Planning a Wedding is one of Life’s Biggest Expenditures…
We all know the research that goes into buying a house, a new car, a motorcycle, a horse, a boat or heck, even a diamond ring…
And yet, what about the learning curve and research that should go along with planning, making and paying for a wedding;
one of the biggest expenditures you’ll make as a couple?
Any one can hire a DJ or a photographer.
That’s doable…the puzzle, the process, where the difficulty comes in,
is with regard to budgeting and putting all those pieces together; vendors and otherwise.
Here’s a test: Let’s take the universe of venues and options and whittle that down….(in Phoenix that 600+ options)…
That process in and of itself, could be enough to turn anyone off (of) wedding planning, but that’s just the start of hiring and just some of the research you need to do; so let’s say, now that you’ve done that, answer these questions:
How many Guests did you guarantee for?
Did you get vegetarian/gluten-free and/or diabetic meals and pricing?
Did you negotiate kids’ meal pricing?
Did you negotiate the pricing for your vendors meals?
Does your p/person cost include gratuity?
Does your p/person cost include appetizers?
OK….right…STOP. Because. WHAT?
See, these are just a few of the questions you should be asking of your venue/catering manager and that you need to understand.
We suggest learning all you can about HOW the process works and which steps should come and in which order. Do the same research you’d do if you were buying a car…and we can help:
