Give some tips couples should consider when looking for vendors.
- Ensure you are comfortable around the people you are booking, for example, photographers. This person will be with you during some of the most intimate moments, so it is essential to ensure compatibility.
- Review the order and confirm event details to ensure that all runs smoothly within the days leading up to an event.
- Contract vendors that match your ideas and aesthetics. They must work with you to create the vision you had in mind.
- Dare to be different. You can use different vendors than other couples, but do your research in advance.
