The absolute need for main courses on the menu.
3You don’t have to go for the main courses all the time. They can be really expensive and to be honest, they can turn out to be a bit on the heavy side of things. Your guests aren’t there for the food. Your guests are there to share your memories with you. Play things out ahead of time and try to be creative with the food choices that you have. Take note of the fact that if you go for full course meals, you are more or less obliged to get things by the plate. One person would have to mean that you need to pay for one plate. This might not sound like a lot to go through with in the beginning but it can add up pretty quickly if you aren’t careful about it. If you don’t do anything about it, you might easily go off the rails with your wedding budget and this can leave your wedding planning process in a fairly precarious position. Something that you can really do without if you opt for food stations instead.
One smart idea would be for you to plan out a brunch wedding.
Think about it. You can have a fairly generous buffet spread of breakfast food items that will turn out to be just as filling for you without the overly expensive costs of say, salmon, steak, halibut, and what-have-you’s. Remember the fact that you also have wedding photographers from Portsmouth as well as planners, coordinators, drivers to feed. You need to be practical with your approach when it comes to things like this.
People not finding their way to the venue.
Honestly, people. This is the 21st century. People rely on word of mouth or on maps for directions anymore; or at least not the analog maps. They have GPS and Waze and all of those other good stuff that technology has to offer out to them. You can be rest assured of the fact that for as long as they have internet, they can more or less work anything out. They won’t be lost on their way to the wedding. Plus, you can easily discuss directions with them. You can even have a digital sketch of your wedding venue that you can blast out to them via email or via social media. Communicating has become fairly easy these days and something that you should make the most use out of. Make sure that your wedding photographers from Portsmouth are given the right directions and instructions as well as they need to be there early.
The liquor selection turning people off. Something that paranoid budgeting brides tend to worry about is the aspect of not having expensive champagne that people can toast to. You don’t need all of that extra cost. Just have a decent selection of wines and beers and you should be fine. You don’t have to overdo the booze at all.
The need for extravagant party favors.
You even have the option to opt out of it completely if you honestly don’t see its importance or if you honestly feel as if the wedding budget won’t cut it.
