With the average Asian wedding costing in excess of £50,000, it’s now more important than ever to ensure you spend those pennies wisely; and a lot of this comes down to selecting the right suppliers for your event.
The cost of a supplier is reflected largely in the quality of the products or service they offer. The level of customer service offered and event portfolio should all be taken into consideration when you’re looking to make a decision. Unfortunately, more often than not, a lot of couples end up making the wrong decision in order to save a few hundred (or sometimes thousand) pounds, which ends up in a lot of heartache and tears when they’re left feeling disappointed and let down on their wedding day.
So, I’ve put together a list of 4 areas which should be a priority when it comes to your budget to ensure you have no regrets when it comes to your wedding celebrations.
Hiring a wedding planner will be one of the best investments you make for your special day. Not only will he or she be able to help you manage your budget from the get go, but you’ll also receive trusted advice when it comes to finding the right suppliers, and and putting together timings and floor pans. A good wedding planner will manage your event seamlessly, no matter what emergencies crop up on the day, leaving you and your guests to enjoy the celebrations in complete peace.
Food is one of the most important aspects of the day. You must ensure that the catering team not only provides an excellent menu filled with great flavour and top notch presentation, but a team of professional waiting and bar staff who will leave your guests feeling impressed.
You will want to ensure that after your special day is over, you have some amazing images to look back on and share with family and friends. Opt for an experienced photographer who can give you a clear working time frame. Good photographers will have a turnaround time of less than 6 months.
When choosing your DJ ensure the quality of their equipment is of a high standard; this includes everything from screens, speakers, lighting to the booth and dance floor. Not only do you need an experienced DJ with a good knowledge of music and mixing, but you want someone who is able to understand your taste and style. There’s nothing worse than a DJ who is unable to make announcements and keep your guests engaged and on the dance floor, so spending a little extra will mean you and your guests will enjoy the night until the very last song.
