Wedding planning involves making a lot of decisions, and that can start to feel like a lot of work. But few decisions are more important than finding the key vendors for your big day. After all, these are the professionals who will be standing beside you on one of the biggest days of your life. The good news is that once you have your team assembled many of the smaller decisions will start to fall into place. Here are a few suggestions to help you find the right wedding vendors for your day, those that will share in your joy, not add to your stress!
Once Your Budget Is Set, Book Your Biggest Priorities
The first step in planning any wedding is setting a realistic budget. Once this is set, it’s helpful to prioritize what matters most to you, so that you can keep your spending on track, and make sure you have your most important vendors secured early on in the planning process.
For instance most couples begin by booking their wedding venue, and from there assemble a team accordingly. Once a location is set you can choose vendors that work nearby, and preferably ones who have worked there before. In fact, many wedding venues are happy to provide recommend vendor lists for this very reason.
Chemistry Matters Here!
In addition to finding professionals whose work you admire, it’s also important to choose people whose personalities you enjoy. This is particularly true for vendors you will be working very closely with, such as your wedding planner and photographer, and your hair and makeup artist, as well.
You want people you feel comfortable around and confident in, so you can breathe a little easier on your big day. This is why it’s best to schedule in-person meetings with potential vendors, if at all possible. If not, consider a Skype interview!
