Planning a wedding is so much fun that you can easily get in over your head. Splurge here to spend a little extra, and before you know it, you have committed a wedding that is beyond the road. The deposits and final payments looming, it can be a very scary situation for the bride or her parents to find themselves. Find out what steps you can take to save your wedding if you run out of money.
This is very, very easy to end up with a wedding that costs too much, especially since the design is spread over several months. If you only pay a third to half of what things actually cost, it is easy to lose track of the total. In some families, it's not up there close to the wedding day, and begin to add up final payment is due for all to realize that you can not cover their bills. This is a terrible situation for all families. What? Cancel the wedding? Hard to suppliers? Fill admission to the reception? No no and no.
What you need to do first and foremost is to have a frank discussion of the wedding venue and vendors. Explain the situation and ask them how you can solve. Be clear with them that it is important for them to pay the bills, so no one thinks to try to weasel out of paying what you owe them. Perhaps the flower centerpieces would be willing to build the cost of the equipment. Or he could leave the expensive extras, such as a crystal bouquets to suit your crystal bridal jewelry. The photographer might allow you to cut back a small package, or to come to the ceremony and cake cutting only, instead of the pre-ceremony pictures until the last dance. As long as the manufacturers have not actually spent money on supplies for the wedding, then perhaps willing to renegotiate the contract.
As for the reception venue, call the event manager at a time and make an appointment. Figure out your finances before the meeting, so we have a clear picture of the difference between what you owe and what you can actually pay. If the difference is not insurmountably wide, it would be possible to be creative and the wedding menu to be off balance (again, it ought to be, before anything can be ordered at the reception). Choose a less expensive entrees and appetizers, champagne substitute imported French Champagne or a change to a full open bar of wine and beer only. In some cases, this will be enough to get the balance down to what you can allow themselves.
If you can not afford what you owe on the site, then you need to consider dramatic action. You may change the time for the evening wedding reception brunch? You could save thousands in this way. Another possible solution is that the day of the wedding on Saturday or Sunday to Thursday. Sites typically charge less non-primary day and might be willing to allow you to change something to save the situation. Although the idea of changing the wedding date is hard to swallow, keep in mind that even looks like a beautiful wedding dress and pearl bridal jewelry on Thursday, as he had on Saturday.
Finally, it will release all the extras we have not yet committed to purchasing. Perhaps without a wedding favor, as it can be without a ritual as a soloist. Cutting back can be difficult, but it's well worth it to find a way to save the wedding.
