How can you tell if a wedding vendor is good?
You can interview them, meet them in person and get to know them…
You can research them and check out their reviews and portfolio…
And you can talk to past clients and see what their experience was like.
But, unless you can actually take them for a dry run, it’s really hard to tell.
Because even if you do everything you should to vet them, you still might hire the wrong wedding vendor.
Because, you never REALLY know.
Now there’s nothing that will 100% take away that unknown. But, there is one thing you can do that helps tremendously.
Because understanding how good or not good someone is, is relative.
A wedding vendor can look great and sound great, but in comparison to another isn’t nearly as good.
When you compare two wedding vendors side by side you can see the differences.
It’s like when you’re looking at two different shoes or two different flights. In order to understand the value and if it’s right for you, you have to compare it to something.
And the comparison is helpful through out the entire vetting process.
It’s helpful to compare quotes and proposals. It’s helpful to compare portfolios. And it’s helpful to compare personalities and how they interact with you.
The comparison helps you to be able to make a good decision.
It’s what you need in order to find the right wedding vendors for you.
So, when you’re looking at wedding vendors, make sure to have a comparison. Make sure you talk to a couple of different vendors.
Yes, it requires more work, but it is one of the only ways you can tell if the person you’re hiring is right for you.
I can say from personal experience finding the perfect vendors for my clients that comparison really is key to finding the right wedding vendors. It not only gives you more information, but it makes your decision clear.
And it results in you feeling good about your decision too because you know you’re choosing the right wedding vendors.
And if you go through the comparison process and none of the wedding vendors feel right, you can still use that information you learned to help you find the right ones.
Comparison is an amazing and simple tool. Use it to find the right wedding vendors for you and it will make decisions much easier.
