Have a sit-down with your bridesmaids or helpers
Before plunging into the deep end, inform your bridal party of the theme you’re going with and your wedding vision. This will ensure that all of you are on the same page when you trawl the Net looking for hair, makeup, style and decor inspirations, venues and vendors.
Keep your focus
With the wealth of information available online, it’s easy to get sidetracked when researching. To avoid that, create a list of what you are searching for before going on the Internet, and keep it at hand when researching.
Go over everything
…and we mean everything. If you are hiring a photo studio for your wedding, for instance, make sure you look at the portfolio of the actual photographer you will be working with. This ensures that the quality of your pre-wedding or wedding-day photos are on a par with that of the photos you see in the promotional materials, which may be shot by a guest photographer.
Read the reviews
This is very important. After all, you want to make sure you’re working with the best for your special day!
Do some legwork
Don’t just read the online reviews. Get input from friends who have just tied the knot or ask friends in the bridal industry about the best service providers you should be working with.
