In the wedding industry services that work together tend to stay in business longer. It really is “Who you know” as everyone knows who they will work with vs. who they won’t. To build trust in venues & even your competition in this industry will prove to be beneficial too. The  more you network & get to know folks the better. Here are certain businesses you should connect with first:

1. venues

2. Wedding & Event planners

3. Jewelry stores

4. flower shops

And the list goes on. The point is to build your network. If you are going to hire any of these services ask them about each other. You will start to hear the same names after a while and that will tell you who knows their trade best. Plus who works the most. Any business that works a lot tends to be a safe bet for your dollar.
