Weddings are costly but that doesn’t mean every single supplier and element of your wedding, has to cost a fortune as a result. There are some areas of your wedding planning in which you can hold back on the budget and others where you should be splurging out for the occasion.
With that being said, here are five splurges worth making on your wedding day that will make all the difference to your experience of such a special occasion.
It’s important to get the caterers right because they’re the ones supplying your guests with the food and making sure you’re well-fed. Not only that but the caterers are also going to provide an experience in itself that takes up a big portion of your day.
With that being said, you want the caterers to be the real deal and offer a great variety of food that is high-quality. You want your guests leaving your wedding day lunch or dinner, with big smiles on their faces and empty plates all around.
A caterer like Sand Castle is a good place to start but make sure you’re doing your research to find the right ones to pick from.
A photographer is capturing your special day and so it’s important to make sure you’ve chosen a photographer that offers everything you want when it comes to style and approach.
Every photographer is different and just because you think they’re a good match in cost, doesn’t mean they’re going to be the best for you. However, speaking of cost, in order to get a fantastic photographer, it’s important to be willing and able to spend the money to have them. Do not be surprised if the photographer alone costs thousands.
Entertainment is an important one because they’re going to be responsible for starting the party off. They will likely need to contend with slightly intoxicated and fully-fed guests. Therefore, they need to be one of the best out there for providing entertainment that will get people up on their feet.
You may also wish to have entertainment like a magician or show dancers. Whatever your type of entertainment is, make sure you’re spending the money on it to make it happen.
The dress is the big one. After all, when are you ever going to get the opportunity to wear a white dress again? A wedding dress is something that should have no expense spared so if you’re able to, try to provide as much budget as possible for finding the dress of your dreams.
Don’t rush the dress-finding process too, it’s important to take your time and listen to your mind and body in the dress.
A videographer is important to consider especially as they capture moving footage that you can treasure forever. They’re like a photographer in that the memories they capture are truly priceless in value.
