WHY ARE WEDDINGS SO EXPENSIVE?
Most people go into high stress mode when thinking about planning a wedding.
It can be totally overwhelming to consider all the things that are involved: i.e., renting a venue, finding a caterer, choosing a band or a DJ, coordinating with a church or selecting someone to officiate the service, figuring out a date that will work for out-of-town guests, selecting accommodations, securing transportation, designing invitations, coordinating with bridesmaids, groomsmen, and of course, relatives.
Contracting with a wedding planner on the front end of things is another way to save time and money. A knowledgeable planner may be able to assist with finding vendors that will fit into any budget, such as photographers, videographers, even musical entertainment, and décor.
Usually the biggest expense with weddings is the venue rental. Fancy hotels can be extremely expensive, as they also require that you utilize their in-house catering.
