Lesson 3: It's All the Buzz!
In conclusion, it would be remiss of me to not mention the most important token of appreciation. One that I am sure most vendors would desire more than any meal or any tip you could ever give them. I'm talking about referring their service to others.
A great vendor will make sure that your wedding goes off without a hitch. And if there are hitches, they are dealt with in a manner as to not draw your attention or your guest's attention to any issues that may arise. If you have a great experience, bragging about it is the best thank you of all.
So how do you create a buzz about your favorite vendors? Write a letter of thanks that outlines what is was about their services that made your wedding day so special. Vendors love having testimonials to add to their brochures and/or website. You could also request business cards and brochures to pass along to your friends and family members. And, the best advertising of all, word-of-mouth. If you are like most couples, you will want to brag about your big day to all who will listen. Why not excitedly share your good vendor experiences as well? As most wedding vendors are self-employed, helping them grow and maintain their business through referrals is the most welcome thank you of all.
So what do you say? Shower your wedding vendors with the tokens of appreciation discussed in these three lessons and I promise you that your wedding day experience will be all that much more memorable.
Until Next Time, Stay Fabulous!
