You ready???

The one and only tidbit for Part Three is….

Fall is the busiest time of year for wedding vendors.

So, let’s break this down a bit and what all it means...

  • Wedding vendors are in full wedding mode. Most likely, your vendors have a wedding every single weekend, if not double or triple hitters. This means it may be a struggle for vendors to focus on your wedding that is further out (i.e. months to a year or more out) during fall season.

  • Wedding vendors are still excited about your wedding! With that being said, they are giving their utmost attention to their fall couples just as they will give their upmost attention to couples in winter or spring of the following year.

  • Wedding vendors response time right now is most likely going to take up to 72 hours. Please, please, please be respectful of their boundaries. Most vendors will take Mondays off to recoup from a strenuous work weekend, too. They are not ignoring your email or voicemail. They are simply keeping their office hour boundaries in place so they don’t burnout in a hectic season before your wedding day. The last thing you want is a burnt out wedding vendor, but that’s a blog post for another day.

  • If by chance your vendor team has a weekend off this fall season, they do not want to spend their weekend off doing wedding-related things. They will be spending time with their family and friends enjoying the holiday season.

  • Your vendors are human and there is a lot of information they are retaining from weekend to weekend. Know that if they ask a question twice, it’s not that they are being forgetful. They are simply wanting to dot all their i’s and cross all their t’s.

  • Once fall wedding season wraps up, your vendors usually like to limit their January and February wedding dates. This is so they can focus back on the year ahead and show some love, so to speak, to the couples getting married that year that may have felt as if communication was slower during the fall. To reiterate, communication will be slower in the fall for weddings months or further out. And, it’s not because vendors are trying ignore you. They are just busy.

Well, that’s a wrap on this blog series. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at The WBB. Just send us an email.
