Whether you’re planning a wedding in Montreal or elsewhere, hiring the right vendors is critical to ensure your wedding is the way you want it to be. This process can be quite overwhelming, stressful and confusing because there are so many vendors out there. For many brides and grooms, this is something brand new to them, so where DO you start?

Here are 5 tips to help you get started in your vendor search…

  • Ask for referrals from family and friends who have recently been married. You will right away get first hand feedback and reviews of those vendors.

  • Wedding Shows are coming up! There is one in a couple of weeks at Place Bonaventure, Le Grand Salon Marions-Nous, a good place to get an idea of who’s out there and what they can offer. There are so many kiosks and can be overwhelming, stay tuned for a blog post on how to tackle a wedding show as big as this one.

  • Meeting with them is the best way to interview a potential vendor to see if they are the right fit for you. You get to see their office or showroom and meet them in person to experience their personality.

  • Ask all the questions you may have so that you know exactly what you’re getting and know what the vendor is talking about if things aren’t clear. Don’t be afraid to ask!

  • Listen and observe if the vendor is patient and if they take the time to help you make choices that are in your best interest.
