The pressure of planning an event, be it a wedding or party, can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. The last thing you want to worry about is whether your suppliers are reliable!
From caterers to event hire suppliers there is always a need for some outside help. But the question is – how do you choose the right supplier for your event?
You want your supplier to enhance your event so what you need to look for is price, quality, and reliability. However, before you even start researching you must first decide what sort of event you are hosting. The choice available in all aspects of event hire is so enormous that it can quickly become confusing. Take your time, work out your budget and style and stick to it. Inevitably your budget will decide where the money is spent and it is up to you to prioritise. Some prefer to spend their money on the caterers, others would rather outsource the music. The choice is yours.
Price: Budget can be one of the biggest restraints when planning an event. If your budget is tight do not think that the cheapest supplier is going to necessarily be the best, because often this is not the case. Have a look at the quality of their products and see if you are getting value for money. Equally the most expensive is not necessarily the best either. Do some research or talk to your friends who have organised a similar event. There is nothing better than personal recommendation.
Quality: Obviously cost is an important factor in finding suppliers, but quality needs to be regarded highly as well. Your event might rely on the quality of these products so don’t sell yourself short. Ask questions and see if you can see the products or previous work so you can get idea of how your finished event will look.
Reliability: You need to make sure your supplier is reliable and is flexible in suiting your requirements. If there happens to be any last minute changes with your event, make sure you have previously discussed with your supplies to see if they are still willing to suit your needs. Make sure you like them, make sure they understand you.
