If you’re a news junky no doubt you have heard about ChatGPT. AKA “Open AI.”
Have you tried it yet?
It’s pretty AAAAA-MAAAAY-ZIIIING.
I’m playing with it and asked it:
What are five things I should ask a wedding vendor before hiring them for my wedding?
Here was the response (exactly, cut/pasted here). It took about 15 seconds to kick it out.
(1) When hiring a wedding vendor, it’s important to ask the right questions to ensure that they are the right fit for your wedding. Here are five things you should ask before hiring a wedding vendor:
(2) What is included in your services and what are your pricing and package options? Make sure you understand what services are included and if there are any additional costs.
(3) Can you provide references or a portfolio of past work? Ask for references or a portfolio of their past work to get an idea of their experience and the quality of their work.
(4) Are you available on my wedding date? Make sure the vendor is available on your wedding date and that they can accommodate your schedule and requirements.
(5) How do you handle emergencies or unforeseen issues? Ask about the vendor’s contingency plan for dealing with emergencies or unforeseen issues that may arise during your wedding.
(6) How do you communicate and work with other vendors? It’s important to know how the vendor will communicate and coordinate with other vendors to ensure a seamless and smooth wedding day.
(7) Are you licensed and insured? It’s important to know that the vendor is licensed and insured to protect yourself in case of any accident or other issues.
(8) Can you accommodate any specific requests or dietary restrictions? It’s important to know if the vendor can accommodate any specific requests or dietary restrictions you or your guests may have.
(9) How do you handle payments and deposits? Ask about the vendor’s payment and deposit policies to make sure you understand the terms and conditions before hiring.
