If you are here, it probably means that either you are getting married or helping someone at their wedding! Isn’t it exciting and nerve-wracking?
A wedding is a special affair that requires a certain amount of money. Most people have a budget allocated for the wedding to spend on the check.
But the trick is to know where to splurge and where to save. But how does one determine that you wonder?
While it is natural to cut back on certain costs- your wedding is a one-time affair, and you have to consider living it to its fullest and have an experience of a lifetime, so here are certain areas that you can look into for a splurge.
1. The Venue
Have you imagined what your big day will look like in your mind’s eye? That’s fantastic—now it’s time to pick a location!
This is by far the most difficult aspect of your wedding.
If you want to splurge, consider upgrading from a plain hall to a larger mansion or even to a location near the ocean or a resort.
It’s also advantageous if the location offers catering or a bar, which alleviates a significant portion of the wedding preparation process. Also, make sure you have the place you’ve always wanted.
2. Wedding Coordinator
You may have heard that planning and budgeting for a wedding is one of the most stressful events, and you should be mindful of this because an ill-managed wedding can cost a lot of dollars and leave unsatisfied guests!
Hiring a wedding planner is like hiring a personal assistant who will handle everything from dealing with vendors to preparing the logistics and even handling a significant portion of your budget.
But why can’t you do it all yourself?
Because they help bridge the gap between you and your guests. When a visitor arrives, they expect to be seated and offered some welcome drinks, and it is the wedding planner’s responsibility to recognize this. So you can relax and enjoy your wedding make-up session on your gown while everything behind the scenes is running smoothly. This allows you to unwind and concentrate on your wedding.
Even if the setting and arrangements are excellent, a wedding cannot succeed without tasty food. So splurge on the catering department now!
You will see that your visitors will lavish you with compliments for the high-quality food and beverages you serve.
Lighting is an example of how a tiny detail has a tremendous influence. This sets the tone for your wedding, and it’s generally the first thing guests notice when they enter.
Make the space warm and inviting with candles and chandeliers. To give your wedding that whimsical feel, you might highlight key places, such as the tables and flowers. You can also hire professional lighting services for the event.
Investing in high-quality entertainment for your big day is a fantastic idea. To make it even more memorable, make it a surprise for your guests. You can hire a local DJ or an 80s band to make your wedding a once-in-a-lifetime event.
You can set up a photo booth so that guests can take celebratory photos. A dessert bar or a gaming booth is also a terrific idea. Teenagers will no longer grumble about having to attend a wedding because it’s dull. After all, they’ll be too busy playing games and enjoying the dessert section.
6. Hair and make up
On your wedding day, you should feel at your most beautiful, and you should leave your hair and make-up to the pros. You may have purchased your favorite shoes, dream gown, and bespoke veil, but without a well-balanced make-up application, it might all appear like a muddy mess.
Everything else falls into place when you have properly done your hair and make-up and feel confident. While professional make-up may be overkill on any other day, it is well worth the investment on your wedding day.
We hope you learned something from this blog, and we hope you can achieve the best results you are hoping for in your wedding. Also- congratulations!
