Believe it or not, wedding planning is already in full-force for 2020! Before planning a wedding, it is important to sit down and decide what your top priorities are for your special day. The aspects that often set the mood for a wedding are a beautiful bride, craft cocktails, swanky tablescapes, divine bites, a sweet slice of wedding cake, plus a firework send-off for the smitten couple. 

As you plan your perfect day, here are three things to help ensure you choose reliable vendors that can make your dream wedding come to life:

EXPERIENCE

Keep in mind, practice always makes perfect when it comes to hiring a trustworthy vendor. The folks who have experience know the ins and outs of the business. A good sign that you have the right vendor is when they lead your discussions with pointed questions like, “Do you have an ideal timeline in mind for your wedding activities?” or “What is most important to you on your wedding day?” 

PRO TIP: Make sure to ask the vendor if they have a portfolio for you to see from their past events to see what they looked like.

EXCELLENT COMMUNICATION SKILLS

Make sure you choose someone who is willing and able to communicate effectively. As you know, there will be a lot of information that needs to be communicated throughout the planning process, especially on the actual wedding day. Creating a streamlined communication process is essential to wedding day happiness. 

PRO TIP: Make sure you submit your final headcount to all of your vendors at least one week prior to your wedding day. Also, make sure your day-of coordinator has contact information for every vendor and has been introduced for smooth resolutions in case issues arise.

PUT THE TASTE TO THE TEST

Food might be the feature that matters the most at your event. People say your guests won’t remember everything from the wedding, but they will always remember what they ate. When taste testing, keep in mind how you want the dinner to be served (plated or buffet style), as well as any dietary restrictions. Is the appetite of your crowd big or small? Don’t forget to think through when and how the Bride and Groom want to be served. Choosing a vendor that can easily accommodate any of your needs will assure you have a crowd (and in-law) pleasing meal. 

Some statistics say brides spend up to 30% of their entire wedding budget on food. Let Taziki’s tackle one of the most important aspects of your wedding by setting up a preliminary phone consultation with your local Taziki’s catering specialist today!
