Many factors can affect a wedding, such as the vendors. You’ll be entrusting them to provide a gorgeous wedding cake, beautiful decoration of flowers, lively entertainment, delicious food, and many other items depending upon your budget and wedding location. If the thought of finding vendors for your wedding has you feeling lost and overwhelmed, the following list of resources should help you find them, said some event planners from the team building companies.
Turn to your married friends, co-workers and relatives for unbiased reviews of product suppliers and event service providers in your area. If you know someone who is involved with charitable functions or corporate meetings, they can definitely be a good resource for referring trusted vendors who may also provide wedding services. Ask them about their past experiences, who they booked, and what they recommend you consider when evaluating vendors.
The best part about bridal shows is that you get to meet with a lot of potential vendors and take a look at many wedding related products at a single location. Vendors for many types of products and services will be there, which can be very educational in helping you gather information and inspiration. Do note however that there are many quality vendors who don’t attend these shows.Find local bridal publications and directories, which will have quite a few advertisers. These can be a great way to initially identify choices in your area, and you can narrow the vendors down after looking at their websites and online galleries.
The Internet is of course one of your best resources for looking up vendors and getting a feel for the quality and style of their work. An established vendor should have a professional looking site and several images of their products or services. The content of their websites can also tell you quite a bit about their services, pricing and experience before scheduling a consultation.
Wedding consultants have many longstanding relationships with local vendors. If you are working with a planner or consultant, they can always provide you with a list of vendors or request quotes directly on your behalf. Consultants can often negotiate reduced pricing from certain vendors as well, which can help offset their coordination fees in many cases.
