When it comes to thanking your wedding vendors, there are a variety of things you can do to show your gratitude.

Send them a written note

With everything you need to do in the days after your wedding, you may think that a quick email thanking your vendors for their hard work is more than enough. While that’s a nice gesture, if your vendor went above-and-beyond to make your day extra special, you should consider taking the time to write a note the old-fashioned way!

Give them a good tip

This is probably the most common way to show your appreciation, but with all the time and effort your vendors put into making the details of your big day come together perfectly, some additional cash is always appreciated.

Leave them a good review

After all of the emails, calls, brainstorming sessions, and times that they saved the day with a genius idea, you should spend some time writing out thoughtful testimonials for each of your vendors. The world deserves to know just how awesome your photographer or florist is!

Refer them to your friends

With all the vendors out there, the best way for someone to build their business is by word-of-mouth recommendations. Is your BFF or co-worker getting married shortly after your wedding? As they’re starting to look around at various vendors, suggest that they reach out to your makeup artist or band.

Send them photos of their work

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so make sure to send your vendors a snapshot of their work on display at your wedding! Talk to your photographers before your wedding day and let them know that you’d like a few stylized shots of everything from your invitation suite to your cake.
