When you set out to plan your perfect wedding and have already secured a venue, you must start out by picking the right wedding vendors for your big day!
Couples typically average hiring 14 vendors for a wedding day.
You need to understand the impact of picking the wrong vendors and how it will influence the entire day. Make sure that communications between you and your vendors are very clear to ensure that your big day runs smoothly.
Hiring an inexperienced planner or one that does not perform the basic tasks that are required for a seemless wedding can be detrimental to your big day!
Having great food is important when picking your catering vendor but it is not always the most important. Again, it is all about communication. Confirm that the catering staff numbers are appropriate based on your guest count and that they dress appropriate for your event. The catering team should arrive in ample time to set up properly and they should always bus tables to maintain a
clean environment for the guests and the photographer capturing your wedding day.
Your DJ is the voice and ring leader of your event, so he or she plays a very important role in your big day. Searching their social media pages for content showing previous events is key to finding out if you like their style none the less. Your venue and planner can guide you on this important choice.
There are many decisions to be made during the stages of planning. When it comes to selecting the right wedding vendors, making a final decision should come from your own research. Ask your venue staff for insight. Word of mouth goes a long way. Additionally, a basic gut feeling is equally important. Do not simply reflect from the vendor’s price point. After all, vendors are not all the same. Trust us when we say that!
After two years and over two hundred bookings, we realized that it is not in the best interest of the client nor a working business model for our venue to allow just anyone to work at White Oaks.
