Can You Trust Your Wedding Professionals?
When I saw Let’s Revel and knew the creatives behind it, I knew it was going to be incredible! It is a true space for YOU, as engaged couples, to get REAL ADVICE. It is such a breath of fresh air! The integrity behind this venture is one of true passion and love, which is a perfect segue into what I will share today.
It is a plain and simple part of any relationship, yet it’s often overlooked when booking your wedding professionals. Imagine it’s your wedding day. There are a few unexpected problems and minor delays have caused some panic and you need to rely on a pros to put out fires. Who would you trust?
Or imagine it’s months before your wedding days and you get to decide your reception meal and serving option. You want it to be fun and easy going but your parents want it to be more upscale. You’re not sure what to do and everyone is looking to you for answers.
Whose advice do you trust to help make your decision easier?
As a wedding professional, I am usually the one who helps couples plan one of their greatest days. Some of my greatest days include sitting with our clients and deciding where we will land with their vision. After all, we get to bring our clients’ visions to life along with a team who work well together, and that feels great.
How do you know you can trust a wedding professional?
These days, it’s easier than ever to write a review for yourself, or ask your friends to write a review for you. Very often in the wedding industry, people start as a side-job and sometimes misrepresent themselves or what they can do. So don’t just look at how many reviews someone has, look a little deeper.
Website - an easy-to-use site shares good content and guides you to the next step
An accessible professional email address helps, too
Social Media - being active on a few platforms helps users connect
Do you connect to their story? Do you like how they interact?
Professional referrals - after all, they’ve worked with them before
If you trust one professional, there’s a good chance their referral is solid
Portfolio - evidence that they can actually deliver is a great start
Sometimes the best way to share your vision is to start with another vision
Years on the job - anyone can say they’re great for a year or two
Seasoned pros are worth their fee almost every time
Price vs Value - you can definitely get lucky with a good deal
But you almost always get what you pay for
What do you do when you’ve found your trusted professionals?
You trust them.
“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.” - Ernest Hemingway
