Planning a wedding is a big endeavor that is intimidating for many brides. Through the selection of the right vendors you can build a dream team that will, not only assist you with creating the perfect day, but will also alleviate time and stress. Our expert event planning team has put together a list of the overall top questions to guide you through selecting your vendors including florist, photographer, DJ and more to ensure your wedding day is seamless and unforgettable.
This is definitely the easiest question and the most important. Many vendors book months in advance so we highly recommend planning as far ahead as possible.
You always want to ask to see a portfolio of the vendors’ past experiences to ensure their aesthetic matches yours and that they are able to handle a wedding of your size. We also recommend calling 2-3 references to enquire about previous clients’ experiences with the vendor.
Prior to meeting with vendors know your budget allotment for each service. Review contracts closely and make sure to enquire about any additional fees as well as the payment schedule. Additionally, many vendors offer packages where you can get better deals such as purchasing a package for engagement, bridal and wedding photos from the same photographer.
4. What is their back-up plan in case of a weather issue or the vendor gets sick?
A variety of dilemmas may happen on the day-of and it’s important to know how each vendor handles situations such a rain. Additionally, if the vendor happens to get ill or has an emergency do they have a colleague that will serve as back-up?
5. What is the vendor’s day-of schedule?
It is important to know whether or not your vendor is doing multiple events the day of the wedding as well as when you can expect them at your venue. Additionally, does the vendor have an assistant who will be on-site with them the day of?
