1. RESEARCH WEDDING VENDOR REFERRALS. Be careful here because many wedding vendors trade referrals with other wedding professionals with no real knowledge of the other’s work. They make deals with partner vendors to give out business cards to brides and grooms that they meet. Many times it’s an honest referral based upon working a few weddings with one another. But how much can a DJ, for example, really know about the quality of a wedding photographer’s work? Often times this type of referral is just based on the fact that the DJ has worked with the photographer at a number of events and liked him or her. Did the DJ ever see the final result? Did they see the wedding album? Probably not. Be https://weselnetrendy.pl/ sure when receiving this type of referral you ask the vendor why they are making the referral and the criteria they are using. Then check their story out with the vendor they referred. Obviously, you should try to obtain other referrals especially from married couples who have experience with the referred vendor.
2. DON’T CHOOSE A WEDDING PROFESIONAL BASED SOLELY ON A “GREATEST HITS” PORTFOLIO OF THEIR WORK. This rule particularly applies to choosing your photographer, videographer, florist or caterer. As a wedding photographer myself I can assure you that there is nothing more misleading regarding a photographer’s talent than looking at a sample wedding album that is a compilation of their best shots at a 100 different weddings. Ask to be shown an album of one entire wedding from start to finish. Virtually anybody with a decent camera can get one great shot per wedding! The same goes for florists.
Make sure that they show you examples of the flowers they provided for one entire wedding. Any caterer can give you some yummy appetizers to sample, but how many different dishes do they offer? Can they show you photos of one entire food service at a wedding? Again, the challenge for a vendor at a wedding is doing EVERYTHING right, not just 1 or 2 things.
3. CAREFULLY ASSESS THE PERSONALITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL WHO WILL BE HANDLING YOUR WEDDING. This is a very important point that is often overlooked. You will be spending most of your day with your photographer, DJ, wedding coordinator or videographer. It’s not enough that they are good at what they do. Make sure you can get along with this person and find them pleasant to be around. Rude and bossy photographers can cause problems with your guests and make your day miserable. A DJ will be interacting with many people at your wedding including you. Make sure he or she is friendly and easy to get along with.
