Vendor - Inquiry
You’ve found a few folx you’re interested in working with but want more information — here’s the perfect template to spell out a few of the details and see if they’re a good fit!
Vendor - Hire
Yay! You’ve found your humans! Make it official with this email and be sure to send your signed contract and deposit in promptly so you can secure your date in their calendar and get rolling with your plans!
Vendor - Fire
It happens, sometimes you start with a particular vendor and then they don’t end up being the greatest fit. That’s okay! And you’re more than allowed to end a vendor relationship before wedding week. Read through your contract terms carefully and then send this email their way letting them know how you’d like to proceed.
Vendor - Going With Someone Else
From the handful of vendors in each category, you’ve narrowed it down to your faves and you need to let the rest know you’ve gone with someone else. If you’re a people pleaser (raises hand) this can be uncomfortable but it’s common courtesy to let folx know you’ve gone in a different direction so they can officially release your date from their calendar and move forward with no question of whether you’ll reach back out 6 weeks from now wondering if they’re still available.
Vendor - Dream Business Inquiry
We all have ‘em, those pie-in-the-sky dream vendors you would be over the moon to work with. Maybe they don’t live near you and say they don’t travel. Maybe they’re just out of your price range. Whatever the case, I say, go for it! The worst that can happen is they say no. The best that can happen is they say yes and agree to your budget/needs! So why not ask?!
Vendor - Final Planning Details
You’re a couple months out from your wedding and needing to gather all the lingering information into one place like remaining balance due, due dates, day-of needs, full contact information, etc. Send this out to your vendor team and then compile your information into the Vendors tab of your LPC Online Planner.

Doers of good. Makers of even better. East Fork is an Asheville, NC based pottery that makes it super easy to gift ‘cause all their dishes, vases and wares are gorgeous.
