Wedding costs can rise to unanticipated heights if you are not cautious. Hidden costs and expenses are the main reason for these surprising or shocking extra expenses. Get a clear picture of the catering expenses, rent for furniture, rents for cutlery and crockery, charges for food and drink, stage decoration charges, DJ charges if there is one and charges for the staff service. It is when miscellaneous charges are added to regular bills, the expenses turn atrocious. Understand the expenses of all services and calculate the chances of getting an increase in bill.
The cost may rise but if you bargain you will manage the event in your wedding budget. You will only be left to work out the invitations and decide upon the banquet menu, table accessories and decoration. A good wedding hall will have all the accessories and will have a network of vendors to provide services.
Wardrobe mishaps: clothing is one common mishap magnet. Dresses and suits must be selected carefully. Dress rehearsals would be better. Otherwise, it may end up that the bride trips over her stilettos or faints because she suffocated by wearing a sexy figure-hugging dress too tiny for her! Not only that, the bridesmaids must also be careful about their dresses and accessories. Who would want the wedding morning to be chaotic because the girls were hunting for their dresses? The same goes for the men as well.
Changing wedding rings is the climax of the whole wedding ceremony. When the bride and the groom preparing for changing wedding rings mutually, owning a nice ring bracket can increase formal feeling to your wedding. You can make it by yourself or purchase one from professional shops. The design of it should be brief and charming.
The first step is the engagement which may be a low key affair between friends and relatives. Until unless you are very rich the engagement ceremony will be a simple event. This way you can reserve your resources for the marriage ceremony. Once the ring slips over the fingers the next step is obviously the wedding. Day and night one thinks of this day and most bothersome is making arrangements if you do not have a flair for event planning.
Food is likely to be one of your biggest costs as it will be on a per head basis. The more people you invite, the more it is going to cost. Food and drink, not counting alcoholic beverages for 100 guests at a low fifty dollars per guest will set you back. Then the bar, if you decide to have one will usually cost anywhere from one to three thousand for 100 people is you figure the event to last four hours. More as the headcount goes up or the reception runs over.
Everyone wants to have memories for their wedding day, but some of us aren't willing to drop thousands of dollars for a few photos and a short video. If you just don't feel it's worth the money, seek out friends and family who have digital cameras and great picture skills. We hired a professional photographer because I really love photos, but instead of a videographer we are having some family members tape the wedding. I've also been to weddings where a family member took all the pictures. A good supplement to this is giving each table a throw-away camera and asking them to take photos. This idea isn't unique anymore, but it sure is fun for the guests at your wedding and you'll usually end up with some very unique photos.
