Sweetheart and I booked a very pretty venue about a 2 hour drive away from us. We are now beginning to hire our vendors and are stumped about which vendors we should hire near the venue, and which vendors we should hire near us.
My question is, for those of you who have already gotten married or going through the wedding planning process now, in your experience, which vendors have you found you needed constant face to face contact with throughout your planning who would be best to hire near your home?
And which vendors have been better to hire near the venue? We have to pay for gas for the vendors we hire near home, which we are willing to do if we need constant access to them, but of course we can’t afford to do this for all vendors.
We were thinking that the vendors that we might need constant face to face meetings throughout our year of planning might be those like the wedding planner? Maybe even the hair and makeup artist, as I would need to visit them a few times for trial sessions? Maybe the photographer because we would do our engagement shoot locally? Or we could be wrong about all of these guesses.
What do you think? What is your advice for these vendors and other vendors:
- Wedding Planner
- Makeup & Hair
