Next? Find your entertainment and photographer. I placed these two together because your photographer and DJ/band are going to help you remember your special day. When picking the right DJ or photographer that best suits your wedding you need to make sure you are asking the right questions. To ask the right questions you will need to meet these people. You cannot tell what kind of personality someone may have over an email. For example…how many times have you received a text from a close friend and took it the wrong way? Same goes for this scenario. In order to get a better feel for your DJ and photographer you need to meet them face to face. When meeting them make sure you are relaxed and being yourselves because they are trying to make sure they get a better idea of who you and your fiance are as well. Have fun and go grab a cup of coffee. A good DJ or photographer are there to listen to you. Tell he or she about your big day, all the fun details, what you are looking for, what kind of mood the wedding will be (intimate or big with tons of friends and family), etc. Afterwards, make sure you give them the same courtsey. Let them tell you about them and who they are and what they represent and most importantly… how they’re going to make your day the best day of your life!
Just remember that this is your wedding. You have envisioned this day since you were 5 and dressing up or heck…since you got engaged. Either way it is a day you will cherish so make sure to take your time with getting the right team to help you make your dream wedding come true.
