There are several ways you can find the perfect Wedding Professional for your day. You can go to local wedding expos, check out different wedding directories online, the almighty pinterest, or take a more personable approach and go through social media.
Social Media is a great place to start because you can find real results (not just what wedding vendors want you to see). You can hear from real people about their experience with that professional and you may even know one of their past clients.
The 2 best social media platforms to find wedding vendors is on Instagram and Facebook. Here’s why:
On Instagram, you can use hashtags to find exactly who you’re looking for. For example, if you’re having your wedding at the Hotel Monaco in Baltimore and looking for a photographer, you could search for the following hashtags: #BaltimoreWeddingPhotographer, #HotelMonacoWedding, #DCWeddingPhotographer, #BaltimoreWedding, #BaltimoreWeddingPhotography, ect. You then will be able to see everyone who uses that category and find that one account that speaks to you. You can view all of their favorite work in one place and get to read a little bit about why they love what they do.
On Facebook, it gets more personal. You can look up certain Wedding Vendors and view their business page. view links to their website and blogs, as well as read real reviews from past clients. You can scroll through digital albums of all of their past events and get a feel for their style.
By fully checking out a business’ social media platform(s), you will get a real sense of who you’re potentially trusting with one of the most important days of your life.
Our Tips: Look for consistency, freshness and transparency when they post. Read the good reviews but really pay attention to any bad reviews. Ask questions and let them know your expectations :)
That’s all for today! Happy Wedding Planning!
