No wedding starts flawlessly without an issue of some kind. Most of them for the most part, are great and the things that go wrong are minor inconveniences, but there are so many things that can go wrong, and do.
Usually because someone went with a discounted vendor, or a friend that does something as a hobby, but not always. Sometimes I'm surprised and things happen from seasoned vendors. Let's face it, we're all human and make mistakes. Unfortunately our mistakes impact special days, leaving brideshttps://studio.pixpa.com/builder/2342123/blog/wedding-day-contingency-plan-who-do-you-contact-when-things-go-wrong/edit-post# crying, and people talking, and not in a good way.
Below is a list I've compiled of things to think about when contracting vendors. For every vendor you hire, please make sure you know who’s on duty at the specified time they’re to be there for you and who they're are held accountable by should they not fulfill their obligations.
if you are arriving for makeup and hair at your venue before they technically open, make sure you have not only their coordinators phone numbers but who is responsible for the venue should they not show up. Who can you call to let you in if they don’t arrive by a specified time.
Wedding planner / Venue contract
if an error on their part, causes your timeline to be affected, and those changes cause you additional money, will they assume responsibility for those additional charges? Will they either refund you or deduct that amount from your total balance due?
in your contract make sure it specifies who to call if there is an issue with what’s been delivered. And who to call if they don’t respond in a specified period of time.
Makeup & Hair -
make sure you have the owners contact info in addition to your artist info. If they don’t show up who is responsible for dealing with it? That’s who’s number you want.
