To save or to splurge. This is quite possibly one of the biggest questions a couple asks themselves when it comes to throwing their wedding. And until you are actually shoulder deep in the planning process, it is hard to grasp just how expensive saying ‘I do’ really is. So, what details are worth the big bucks? Check out the following splurge-worthy items that you don’t have to feel guilty about!
Oh that delicious food!
Be sure to open your wallet as far as you can when it comes to catering; it will be worth every penny! Because if there is one thing your wedding guests will remember about your big day … it will be the food.
A Photo is Worth Everything
An amazing photographer (and crew) is one thing you don’t need to feel guilty about spending extra money on. Your wedding photos will be the only concrete memory from your big day. You’ll frame them, post them on Facebook, and gaze at them forever. A picture is worth a thousand words, but a stunning wedding photo is worth a million words, thoughts, and memories.
Dance, Dance, Dance
If you are wondering if music is worth the extra money, your answer is yes! A great band or DJ can bring your reception to life! So throw any extra cash toward unforgettable, dance-worthy music.
Cut the Cake and Make Sure it’s Scrumptious
While great food is a necessity, a delicious cake (or other dessert) is definitely worth spending some extra dough on. Many guests look most forward to having a piece of cake or other sweet treat, so make sure whatever you choose to serve is top-notch.
A Drink or Two
Not everyone serves alcohol at their wedding reception and that’s okay. But if you want a true celebration where guests can let loose, providing a bar is a great way to make that happen. Splurge on one to two alcoholic beverages (typically wine and beer) and make sure there is enough for each guest to have between one and two drinks. You don’t want a drunken celebration, but a couple of drinks will definitely liven your party!
