The 3 Most Important Wedding Day Investmentsby Liz Gatherer
When you are planning a wedding, it is likely that you will be working to a strict budget. With so many elements you need to pay for, deciding what to prioritise can be quite a challenge. You can’t spend thousands on every detail, so what are the most important investments your wedding requires? You don’t want planning your wedding to be a source of stress, but at the same time, it can be pretty challenging to figure out how to divvy up your money for the wedding!
Luckily, in this blog we will cover the three most important investments you can make for your wedding. And no, one of them is not the dress!
Are you ready to find out how to prioritise your wedding budget? Let’s get started!
1. The venue
The number one priority we have chosen here is the venue. The venue is one of the most expensive parts of your wedding, no doubt - but honestly, this is for good reason. The venue provides the setting for your wedding and wedding reception; it will be a huge part of the day, even if you don’t notice its effects. Prioritising finding the perfect venue doesn’t mean you should be sparse about your other wedding expenses, but it does mean that you should focus on the venue as the foundational element of your wedding.
Here are some aspects that will be affected by the venue you choose!
- The comfort of you and your guests.
- The setting of your wedding photographs - more on this in step 3!
- The general ambiance and “vibe” of the wedding.
- The order of the day, based on regulations set by the venue.
So you see, your wedding venue is a crucial aspect that shouldn’t be scrimped on!
Wedition hot tip: If your venue has an interesting past, you can share the history of it with your wedding guests in a personalised wedding magazine. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
2. The food and drink
Have you ever been to a wedding that served less-than-tasty food, or made you pay for all your beverages? It sucked, right? Let’s be honest, nobody likes a stingy wedding when it comes to food and drink. Your guests have made a big effort for the wedding - bought outfits, travelled to the venue, organised childcare, you know the drill! - so it’s time to give that back by treating them to delicious food and an open bar. Investing in the food and drink at your wedding is something you’ll never regret. We promise.
3. The photographer
Many people leave the wedding photographer as some sort of afterthought. However, your wedding is only one day. There’s only so much you can take in, only so much you can remember. On the other hand, you don’t want to spend the entire day posing for photos, right?
That’s where skilled wedding photography comes in. A high quality wedding photographer will take subtle candid shots that will reflect the happiness of the day, and also orchestrate beautiful posed shots for your albums. You’ll be able to look back at the day with total love in your hearts - the photographs will represent the wonders that your wedding brought to your life!
Invest in these three crucial elements, and you won’t go amiss!
