1. ASK YOURSELF WHAT KIND OF PARTY YOU WANT! We know it’s obvious but you’d be surprised at how many couples don’t actually sit down and look at ideas. Do you want something original and never seen before or are you both envisaging classic and subtle touches? Do you want entertainment throughout the day? Or are you going all out for the evening do? Do you want to include a theme, era or colour?

2. SEARCH THE INTERNET Couples usually know what they want, or at least have an idea to start their search with. Maybe you’ve been to someone else’s wedding and got some ideas. But if you don’t have a trusted recommendation, then it’s worth having a Google.  Why not try asking questions in local wedding Facebook groups – you usually get great recommendations that way and also lots of visuals on companies’ social media pages.

3. CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE Do they look professional? Do they tell you about their staff? Are they qualified and experienced? Are they fully insured? Do they have available risk assessments and checks? Is it clear what packages they offer, what you will get and how much it costs? Do they have testimonials on their site?

4. CHECK THEM OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA Have a look at their Facebook page, their Twitter account and Instagram – are they active on there? Do you like their vibe and personality? Are their customers talking about them? Have they received good feedback? Are they busy? And most importantly, do they look professional with high standards?

5. CHECK OUT THEIR TERMS AND CONDITIONS What happens if your booked entertainers are ill or stuck in traffic? Read the small print and make sure you’re happy with it and that the company has backup systems in place. Most reputable production companies will have an array of talent ready and be able to step in if such problems were to occur.

6. GIVE FEEDBACK Most companies will ask for feedback after the event. Good companies value honest feedback so it’s great to let them know what you enjoyed about their input and performance and also whether you have any tips on what could be improved.
