Don’t overspend on your big day!

If your Wedding isn’t planned carefully, it could leave you set to start married life stressed and swamped in credit card debt…

The Australian Government published stats a few years ago suggesting that only about 45% of couples manage to stick within their Wedding budgets, with 35% blowing it and 20% having no budget at all.(Source)

Other research shows couples can spend two to three times what they planned! Ouch.

Your wedding reception.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that, on average, your venue will comprise of about 45% of our overall budget?!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When deciding such an important part of your wedding (and budget!) we have a few suggestions for you to ask your potential venues.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Useful Tips to consider when booking you wedding reception venue⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING! If you really love a wedding site or venue, make sure you have everything itemised and in writing. Your proposed wedding date will not be secured until you have signed a written contract and paid a deposit, even if you have been told not to worry about it. Make sure that you ask exactly what it takes to secure your booking and follow each instruction.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Don’t assume that because the manager told you that you will have centrepieces and other décor, that you will actually get them. Make sure that your contract with the venue is detailed and before signing, have a thorough read through. Read the fine print and make sure it includes all the details that you agreed on. As new details are added or changed, make sure a new written contract is printed out and signed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Document all conversations and emails. Keep all correspondence to avoid confusion and disappointment.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Take photos of your proposed wedding site. After looking at several sites, it can be easy to confuse them.Take a video or photo of the venue and label each site. This will help you remember what you liked or didn’t like about a particular site.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • LOCATION: Pay attention to the venue as a whole. Will it be big enough? Are the facilities suitable? What will the gardens or grounds look like during the season I get married? Is the venue easy to find or quite far? You want to make sure that your vision can be realised at this location.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • If possible, try and make an appointment to visit whilst they are setting up for a wedding so you can see.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image reposted from @rosalineflowers Photography by @jessica_mason_photo ...
