Choose wisely, suppliers can make all the difference. More than creativity or price tag, choose a supplier who is flexible, flexible with design and ideas but also with communication and personality. You’ve probably found photographers and designers you love in your inspiration collection, contact them, get recommendations and never be afraid to interview someone before you get them on your side as a part of your wedding day crew.
Finding quotes is often where people begin the journey and in my experience this is a big mistake. It causes stress and unnecessary anxiety created by the overhanging uncertainty “will I be able to get everything I want” rather than approaching a (flexible supplier) and saying this is what I want how can we make it work within my limitations.
Make lists, ask for recommendations and don’t expect this step to take a day, it’s going to take longer. You’ll probably have to deal with Skype interviews, coffee dates, venue visits and disappointment. Keep your inspiration board handy, know the priority order of your limitation’s lists and be prepared to say no.
