Q. We're thinking of booking our entertainment, but we're a bit worried about booking someone online that we've never met. Do you have any suggestions?

A. Rebecca Barnes says: With so much done online these days, it can be challenging to know exactly what type of person you're going to get. Here are my top tips to make the process more manageable.

- Make sure to ask lots of questions, even if they seem silly to you. As a supplier, I want my couples to ask tons to make sure they're completely happy and feel confident about my services. If the person/company you're talking to doesn't want to give much information, they may not be what you want.

- You'll need to see the company in action to know if they're going to be a good fit for your big day, so make sure to watch lots of videos of them in action. If an entertainment act doesn't have videos online, ask for some.

- Ask to chat face-to-face with the team; I offer all potential couples a chat and free demo before they book my company so they're 100 per cent confident that they'll get what they want. This can also be done via a video call!
