So you set your budget and determined exactly how much you can spend on your dress, venue, catering, etc. Great! Until you find out there is $100 fee here and $300 fee there that you didn't know about! Now you are well over your budget? Let us help you look for those hidden fees! Bride in a Box is great with budgets! But until then, here are some things to keep an eye out for.
-Postage: Did you know that what type of invitation, envelope and RSVP will determine how much you are going to spend on postage? Some invitations could cost you $1 or more EACH!
-Guest Bags: Guest bags given to out of town guests is a sweet gesture to thank them for making the trip for your big day. But some hotels charge you to deliver the bags to the hotel rooms. That can cost you up to $5 per bag. Yikes!
-Outdoor weddings: You NEED a backup plan! Trust me! Heard the saying "hope for the best, prepare for the worst"? This is true when it comes to your ceremony getting rained out! Plan to rent a tent, use the chapel or provide umbrellas for your guests.
-Vendor meals: Did you know that you need to feed your vendors? The band of 7, your 2 photographers, the event planner, etc. They all need to eat a meal that night.
There are so many more fees that you may not know about! Make sure that you let your planner know what your budget is and they will help you stick to it!
