All brides deserve a beautiful wedding, no matter what the budget. Whether you have $1,000 or $100,000 to spend, getting help from a wedding planner will help you maximize your event funds.
Most brides will book venues based on photos and style shoots not realizing that the stripped down version isn’t quite what they had hoped. Many venue locations have unplanned add-ins that can quickly add up. Planner's Tip: before you start setting dates, consider options on venue price discounts for unconventional days, such as Friday evenings. If a Saturday is a must, look for off season discounts and set the date when venues may offer deep discounts. If your venue will be hosting an open house or have a booth at a bridal show, make it a point to visit them there to take advantage of show specials.
Most brides don’t think they can afford a wedding professional, but in the long run, wedding planners know the ins and outs of weddings and associated costs that can quickly become overwhelming. It is not a luxury, but a great asset in helping couples stay on track and within their set budget. A wedding planner can really pay off in the long run.
