TRUST THEM

If you loved the photographs you saw on your photographer’s website, trust them. There is basis for that trust. You know what they are capable of. Brides can get disappointed if they don’t get what they saw in their portfolio. This can happen when brides micromanage a vendor. 

ASK ABOUT THEIR PROCESS

Finding out what they do to produce such work will help to understand why things are done and will help a bride know not to shut down certain things. This also delegates responsibility, so you have one less thing to worry about. 

TRUST = PEACE OF MIND. 

SHOW THEM YOU TRUST THEM

If a bride tells me she loves my style or inspiration, I feel more confident to explore that style even further and bring new ideas to her. Your other vendors will feel the same! 

PLANNING PROCESS

If you’re still in the planning process, make sure both parties share the same expectations. Your shade of purple may not be what the florist is picturing. Ironing these things out ahead of time should help. Also, make sure to give your vendor permission to do their best. If the poppies you wanted don’t come in the right shade, a florist can use a similar flower instead to get the same effect instead of throwing off the whole scheme by using poor quality poppies because it fits what you’d like on paper. Nature is unpredictable, so a rigid approach may have the opposite effect that you want.

WEDDING DAY

If it’s the wedding day, you’ll have me to take care of any mishaps! As I’ve said, some things on your wedding day won’t go according to plan. The venue may be short a table they promised. A bridesmaid may leave her bouquet at the house. The weather may change your ceremony. You need someone there who can act fast to make these little issues unnoticeable.
