During a recent consultation with a client, I was asked for the number one piece of advice I have. I’ve been asked for a lot of tips and tricks and advice, but this bride’s mom wanted only one answer. Although no one has ever actually asked for just ONE piece of advice, I didn’t hestitate on knowing which tip to pick.
For the bride that is tackling the planning process on her own, without the help of a professional planner, my best advice is to communicate! Seems simple, right? It is. Communicate to your vendors all your thoughts, questions, and concerns. There is no such thing as over-communicating. The more you know about your vendor and their services specifically, the easier it will be for you to plan every last detail.
It also helps your vendor to have a good line of communication because they are able to understand your vision to help execute what you want specifically. If your vision doesn’t match up with the service your vendor provides, then you just avoided a major disaster on your wedding day!
So to recap and keep it simple, talk to your vendors about their services, your vision, and every question and concern you have about their service specifically. It will save you a lot of stress leading up to your big day, as well as help your day to go a smooth as possible by keeping everyone on the same page.
Keep communicating, and happy planning!
