BUILDING YOUR VENDOR Dream Team

        Assist in securing ALL vendors and ask all                      important questions before booking them:
  • VENUE (What exactly is included in the venue fee? How many hours and exactly which hours will the facility be open for vendors and the bride on the wedding day? Do you have imposed vendors? Where will guests park? Is this cost included in the rental fee?...)
  • CATERER (Make sure that they have plenty of staff serving guests and a great leadership team, including a head catering manager. Cake cutting fee? Do they have the ability to meet the needs of people with special dietary restrictions? Do they take care of trash? Is food prepared on-site or off-site?...)
  • ENTERTAINMENT (How long will they play?
    How many breaks will they take during that time?...)
