It can be overwhelming to choose between all the options when you are planning a wedding. Deciding if you want a wedding package or not is one of these choices. They might not work for you, but they also might be a lifesaver. You can make the best decision for your situation if you keep these tips in mind.
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. Or if you have a hard time making decisions. People in those categories might want to get a wedding package. They eliminate a lot of the time and stress that go into planning a wedding. You make a few simple decisions and the wedding company will take care of the rest. 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. You might get to enjoy candy carts, complimentary bedrooms for guests, or an after party for the guests after you leave. These make some things that were once out of reach seem possible.
You might want to steer clear of packages if you want 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. Having templates means the same decor, menu, music, and lighting are reused. 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. Wedding vendors are used over and over when they produce good results, so wedding companies will keep using ones they like. 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 should be careful to not what is included in the wedding package and what is not. “Too good to be true” scenarios are usually risky, so don’t ignore red flags.Whether you book a wedding package or not, just make sure that it is what is going to make your special day the best it can be.
