Researching vendors in the early wedding planning stages can be very overwhelming. Whether you are working with a planner or going the DIY route, it’s important to lean on others for help, specifically vendors themselves.
ASK VENDORS FOR REFERRALS – THEY KNOW THE INDUSTRY BEST!
For example, if you find your florist first, find out who they have a professional working relationship with. Don’t be afraid to ask for their recommendations as they know the industry best. Similarly, your venue or wedding planner or coordinator will have preferred vendors they work with and can get the job done.
It’s important to remember that different vendors cater to different tastes and budgets, so once you receive referrals it’s best to schedule meetings with each of them to see what feels right for you before narrowing it down.
