Have you thought about the relationship you should have with your vendors?
There are different levels of relationships that you will have across that board. When you think about it…who will you be spending most of your time with?
Each vendor is important, however think about the time and expectations that you have for your vendors and realize that it is important to mesh well with them all especially your planner/coordinator, photographer and videographer. The florist receives your vision before hand and executes to your expectations. The stationery design company brings your vision to light on paper. When you think about the roles each play and logistics there are the many things to think about.
Consider the vendors whom are there for the entire day…don’t hire them at last minute, this should be a top priority vendor and listen to their response to your style and envision them on your day. After meeting with at least two to select from in each category review mental notes with you fiancé and determine if they will make the team for your wedding or special event.
