Vendor Etiquette: Writing Reviews

This week we discuss writing reviews.  It’s always polite to write a review after a job well done.  It is also great to write a review on several platforms such as Google, Facebook, Wedding Wire, The Knot and several others.  Placing a review on these websites will be seen by more people and have more engagement.  Posting on their facebook page is always good but its beneficial not only to the company getting a good review but to the people that are in the beginning stage of planning their wedding.  Simply copy and paste it to all these websites making that review a quality reference.  This will take no more then 10 minutes for you to do and your vendors will greatly appreciate your efforts.

This week we discuss gratuity expectations. On the day of the wedding reception it is important to have some cash on hand with you.  Tips are a great way to acknowledge when a job is well done but remember they are earned, not guaranteed.  Tipping the DJ a couple hundred dollars extra if they did a good job or stayed longer then expected is a great way to show gratitude.  Look for workers that went above and beyond such as the valet staff, servers, or anyone else that made your day a lot less stressful.  Even though you already paid them, show some love if you think that they did a great job.

Our focus this month will be on Vendor Etiquette. Sometimes you don’t know what questions to ask when it comes to vendors, allow us to give you insight, on a few questions pertaining to vendors.

This week we discuss vendor meals. What is that? Something you likely didn’t think about during the planning process. It is customary to offer your vendors, participating in your big day, a warm meal. By no means are you required to serve the same food as your guests, however, the venue should be able to prepare a meal for your DJ, Photographer, Wedding Planner and anyone else working your ceremony/reception.

Keep in mind vendors are working hard to ensure your wedding is perfect. Often times, vendors can barely slip away to use the restroom, let alone sit down to eat. Feeding your vendors, ensures they have the energy needed, to provide you with their best services. Eating with their hands is not ideal, since their equipment can get messy, afterwards.

Talk to the vendor providing the catering, to determine what options are available, for vendor meals.
