Shopping local has been trending for quite some time now, but we’re here to tell you why, when it comes to your vendors, local isn’t just trendy – it’s truly better!
1. Travel fees
Choosing vendors that are local to your venue location can cut down on travel/delivery fees!
2. They know each other
When your vendors are already familiar with each other, planning and day-of go much more smoothly. They will know what to expect and may even reach out to your other vendors to ensure everything goes as planned.
3. They know the venues
If your vendors are local to your venue’s area, they likely have done weddings at that venue before. That means they already know the venue’s policies, layout, and details such as electrical outlets.
4. They know the weather & traffic
If your vendors are local to the area they will have a better idea of what to expect from the weather and how to plan for it, as well as traffic patterns and how much time to leave for travel to ensure they are on time for your big day.
