Friday 02 November 2018 at 10:38 am.
When it comes to planning your wedding, you must be aware of the pros and cons of each venue and vendor in order to avoid unexpected expenses. Your timing will also make an impact on making negotiation deals. If you want to strictly follow your budget and not go beyond what is planned, here are some tips for you that you must consider when making choices that can greatly affect your wedding budget: More information on wedding venues Faversham on www.juddsfollyhotel.co.uk.

 

Outdoor weddings

Having your wedding outdoors is a rising trend in Faversham wedding venues. You have to check the area if you need permits to do an outdoor event and see if there are any city regulations that you need to follow. Also, you need to come up with a plan B in case of rain or bad weather. Does the venue have an indoor space to transfer to or do you need to rent tents?

Wedding date

In the wedding industry, prices vary depending on your wedding date. Check which are the off-peak seasons in your area. Even the day of the week and the time of your wedding affects prices. Reception areas charge higher for Saturday night weddings in most areas. Having a brunch or luncheon weddings or having it on a weekday instead of the weekend will be cheaper.

Flowers and decors

Be careful about the flowers that you want to pick. Choose flowers that are in season since off-season flowers means they have to be imported from somewhere else and will raise the price of your flowers. If you want your decors to be filled with flowers, you can choose one type of in-season flower and order a mass quantity of it – this will not only be friendlier to your budget but will also create quite an impact to your decors.

Catering

Aside from knowing how much each plate will cost you, ask about rentals and services as some couples have been surprised to find that they are billed separately. Make sure that you read the fine print in the contract and clarify if the package includes payment for the services of the waiters or the bartender. If you plan on having an open bar, make sure that you are not paying per drink as this can be very expensive if you have guests who drink heavily.

Always remember to be kind and polite while negotiating. Some vendors are willing to give discounts for couples who are very easy to work with.
