Every bride wants to be given the best on her wedding, and so it's common to ask for trial sessions and mock-ups before the big day. However, at one time or another, we've heard dreadful stories about suppliers who didn't deliver what they've promised. To protect yourself from these frustrating situations, check out our list of tips on striking secure agreements with suppliers.


CHECK YOUR SUPPLIER'S REPUTATION

Before contacting a desired supplier, be sure that you've done extensive research on their background and reputation. Don't just rely on their ads and websites to learn about their products and services. Instead, visit forums and search for testimonials from the supplier's former customers. Also, it won't hurt to ask your friends for their recommended suppliers.


BE CONCRETE AND SPECIFIC


Be it your gown, bouquet or reception menu, be sure that you describe what you want as concretely as possible. Show your supplier photos of pegs or inspiration so that you can steer them in the right direction--and remember to ask if they can really commit to your desired output.


KEEP COPIES OF PROPOSALS OR PROOFS, AND DUPLICATE COPIES OF CONTRACTS


When they propose a specific offer or suggest something which they promise to deliver rightfully, keep copies of these documents for proof and future reference. These will back you up in case a representative promised to give you a discount, and you'll be dealing with another representative next time. Also, the documents will protect you if the supplier doesn't meet your expectations. 

Keep certified true copies of your contracts. A reputable supplier should be able to automatically provide you with a copy of the contract--if there's any sign of hesitance from the supplier, then you should reconsider dealing with the supplier.


ASK FOR AN OFFICIAL RECEIPT WITH A BUSINESS TIN


When securing a deal with a down payment, be sure that they give you an official receipt with a corresponding business Tax Identification Number (TIN). Have copies of receipts made, and keep them in one bag or envelope. Your receipts will serve as your proof purchase and reference in case the supplier does not deliver what is cited in your contract.
