When planning your wedding in Mexico, Italy, or any other locations, it is important to build what we'd like to call your vendor team. These are the group of people who will cater to your wedding and make your day go just how you've dreamed it. So, do you have any of them in mind?

Here are some tips from me on the vendors you'll need and some recommendations too.

  • A Planner

A wedding planner is a necessity for your wedding, especially if you're having a destination wedding. You won't be around to do all the meetings, checks, and balances that need to be done for the sake of your wedding's success. A wedding planner who is based at the destination of your wedding can help you do that.

  • Venue

Without a venue, your wedding can't hold, so this vendor is crucial. Your wedding venue will also set the tone for your whole celebration, so please make sure that you choose a venue that works well with your wedding theme. You should also decide if you want to hold your ceremony and your reception in one place or at separate venues.

  • Hair and Makeup Artist

Your wedding pictures will be with you for the rest of your life, so you need to look good in them. One of the ways to ensure this is by selecting a hairstylist and a makeup artist who knows what they're doing. If you can, you should also have a prewedding trial, so you can be sure that they're the ones for you.

  • Attire

This involves your wedding dress, the groom's tuxedo, and sometimes the clothes for your wedding party. Are you buying new ones, preloved ones or renting? Make sure to go early for these, so there is enough time to make adjustments if need be.

  • Photographer

Wedding photos are a way to capture and preserve the special moments at your wedding. Here at Susanna Antichi Photography, we've got you covered with your wedding photography. You'll be able to relive the incredible moments at your wedding with the fantastic photos for your wedding that you get from me.

  • Music Professionals

How do you intend for the music at your wedding to go? Do you want a wedding band or a DJ? Ensure that whoever you choose knows what they're doing because good entertainment is one of the requirements for a memorable wedding.

  • Florist

Your florist will take care of your bouquet, centerpieces, and the other kind of floral arrangements that you have at your wedding according to your wishes.

  • Caterer/Cake Baker

If there's one reason why most people attend weddings, it is for the wedding food. Your caterer will handle your wedding menu and take care of whatever dietary requirements that you might have. Some catering companies can also manage your cake, but you can get a baker for your wedding where they don't. You might even be lucky to get a venue that comes with your caterer and baker as part of your wedding package.

  • Officiant

You need an officiant to join you both in marriage and, in most cases, make your wedding legal. Try to hire an officiant that you are comfortable and free with.

  • Jeweler

Remember that you'll need actual wedding bands to exchange during your wedding ceremony. A jeweler is who you'll get them from and possibly go back to for a resizing to make sure that they're the right fit for you both.

  • A Favors Vendor

Favors are a great way to thank your guests for coming to celebrate your weddings with you. They are also a way to give them something to remember you with. Will you be going DIY with your wedding favors or buying them directly? It would be best to make this decision quickly because it is vital and will affect your budget.

  • A Rental Company

Suppose you're having your wedding at a location where you need to rent chairs, tables, décor, and dinnerware. In that case, a rental company will help you.

  • The Transportation Company

You can either choose to transport all your guests to your wedding venue or just transport your wedding party. Your couple getaway car will also be gotten from a transportation company so that you and your partner can leave in style. Please note that you can add or remove things from this list, depending on your wedding's needs.

A collection of trusted referrals:

I have compiled a list of vendors, artists and service providers that I have worked with over the past ten years. They do not work with me and therefore I cannot be held accountable for your personal experiences with them.
Please research your choices thoroughly, read reviews of each company and talk with them extensively before deciding!

I love creating great images but also making dure your wedding day is everything you wanted. So scroll down and tell them I said "Hi".
