Wenning’s Wedding Tip Wednesday
Making an educated decision can be difficult, when planning a wedding, for a multitude of reasons. This month we are discussing ways you can make the best decisions, for your special day, without adding any unwanted stress or going over your budget.
This week we focus on delegation. A common mistake newly engaged couples make is involving too many people in the decision making process. Asking a family member or friend to make calls, to vendors, on your behalf is never a good idea. Often times, the only information that is communicated back, is regarding price. There are many factors that should go into picking a vendor, price cannot be the sole reason. A family member or friend may be biased towards a particular vendor, without knowing much about the quality of their work.
Remember this is your wedding, so it should be your vision and ultimately your voice when making decisions. In order to do that, you need to set aside 5-10 minutes, per day, to speak with vendors yourself.
Lastly, keep in mind, it is hard to convey information, during the initial stages of negotiation, via email. Often times people fixate on the price and not much else, without actually speaking to the vendor and are missing out on quality services.
