I’m 25, but have gotten a bit of it from random people because I look very young. I haven’t met anyone wedding related in person yet (I have my first venue meeting on Thursday, so we’ll see what happens), so I think that’s helped with a lot of it.

The only advice I can offer is that anyone who won’t give you the time of day because of how you look is NOT someone you want to do business with.

omg I know just how you feel! I am also a young oct bride to be(I’m 21)…And actually when my mom and I went to look at a venue they started talking to her about about what she was thinking and she looked at them and was like I belive you should be asking the bride to be those questions, the lady then turned to me and looked at my like I had to heads!! I understand most of mine cus from the fact that I look even younger then I am but seriously even if you think someone is young you should still treat them they same as every other customer.

I just tell people who are nosey to mind their own business.  As for the vendors, just let them know you won’t be using them for their costumer service.

I’m young (23) and definitely find that how I present myself affects how I am treated.  When dealing with vendors, etc. I would be sure to wear semi-professional clothing when meeting them (dress pants and shirt/ cardigan), would avoid “slang” in professional correspondence (i.e. e-mail) and paid a lot of attention to my body language (firm handshake, looking at the person in the eye while speaking etc).  I know if seems silly (and you should be treated the same no matter what) – but, I found that it really matters.
