Before you book your venue and your vendors, talk to the pros! Maybe its a coordinator, or perhaps its a DJ or photographer you trust. Either way, the people that you’ll learn the most from, and from whom you’ll get the best advice are people that have the most experience working at venues and with other vendors.
I will not try to mislead you into thinking that some vendors and venues do not have their “favorites”, after all, that is why venues and Coordinators create ‘Preferred Vendor Lists’. That being said, however, don’t ever be afraid to ask specific questions about the vendor or venue you are thinking about hiring! 99% of vendors will be completely honest with you when asked specific questions about a venue or vendor!
Be sure to take your time and don’t let yourself be rushed into making a decision about the most important day of your life!
