1. Do Your Research
There are so many choices when it comes to wedding vendors. Each vendor has a different style, way of business and work ethic. Doing your research can save you tons of headaches in the long run. Check out that vendors reviews on different sites, look through their portfolio of work, and check their prices. You can use Google, Wedding Wire, the Knot, and many more sites to do your research.
2. Seek Advice from your Friends
Ask friends and even family members if they know someone that is a vendor. But not just that they know them via social media, but they have either had an experience with that person or knows them very well. Recommendations are a HUGE part of planning a wedding because in reality, who do you trust more than the words of a friend. If your friend tells you that someone is really great and they had a wonderful experience, that’s most likely the person you would pick.
