7. Day-of Coordinator– If you chose to forego hiring a wedding planner, do not also overlook hiring a wedding day of coordinator!! Truly, a coordinator is a necessity if you want to fully enjoy your day, allow your family to fully enjoy your wedding day, and ensure that all of the other vendors that you hired and timelines you worked so hard on are tied together perfectly!
Additionally, I place this vendor here because they will often have suggestions for who to hire for the vendors you have yet to book.
8. Videographer– To be or not to be, that is the question. Er, I guess, to book or not to book. Personally, I love my talented videographer friends and their work is truly amazing! Try your best to channel your future self- will you want to look back and watch this day unfold again and again?
9. DJ/Musicians– Let the beat drop!!
10. Cake/Dessert vendor– As I stated with your catering options… DO ALL THE TASTINGS. Personal favorite here.
11. Rentals Vendor– Tables, chairs, linens, centerpiece decorations, altars, backdrops, greenery walls, marquee letters, additional furniture/seating, you name it, you can rent it.
12. Hair & Makeup– Do not overlook this one!! End game here- to help you not only look, but FEEL like your best self on your wedding day.
So, there you have it! To answer the question, “What order should I book my wedding vendors in?” refer back to this list as often as needed. If you think you could use a little extra help, let me know! I’d love to offer suggestions, additional resource, even local vendor recommendations. Coming up next time, what to consider when booking your vendors… See ya then!
