Selecting Wedding Vendors

by | February 20, 2012

When preparing for the day of your dreams, your selection of the right vendors is of the utmost importance. Doing proper research on wedding vendors will make your special day go as smoothly as possible.

Plan together. The most important thing about the engagement period for a couple, is that this is the time when you’re blending two lives. Make this a learning experience and understand that part of a successful wedding, and a successful marriage, is about compromise.

Start with referrals. Ask family and friends for recommendations for the services and products you want for your wedding day. If you will be the guest at a wedding yourself, pay attention to details or vendors and ask for business cards of those doing a particularly good job.

Purchase in person when possible. Ask to see the products or pictures of items if possible. You will be investing a lot in your wedding day. Be sure things are accurately represented. When considering wedding services, such as DJ, Photography or Videography, ask to see past performance videos and client feedback.

Research vendors. There are numerous websites devoted to reviewing wedding vendors, many be real brides. Check out vendor’s online profiles at sites such as weddingwire.com and theknot.com.

Balance frugality with service. There is an old adage “that you get what you pay for”. This is true with wedding services as well. Set a wedding budget based upon your priorities. This makes it easier to stick to a budget when you are forced to make choices.

Get it in writing. Get a detailed written contract for everything. Contracts should include colors, product descriptions, prices and delivery dates. Cancellation policies should also be included.
