I have 2 major vendors. One is the decorator/florist. Another is the owner of the company that will handle my dj/photobooth/photo/video. I have other vendors such as the Mc, and the day of coordinator that I haven’t met with yet either. My wedding is 5 weeks away. I’ve been waiting patiently because all year I’ve been texting them back and forth and maybe I annoy them. So I haven’t contacted them for awhile thinking they will contact me when they need. it’s getting close now: Are they going to contact me soon? Or should I be the one having to contact them again? I’m so frustrated with these vendors. They take forever to answer a text and I just want to get everything done now.
You are definitely supposed to have an update meeting with your vendors. The sooner the better in case they need to make changes for you.
I agree with PP. You should call or email to set up a final meeting to go over details. I'm not sure if they told you that texting was their preferred method of contact. I haven't texted one of my vendors. I prefer email because there is a very clear chain of communication to reference. I hope that you get your meetings scheduled!
I haven’t meet any of my vendors; everything has been email/phone. I meet my officiant today at rehearsal and everyone else tomorrow on the big day. Call them if you have questions but if not I would wait till you are a bit closer for finalizing everything.
Stop texting and CALL them! I didn’t hire any of my vendors without meeting them first but I guess I’m more traditional....at least I know who I am contracted with and know they’re all good people that communicate well.
The only vendors that I have not met yet are the rental company doing the draping and chairs and my officiant. However I have had telephone conversations with them both. I don't think those are people I really NEED to meet with in person. I've emailed pictures of the draping I want, etc. However, I am sure they will be more in contact with me the closer the date gets. 5 weeks is still a lot of time for vendors though, because they likely have 4 other weddings they are working on still before yours. If you want to meet them in person I would call or email to set up a meeting in a few weeks to finalize everything.
