Protect Your Big Day

- With all the excitement, details, and yes, stress of planning a wedding, it can seem like an overwhelming project at times. Most weddings take months of planning, so it's important to find vendors and wedding professionals you can trust.

From selecting a reception site to choosing your wedding rings, every piece requires research to make sure you're getting what you want -- and getting what you paid for!

"Unfortunately, there are shady businesses in the wedding industry," says Steve Blackwell of e- Wedding Bands, one of the Web's most trusted sites. "We've heard from brides and grooms who've come to us after learning they've been given an inferior product. That's why we offer a guarantee, client references and the seal of the Better Business Bureau on our site."

Recently married brides and grooms are the best way to find vendors. Ask family, friends and co-workers about their experiences. Find out not only if things turned out the way they wanted, but also what their working relationship with their vendors was like. Did the florist stay on budget? Did the DJ honor their do-not-play list? Was the caterer good about returning phone calls?

When you meet with a potential vendor, remember that you are the one doing the interviewing. Know your budget before you start, ask for referrals and make sure you get everything in writing.

As you meet with wedding professionals, be sure to find out the following:

* Who will be working on this wedding? You may be meeting with the company's owner, but find out that an assistant or other staff member will be the one to actually appear on the day of the wedding. Make sure it states in your contract exactly who will be the person who does the work.

* How much do you want to spend? While you may have your heart set on white roses, your budget might not agree. If you do want a certain item, be sure to state the maximum price you're willing to spend, or allow room for reasonable substitutions.

* Are you receiving exactly what you thought? It's up to you to educate yourself on the products you want. Find businesses that back up their work with a guarantee, and be aware of the ways you can be cheated. "Some less reputable jewelers will sell hollow or gold-plated rings, which means you're paying for metal that isn't there," says Blackwell. "We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee and a certificate of authenticity."

* What's the back-up plan? Many wedding businesses are one-person operations. What will happen if your photographer has a family emergency or the baker's truck breaks down on the day of your wedding? Have your vendors explain their contingency plan to take care of any unforeseen mishaps.

With a little advance preparation and the right information, you can enjoy your engagement confident that the right people are working for you to make your big day an event to remember.
