No deposit, No vendor
It is important that you pay your deposit because without that your date will go to another bride
Using family and friends as vendors
In order to save your friendships and relationships with family members I recommend that you do not use friends or family as vendors. If you must, keep it 100% professional and do not expect discount or favours
Not going for trials
It is important to go for makeup and hair trials and also visiting your vendors in person, so you know who you are working with and what to expect on the day. With makeup and hair trials you have the luxury to choose what look you want.
Saying yes to the first thing you see
When wedding planning you will keep seeing things you love and you will want it all. Make sure you shop around and negotiate, do not buy the first thing you see, especially for wedding dresses!
Choosing vendors because of their hype
Make sure you ask people who have used the vendors you want to use because social media can be deceiving, people show you what they want you to see but referrals do not lie!
