How to Choose Your Wedding Suppliers

Once you’ve picked a bridal fair to attend, the next challenge would be to assemble your wedding team. This can be quite challenging since the choices are overwhelming. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

👉 Set Your Budget in Advance

A bridal fair usually features attractive suppliers that may tempt you to spend beyond your means. Set a wedding budget in advance to avoid falling into the trap of choosing expensive vendors. Doing so may limit your options, but it’ll help you choose easily and quickly.  

You’ll also discover your financial compatibility as a couple in the process.

👉 Ask for Referrals

If you want to speed up choosing your suppliers, you can always ask your friends or relatives for recommendations. Aside from the suppliers they ultimately picked, they surely had other candidates in mind. List down their referrals and start your research from there.  

👉 Read Reviews Online

These days, it should be easy to do your due diligence on wedding suppliers, thanks to online reviews. Check your potential suppliers’ Facebook pages and read what past clients have to say. You can also watch vlogs on YouTube that review different suppliers. You may even get some insider tips along the way.

👉 Meet the Team in Person

The suppliers you have your eye on may have five-star reviews. But will they be comfortable to work with? To find out, meet them in person. Attending bridal fairs this 2023 is the best way to do that, so make some time. Prepare a list of questions and try to see their vision for your wedding.

👉 Fight the Urge to Overthink

Overthinking is just a normal part of the wedding planning process. But you need to curb it, as it may delay decision-making. When that happens, your potential supplier may choose to work with another client.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to wedding preparations, you need to work with the best teams possible. Scouting for the right suppliers may take some time, but if you know where to start, you can speed up the process—in which case, a bridal fair is a must-visit for every engaged couple.
