It is time to talk about interviewing your wedding vendors! No doubt that you have been planning your wedding day for quite some time… You may have dreamt of it for a very long time or you may be planning your wedding with a shorter timeline. And you may have a wedding planner, a day-of coordinator or top-notch mom, sister or BFF who is helping you conquer #allthethings on your quest to plan your wedding day.
But did you know that the wedding industry is $70 Billion strong? And that there are over 300,000 vendors representing the wedding industry? So, it can be overwhelming for you (and your partner) to navigate all the options while preparing for interviewing your wedding vendors. I am writing this blog post to help you have some questions outlined ahead of time. When you interview your planner, florist, band or photographer, you will have a little checklist of questions to guide you through the process. I’ll also include some specific wedding photography questions at the end of this post as well.
Engaged couples can feel overwhelmed by all the choices so let’s start with some basic questions for interviewing your wedding vendors and then dive into photography-specific questions.
For Interviewing your wedding vendors- Photography Specific Vendors, you may want to also ask the following questions, outside of availability type questions.
With all the options for vendors and in particular – photographers on your wedding day, it can be a lot to sort through. From my perspective, I would want to know that my vendor is a good match for me. This means- I like their work, I trust their reviews and their experience. And it means that the price works well for my budget and includes my must-haves. And even more- that they have the specialty that I am looking for. Barriers to entry may be low and pricing can be tricky at best, so knowing there is solid work experience and reviews that speak for the vendor is gold! I hope that you have found these tips helpful for interviewing your wedding vendors!
