T.R.U.S.T. Your Vendors

IMG_0021

Wedding and event season is upon us once again Friend, and as you make decisions about which vendors will be a part of your special day, think about if their actions lead you to T.R.U.S.T. them. A couple of weeks ago I had an event planner call me in a panic because a vendor they paid in full was not responding to their calls or emails about an event that was two days away. They were so desperate that they began a new search for another vendor to provide a service that had already been paid in full. My heart went out to them! Just yesterday though, my heart was warmed after I met with a new client who recently moved to Atlanta and they said, ‘it’s nice to have an honest resource in the city’.

This reminded me about how important it is for you to T.R.U.S.T. your vendors. Vendors who Totally Respect, Understand, & Stay Truthful to their commitments are vendors you want to entrust with your special day! Communication with prospective vendors is so key in making these important decisions about your milestone occasion, so note how long it takes for vendors to return your phone calls and emails, while checking blogs, discussion boards and online advertisers to see if any reviews have been communicated about the vendor. Whenever I first interact with a prospective client, I think of it as a job interview, and the client has the power to hire me or not.

I hope this tidbit will help in your decision-making process. I also invite you to sign up for my complimentary guide, ‘Top 7 Mistakes to Avoid When Selecting An Event Rental Company’ at http://www.sweetrentaltips.com/ which will give you even more food for thought as you make preparations for your special day!

What’s on YOUR holiday wish list?

I love that the holidays are a great time of year to give and receive special gifts from loved ones.  Instead of getting another gift card or another pair of pajamas (which are great gifts) this season, why not ask a loved one to spread some holiday joy and help pay for those chiavari chairs you really want at your reception, contribute to the florals you want to grace your ceremony, or upgrade your photography package?

This way, you involve loved ones in the process and you get the vendors and upgrades you really want! You will be surprised at how willing loved ones may be to help, and how special they will feel because they played a special role in making your wedding dreams come true!
Warm holiday wishes,
