There are so many options to choose from when planning a wedding, you might be getting overwhelmed. One of the first decisions you should make is if you want a wedding package or not. They can be a really good idea sometimes, but may not be right for everyone. You will have to think about your specific situation and decide for yourself, but here are some tips to help you make an informed decision.
People with short engagements might benefit from a wedding package. A wedding package might also help you out if you are already super busy in other areas of your life. Wedding packages are also great for people who have a hard time making decisions. If you fit into any of those categories, then you might want to think about a wedding package. They eliminate a lot of the time and stress that go into planning a wedding. The wedding company takes care of most of it after you make a few decisions. Having someone else shoulder that burden can make your wedding more enjoyable.
Buying a wedding package can also add in some fun extra things to your wedding for free. Candy carts, complimentary bedrooms for certain guests, or an after party for your guests once you leave may also be included in your package for no extra cost. You may not have been able to afford these things on your own, but with a package deal you could.
Now, a wedding package may not be for you if you are looking for a unique wedding. Companies tend to have a few different wedding templates that they reuse over and over to same themselves (and you) time in planning. Having templates means the same decor, menu, music, and lighting are reused. If you are wanting a lot of very specific things, then a package deal may not be the right choice.
You should look into the vendors and suppliers that the wedding company uses. Wedding vendors are used over and over when they produce good results, so wedding companies will keep using ones they like. You may not want to use a specific vendor in the area though. It might also be possible to add in a specific vendor to the package if you want to do that. What is included in the wedding package and what is not is important to understand. Most of the time it is pretty straightforward, but if it putting up red flags, don’t ignore them.Whether you book a wedding package or not, just make sure that it is what is going to make your special day the best it can be.
