How to Overcome Conflicts with Wedding Suppliers and Reduce Wedding Stress

One of the best ways to reduce wedding stress is to avoid conflicts with your wedding suppliers.

Your wedding suppliers will want the best for you on your wedding day, but their priorities will not be the same as yours throughout your wedding planning. This often leads to conflict, or even just little stresses that add up to you being stressed about your wedding. You are allowed to get frustrated and stressed, it is your wedding day, you want it to be perfect, you need to try and overcome that stress to continue enjoying planning your wedding.

Avoid conflicts with wedding suppliers

Before overcoming conflicts, here are some tips on how to avoid conflicts with wedding vendors.

Tip 1 Set up ways of working:

Arrange time with your suppliers to understand their ways of working, how and when they will communicate with you, and what you can expect from them. This way there are no surprises.

Tip 2 Share what you care about:

Communicate clearly what you care most about, the wedding supplier will then know what to spend more time on.

Tip 3 Do the trials:

Having time to do your makeup and hair trials, food and cake tasting. Not only are they great fun and will give you a boost in excitement for your wedding, but you will feel more relaxed knowing you are happy with your decision.

Tip 4 Be clear and concise:

When you're communicating with your wedding vendor, be clear in your communication, and don’t send long confusing messages. This will help to avoid misunderstandings.

Overcome conflicts with wedding suppliers

If you have still managed to get into a small (or large) disagreement, or you are just upset, here are a few tips to overcome that conflict with your wedding supplier.

Tip 1 Take a breath:

When you're feeling stressed about your wedding, it's easy to say or do things that you'll regret later. Take a few deep breaths and try to calm down before you communicate with your supplier. Write the email and come back to it… don’t just press send immediately.

Tip 2 Look for solutions:

Always remain positive, there’s always a solution. Remain solutions focussed, share your ideas for a solution with the wedding vendor.

Tip 3 Be willing to compromise:

In some cases, you may need to be willing to compromise to resolve the conflict. This doesn't mean that you must give up everything, but it does mean being willing to meet your wedding supplier halfway.

Tip 4 Lean on The Wedding Hand:
