Professional reviews versus client reviews for wedding vendors
This is a topic I am so excited to write about. I truly believe in any industry you must connect with others in your industry to grow. Relationships with other vendors are just as important as relationships with clients. If you are a follower of OTGB, you know I love featuring our preferred vendors and value their opinions. As a bride or groom searching for the perfect wedding vendors, be sure to keep these points in mind when you are looking through those valuable vendor reviews!
Vendors have tons of experience when it comes to weddings. They can attend anywhere from 10 to 100 weddings per year. They have experience with numerous vendors within the same industry and even work multiple times with the same vendors.
Many of these vendors have developed great relationships with one another. They enjoy working together and have worked together on numerous occasions. They know that they can trust each other to get the job done and ensure the bride and groom have a fabulous day.
Word of mouth is huge in this industry. Pleasing clients will always guarantee word of mouth to their friends and family. But what about vendors? If a vendor is booked, chances are they have a list of vendors in their field that they trust and can refer work out to. This is so important. As a couple you want to know your vendor is someone that other vendors would recommend.
