We Maine wedding professionals field a lot of inquiry emails, especially during “inquiry season” which is Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day. You want your inquiry email to stand out, to have some personality and to catch the attention of the wedding vendor that you’re hoping to work with, right? To help your email stand out from the crowd think about using some of the following suggestions.
Better Inquiry Emails
Tell us a bit about your wedding: date, venue, theme, time of day, number of guests, size of wedding party…you get the idea.
Tell us what made you choose to contact us. For example, “I came across your site and felt an immediate connection to you!” or “The photos of your food make my mouth water. I want to eat every meal you’ve made.”
Tell us where you are and why you’re getting married in Maine.
And definitely tell us the name of your betrothed.
I’m not saying that you’ll necessarily get a better response from your vendors, but it’s so nice to receive an inquiry email that at least shows you’ve checked out our website. I love getting emails like this one:
“Hello Maria! You are amazing! I love everything about your site! So much information, good information that we can totally use! We have so many likes and preferences in common that I just have to meet you! I want you in my life for at least the next 18 months, if not much longer! Is that creepy?
You may get this a lot, but we already know that you are the officiant for us! We haven’t looked into or spoken to any others, but we don’t need to. You are it! When can we meet?
As you can probably sense, I’m a bit dramatic and very enthusiastic! I love planning and have already gotten a lot done for our special day! I hope you are willing and able to join us in our adventure to the best wedding in xxxx.”
This is a real email from a real bride. Trust me, this inquiry email definitely stood out to me. Here are the photos I took at Chris and Melissa’s wedding.
I’m looking forward to getting your inquiry email to see if I’m the right Maine wedding officiant for you!
