Booking Your Artist
Planning your wedding or event can be a pretty exciting time, but choosing and booking your artist can get a little overwhelming! Not only your artist but I think this post will relate to booking your vendors in general.
It’s never too early to book & lock in. It’s the beginning of 2018 and I’ve been asked about a few 2019 weddings already. It’s never too early, especially if you want to have your preferred vendor/s on YOUR day. Planning and booking early will most likely guarantee their availability that you can then lock them in.
Finding your artist can be quite the process, especially if you’re not sure where to start. So start by looking at their portfolios & then once you like what you see, you can move on to seeing what their availability is & rates are like & if they fit into your budget. You should then have a feel for their vibe and can also check out their reviews.
Lastly, remember wedding season, especially here in Ontario, it is exactly that – a season. Not as many people plan their weddings for the winter as they do for summer/ fall, so unless you lock down & book your preferred artist, it’s likely that they’ll be getting more requests for your same date. We can’t guarantee our availability or hold a date for potential clients as opposed to guaranteed clients.
Lock ’em down & happy planning! X
