WE GOT YOU. YOUR BURNING WEDDING PLANNING QUESTIONS - ANSWERED
We’ve asked our Flutter Pros to answer some of your burning questions about the wedding vendor-client experience. Read on for some insight from our experts.
What should I look for when selecting wedding vendors?
Every couple has their own priorities, but it usually comes down to style, budget, personality, values, and experience. Hire vendors that align with your criteria and whenever possible have experience working with one another so everyone vibes on your big day.
How far out do I need to start hiring my vendors?
The best venues and vendors book up fast. It’s never too early to start hiring your team. Start with your venue to secure a date and then work from there, prioritizing vendors that only work with a limited number of clients per day – i.e. Planners, Photographers, Bands, and so on.
When do I need to pay my wedding vendors?
This varies with each business, but most require a deposit to lock-in the date and collect the rest once services are delivered – yup, that means on your wedding day. PRO TIP: Ask your Planner, Coordinator, or a friend to take care of delivering any outstanding payments and tips to vendors so you can focus on enjoying your guests.
What should I expect from my wedding team on the big day?
It’s go time. Whether it’s you or a Planner, it’s a good idea to have a schedule of when vendors are coming and going. There’s a lot of independent businesses that need to work together so share the schedule with the full team to keep everyone on the same page. Now, sit back and let the pros do their jobs so you can fully experience your wedding day!
Is there anything left to do with my vendors post-festivities?
You’ll be reliving the best night ever over and over in your head. The vendors that captured your memories – Photographers and Videographers – will deliver the goods anywhere from a few weeks to months. Check your contract ahead of time to see what the turnaround is. Share your experience working with each vendor by writing a review.
