2. Make a List Of Your Key Suppliers

Now that the venue, date and budget have been taken care of, start by making a list of the essential vendors that will be needed. These include the photographer, videographer, caterer, florist, decorator, band or DJ and a wedding planner if you choose to go with one. It is best to consider researching these suppliers first. Since a big chunk of your budget will go to these vendors, it is recommended to book them first.

The most feasible way of finding these suppliers would be to go by word of mouth. Ask your family, friends and relatives for suggestions. You might have friends who must have gotten married, asking them for referrals is a sure-shot way of finding trustworthy vendors that have experience.

3. List Your Requirements

As you start shortlisting your vendors, it is important to give thought to what you expect from each of your chosen suppliers.

Start by making a list of requirements for each vendor based on your wants and needs. For example, you might want a photographer to click candid style pictures at your wedding or a planner that has experience of a particular number of years. Knowing your priorities will help you streamline your research and will make the process easier and faster.

4. Do Your Research Both Offline and Online

Extensive research can help in bringing you one step closer to finding the right suppliers for your special day. Browse bridal magazines, wedding blogs, wedding articles and social media to know more about the local suppliers in your area. Make sure you check out their galleries and testimonials from previous weddings and other events to get an idea about their quality of work. If the vendor you like owns their own business and would like to delegate work to other people for your wedding, be sure to get their details as well. You can also explore a few wedding expos and fairs to connect with other vendors or suppliers!

5. Ask Questions

As and when you meet the wedding suppliers, don’t be afraid to ask questions! Be clear in stating your needs and wants including your style, priorities and budget. Discuss anything that you might not be clear about, ask each supplier to talk you through their process and contract.

When it comes to wedding suppliers, you’ll be spending more one-on-one time with (such as your photographer, planner or celebrant), an initial consultation is always a good idea. It’s important to choose suppliers you genuinely get along with, so take the time to chat on the phone or meet up for a coffee to find people you feel relaxed and comfortable with.
