Ask Liz: Using Your Venue's Preferred Vendors


Dear Liz, 
My fiancé and I have finally (!) picked our wedding venue and now we are to the point where we are selecting our photographer, caterer, and florist. Our venue has a list of their preferred companies, but I don't know if I want to use them. For instance I have my heart set on a florist that my best friend used in her wedding, but they're not on the list. Am I required to stick with the suggested companies or can I choose my own? Is there a benefit to using the companies that are being recommended to us? I am afraid that the only reason they are on there is that someone is getting a kickback.
Signed, 
Off the Grid


See you at the end of the aisle,
