This blog post should have entitled, “TRYING to meet your wedding vendors during the holidays”. Because that’s really the way it is.
We understand, holidays is when you are off work or when you have a scheduled vacation/visit in town. Makes sense that you would like to try to knock out some meetings and get some wedding planning work done.
Please know, for most wedding vendors (your caterers, florists, bakers, DJ’s, venues) may be at the busiest. Especially if they service all types of clients, not just weddings. They are swamped, tired and here is a little known secret, sometimes cranky and stressed out.
Now they may be able to fit you in, especially if you have reserved the meeting way in advance. But please don’t be disappointed if you are cruising into town and they aren’t able to fit you into your schedule. There are only so many hours in the day and holiday parties will take priority over choosing your menu for your June 2014 wedding. They hope you will all understand.
So if possible, our advice is to wait until you can have their undivided attention. Take a break from the planning. Spend some time with your family and friends. Drink some egg nog and have a second piece of pie.
With that said, WE are available on the Saturday after Thanksgiving … we have a few slots open right now. So give us a call! 812.250.1968 or email at staff(at)planningforever.com
ps This is such a good post, that we wrote something similar in 2008.
