How To Find The Best Wedding Suppliers For Your Wedding

Find the best wedding suppliers for your wedding

When it comes to your wedding, you want everything to be perfect. This includes finding the best wedding suppliers possible. But with so many options available, how can you be sure that you're making the right choice?

You want to make sure your vendors are reliable, consistent, and up to the task. But you also need to make sure they are within your budget. If you're struggling to get started on this mammoth task, here are some tips to help you find the best wedding suppliers for your big day.

1. Do your research

Before you start contacting any suppliers, it's important to do your research. This will help you narrow down your options and find the best fit for your wedding. Look online and read reviews from other couples who have used the supplier before. This can give you a good idea of what to expect and whether they will be a good fit for your big day. Head to our wedding vendor's directory to start your search!

2. Don't rule out new vendors

If you find a newer vendor that doesn't have many online reviews, this doesn't necessarily mean that they can't deliver. It's worthwhile taking a chance on newer vendors when they are just starting their business, i.e. they will be more affordable and likely to go above and beyond to make your wedding perfect! And if they are listed on a director like ours, you know they are committed to growing their business!

3. Ask for recommendations

If you know anyone who has recently gotten married, ask them for recommendations. They may have some great insights into which suppliers were the best and which ones to avoid. And it doesn't have to be only the vendors they used for their own wedding. They might have had a vendor shortlist they couldn't use because they weren't available on their wedding date.

4. Head to social media

If there is a supplier that you love, you could mine their social media channels for other incredible vendors. When vendors share snaps from the weddings they have worked on, they will often tag other businesses. That Amazing Place and Clare Kentish offer some incredible wedding inspo on their social media channels.

This can be a huge source of inspiration and could help you to connect with smaller vendors that offer incredible rates. You can also look at wedding venue websites, as they will often share real wedding stories, and this could include some great tips for vendors.

5. Compare rates

Once you have a shortlist of potential suppliers, it's time to start comparing rates. This will help you narrow down your options even further and find the most affordable option for your big day. Make sure to compare like-for-like services so that you're getting a fair comparison.

6. Ask about discounts

If you're working with a tight budget, don't be afraid to ask about discounts. Many suppliers will be willing to negotiate on their rates, especially if you're booking multiple services from them or if you're planning a mid-week or off-season wedding. It never hurts to ask, and you could end up saving a lot of money in the process. And if you find a multi-skilled vendor, like Pictures & Petals, then you could save money by combining services.
