You’ve got the ring and celebrated the engagement, and now it’s time to plan your dream wedding. You may be wondering where you should start, how do you choose, and where do you look? It can be overwhelming, but below are some tips for how to choose your wedding vendors, the right wedding ones for you (and with ease).
LOOK AT THEIR PORTFOLIOS
Make sure you look through their portfolio before deciding to contact them, ensuring the vendors can do what you’re dreaming of. Be sure to browse a little… have they created bouquets in the style you like? Do they design invitations that you drool over? Does their work align with your vision? If not, pass and move on to the next, or be willing to give them extra direction to make sure they can help you achieve your dream wedding.
READ THEIR REVIEWS
Choosing the right wedding vendors requires you to read the reviews. They will tell you everything you’ll need and want to know. If past clients of theirs are not happy, chances are you won’t be either. Are they impossible to get in touch with? Do they show up as expected? These are the types of things to look for in a review, as well as the praises. Equally, do their good reviews align with what you’re looking for?
SET UP CONSULTATIONS TO LEARN MORE
Setting up a consultation with some of your potential vendor choices is a great way to see if it’s a good fit and choose the right one. On this call, you’re able to ask questions, learn about their services, and see if you click with them and their business practices. When vendors are a fantastic fit with their clients, it creates absolute MAGIC.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE A GOOD PERSONALITY MATCH
You want to make sure you enjoy working with each and every one of your vendors. You’ll be in communication, often leading up to your wedding day, and for many, the day of the wedding. Some vendors will likely feel like they are a part of your wedding party by the end of the day. Your photographer, planner, and cinematographer will be with you all day. Make sure they’re the type of people you will enjoy having by your side. You’ll want to enjoy your vendors for their work and also as people. Enjoying them will make the experience leading up and on the day so much more enjoyable
