- Why should I be a vendor?
This is a great opportunity for FREE marketing and leads. We only match you with brides that fit your services, which removes the lengthy process of phone calls and emailing back and forth just for the client to determine if you might be the right fit.
On top of all of that, you receive Praulia certification that validates your business to not only our wedding community and clients, but anyone that visits your website will be able to see your Praulia Certification Badge that you receive upon approval.
- How does it work?
Simply fill out an application, get approved and start receiving leads! Once you are approved, we will create a profile for you based on the information you provided in your application for our internal use. From there, we will send you email alerts about clients that match your services, simply click yes or no to let us know if you are interested in the client and available.
- How do I become a certified vendor?
Step 1. Reviews. Provide a list of your social media outlets and websites with your business listings and reviews.
Step 2. Business Verification. Attach a copy of all applicable licenses and certifications per city, state and federal requirements.
Step 3. Experience. Vendors of all levels may be accepted. You will receive a different qualification based on the level of your experience.
Step 4. Interview. We will set up a short interview to finalize your Praulia certification.
- What kinds of vendors do you accept?
We currently match brides to vendors serving Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Collin, Rockwall, Ellis and Kaufman counties in the following categories: reception and ceremony venues, photography, videography, caterers, desserts, florists, transportation, music: djs, bands and musicians, beauty: hair and makeup, officiants and month-of wedding planners. If you are not on this list, but interested in other opportunities, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- What is my commitment?
We simply ask three things of you. (1) Fill out and submit your application, (2) respond to lead inquiry emails with an affirmative or negative confirmation of your availability and interest in the client and (3) complete bi-annual updates to your profile when requested to maintain your certification. Leave the rest up to us!
- Do I have to apply every year?
Vendors will be reviewed on an annual basis to reassess whether they continue to meet all certification requirements. Certification will be renewed as long as all requirements are met and vendors are updating their profiles with changes bi-annually.
- What costs are associated with certification?
That’s the great part! It’s FREE. Our goal is to build relationships with local vendors that meet our requirements to provide better and broader options for brides. We understand local vendors have several business costs already and we don’t want to add to those costs. We want to make great local vendors like you more accessible to brides.
- Am I guaranteed leads?
We do not guarantee leads to vendors. We are providing matches to brides that best fit their needs, so they decide who to contact and hire. We encourage you to respond promptly to our email alerts as that will increase your chances of making it on to the vendor match list provided to a bride. After that, it’s up to you to communicate to them why you are a good fit for their wedding team.
- Do I get access to information/data?
We do not share our clients’ information with vendors. However, you will receive vendor-exclusive access to Praulia annual reports and seminars with valuable information regarding current wedding trends, spending and more.
