Couples who are ready to tie the knot will need to decide on many things from wedding rings down to wedding favours to hand over to their guests. With many vendors available in the market, it might be confusing when choosing a vendor! Here are some tips to help couples help make up their mind.
Do they suit your budget?
Today there are several vendors in the market. Some offer one service, while others different services under one roof. However, it boils down to the budget. Yes, the price does matter for most couples! Always choose a vendor that offers the required service within the set budget. See what options they have to offer and don’t be afraid to bargain where possible.
Where are they located?
If a chosen vendor is located very far, there might be extra travel costs involved for both you and the vendor. You might also want to consider other risks. A classic example is if the wedding photographer has travel problems on your big day and cannot get in time to the venue. As a result, you run behind schedule or miss important moments that must be caught on camera.Be sure to have a backup plan or make additional arrangements if you must choose a vendor located out of town.
Do they offer a personalised service?
Selecting a vendor that offers both a friendly and professional service is a must! For example, in the case of the hired professional photographers team, the couple should be relaxed and comfortable around them to get the best and most natural looking snaps.Couples should gauge for the first impression and establish a good rapport at the first meeting with the vendor. If you do not establish this in the first meeting, then it is advisable to look elsewhere. Reading reviews on websites or speaking to previous customers of the vendor can also help couples to make their mind-up, before the first meeting. Check this website to find out more details.
Don’t be afraid!
If something is not right or if you have changed your mind or your instincts tell you otherwise, do not be afraid to walk away! In some cases, vendors are known to ask for a deposit towards their services provided. Weigh the pros and cons of losing the deposit Vs finding another vendor. It is always best to discuss your problem with your service provider. They may be able to help you. After all, it is your big day and word of mouth from a happy customer will also mean more business for the vendor!
