10 reasons to use recommended suppliers

Every venue will have a list of recommended suppliers – but should you use them? Wedding coordinators from the De Vere Hotel group advise on why you should

They know the venue inside out and will know what will work. They also know the staff at the venue and can liase with them directly.”

Zoe Jones, De Vere Venues Highfield Park, near Hook, Hampshire

“Recommended photographers know the venue and great photo opportunities. Using a recommended photographer gives you the confidence they are going to be trustworthy as the venue trusts them and also give you the confidence they know the best places to take photos and will maximise the time they have.”

Samantha Keane, De Vere Venues Denham Grove, Buckinghamshire

“Always meet with suppliers before you decide to go with them. They may be preferred to the venue, but may not mesh with you.”

Michelle Moore, De Vere Venues Devonport House, Greenwich

“They know the rooms and sizes – the suppliers will know what works best in the room so will be able to help you advise you when discussing your visions for your wedding day.”

Samantha Keane, De Vere Venues Denham Grove, Buckinghamshire

“They are known to be reliable by the venue and they help remove stress from your big day so you can relax and enjoy it.

Rachel Stead, De Vere Venues Warbrook House and Grange

“They can give you advice on how things look in the venue, eg tall centrepieces work in the marquee as we have high ceilings.”

Sophie Allum, De Vere Venues Hunton Park, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire

“Often preferred suppliers have a discounted rate discussed with the venue that they can then pass along to you.”

Michelle Moore, De Vere Venues Devonport House, Greenwich

“Most recommended suppliers will attend the venues wedding fairs. You can discuss you requirements with them and booking at the wedding fair means they usually have offers running on the day.

Zoe Jones, De Vere Venues Highfield Park, near Hook, Hampshire

“They are usually local so, if anything happened to go wrong on the day they are close to their shop and would be able to get back and forth without any dramas.”

Michelle Moore, De Vere Venues Devonport House, Greenwich

"They will also have pictures of previous weddings that have taken place in the venue so you can see what certain colours and styles look like.”

Sophie Allum, De Vere Venues Hunton Park, Kings Langley, Hertfordshire
