8 Vendors You Must Consider Having At Your Wedding

Weddings involve a lot of moving parts and planning, but everything will be that much easier if you hire a great vendors who all understand exactly what it takes to make a wedding run smoothly. Whether you’re trying to plan a wedding on a tight budget or are planning the wedding of your dreams, you need to consider your vendor team carefully. Here are 8 vendors you must consider having at your wedding: 

Wedding Photographer and/or Videographer Vendors

While there won’t be many couples who opt to only have a videographer at their weddings, but it may be an option if you’re looking for a professional to capture the day in motion and rely on your friends and family for stills. Investing in a great wedding photographer is always worth it, and the more experienced they are the more creative and romantic your pictures will be. Remember these are the pictures you’ll show your future family! 


For most couples, one of the biggest considerations of their wedding is the food they’ll serve as it sets the mood for the whole reception. Are you a couple who wants to have a bbq? Do you want to provide buffet food throughout the night? Or do you want a full three (or more!) course meal served by an esteemed chef? Great caterers get booked well in advance, so start searching for yours as soon as possible. 

Wedding Planner 

Do you know what makes your wedding day a relatively stress-free affair? A wedding planner! These super-organized guys and gals will do whatever it takes to ensure you get the day of your dreams. If you can’t afford a full-service planner a day-only planner is absolutely worth the money. 


Your venue will define the theme and feel of your wedding, so choose carefully. You can choose a wedding barn out in the country for a beautiful summer evening wedding, a historic ballroom, or book two separate venues for your ceremony and reception, as you’ll likely need to do if you’re having a religious ceremony. Some venues simply provide you with the space while others will take care of everything, so decide what you want and what your budget will allow. 

Cake Baker 

All wedding guests will be on the lookout for your cake, both to look at how beautifully crafted it is and in the hopes of eating a piece! A professional baker will be able to create a unique cake for you that represents or matches your wedding theme perfectly. Cutting the cake is a big moment, so spend time looking for the right baker close to your venue. 


A great officiant can take a normal ceremony and turn it into something beautiful, unique, or even funny if you want them to. Some couples choose to have a friend or family member officiate their wedding, but there are a huge number of professionals who will be able to seamlessly move you through your ceremony, even if you’re shaking with nerves. 


Have you considered how you’ll get to the wedding? If not, now is the time! How you choose to arrive at your ceremony is an individual decision but can easily be aligned with any theme, from an elegant horse and carriage to a limo, to an exotic sports car. An experienced wedding transportation company will make sure you stay relaxed and get to where you need to be on time. 

Music Provider 

Finally, what kind of music do you want your first dance to be to? Some couples choose to have a live musician play at the dinner and a DJ in the evening, while others love a live band who will play crowd-pleaser after crowd-pleaser. An experienced wedding band or DJ will be able to set up the night before the wedding and be exactly where you need them to be and ready to entertain your guests long into the night on the big day.  

The vendors listed above are essential for your wedding to go smoothly. But as another step to make sure your wedding is worry free, we recommend you purchase wedding insurance. This coverage can be purchased to make sure you are not at risk of a financial loss if things don’t go as planned on your big day. Check out Eventsured.com to get more information.
