Your wedding day is going to be one of the best days of your life! But it can also be the most stressful! (If you let it.) Once you’ve got your venue locked down and an official wedding date, now it’s time to tackle wedding vendors!

You’ve got your main players in the wedding vendor game, which include: your wedding planners, photographers, music and entertainment people (ahem - wedding DJ’s ;), catering, and bar service. And in this episode, we are covering all the need-to-know things for each of these vendors.

We talk about: 

  • Need to have vendors vs nice to have vendors (Spoiler alert! There is no need to have but there is a difference in the experience)  
  • The difference between a wedding planner, a wedding coordinator, and a DIY wedding
  • The most important thing to think about when choosing a wedding photographer
  • The difference between having a live band, a DJ, and an MC
  • Some unique things about catering and bar services that you may have never thought of
  • What percentages of your wedding budget should go towards which vendors
  • All the questions you should ask each one of your vendors before you commit!
  • And how to get creative with your vendor selection

  • This episode is jam-packed with all our best tips when it comes to choosing your wedding vendors! But don’t sleep on Episode 003 which is part 2 of the wedding vendor conversation where we are going to talk about officiates, videographers, florists, bakers, and some other unique vendor options.

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley

    Bone Valley is a 9-episode true crime podcast. New episodes are available for free every Wednesday. In 1987, 18-year-old Michelle Schofield was found dead in a phosphate pit in Florida. Two years later, her husband Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Fifteen years later, previously unidentified fingerprints matched Jeremy Scott--a violent teenager who lived nearby. Jeremy has since confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. In this groundbreaking podcast, Bone Valley host Gilbert King uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for a string of murders. King is the author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove, which led to the exonerations of four innocent men. Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co. No1.
