Every bride likes to work with a budget. We all work to make the most beautiful wedding for a reasonable price. Sometimes there are costs that force us to go with less than what we want. There are many hidden costs many brides to plan into a budget: shipping costs, photo/video overtime, and rental transportation.
Decorating a wedding on your own time and dime requires most to shop online. Buying in bulk is definitely the only way to go, but getting the items shipped, PRICEY!
Sometimes the party just gets too exciting and fun, so you want the photographer to stay to capture those candid moments. It is a valid request but we often times forget that overtime is most expensive. Instead of paying for a time slot, you are paying for the extra hours that were unplanned, photographers expect compensation, PRICEY!
Renting tables, linens, chairs, or other decor can be cost effective when you need to make a place look extraordinary. And no one wants to buy all these items, who needs to own twenty low-top 5 foot round tables? What you need to look out for is how all of these decorative extras are getting to your venue. Transportation fees, PRICEY!
Make sure when working on your budget that you factor in these small but pricey details. You want to make sure you can afford what you are looking at, total cost!
