Hi brides to be! I'm getting married in two weeks (EEEK!) and I'm super organised so all my suppliers were sorted and completely paid off by the beginning of last month. I'm just a bit nervous that as I've not had constant communication with most of them that details might not be completely right or something like that (I know - I'm a massive control freak!) Did anyone message around their suppliers a week or so before just to finalise all the details and check everything is correct? I don't want to be a pest in peak wedding season!!
I am a control freak too and would be in the same place you are now. I think you are perfectly within your rights to ring them and confirm everything peak season or not. They are meant to be offering you a service for one of the most special days of your life so I am sure they wont mind. x
p.s. Have a fabulous day x
Hi I would phone just to put your mind at rest :)
Yes I agree I would phone or email just to confirm x
I am way off my wedding yet but I'm also a control freak so would totally be ringing them to check x
Totally im the same boat, married two weeks tomorrow, I like hving emails etc to confirm, hvnt heard from a few places since last January :( xx
My MOH bought me a wedding planner that has a to do list and in that it says to confirm with all suppliers a week before.
I'm not there yet (Sep 2018) but will absolutely be sending emails 2 weeks prior to confirm with all my suppliers!! Best of luck for your special day x
My husband is a wedding supplier and when he gets phone calls or emails like that, he never minds (even though he normally tries to be the one contacting the bride to finalise details instead of having the bride do the chasing). :)
I'm married in 2 days and I'm emailing to make sure everything's ok
I'm also in the same position, getting married in 2 weeks Saturday, I emailed all of my suppliers with final details last week and have had responses from most of them now(although some took a while for a reply) i'm still waiting for an email from the caterers with final invoice after I emailed them last Tuesday with final numbers, im such a control freak and have been checking my emails constantly but feel 100% better for emailing to make sure details are all correct. I would email them all and if no reply then maybe middle of next week give them a quick phone call :) I'm calling the caterers on Monday if I hear nothing by then. Xxx
I spoke to every supplier the week leading up to the wedding- they didn't mind- and even requested that my caterer meet me at the venue in the Friday as she was running the show as far as the day food and drink went. It made me feel a lot better about the day!
Have a great day! X
Yes for piece of mind. Give yourself a day just to reconnect with all your suppliers and venues.
Send a little email or call just to put your own mind at rest :) they won't mind at all!
Yes, I def would contact them!!
In the weeks leading up to our wedding we contacted every supplier to make sure they knew what we wanted!! We met with a couple aswell as it was mainly over calls and e-mailed we had spoke. So I would start contacting them now and making sure they know exactly how you want everything!! Xx
Definitely. You're paying so nothing wrong with another chat. We had a Skype chat with our photographer the other week to talk in more details about all our ideas for the day.
I'm getting married on Sat and we have spoken to all suppliers this week as a final check
Phone. It will put your mind at ease. And don't worry about being a nuisance - this is one occasion where you get to be one. When you're spending a lot of money, you're quite right to want to know it's all going to happen the way you want it. Have a wonderful day.x
Yeah we did.... They won't be offended or anything. If it gives you peace of mind then do it!!!
Ohhh definitely ring.. Don't email...that way it's a verbal communication!!! they can ignore emails x
I'd ring round all your suppliers anyway just to double check everything and put your mind at ease x
Yes! I was exactly the same and had all paid off months in advance! It's a good idea to message and check through that everything is right because it will ease your mind slightly and gives you opportunity to change anything that's not to your liking!
I am a photographer and if a couple want to ring or email me that's fine. I like to keep in touch anyway but never mind being contacted if a couple wants to check stuff with me.
You are paying for their services and you want everything to be just right on your big day. Call them if you want, they should be expecting that kind of thing, after all that's what you have paid them for
I get married in 2 weeks too and I've been exactly the same with the organising. All suppliers were sorted months ago and I've contacted them all over the last week or so to confirm arrangements. Peace of mind!
I will certainly be doing the same when it's that close to our date, I like to be certain of everything and just make sure I have done as much as I possibly can to help things go smoothly :) it is their jobs so they shouldn't mind at all that you are checking details :) enjoy your big day!!!!
Me to and don't forget were paying them so were with in our rights to check iv got 12 weeks left and about 2 weeks before I will be phoning and checking everything is ok x
Feel the same i keep phoning people they must think oh no not that woman again lol, its an expensive day who cares if your always phoning xxx
My job list for tomorrow is ring dj and caterer and photographer to sort stuff. My wedding planner is sorting venue stuff out and florist is on with flowers. Im so controlling im supervising the wedding planners on the day before i get ready!
Give them a call - it's their job, i'm sure they won't mind. I would call 2 weeks before, then a week before but I don't mind being a pest as I'm a bit of a perfectionist lol
