Where to start?
It can be hard to know where to start when your trying to find your wedding suppliers as a quick search in google, or on social media will bring you up a large host of suppliers all offering the same/similar services. So although it can be a great way, it can be quite a time consuming one.
Recommendations can get you off to a great start, asking friends and family who they have personally used for their wedding, and their opinions on the care and service given.
Ask your wedding venue for which suppliers they personally deal with at their venue, or ask your already chosen suppliers of any recommendations.
I am always happy to help my couples on this as I have many suppliers I work alongside at weddings and I have every confidence in putting their names forwards.
Check out reviews on social media – if they have them switched off, this could be a warning sign. When it comes to social media be careful of asking on social media groups, as you may not always get an honest recommendation, sometimes it can just be someone who knows someone who does what you are asking for, and not someone they have personally used.
Don’t be afraid to ask the supplier if they have wedding insurance, every wedding professional knows they need and should have insurance and as a couple you have every right to know they do and that you are protected.
