Your Wedding Vendors are the Key to a Beautiful Big Day

Choosing wedding vendors and wedding services for your ceremony and reception can be a daunting task. Finding the best vendors that fit into your budget takes time. Your first choices may already be booked. And you may not even be sure what the wedding of your dreams looks like yet. But every successful wedding day is the result of a team of professionals working together to take a couple's vision and turn it into reality. Don't think of researching and interviewing wedding vendors as a chore. Instead, think of it as the first step in your wedding planning journey - and one of the most important steps overall.

When to Start Searching for Wedding Vendors & Services

Even if you're still not sure what you want the look and feel of your Big Day to be, the right time to start your vendor search is now. Trustworthy and talented wedding vendors and wedding service providers can actually help you refine your wedding vision and guide you as you choose the colors, flavors, and sweet little extras that will make your wedding unique and memorable.

Which Wedding Vendors to Book First

As you book wedding services and wedding vendors, your first choices will eventually have an impact on your future ones. For instance, if you choose to work with a wedding planner then your Big Day may end up looking quite different from what you initially envisioned (while being exactly what you never knew you wanted).

In general, you should hire your wedding planner or coordinator and book your wedding venue as early as possible - at least a year in advance. If your venue doesn't have on-site catering, this is also the time to start researching your options. Next, book your photographer, videographer, and your wedding band or DJ. After that, focus on finding the perfect stylist, florist, caterer, and baker. Transportation is usually the last wedding service couples book.

How to Choose Wedding Vendors & Services

Choosing wedding vendors and services is very much about personal preference, but reputation matters and you should always trust your gut. The professionals you work with should make you feel comfortable, not stressed. Planning your wedding should be fun and exciting, and the best wedding vendors and service providers will be as enthusiastic about your Big Day as you are. Ask prospective wedding vendors plenty of questions and be confident enough to walk away if you feel overly pressured to sign a contract. Your goal should be to find wedding professionals who can guide you toward the options that make your ceremony and reception picture perfect.

When You Need to Prioritize

You'll encounter a lot of wedding budget guides that lay out how much to spend on wedding vendors, but remember that these are just recommendations. It's your wedding, and that means you can adjust your wedding budget any way you like. If top-notch photography is super important to you but you don't drink much, why not spend more on your photographer and less on the bar? Maybe you and your spouse-to-be are total foodies. In that case, spring for an amazing once in a lifetime meal and adjust a less important area of your budget accordingly.

From there, our team of experts can give you wedding ideas that incorporate the hottest trends and classic must-haves.
