It can be overwhelming to choose between all the options when you are planning a wedding. One thing you will have to decide is if you want to get a wedding package or not. They might not work for you, but they also might be a lifesaver. Here are some tips to help you evaluate your specific situation and make the best decision.
If you have a shorter engagement, then a wedding package might be right for you. Or if you and your husband-to-be are both super busy. If you struggle to make decisions, then a wedding package can really help you. People in those categories might want to get a wedding package. Some of your time will be freed up and it will be much less stressful if you get a wedding package. The company will lay out your options, and then you just have to make a few simple decisions. Having someone else shoulder that burden can make your wedding more enjoyable.
Buying a wedding package can also add in some fun extra things to your wedding for free. Candy carts, complimentary bedrooms for guests, or an after party might be included in your package. They can be expensive and seem out of reach if you plan on your own, but are totally doable if you get a package deal.
Now, a wedding package may not be for you if you are looking for a unique wedding. Companies tend to have a few different wedding templates that they reuse over and over to same themselves (and you) time in planning. Most of their clients will use the same decor, menu, music, and lighting. If you want a unique location or details to match your personality specifically, then this probably isn’t for you.
You also want to make sure that the vendors and suppliers that the company uses are ones you want to support. The companies offering the package often use the same local vendors because they are used to working with them and know what to expect. You may not want to use a specific vendor in the area though. You might also have a vendor you really want to use that will need to be added to the package. You will also have to make sure that you are getting what you pay for with a wedding package. “Too good to be true” scenarios are usually risky, so don’t ignore red flags.You should focus on making your special day the best it can be when deciding whether or not to book a wedding package.
