Ugh, we had to do this when we went out to our wedding location in May.  We had so many meetings scheduled.  It sucked, but it was kinda of nice to have it over with.  My best suggestion is to take a little notebook and take lots of notes.

Some great advice that I read a long time ago (and I don’t remember where – sorry!) is to ONLY meet with 3 vendors in each category (3 photogs, 3 officants, 3 florists, etc).  Do your research beforehand and determine which 3 you want to meet with, otherwise your probably right – they’ll get all jumbled in your head.

Good luck… that sounds intense! I did 3 florists back to back when I was looking at vendors. the way I kept them straight was to take notes as much as I could, and brochures. I also took some time between the meetings to do a quick recap / summary of major pros / cons so i could keep them straight. hope that helps!

It gets intense.  Make sure you take some time to discuss or take notes in between each meeting, as meetings can start to run together.

As one person said – only book your top 3 choices in each category for a meeting. The others should give you a sense in paper/email form if they will fit your needs.  Take notes – but also listen to you gut instincts. Some vendors will make you feel like their the only choice you have – and if you don’t book them right away, they may get booked for your event.  That may in fact be the case, so if you find someone you really like, halt the interviews and go with them.
