Behind the Veil: Etiquette 101 – Vendor to Vendor

Behind the Veil: Etiquette 101 – Vendor to Vendor

-Vendor to Vendor Etiquette 101-
As vendors we are all trying to make our Brides day be a dream come true. In order for this to happen, we all need to work together and be kind to one another. Here are some tips to help ensure that vendors are respecting each other.

It is so important to be up front about how much time you need to complete your task and then stick to it. Timelines are made for a reason, there is a domino effect that happens when vendors take too long and sadly the last vendor ends up taking most of the brunt for it. Try to keep other vendors informed if you need more time so that they can rearrange and try to stay on the schedule. Time is money so try to be fair to the other vendors that are waiting on you to finish in order to for them to start.

If everyone is organized it makes things run much more smoothly. On the day of the wedding if you are sharing a space with another vendor it is very respectful to keep your station neat and organized so that it is easier for you both to work together.




3) Don’t be afraid to offer referrals. If a bride asks you if you know any chefs, and you worked with a great caterer at your last wedding, then give their information. It is greatly appreciated and in most situations the favor is reciprocated. As vendors we rely a lot on referrals so let’s all help each other out!

If a bride asks your opinion, certainly be truthful, but there is a right way and a wrong way of doing that. On the wedding day, we all have the same goal, so there is no need to be disrespectful with other vendors. Speak kindly and respectfully to one another. If a vendor is in your way, simply ask them nicely to move. The old saying that you attract more fly’s with honey than vinegar is very true. You never know who is watching you and if you are making a scene, a potential bride that is at the venue may not book you because of it.




5) Be kind online. If you are featuring a wedding you were a part of it is always nice to give credit where credit is due, so list the other vendors involved in the wedding. Tagging other vendors is always great as well, it not only helps the person you are tagging but it helps you too, as your photo will come up when the other vendor is searched online.
