Chances are you have attended one of the recent bridal shows and are just now getting around to looking through the business cards and brochures you received from each of the booths. Although it may seem daunting to try to remember who was who, we suggest organizing the brochures and business cards by separating the vendors who you have already made appointments with or plan on meeting. If you have already selected your wedding coordinator, you can go through the rest of the cards together so that your coordinator can assist you putting a list together of vendors you are interested in meeting with. Your coordinator can accompany you to your consultations if you wish, or give you some pointers on questions to ask during the meeting. You will want to have some of your basic information ready for your meeting such as your approximate date & guest count, colors/theme and a rough budget outline.
It is important not to feel rushed during your meeting, and if needed you can always set up a phone meeting with the vendor in a few days to give yourself some time to think and then go over any additional questions before you sign your agreement.
