Hire professionals - Choose the right people for your wedding that work with that fit your style and budget
by Julie Begani on August 20th, 2013

There are many reasons it's important to hire the right professionals for your wedding.

First, to help your pinterest wall into reality that is unique and all about your style; second, to work within your deadlines and your budget; third, to bring their expertise and talent to the table; and last but most important to provide friendly, trustworthy customer service so you and your fiancée can have fun working with them. Luckily, with a little research and a few recommendations your dreams will become reality in now time because there are many many reputable wedding vendors that are at your service.

It's important to find people that are experienced at exceeding expectations, and the only fool-proof way to find them is through recommendation. You can choose to work with a seasoned wedding planner, like Julbilation- Events by Julie and take recommendations from our "tried and true" vendor list, or you can seek out recommendations you can trust from other wedding vendors, friends, family members, or co-workers.
To ensure you’re happy with your decisions:
Start looking on-line and in local magazines and resource guides for articles and information 
on wedding vendors in your area and see what jumps out at you. Tear out or print out relevant 
information.   Great suggestions to start - theknot.com, weddingwire.com, perfectweddingguide.com , or call/write Julbilation at 321.262.1148 or createyourevent@gmail.com for our "tried and true" vendor list.

Contact the recommended professionals. Ask how long the businesses have been operating 
and how many weddings they’ve participated in. We think professionals need at least two full 
years in business and at least 10-15 weddings, b'nai mitzvahs, or other major events that include vendor management under their belt to be experienced enough to 
save you costly mistakes. 

Pay attention to how long it takes them to return any messages and how enthusiastic they 
seem about working with you. 

Ask for at least three recent client references and at least three professional references from 
companies they’ve worked with over the years, then check them. 

Meet with potential vendors in person when at all possible. See their photos, taste their 
cakes, and get an up-close idea of how you’ll work together. If you’re having a destination 
wedding you’ll need to trust your planner’s expertise or take extra care when checking 

Get everything in writing up front. Be sure the company has a plan to provide services in 
case of an emergency and to compensate you if the products or services are not delivered 
for any reason. 

Planning a wedding is supposed to be fun, not stressful for you and your fiance.  Make it fun by going on a date night to the restaurant you're rehearsal dinner will take place, plan a staycation at the hotel your guests will be staying, hop around town listing to the DJ's or bands you are interested in.  Most importantly if you feel overwhelmed, call Julbilation (321.262.1148 / createyourevent@gmail.com) and we can provide some consultation time and point you in the right direction if you want to handle all the details yourself.
