If you are planning a wedding, you are probably overwhelmed by all of the different options to choose from out there. One of the first decisions you should make is if you want a wedding package or not. They might not work for you, but they also might be a lifesaver. Here are some tips to help you evaluate your specific situation and make the best decision.
People with short engagements might benefit from a wedding package. Or if you and your husband-to-be are both super busy. Or if you have a hard time making decisions. A wedding package might be the best options if you think you fit into any of those categories. They eliminate a lot of the time and stress that go into planning a wedding. You make a few simple decisions and the wedding company will take care of the rest. Having someone else shoulder that burden can make your wedding more enjoyable.
You also might get fun extras for free when you buy a wedding package. 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. They can be expensive and seem out of reach if you plan on your own, but are totally doable if you get a package deal.
Now, a wedding package may not be for you if you are looking for a unique wedding. Choosing from a few different templates saves you and the wedding company a lot of time when you plan your wedding. Having templates means the same decor, menu, music, and lighting are reused. This probably isn’t the best option if you are hoping to have your wedding match your personality with a lot of small details.
You should look into the vendors and suppliers that the wedding company uses. The companies offering the package often use the same local vendors because they are used to working with them and know what to expect. You may not want to use a specific vendor in the area though. Or if you have a very specific supplier in mind, you will have to see if they can be incorporated into the package if the company doesn’t already have a working relationship with them. You will also have to make sure that you are getting what you pay for with a wedding package. You shouldn’t ignore red flags that something isn’t right with your wedding package.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.
