Choosing the right Wedding Suppliers

A guest blog post from with tips & hints for finding the best wedding suppliers

I know it’s so confusing trying to choose the right wedding suppliers for your perfect day, so we have put some hints & tips for you which will make it a whole lot easier.

Testimonials – always ask them for testimonials – they speak for themselves for real brides & grooms and events.

Insurance – check if main wedding suppliers like caterers, photographers, florists have public liability insurance as it’s surprising how many do not and they should have it if dealing with the public and have items on display that may affect the public in any way.

Sample Products – ask for samples of the products or food tastings so you can try before you buy.

Music – ask to see them perform at a wedding/event, not in a pub as the atmosphere and people are different at both.

Dress – listen to the supplier who is actually giving you advice and letting you try on lots of styles (even if it’s not the style you want as you may be surprised!), not the one that is saying you look good in every dress you try on just to make a sale.

Budget – make a budget and try and stick to it getting discounts where possible. Have a small contingency fund in case any last minute surprises or you have forgotten something. – online wedding discount vouchers.
