Why Book through Professional Wedding Suppliers? Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and surrounding areas 

When planning a Wedding or Event there are many tasks choosing the suppliers can feel daunting. There are some key considerations when choosing your suppliers.

Once you have booked your wedding venue, it is time to consider other aspects. Our guide below will help you consider different ideas and suggestions.

Where to Begin?

First off decide what you need and what you want, most couples will hire a Wedding Photographer, Wedding DJ Service, Photo Booth, alternative 360 Photo Booth or even something unique like a Audio Guest Book (Phoneogram).

Make a list of Services you would like at your Wedding.

Which suppliers should I book first? Highly recommended to book sooner rather than later just in case your date becomes unavailable. Many of the best suppliers can be booked up two years in advance. It’s recommended to create a wedding email address which helps to keep all admin in one place.

Shortlisting Suppliers

Once you know what you would like at your wedding find those amazing suppliers. In Hampshire, Surrey & West Sussex there are many professional suppliers.

A great way to start your shortlist is by recommendations. Google is your friend when finding suppliers. Look at reviews, check their website how much experience they have and quality of services they offer.  There are a wide range of sites and wedding directories highly recommend looking at Hitched. Don’t forget to attend wedding fayres these are a great way of meeting suppliers.

Choosing Your Suppliers

Once you have a shortlist you then need to choose which to book. Get in touch with them to see if they have availability, get a quote and tweak your budget accordingly. Don’t make your choice purely on price, it is about ensuring you get quality and value.

Many suppliers you can view their social media pages for their latest work, read reviews on their website, Google page or Facebook page. Depending on the supplier you wish to ensure they match your style and quality before booking.

When booking a Wedding DJ make sure they have the correct insurances, experience of Weddings and understanding of how to create the best atmosphere. If their answers, feel relaxed and confident you know they have the expertise to ensure your wedding entertainment is in safe hands. Most Wedding DJs will only ask for a small playlist why? As overloading a DJ with 200 songs will only make their freedom to react to the crowd limited. Like Photographers if you give them 200 must photo shoots then they will miss those special moments that happen during the day.

When talking to different suppliers make sure you get in with them, they feel and share your excitement for your wedding day. Make sure they get back to you about any questions you may have in a timely fashion.
