What is the average cost of a wedding in the United States?

Planning a wedding can be incredibly expensive, so it is essential for any couple getting married to consider the cost. According to the Bridal Association of America, the average wedding costs $30,000 in the United States, including wedding attire, catering, decorations, and photography. Wow! That's more than some people make in a year! While there are many ways couples can save money—from DIY projects to intimate ceremonies with close friends and family members instead of hundreds of guests. Ultimately, happy couples should strive to ensure they don't sacrifice their real budget expectations when planning their wedding day. Happy wedding planning!

Do you require a down payment?

it comes to wedding plans or any festive occasion, you must be sure of your decisions! That's why we require a non-refundable down payment when signing the contract. This is so that when you say "Yes!" you mean it with certainty and security. Don't worry; after making your tough decision, you can sit back and relax, knowing that we are taking care of all the wedding planning details from there!

Do we need to provide wedding or event permits and insurance?

Planning a wedding or event is enough to stress out even the most relaxed bride or host, and small details can often be overlooked. But when it comes to weddings and event permits, don’t let these slip through the cracks! Depending on where your wedding or event is taking place, local laws may require you to obtain a permit for it to take place. To ensure that your special day goes off without a hitch, we strongly recommend looking into wedding or event insurance, too - this will give you peace of mind. We’ve worked with many wedding and event insurers over the years, so we can quickly help point you in the right direction so that you find the perfect insurance provider for your celebration!

When is the final payment due?

Planning a wedding or any other event should not involve much payment stress. That's why we offer total payments due just 30 days from your wedding date or any other occasion. Our easy payment plan ensures that you can focus more on what matters most: celebrating your special day! Our timeline helps you stay organized and on track for a successful event.

What are some risks of having family or friends help plan your wedding or event?

When wedding planning or planning any event or occasion, it’s understandable that family and friends want to get involved. However, if not handled with care, their involvement can turn conflictive: everyone has different ideas of what the day should look like! At this point, the wedding couple (or ‘marriers,’ as we call them!) often finds themselves giving in to keep the peace. But here at our company, we ensure wedding couples are the ones calling the shots! Our team puts a massive emphasis on providing the wedding couple's vision is executed promptly while their family and friends enjoy being part of such a memorable day. So don't worry – with us on your wedding/event team, you won't have to worry about any conflicting opinions!
