Before the Deal with Wedding Vendors

To find wedding vendors that fit is usually quite time-consuming for the partner. Starting from the lurking account-account Instagram, blogwalking, read a review in the forum, until finally an appointment to meet to ensure compatibility with the vendor. That's why some people argue that the process of choosing a vendor  and there needs to be chemistry. Well, if you're looking for wedding vendors and still undecided whether it is suitable or not, try to check in here. Whether the vendor has met the following requirements to meet the expectations of you?

Before the Deal with Wedding Vendors

1. The Conversation Disconnected
When you explain a concept that is desirable, whether he understand and provide input important for you? If yes, it means he's got one plus the value. Important, you know, the perception when talking about the concept. It is better if our tastes could be captured well by the vendor.

2. Open About His Services
Do any of you ask about the specifications of the products or services, can be answered satisfactorily? Do not be easily satisfied with the answers floating from the vendor. It could be because the vendor was not sure what he has or what he can. Make sure your questions can be answered satisfactorily and make you calm down turn over this important moment with her.

3. Easy To Be Contacted
When contacted via email, phone, or SMS, good vendors is to provide response quickly. We must also understand, anyway, if they are busy. So, don't be so impatient also. To email, one to two days may be tolerated. But if he's difficult on the phone especially if the phone number changes often, wow, you must be vigilant, brides. Don't want to, is it, in urgent circumstances, for example in the day, he is difficult to contact?

4. Portfolio Is Easily Searchable
Today, the portfolio of the most accessible looks like your account Instagram and website, yes? Well, the vendor with the social media accounts and website are always in-update periodically is certainly a value. We so know what course he had ever made and many of the references provided. For most brides-to-be, this is even so one of the things that shows that these vendors keep up the same trend-the latest trends, you know. If the vendor is not too active in social media or the website, at least she's quick response and provide its portfolio via email if requested.

5. Give The Chance A Trial
Agreed, right, that we should try it first services before using it? Vendors caterer should give the opportunity to test the food, so did the vendors makeup should give a test makeup. Try vendor makeup is usually no fee certain that you haven't deal. But, this is precisely very important because the results of the makeup in the photo we see are very probably already past the editing process here and there.

Then, how about the vendors of photography? See the sample albums he had ever made, note the quality of color print-an picture, as well as the quality of the paper or material of the album that he provided. 

Well, when vendors already give the opportunity a trial and you are satisfied with the result, that means he fit in with you.


1. Dominate Ideas
You tell the concept is desirable but the vendors even commented tilted even attempt to change it? Well, it could be a deduction of points. For example, when you want makeup that is flawless but the MUA even commented, “Don't be, whose name the wedding is usually also should be populated with dong.” Or, when you want to make the concept of pre-wedding photo which is casual while the vendors of the photograph insists on asking you the photo of stylish glamour.

If what he suggest much of a desire you, should not be forwarded. Anyway, cooperation with vendors like that is certainly not comfortable, right?

2. Didn't Have A Contract Obviously
Want to however, a letter contract or proof of payment it's important, you know. Some vendors like to postpone or buying him the making of a contract can actually be categorized he was less professional. This document is very important and you should save as proof. A contract that well also explain things such as how payment process, how policy if there is a cancellation, and what exactly be the responsibility of the vendor and the bride and groom.

Don't want to, right, there are things that changed from that agreed at the end of the wedding preparations?


3. Different Style
When they want to make the theme of the party pool, for example, will certainly be too risky when you deal with vendors that specialist is the traditional wedding. If there is a portfolio when he decorates the outdoor wedding and you're like, the heck, not a problem. If he has never been? This is too risky. Or, choose a wedding band specialists the orchestra to play the strains of acoustic songs at the outdoor wedding themed casual.

So also with vendor photos. The style of editing the photos from the photographer one and the other will be very different. And not all vendors can be forced to change the style according to your request, you know. So, it would be more secure if you choose a vendor that has style accordingly.

4. Receiving Too Many Orders
Ask how the event, which he received in one day. If these vendors receive up to five receptions in the morning time until lunch, you have to ask in more detail. If that vendor does have a lot of team and you are willing given the team anywhere, maybe it doesn't matter.

But if not, you should find out you are in order to how and think about accuracy of time.

5. His Words Change
In preparing the wedding, we need something for sure, isn't it? Price changes although only the Rp1000 per one shops, for example, could have an impact on the budget that has been prepared. Well, if you got the information that fickle about the price or specifications of the services, especially when that change comes from different people in one team, you better think again. Unless, he can give the letter of the contract is complete as to every detail of specifications, price, and terms if there is a change of the contract.
