So we’re winding down and heading into three weeks before the big day. And I must say, I’m ready. All of this preparation, organization, minor ocd… but it’s been totally worth it thus far. I can now enjoy the rest of the weeks without having to worry about the diy programs, gifts, outfits, readings, timeline, etc. Us ladies who aren’t procrastinators should be applauded and not looked upon and called bridezillas. 🙂
We met with our hotel (guest accommodations) coordinator yesterday to finalize all of our blocked rooms, rates, the conference room we’re reserving, and any other special requests that we made for our guests. She’s been so very helpful and accommodating thoughout this whole wedding process. She’s been superb. She’s answered my twenty million questions and changes to our blocked hotel suites via email. Quick too! I love it when vendors reply back quickly! At the end of the appointment she mentioned that it was great that we were so organized – prepared with good questions. I guess she’s worked in the hospitality industry for awhile and it’s rare to see couples who are like this.
So **pat on the back Mr. and Miss Apple**. It felt so good to hear that.
I guess this leads to my main post – Wedding Vendors.
From the very beginning of wedding planning, I really had no idea what I was getting into. With the wealth of “free” information via world wide web, the wedding industry is pretty cut throat – there are so many choices and options, it’s really hard to narrow it down to just one. Having engulfed myself in “everything” wedding, I have so much respect for people who can work in this industry. It’s high stress, detail oriented like no other, customer friendly, trend setting, creative, the list goes on and on….
How has it been working with wedding vendors? Do you see any difference between wedding vendors and non wedding related vendors?
