Charming Your Vendor Team

Encourage your wedding vendors to connect with each other before your wedding. When vendors feel a part of a warm team, their work shows it. Sometimes they may already know each other. You also can benefit from choosing vendors whose work you like who already enjoy working together. If a problem does arise, vendors who are invested in each other will be more likely to help each other, saving you from having to intervene. You can endear your vendors to you by honoring their wisdom as professionals, by being enthused to collaborate with them, and by being realistic about timelines and changes. Sharing your wedding vision with delight, and then doing what you can as a team to fulfill it brings out the best ~ and the trust ~ in everyone. Then, everyone can relax and enjoy ~ your vendors, your family, and most importantly, you and your spouse in the spotlight!
