Expert Advice: Where to Splurge

Weddings can come with a big price tag! Budget is often the main source of contention between families when planning. Whether your budget is $1,000 or $1,000,000, here are three items we consider well worth your money.


1) PHOTOGRAPHER

At the end of your wedding day, photos are the only tangible thing that you will have to look through and relive the memories. Photography is not a place to try to cut costs and use a family friend, new photographer, or even someone who does not shoot the style of pictures you really like. Make other concessions in your planning so that you can hire a photographer you love, trust, and want to be beside you on your wedding day.

2) DECOR

Good decor can make your reception venue a showstopper! A ballroom with dated wallpaper can be transformed with lighting and drapery. Outdated banquet table and chairs can be replaced with rentals, lounge furniture and beautiful table linens. These details will enhance your guests experience.

3) BAND

When it comes to your guests experience, one of the most important factors is entertainment. We recommend investing in this area whether your preference is a full show band, strings group or DJ. The better the music, the longer your guests will stay at your reception.
