Many of you have heard or read a lot about the importance of having a large number of to-do list at your disposal.

What is a wedding vendor?
Any person or company that a good or service that is specifically provides for a wedding considered to be a wedding vendor.
The list includes:
Wedding Room / Chapel
Reception wedding venue
Photographer / videographer
Now that you know who you need to contact Here is a timeline that you should try to keep. Most of the best wedding vendors are booked for at least a year in advance. This is the main reason that most wedding planners advise couples to plan on a wait of a year to have their wedding. Understand that the sooner you lock them in the better can be confident that you are the one you really wanted.
Wedding Chapel and Reception Hall.
You need to find them and connect them as quickly as possible. These are often used for other things and getting both the date and time you want to take a good bit of negotiation. It is best to work simultaneously on these.
Baker / Caterer
Besides renting the rooms, are the next highest priority of all your suppliers. You have to find at least 6-9 months before the wedding. You have the cake and menu to choose soon afterwards. It’s also good to have a rough estimate of the number of people you expect to attend the event.
Another must have and these also fall into the “book early to avoid the crowds” 6-9 month timeframe. You receive need flowers for each stage of the wedding.
Transportation – 5-6 months
Invitations – at least 6 months in advance – but you can purchase the save the date cards much earlier.
Wedding DJ / Band – as soon as possible, the good ones are in high demand
Photographer / videographer – This is also an area that you have to play a little by ear. Again, the more experienced in high demand and the sooner you book, the better.
Checklist of things to ask and consider when hiring Wedding Vendors
Who will do the actual work (this is especially important when hiring a DJ / band or Photographer)
How long have yo been in business (ask about the person doing the work, many times a company is in business for years, but their workers could be quite new.)
Availability (they are available on the dates you want)
Ask for at least three references
Ask about the cancellation policy (a copy so you can read the fine print)
How much deposit is required and how long you need to complete the payment.
Trust your gut, if it does not feel to go quite well with that feeling. If during an interview the wedding vendor is more interested in selling you what they have in mind, rather than listening to proceed to your ideas. Visit Weddingeye.in For more information about choosing suppliers .
