Do you like clients to communicate with individual suppliers, such as florists, band etc or do you prefer that all communication goes through you?
Wedding Planners Answers:
A.No, I think they should if they want. Not everybody wants to do this though; most couples seem to be fine with my advice. If they have any insecurities, I will put them into contact with the individual supplier.
A.I am happy either way. If clients have the language skills, they will often deal with some suppliers directly. For me, contracts are always drawn up between the supplier and the client directly.

A.I would highly suggest letting the planner deal with all suppliers and services as everything can go easily out of control if more people/entities are taking care of the planning.
Planning a successful wedding abroad should involve the bride, groom and their wedding planner only, with the wedding planner dealing with all suppliers and services on their behalf. (This recommendation is mainly for abroad weddings in non-english speaking countries).

A.We prefer that all communication comes through us as this way we know what is going on at all times. If people go direct then we have no way of knowing what has been discussed and therefore on the wedding day we aren’t able to make decisions without consulting the bride and groom.
