Picking Professionals

Posted on January 31, 2019 at 2:00 PM

OOOOKKKAAAYYYY folks...let's chat about making decisions.   


I get it.  You start by Googling, which leads to Wedding Wire, which leads to The Knot, which leads to you realizing it's 3:00 a.m. and you have clearly gone off the rails.  There are about a bazillion wedding professionals out there  Then, you go to a bridal show and your brain almost explodes because you get information from another 10 million people.  You can't remember who was who, who you loved and who you hated.  Everyday 37 peopole that you work with or know give you unending suggestions and recommendations because they played someone's wedding or holiday party...they are a friend of a friend who promises a "great deal".  You sit at your kitchen table with stacks of information, with absolutely no idea how to decide even where to start.  


What you need is someone who knows these people and businesses.  You need honest answers to questions like "Is this guy a hot mess?"  or "Who is actually in charge over there?".  The things that are most important like...is this pro going to play well with others, show up on time, answer emails and phone calls, lie to us or make the event about themselves....nobody tells you.  Guess what kids...I do.  It took me years, as a young venue manager to realise that when I would ask questions like these from planners the responses I would get like "he's unique" or "she is very pleasant" really meant that they were going to make my life miserable and should be black listed forever.


But as a couple....how in the heck would you know that?  And here's the thing...there are soooooo many amazing wedding professionals, here in Upstate NY and beyond, who just kick butt and will knock your wedding or event out of the park!  But just like in every industry, there are some that are challenging.  And most importantly, not every personality is going to work together just like in real life.  There may be a DJ that one couple loves, that another couple absolutely hates...that is OKAY.  What is important is that you have help in navigating those personalities so that you don't get burned or seriously annoyed on your big day.
