Wedding Vendor Booking thoughts

I will continue to try to share helpful and thoughtful tips for your wedding and event planning. If you have questions or ideas for tips etc. please pass them on.

One question that comes up is:
When should you be looking to book the various vendors for your wedding?

I won't try to tell you if you should hire the DJ (me....) or the photographer first. What I will say is that a good time to start booking your vendors is shortly after you have the date and location nailed down. I have people booking from 2 months ahead to 14 months prior to your event date.

For me to book with you I will need a location, date, and start / end times. Sometimes we can book with a temporary timeframe listed to lock in the date and adjust as needed. But we do need to have the location and date to write an agreement.

All events include a written agreement detailing the services requested. All vendors should provide a written agreement to protect both sides and make sure each person knows what is expected.
