Trusting Your Vendors

Everyone has different perceptions of trust. One can be overly trusting, others can be fearful of trust and some have just the right amount of trust. When it comes to pulling together your wedding vendors, having trust in them is key.

You should have gotten a sense of trust when you met with them. Here are three rules to live by with trusting your wedding vendors:

1) Trust that they will perform to the best of their ability
2) Trust that they will ensure that your wedding day is simply lovely
3) Trust that they have the knowledge and expertise to get YOU through your wedding day

As a planner who deals predominantly with couples who are engaged and wedding planning for the first time, I see rule #3 broken more times than I can count. You've hired these professionals for a specific reason: they are the professionals. They've been working in / around the wedding industry for long enough to know what is going on. They've got an awesome skill base, they have more knowledge about their niche than most people. They are experienced.

If you hired them, you must trust them {at least theoretically}, so listen to them. Listen to their expertise. Trust in their experience, advice and knowledge. Chances are, they know what they are talking about. If you disagree, trust in them that they will steer you right.

Trust in your wedding vendors, their insight is invaluable.
