5 Surprising Wedding Costs

Venue, flowers, cake, DJ, photographer, videographer, wedding planner – these are all expected costs that you’ve created your wedding budget around. However, there are also some expenses that you may not have thought of for your wedding.

1. Postage

Be sure to take a look at the weight of your invitations as well as the shape of your invitation. All of htese contribute to the overall postage. Don’t forget to include save-the-dates, RSVP cards, and thank you notes.

2. Meals on Your Big Day

Remember to feed your wedding party. It doesn’t have to be an all out food explosion, but you do need to make sure your wedding party is well fed. Pick up bagels from Panera or meet for lunch at a local cafe.

3. Oops!

Sometimes no matter how many times you’ve checked your list, an item is forgotten. Tip: pack a week before your wedding and enlist a friend or relative to double check it.

4. Gifts

Everyone remembers the bridal party, but don’t forget about the parents and other family memebers.

5.  Vendor Meals

More than likely your photographer and videographer will be with you for the entire wedding (and beofre!) Some vendors even require a meal in their contract. When adding the cost of food, be sure ot include meals for them.
