Considerations When Selecting Your Wedding Vendors

Jul 14, 2008
It will be next to impossible for you to do everything your wedding. Will be be able to bake the wedding cake yourself? Are you going to print your wedding invitation yourself? In most cases you will not do all these yourself. To this end you will need to search for some wedding vendors to help you when you are planning for your wedding. However, a badly chosen wedding vendor can actually ruin your wedding. As a result, you should try your best to find the most suitable wedding vendors. Here are some important tips for you.

First of all, you should always sign contracts with the wedding vendors. Of course you may think that it will require you to spend more time. However, you should do it unless it is only a very small amount of money. On the contract, you will need to write down clearly what kind of services will be provided. The obligation of both of you and the wedding vendors should also be listed. Remember, you should read all the terms and conditions clearly before you really sign the contract. You will need to ask questions when necessary. You have always bear in mind that the contract is meant to be protecting both the vendor and of course you. As a matter of fact, the vendors may require you sign a contract anyway even if you do not ask for it.

Another thing you will need to ask is the overtime charges. It can be very easy for your wedding reception to be over run. In this case the wedding DJ, live band or caterer may charge you some fee for working overtime. This can lead to a serious argument if you do not ask clearly before you sign the contract. Of course some vendors may not really have overtime charges. The key here is that you have to know all the charges that may be applied. This is very important if you have a tight budget. If you know that there can be overtime charges, you will need to plan for your reception such that the possibility of over running is minimized. Otherwise your wedding will be totally out of your budget. This can be a real disaster if your budget is really tight.

There can be penalties if you cancel the order. One very practical case is that you may decide to hire another vendor after you have paid the deposit. In most cases you will not be able to get your deposit back. However, you can ask beforehand so that you will know what the penalties will be. Another possibility is that you are forced to cancel the order due to incidents such as extremely bad weather. You will need to discuss with the vendors about such occasions so that you will know the penalties. The fact is that most vendors will let you hold the order and arrange it in another day. Again, different vendors may have different policies and you should ask clearly before you sign the contract.
