He took the time to get a ring and planed how to ask for your hand in marriage. The mood was set, he popped the question, and then came the excitement! There will be a wedding! You get to bring all of your friends and family to one place for the biggest occasion of your life. You get to be treated like a queen and have more fun then you could possibly imagine. Your separate families now become one! You can’t believe how lucky you are that you’re about to marry the love of your life and planning the ultimate party to celebrate with the people you both love.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? Well, anyone who has planned a wedding and those of us professionals within the wedding industry know that it can easily become one of the most stressful things you will ever do. The nightmares begin a few months prior to the big day of everything imaginable going wrong. Then you can’t seem to get a hold of important vendors that are supposed to be providing their services for your big day. Maybe some of them even start creating unnecessary stress by changing their policies or procedures. What if they have simply gone out of business? Sounds dreadful doesn’t it? Well not as dreadful as things actually going wrong on the big day and leaving those lasting memories that will haunt you for longer than you would imagine.
Well, here are two great tips to help you be stress free and avoid unnecessary nightmares.
1. Invest Your Time in finding the perfect vendors for your big day!
You cannot get to know what a company is like simply by asking them their price. Do your research, read reviews, and schedule an official meeting. Don’t pigeonhole yourself in to only selecting a wedding professional that is under a certain price point. You may be missing out on the best day of your life by merely saving a little bit in one area of your budget. If the wedding professional is worth it and can alleviate the unnecessary stress but is a few dollars more than you planned, you may just want to adjust your budget. The only way to find out who is perfect for your big day is to invest your time and meet with as many professionals as you can. Meeting with your prospective vendors is the most important way to weed out those that may look good on paper but are unprofessional and may cause you nightmares.
What to look for: Do they have a good reputation among other vendors? What are their accomplishments? Do they avoid meeting you? Do they show up late to the meeting or reschedule last minute? How are they dressed for this meeting? Pay attention to demeanor and body language. Are they meeting you at an official meeting place? Have they prepared a presentation to cover all of the questions you may have or may have not even thought of? How long have they been in business? What do they say about other vendors in their respective fields? Most importantly do they care about what your needs are and want to fit the overall view you have for your big day?
Official Wedding Planners know suggestions to make on who and what would be perfect for your big day. Make sure you do your research on the wedding planner as well in order to ensure they have a valued professional opinion. We aren’t saying to hire your cousin or best friend to be your “Wedding Planner”. If you are able to do it, hire an official wedding planner for your big day. Not only will they know the right vendors to choose, they will also take care of handling all of the unnecessary stress that may arise during the planning process and even on the big day. A real wedding planner will also be able to save money within your budget because they already have established relationships with professional vendors.
