Part 3 in the continuing series
8. Don’t do too much
So you are the creative type, you think of saving money by making table decorations, the wedding gifts, the flower bouquets etc. This also goes for friends and family. Most people lead very busy lives and can’t spend time making things. A bad result will disappoint and you could lose a good friendship over it. Best leave some things to the professionals.
9. Remember to give a thank you to those that help.
Weddings can take an awfully long time to plan. You may be lucky and have a lot of help on hand so remember to say a big “Thank You”, parents and bridesmaids especially as they will have had to put up with you for many months prior to the big day.
10. Research is the key
Most people research their vendors, suppliers, venues etc. You will also find things you need, but didn’t realise you needed them. Contacts LOT’s of suppliers and always compare prices. We regard to wedding photography, be careful of reviews and websites. As wedding photographers we see all kind of photographic set-ups using models to advertise their services. One photographer we know bought a wedding dress in a charity shop for £20, hired a model for 4 hours at £150. He took her to a church and bingo, a super new front page of his website. And being a photographic model she knew how to pose for him. This produced a super front page for £170. Always ask to see a complete wedding album, books BEFORE you sign a photography contract
