Vendors: Behind the Scenes
Weddings by nature are the most labor-intensive event. This is one area in which you don't want to skimp - hire vendors who will implement professionally all your planning details. Perhaps the most important vendor to ensure you have a stress-free wedding is the day-of coordinator. They will confirm all vendor arrangements for you, direct the rehearsal, point you, your families and attendants to the right place at the right time, troubleshoot, synchronize, set-out and pack-up. This enables you to focus on a marriage and spending time with your guests rather than working.
Other than coordinators, make sure you hire a full-service caterer and photographer that have experience coordinating weddings. When booking a florist, make sure that they include transporting and setup/tear down in their quote.
