Hmmm, I’ve never heard of this before, but I must say that I strongly suggest against it….you def want a chance to meet all your vendors and make sure they are what you want for your wedding.  There’s no do-over for a wedding.  Besides, who’s to say that the "other" bidding brides are really brides and not staged to make the rates go higher?  Sorry, that’s just the skeptical me talking.

I think it’s a valid point, MissBlueBear and agree that you should meet all your vendors. I guess if it were goods and not services, then a bidding war could be okay (ie cake knife vs. engagement session).

Never heard of it. And I’d probably be a little turned off by a vendor who did such a thing – seems arrogant to me.

I’ve never heard of securing wedding vendors this way and like others, would advise against it..sounds like a sketchy way for vendors to make more money off of you, IMO. Bidding is something more appropriate in say, a design setting where the designer is bidding on a job that they want to do. Hope you steer clear!
