at like a business meeting, but also a get to know each other session.  Kim says, “I try to establish rapport and chemistry with the client.  I try to make the couple talk about their compatibilities like their favorite food, favorite song, favorite color, etc.”  As mentioned earlier, trust is important, and if a wedding planner and their client have friendly relationship, trust is more likely to come about.

In this Los Angeles wedding planner’s most recent blog post, Kim Ruha states, “I would like to stress that the first meeting entails no commitment on the client.  If the couple isn’t comfortable with me, they do not have to hire me. However, they can leave the meeting with new ideas on how they can execute their wedding.”
