The Importance of Having A Vendors Meeting

I don't know if this happens to just me or to other event planners as well. I was speaking with a couple of colleagues recently and they all had a thing or two to say about some vendors who feel the need not to attend a vendors meeting and then come on the event day to create a scene. 

If planners can make out time to fix a date for a vendors meeting then I think it will only be fair for the vendors to attend it. 

Vendors meeting is not a luxury; it is one of the crucial aspects when planning a wedding. Many times, we have vendors missing details or not knowing, for instance, the colour of the day as a decorator. 

Sometimes, a bride only hires a day-of Coordinator and may skip one or two things. Hence, the need for a vendors meeting. 

It is during this vendors meeting that all vendors can come together to see how they can work together as one big team to create a successful event. For example, we all know that there is always this feud between the band and DJ. At a vendors meeting, they can talk about their differences and which aspects of the programme they will be responsible for, thereby allowing peace to reign on the day of the event.

The importance of the vendors meeting is basically to go over all the details so that nothing is missed out. Also to see the other vendors that will be working on the day, to go over the floor plan for the event, talk about balances where need be, bring up suggestions as to how the event can run successfully without hitches.

This is an appeal to vendors out there, please make our work easier and please attend vendors meeting when asked to.
