Your Wedding: Savings and Splurges

Wedding As we discussed last week, planning a wedding can be confusing and frustrating. While there are some areas that a bride and groom can pinch their pennies, there are other areas where a bride and groom should feel free to splurge.

Here are some areas when planning your wedding that you shouldn’t be afraid to splurge on:

  • Wedding Dress- A bride is looking for the perfect wedding dress for her special day. While we don’t suggest spending your down payment for a home on your wedding dress, this is an aspect of your wedding that you shouldn’t cut corners. If you are able to afford the extra beading and lace for the dress of your dreams, go for it.
  • Wedding Shoes- Comfortable shoes are a must for your wedding day. The only time a bride might get to sit down during the day is during dinner. Aside from that, the bride will be standing at her ceremony, for pictures, and not to mention dancing. Look for shoes that are comfortable, match your dress, and can be worn again to make the cost worth the purchase.
  • Alterations- While you may want to skip on alterations, you want to feel and look comfortable on your wedding day. If your dress needs alterations, avoiding them could make the dress appear too small or too big for you, leaving you uncomfortable for the entire day.
  • Entrees- Food is a main component of your wedding reception. Not only do you want to provide your guests with a delicious meal, you want to enjoy the food as well. Choose entrée items that will make you happy and satisfied on your special day.
