Congratulations on your engagement! You’re one step closer to the wedding of your dreams. Now comes the fun part: planning it. But before you dive in, take a moment to consider these top three vendors you need to book as soon as possible.
the Wedding Planner
A planner will help you make sure that your big day goes off without a hitch. They’ll take care of everything from selecting your venue to coordinating with other vendors and making sure that everyone is on schedule throughout the day. They can also help you decide how much money you want to spend and what kind of style you want for each detail—from flowers to food—so that every aspect of the event reflects exactly who you are as a couple.
Of course, there wouldn’t be any weddings without venues! When looking for one for your special day, keep in mind things like size (how many guests will be coming), location (how accessible it is), and amenities (is there parking nearby?). Beyond that, think about what kind of atmosphere feels right for your relationship: something modern or traditional? Intimate or extravagant? Your wedding planner will have suggestions based on their experience working with couples like yourselves.
the Wedding Photographer
A photographer is essential! Not only do they capture those perfect moments but they can also help style the photos for your wedding day. They know how to pose people in certain ways or how to position them in certain lights so they look their best. This will help ensure that all of your photos are amazing! Find someone who is willing to work with you (and doesn't try to upsell). You want someone who understands what's important to you and won't push anything on you that isn't necessary.
