Make A List
Before you go looking for accessories, favors or gifts for your wedding, set down and make a list. Write it down! If you don't write it down, you will be a target for indecisiveness and sales pressure.
Your list should include the following outline:
- Your Wedding Theme
- Wedding Colors
- Weddnig Location
- Number of Expected Guests
- Members of Your Wedding Party (Maid of Honor, Bridesmaids, Flower Girl, Best Man, Groomsmen, Ring Bearer, Mother and Father of the Bride/Groom
- Accessory and Favor items needed
With this list, you now an have a deliberate path to pursue.
Your are now ready to go shopping. Before you start comparing prices, compare products! Too often, couples purchase items based on price, not what they really want. Quality
Also paramount to pricing is service quality. Finding a great price but receiving poor customer service can be stressful and disappointing! Availability of shipping is also a factor.
You've compared products for quality, styles, options and colors to suite your needs. You have also compared companies for service quality and availability. It is now time to compare prices.
If two or more companies offer the same quality products and services, pricing is a no-brainer. Go with the best price.
But, let's say Company A offers a lower price than Company B but company A does not provide a contact number or has no customer reviews. Company B's prices are a bit higher but you can speak to a live person and their website offers satisfied customer reviews. Save yourself potential stress or disaster and pay a little more.
Make Your Purchase
The steps and preparation listed above will make you an "informed consumer" with a deliberate agenda to purchase the items you need for your wedding with the best quality, service and prices.
Remember, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" and "You get what you pay for"
Health, Happiness and Prosperity to you in your new journey together.
