A Guest Blog Post from Samantha Redman of On-Site Productions
Value and style are two words that everyone knows – but do we really understand them when it comes to planning a wedding? What we want to talk to you about today is what those words actually mean and why it’s worth investing in both. Everyone has a budget, whether you have unlimited funds or not, and we get that! If there is ever a time to determine what is valuable to you and what your style truly is, it’s your wedding day, and it should be something that you remember for the rest of your life. If you don’t have an experienced professional to help you through your wedding planning (which we highly suggest!), we want to offer a few words of advice.
There is inspiration everywhere these days, especially online. Understand that everything you want may not be feasible with your budget or timetable. If you want a certain venue that is more expensive, that may leave you with less to invest in your florals, lighting, music, and other elements.
Another tip is that you really do get what you pay for. Vendors who have been in business for years ultimately will cost more than the “new guy.” If you value experience, reputation, knowledge, and the ability to work well with other vendors, then this is what you want to prioritize. If finding the lowest price is your most important decision-making factor, you may not be able to have all of those qualities in your vendors. This is how researching your people can really make a difference in your wedding experience.
Style is another factor that plays a huge part in your day. Your event should be a reflection of who you and your fiancé are and should be a style that you both love! We always recommend that a bride or groom who is looking for inspiration look at our Instagram. It shows not only professional photos of our work, but on our Stories, you can see real-time views of events and how we present our work. Our style is special to our company, and we want our clients to want that look at their events.
As we wrap up this bit of advice, just keep in mind that your wedding day will be something that you want to remember forever. You may not remember every little detail from that day, but you will definitely remember the process and how you felt the first time you saw it all come together.
We wish you love and blessings in the journey ahead!
