Building your team of wedding vendors is an important part of planning your wedding. If you are like most, you have dreamed about this moment for a while and want every minute of it to be picture perfect. These tips should help you build the ultimate team of wedding vendors to make your dream wedding come true.
Finding Wedding Vendors
In a world of internet, finding a plethora of wedding vendors is not a challenge. However, not just anyone will do. You would not want to hire a photographer that is just taking up a hobby or a deejay that has never serviced a wedding. When building your team of wedding vendors, consider talent, experience and services. The safest place to find your team of vendors is at your wedding venue. Most wedding venues have a preferred list of trusted vendors. Create a list, do your research and interview your candidates.
Create Your List of Wedding Vendors
Begin by creating your list of wedding vendors. Imagine how you want your wedding day. Do you want a live band or a deejay? Many couples are choosing a deejay for the ability to maintain a continuous and heightened vibe with a unique playlist of music that cross-fades into the mix without space. An experienced deejay will drive the momentum on your dance floor with a customized playlist, immersive sound and light effects, and be able to create an interactive experience. Some couples prefer the ambiance created by live musicians and the authentic feel of real instruments in an acoustic space. Think about the fine dining experience you want to deliver and the type of cuisine you want to serve. The average wedding has 14 wedding vendors. Make your unique list based on the experiences you want to create.
Research Your Wedding Vendors
Before hiring wedding vendors, do your research. Visit their website, look for reviews online and flip through gallery pages for examples of work. Actually read the reviews and ratings. Keep in mind that a negative review does not necessarily represent the vendor. Some couples take to the internet to vent about their unique situations that might not apply to others. Always look to see how the wedding vendors respond to negative comments and weigh out the facts of the individual circumstances that might not be of any fault of the wedding vendors.
Think About Your Style
Think about your style and the dream event you seek to create. Envision the photographs you will hang on your wall and that will fill your albums. Would you prefer traditional wedding photography and classic shots, a photojournalism style that tells your story, illustrative images or portraiture? Think about your style of music, the creation of your wedding vows, the customs that will be part of your ceremony and your grand entrance and exit. Every service is provided by wedding vendors with a unique style. Once you have a good list, make contact with the wedding vendors for interviews. Make a list of questions that you will ask your potential vendors and take notes during your conversations.
