Over the next couple weeks, we will be adding a new blog for each common vendor one would use for any type of event. While planning a wedding is overwhelming, before choosing a vendor, you need to make sure they are the right fit for you. Sure, "are they within budget?" is the most common question, but here are more suggestive questions to ask to make sure they are the BEST fit for you!
Each vendor wants to make sure they are able to provide the VERY best service you so you can be thrilled with their work AND refer them out to all your friends. As a venue, we feel the same way and want nothing but the best wedding, event or any other type of gathering to be the best one the guests have attended!
According to Lovegevity University, asking the right questions when researching your area for quality vendors is the first step to developing sound vendor relationships to support your wedding and event planning business.Interviewing vendors will help you select the best vendor for each individual job. For every vendor you need to gain basic knowledge regarding the services they provide.
General questions you should ask of all vendors include the following:
How long have they been in business?
What is their pricing structure?
What makes their service unique from their competitors?
Do they carry general liability insurance?
Have they worked at this facility before?
Can they provide references?
You should also have specific questions for different categories of vendors. Keep an eye out each week as we deep dive our most common vendors and what questions you should ask!
