Where to Cut the Budget

Where to cut the budget?

Couples ask us all the time how to cut their budget, yet have a great party.  We tell them to make two lists similar to what you do when preparing your guests list:  make a list of your ‘must-haves’ and ‘like-to-haves’.

Your must-haves are anything that will directly impact the wedding experience such as food/beverage, if you don’t provide these you will have a mob on your hands!

The ‘like-to-haves’ are going to be a band vs. DJ, lush and expensive floral, lighting.  It is easier to downgrade floral and the form of entertainment, but it’s not so easy to justify why the food is awful.
