I recently participated in a panel discussion in front of 200+ Boston-area wedding vendors.
The conversation centered completely on YOU BRIDES: how vendors can understand you brides better, so they can serve you better.
I was impressed with the vendors I met, and thought it would be helpful to offer my perspective on the vendors you are hiring.
Wedding vendors are professionals:
• whose reputations and livelihoods live and die on your satisfaction.
• who are single-mindedly service-focused.
• who are expert problem-solvers.
• who know what information they need from you; they’ll ask the right questions.
• whose job is to execute your wedding
They do it every day. Every weekend, month after month, year after year. They’ve seen it all and learned from their mistakes.
This isn’t their first wedding, like it is yours.
My advice to you?
This doesn’t even include the emotional heavy-lifting you’re doing
Grieving the end your single life and identity, changing family dynamics, ending the simple dating days, all while planning your wedding.
Let the wedding professionals do their jobs for you.
Let them guide you.
Answer their questions.
Then trust them to do their work. They do this every day.
So you can focus on what’s really important: your own psychological transition from single woman to married woman and your new marriage.
PS Practical fact: Never call a vendor on a Friday and expect to hear back: they’re focused on that weekend’s wedding – as they should be. You’ll want their undivided attention when it’s your turn.
