Wenning’s Wedding Tip Wednesday
We’re talking all about red flags that you need to watch out for when selecting vendors for your wedding!
Wherever you go, there are good eggs and bad eggs. More than likely, this is your first wedding and you’ve never had to deal with event vendors before. That means it’s vitally important for you to do your research to determine what makes a good vendor, or you’ll be left with that bad egg! This week’s tip is all about vendor reviews!
No Reviews? What does that mean?
Let’s face it. This pandemic left a lot of businesses hanging, wedding vendors being one of them! If you’re shopping for wedding vendors around 2020, it’s likely that you won’t find a lot of recent reviews. That doesn’t mean you should disregard the vendor! Take a look at their prior reviews and find the ones that pull specific moments from the event. Are some of your needs or questions addressed in the reviews?
It’s not unheard of to ask a vendor for referrals and recommendations. In fact, I’m sure they’d prefer it! Speaking to a now-married couple about their experience with that vendor might be exactly what you need to feel comfortable about taking the leap and booking the vendor! You can ask specific questions and analyze their answers and know that it’s genuine because no one forgets an outstanding vendor on the most important day of their life.
When to Question a Review…
We ask all of our clients to leave detailed reviews because we KNOW how important they are in making decisions! If you search for a vendor and there is little to no reviews, or the reviews are not descriptive or helpful, consider it a red flag. This could mean that they asked friends or family to throw some “Five Stars” their way to bump up their rating. This could also mean that the reviews they did have were not-so-glowing and they found a way to delete them. Either way, consider the consistency and relevancy of the reviews when making your decision.
