HOW CLUELESS ARE YOU WHEN IT COMES TO HIRING WEDDING VENDORS?
Cut the cake or cut the cost? Don’t worry, you are not alone.
Despite obvious progress, some parts of wedding planning feel as frustrating now as they did ten years ago. Being closely knitted to the wedding scene for almost a decade, it became abundantly clear that two frustrations in particular are still persistent as hell in wedding planning: families being family (aka making you crazy about nonsensical stuff) and vendors being really hard to hire. From venues that make you set up an appointment before they’ll even tell you their baseline pricing, to trying to figure out how to narrow down fifteen awesome wedding photographers without having a degree in photography yourself, the early parts of wedding planning can feel between an untappable EZLINK card with a whole line behind you or breaking the egg yolk before it reaches your mouth. #relatable
A perfect fit.
It seems like an insignificant portion but we guarantee some of you almost thought that waving the white flag was an option. So we wanted to open up today’s topic – to ask you about your wedding vendor frustrations. What’s the hardest part of finding and hiring them? What are your worries for the actual event? How could things be better? Have you guys hired all of your vendors, or are you still looking? Which ones were easy to get out of the way, and which ones are still keeping you up at night?
There are so many issues we’d like to understand and eventually help tackle and possibly connecting couples with the right small businesses to support your wedding is some of the things that makes us stay up way past bedtime (Have you seen our TTP FAM Partnerships?). But so much of the wedding industry is focused on what vendors need. And today, we want to know what you all need. What does the dream vendor hiring process look like to you? And how far from it are we right now?
