Hello from IWA Team,
Here’s a quick Q and A on topics relating to Wedding Vendors
What are some tips for selecting Vendors?
Selecting vendors and negotiating with vendors is very important to not only make a perfect wedding day, but to also make the entire wedding experience satisfying and smooth. The number one criteria is to make sure you feel comfortable around that vendor. Do you feel relaxed when they call and speak to you or do you feel tense and defensive. If the latter is the case, then you probably need to use a different vendor. You want a vendor that is organized and timely. Do they return your phone calls in a timely fashion? Do they give you the information you request as they promised. Also, if possible, find out what other bookings they had possible. We worked with one wedding decorator that had booked herself for three weddings on the weekend of our event! Needless to say, she wasn’t great to work with and behaved like a nightmare the day of the event as she was stretched too thin.
Dealing with Wedding Vendors
When talking to a vendor, don’t hesitate to ask them all the questions you want. Only if their responses are convincing should you sign on the dotted line. Take notes during consultations; ensure that everything that’s agreed upon is given in writing. This way, there’s less room for miscommunication and last-minute unpleasantness Do get your lawyer to go through the fine print, so you can hold them to account should things not pan out quite right.
Choosing Wedding Vendors
It’s tough deciding whether to opt for a large vendor who has an extensive clientele and may take you for granted or a smaller company who might work harder to impress, but may not have what it takes to handle exigencies. Why not a well-established company to take on the big stuff like catering and transport and a smaller organization for details like wedding cakes, bouquets and table floral arrangements?
Choosing the right caterer
Whether it’s the traditional wedding feast items or a contemporary menu for pre- and post-wedding bashes, food is a vital aspect of the wedding. Your caterer should be able to see eye-to-eye with you while planning menus. Once you’ve shortlisted some sample menus, the caterer should invite the family members for tasting sessions. Some caterers invite potential clients to weddings they are handling for a firsthand impression of their proficiency.
