A wedding is not a task to deal with all alone; it is a giant team venture of creative professionals to transform a dream into reality using multiple vendors.

Finding a reputable and trustworthy wedding vendor is the secret to achieve your wedding vision.
Whom do you hire first?
This is the biggest issue to solve as this big decision will affect all the small but equally important decisions. To ease your stress in the end, follow this guide about multiple wedding rental vendors:
There are two kinds of wedding vendors you find. One who serves only one bride at a time and the one who deals with multiple brides.

Decide the big stuff along with your partner and be clear about: what is the budget? What looks and feels you want for your big day? What are your priorities? Make a list of all these things and then start moving to the next step in hiring multiple vendors.
Hire a wedding planner is key to eliminating overwhelm but if you must, suggestions from family and friends about who they recommend to you. Blogs and online websites are ideal to search for something you actually want and visit the locals also to decide your wedding venue.
Talk to the vendors you shortlisted based on budget, personality and other factors and conduct an interview online or anywhere you will both be comfortable. Of course, this is your wedding, so you are the manager and to avoid any burnout it is advised to meet with no more than three of a single type of vendors.
Take your time to evaluate the vendors and their feasibility of working with you. Compare them and check how they fulfill the job description.
Before pulling the trigger, talk about the hard part: money. Never accept the deal as it is, but always negotiate. Discuss all the major and minor details, get the answer to all the things to include in a single cost, compliment their work, and finally decide with your partner about the right option.
Hiring a vendor means deciding to be in a months-long relationship with a person. It is important to focus on the chemistry between you two once you decide that both of you are simpatico than move forward to discuss further details.
