Any bridal couple who experienced planning their own wedding will most likely say, “It’s not all that easy.” It is a big job – from engagement photos to selection of the wedding videographer, setting the budget, and everything in between. There are numerous wedding vendors you will encounter and many decisions to be made that can save you money during the planning phase.
Wedding Venues – Make a list of venue (locations) sites that interest you, and see if you can book during the off season (April to October), to save money. Wedding venues tend to be the most expensive during traditional wedding season (September to May). If you have your heart set on a December wedding, it is best to book really far in advance to try to secure a better rate.
Wedding Photographer and Wedding Video – Most brides and grooms when asked may think they just need a wedding photographer but many agree that selecting the best wedding videographer to capture the day in action was one of the most important decisions they made. Get referrals from your friends, interview the wedding videography company, and then compare prices. Select the one that suits your style and budget and make this selection the second thing on your list after you set the wedding date, and find the venue. Reason is simple: You want to make sure they are available to shoot your footage that day.
Wedding Attire – Wedding Gowns, Tuxedos, Suits – Both the bride and groom may be able to save a considerable amount by researching and possibly purchasing a tuxedo or nice suit (for the groom) or wedding gown (for the bride) from the internet, resulting in potentially saving you thousands or hundreds of dollars. The trick here is to know your measurements exactly, look over the photos really well, ask for additional measurements from the seller or online vendor and purchase way in advance to alterations can be done if needed.
An extract from Wedding Album :-
You will certainly not get this chance again.
This is your wedding event. Ideally you will only be having one. Isn’t it worth the investment? The #1 regret I learn through bride-to-bes regarding their big day is that they are not pleased with their photos. Do not be one of them. Besides, when else will all your friends and family be gathered in one area? Most likely not until your funeral. My very own sister had a very average digital photographer at her wedding event. Within a year, both my granny as well as my mother died. Those are the last family members images we will ever have, as well as they are not good. If only she had worked with an excellent digital photographer.
