Round-Up of Questions to Ask Your Wedding Vendors

Over the last few months, I've been blogging about the various questions you may want to ask potential wedding vendors before you book them. I've listed these below so you can quickly access them.


Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is one of the most important vendor decisions you’ll make – the memories they capture are the ones you’ll look back on for years to come. There are so many talented wedding photographers out there with a wide range of packages and prices.

You may be debating the added cost of hiring a Videographer for your wedding. But it’s a great way to capture the ceremony and events at the reception such as toasts, your guests dancing and messages they want to give you. Wedding videos nowadays are edited to be more like movies or music videos.

In terms of music, you may want to consider live music and/or DJs. There are three points during your wedding that you will want to have some form of music, which are the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the reception.

The food you serve your guests can be one of the most memorable parts of your wedding so choosing the right caterer is one of the most important vendor decisions you’ll need to make. Some venues will only allow you to use their catering services or a company from their preferred supplier list, but if you’re able to pick your own then they’ll want to hire someone who will be open to your suggestions and develop a menu that reflects your tastes and style.

Cake Designer

Choosing desserts for your wedding can be one of the most fun parts of planning, especially when you get to do tastings! If you think you’d be interested in something other than a traditional wedding cake then discuss with your supplier about creating an alternative such as a dessert table.

Hair & Make-Up Artists

Some Stylists with offer both hair and makeup services, or will specialise in just one. You’ll need to consider how long you have in the morning to get ready and how many people will be wanting to use the services of a Stylist. I’d strongly advise having a trial run before your wedding to make sure you’re happy with their work.

When we talk about ‘wedding stationery’ we mean any paper goods you use at a wedding, such as invitations, save the date cards, the order of service, menus, place cards and any other general signage you may need. There are many resources to find your perfect wedding invitations and stationery, such as custom designers and online retailers.

Renting a hire car with a chauffeur is one of the most popular solutions to get to your wedding venue, it gives you some quiet time to unwind on your way to your wedding in luxury and arrive in style. There are numerous options from limousines to a classic Bentley or Rolls Royce to a fun sports car.

A celebrant is an independent professional who is not restricted by religion or legal obligation and can, therefore, provide you with a custom-made ceremony which is personal to you. When meeting your potential celebrant for the first time, what kind of impression do they give you and is this someone you want to play a major role in your wedding?
