Choosing Your Wedding Vendors - Some Tips

Oct 9, 2007
You will certainly approach some wedding vendors when you are planning for your big day. Different trades in the wedding industry will be involved. Without any surprise, there are some people in the industry who are considered dishonest and they may try to take advantages of the couples. As a result, you should be very careful when you are dealing with the wedding vendors.

It is always wise to sign a contract with the vendor unless it is only an item which involves only a very small amount of money. All the services to be provided, as well as the obligations will be included in the contract. Before signing it, you need to read all the terms and conditions carefully. Ask for clarification when you find any part of the contract unclear. This is done in order to avoid unnecessary arguments between you and the vendor. The contract can protect both the vendor and you. In most cases the vendor will ask you to sign a contract with them without your request.

You will also need to ask if there is any overtime charges. This is especially important for your wedding reception venue. They may charge you a lot of money if your wedding runs overtime. By asking for the surcharges involved beforehand you can avoid any misunderstanding between you and the staff of the reception venue. This will also help you to have a better control over your wedding budget. You will most probably need to pay for extra if your wedding runs overtime. As a result you need to reserve some budget in case you really need to pay for the overtime surcharges.

Besides the surcharges of running overtime, there may also be surcharges if you cancel an order. Again you have to ask clearly if there is any penalties for cancellation of order. To this end you may also consider a wedding insurance so that you can prepared for a case that you have to cancel your wedding for some reason. However, details about wedding insurance is out of the scope of this article and as a result we will not go into detail about that. In most cases your commitment will be the deposit if you cancel an order but there is no definite rule about that so it will be wiser to ask the vendors for clarifications.

Lastly, you need to be careful of anything offers that are too good to be true. Sometimes you may find really good deal. For example someone order some wedding invitations and cancel the order. In this case the wedding invitation company may try to sell the stock they have on hand half of the original price. However, the vendor will certainly advise you the reason for such good deals. If the vendor offer you extremely good offers without any reason, you should be careful. The wedding vendor may just try to cheat you by using such fake offers. You should try to compare the services and prices of different vendors before you make any decision so that you will not be cheated.
