Where can I find a Wedding Vendor?

Unless you’re in the marriage planning business, or you have been married before, chances are you haven’t the slightest clue on who is a wedding vendor or where you can even find a wedding vendor.  Fortunately there are a whole lot of places where you can find and even sample what a wedding vendor has to offer.  Here are some of the best places to go:

Wedding Expos

Every town and city has them on an annual basis, if not even more often in larger cities.  Wedding expos are a fantastic place for a bride and her groom to go to gather ideas on how they want their wedding to appear, and who will be able to help them make their special day extra special.  Wedding expos usually include samples of a vendor’s work, a list of their prices, and you can discuss the details of your wedding “one-on-one” with the vendor so it is all the more personal.  You can also usually collect coupons and other discounts from the vendors if they know that you are seriously interested in their business.

Bridal Magazines

Every advertisement in a bridal magazine usually includes a phone number or an address of a wedding vendor.  Flip to the back of the magazine, and you will see a whole lot more addresses of where you can obtain what ever it is that you are looking for.  These magazines are great because they do often offer discounts and deals that you wouldn’t otherwise be aware of.

Friends and Family

Word of mouth is perhaps the best kind of advertising that there is out there.  Your friends and family will definitely tell you if they hated the service of a vendor they know of, if they loved a wedding vendor, and they will give you a full run down of the pros and cons of each vendor they tell you about.  You will never get more honest advertising than that.

The Internet

The Internet offers a whole lot of information on wedding vendors in your area – which can make it all the more mind boggling for a bride and groom who are just beginning the wedding planning process.  The Internet often makes a couple feel more overwhelmed and upset by the wedding planning process, which is why the Internet should be used only once you have an idea of what you want, what services you need, and what you are specifically looking for.  Otherwise you may be trapped in a cyber maze that you seem to never be able to get out of.

Ask People in Town

Did you know that your neighbor who casually runs her own florist shop next door actually is a floral provider for many weddings in your area?  Or did you know that the restaurant you love will also cater?  Use the resources you are already familiar with to help plan out your wedding details.  The benefit is that you already know the people and love their work, so contact people you are familiar with and see if they could be hired on as a vendor for your wedding.
