In the wake of the pandemic, weddings have been postponed resulting in packed calendars for vendors stretching through 2021 and early 2022. Couples that are getting engaged now are running into difficulty booking vendors because of limited availability. Engaged couples are spending countless hours searching for vendors they love, only to have to start the process over again when those vendors are booked. When booking vendors there are several hurdles couples run into:
• Where to find vendors: There are an endless amount of options for wedding vendors, where do you begin? While there are several great platforms to search for vendors, it can seem overwhelming.
• Availability: After you find your dream wedding vendors, now you take the time to reach out to find out if they are available. This requires time to complete inquiry forms and responding to emails. If the vendor is not available, the process starts over to find a different vendor.
• Gathering Costs: There are many cases where costs are not listed on a vendor website, thus you have no idea if you can hire your dream wedding vendor. Even if your vendor is available, there may be a likelihood that they are out of your budget.
• Quality: Reviews are important, but referrals can seal a deal. Several couples feel most comfortable with vendors that are referred to them by quality sources (friends, co-workers, family members, etc.). If a couple does not have a source they can rely on for vendor referrals, they are left searching through the sea of vendors to find a vendor with quality reviews and a built reputation.
Julie B Events will take the guesswork out of searching for vendors. Through our extensive vendor network, we will find the vendors that are available, aligned with your style, and in budget. Our process:
The client will complete a survey so our team can gather the necessary details. We will take that information and work with vendors in our network to find options that fit the client’s needs. Julie B Events will prepare 2 – 3 options within 6-12 days of receiving the request.
