Planning a wedding isn’t a one-man job. From the photography, to the venue, to music, and more, you need vendors to help take care of things. When it comes to choosing and hiring wedding vendors, there are a lot of things to consider, because your vendors will play an important role in the wedding coming together. We have listed the most common mistakes couples make when hiring wedding vendors.
- Forgetting About Your Budget
Your budget is one of the most important factors to consider when hiring a vendor. Create a budget broken down into categories and specific vendors. This will make it easy to hire a vendor that fits that budget and provides the services you need.
- Not Checking the Venues Approved Vendor List
Some wedding venues have approved vendors that can work in that venue. This can help some couples narrow down their search. But for couples who already have a particular vendor in mind, can be a problem. Be sure to ask your venue if they have an approved vendor list and if they are willing to create exceptions in case they do.
- Not Researching Your Vendors
Before hiring vendors, make sure you see what others are saying about them. Check out reviews, their websites (if there’s one), and the previous weddings or events they covered.
- Not Meeting the Vendor
It is crucial to talk with your vendors before hiring them. You should ask your wedding vendors questions to ensure they are right for you. Speak with your vendors, build a relationship with them, and ensure you’re on the same page.
