Do you follow your vendors? I do! I recently joined Twitter and since Twitter pulls your email address to help you find people you know; it naturally pulled my vendors who tweet. Instantly, I was following along with our DJ, Photog and Officiant. I already followed some of their blogs (and Laura and I go to TaeBo together), but this new social media makes me feel more connected than ever.
I enjoy hearing about the other weddings they’re doing, seeing new blog posts and getting to know more about them on other levels. I also think it helps them get to know me and my style in different and more in-depth ways. For example, when I accidentally made myself look like a superhero my DJ joked that he could play superhero music for my entrance and my photographer gave me the contact info for his hair stylist friend!
In fact, I sorta wished all my vendors tweeted and blogged so I could follow along. Except the cake baker…because I don’t know if I could handle tweets about buttercream while dieting.
