weddings made easy
Planning a wedding is like choreographing a symphony of love, with vendors playing their own melodious roles. Whether you’re searching for the perfect wedding photographer, a talented videographer, or any other vendors, providing them with accurate and comprehensive information is essential. Here are some key pieces of information you’ll want to compile:
Event Timeline: Mapping out your wedding day timeline is crucial for vendors to ensure they capture every magical moment. From pre-ceremony preparations to the grand finale, having a detailed schedule allows photographers and videographers to be at the right place at the right time.
Venue Details: Your chosen venue is not only the backdrop for your celebration but also a canvas for creativity. Share detailed venue information, such as layout, lighting conditions, and any restrictions, so your photography and videography team can plan accordingly.
Shot List: Every couple has unique preferences when it comes to capturing memories. Providing a shot list helps your photographers and videographers understand the moments that matter most to you, whether it’s a candid shot of your grandparents dancing or a close-up of your hand-in-hand exchange of rings.
Family and Bridal Party Information: Knowing the names and relationships of key family members and bridal party members ensures that no important group photo or intimate moment goes unnoticed.
Special Requests or Themes: If you have any specific themes, poses, or creative ideas in mind, sharing them with your vendors sparks the imagination and lets them tailor their services to your vision.
To simplify this process (because who wants to be bogged down with the boring stuff?) and empower you to be the kind of bride that has your vendors thanking YOU, I’ve created a collection of free customizable forms. These resources are designed to alleviate stress, save time, and guarantee that nothing slips through the cracks.
