We often hear horror stories about wedding professionals who didn’t follow through with their promises on the wedding day. What we don’t hear is that most brides eventually admit that they are partly to blame in these types of situations. Most wedding day catastrophes happen because of lack of communication. The purpose of today’s post is to teach you how to work with wedding professionals.
Do your homework
Most wedding professionals are talented and trustworthy but there are still wedding businesses you should avoid. The key to finding the right professionals is as simple as doing a little bit of homework.
When you meet with a professional ask them if you can see their portfolio. Looking at their past work will give you a good idea if they fit the job description. Look online for ratings and reviews that have been left by their past customers.
Communication is essential
Once you have hired a wedding professional make sure they know exactly what you want. Sit down and discuss every detail of your wedding. It’s always safe to include even small details in a written contract. The more time you spend with your wedding professionals the better. Frequently discuss the progress of the wedding arrangements.
Ask questions and take advice
Remember that wedding professionals have valuable experience. If you have never planned a wedding, ask questions about what to expect. Present your ideas and ask how to make them even better. Your professionals will know how to help you stay within your budget. Be willing to change your plans if you can’t afford what you are asking for.
Don’t be a bridezilla!
Every wedding professional has stories about working with bridezilla’s. They never have good things to say. Most wedding professionals try to avoid bridezilla’s at all costs. If you are open to suggestions, kind and easy to work with then wedding professionals will go the extra mile to make your wedding memorable.
