The Ideal Bride

March 25, 2011  |  Wedding Tips

What are vendors looking for when they meet with a new potential client?

It’s not really discussed. For the most part, that first consult is seen as a time when brides pick whether they want to work with a vendor but vendors are also looking for qualities in clients they feel they will work best with. Every vendors is different but there are a few basic things all vendors look for:

Positive attitude

Appreciative of their work instead of demanding

Trusting of their knowledge and experience

Open to suggestion and ideas

Easy to work with


I work with lots of vendors that offer my brides service above and beyond what’s expected and even paid for. Why is that?? Because I’ve built relationships with them. How can you receive that kind of service?

Be there ideal client.

*This isn’t a magic potion but it will make things more likely.*

Vendors, what are brides looking for in their ideal vendor?  Someone who:

Communicates quickly

Is Accommodating

Doesn’t make brides feel like a number

Offers great value

I’ve got a wedding today that I’m about to head out to and just wanted to give a few tips to help you plan for the wedding day. If you’d like to learn more about this, feel free to sign up for our next Fete Connection, taking place April 30.

Here are a few questions to ask:

Who is taking home presents? Decor? Food?

Who is cutting the cake?

Who is orchestrating the rehearsal and ceremony?

What will the flow of the reception be?

Are there any balances that need to be paid on the wedding day?

If you don’t have a wedding planner, go over these things with family members and see if you can delegate some of these roles. If it’s planned out beforehand, the day will run smoother and you can spend more time on the dance floor and less time facilitating logistic.

Brides, I hope this week’s tips have been helpful! Best of luck on all your planning!
