Marketing & Business: Vendor to Vendor Relations

Oh the list of things I wish I had been told at the beginning! As a nervous, self-preoccupied newbie,  I was too engrossed in keeping my head above water to take the time and build relationships with the other wedding vendors. What a missed opportunity!
This is why I’m telling YOU to open your eyes and see the incredible potential you have to make your business grow through reaching out.

At every wedding, you have multiple vendors –

  • Caterer
  • Hair/makeup stylist or salon
  • Dress company
  • Rental company
  • DJ
  • Venue
  • Cake Bakery
  • Florist
  • Wedding Coordinator or Stylist
  • Officiant

And the list goes on. These people all have the potential to be your brand evangelists. Spread the love, grab their business cards (or have your second shooter on this) build strategic alliances, send them photos for their marketing –> they will love you and start talking about you. So easy. As Tim sanders explains, “great product [and services] spread through buzz and the power of human connectors” Follow up, help people get ahead. They will never forget you.

For the florist, I create these little 5×7 print cards as a thank you to display their work and give them something to hand their new clients. espefloral

Takes me maybe 20 min to readjust this template every time. Send off about 25 of them to the florist directly and you’ve one happy camper.

For an extra special venue that I want to network with, I might send a bottle of Bourbon,  or customized chocolates with my logo (Big plug for Nicole Herinckx and DOT SHOPPE )

Genuinely serve with generosity, you’ll be surprised at how much of that will return your way.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
