Hire Vendors Who Consistently Work At Your Chosen Venue
Weddings are extremely visual. From the flowers, to the decor, to the wedding photography - everything about your special day will lend a story to your relationship together, and who you are as a couple. And while the internet is great for getting an idea of what your venue and surrounding landscapes will look like, it is hard to get a true feeling - an emotional tie if you will - to the place in Michigan that you will be getting married.
Here’s the key:
Hire vendors who are very familiar with your ceremony and reception location. They can be your eyes and ears.
Choose vendors who are willing to physically do some leg work for you. Chances are, your wedding photographers and planners have seen dozens of different wedding timelines, styles, and goals throughout the years, and can help guide you in where to perfectly put the dessert table, or the best local locations to get your wedding photos done on the beach.
Don’t be afraid to ask your wedding photographer questions about how your venue operates, where the optimal lighting is, and where they suggest doing all of your wedding party, and bride and groom portraits. Your Michigan wedding photographer should be thrilled to give you input. We love the “golden hour” light after all! This will also give you a great visual when you finally arrive to start setting up for your wedding, and minimize any surprises along the way.
