WeddingWire.com editor Kim Forrest, planner Trisha Cranor of Working Brides and Jamie Sears of Simply Chic Events share tips on how to save money and explain when a splurge can be worth it.
Splurge A venue can be worth spending a large share of the budget for multiple reasons. WeddingWire.com editor Kim Forrest says it is crucial to think about guests’ comfort and their experience, and to ensure there is plenty of space. Jamie Sears, owner of Simply Chic Events, notes that a nicer venue may require less decor, which can save money elsewhere in a budget. Sears also stresses lighting in a venue: “You could have less flowers, but if the room is lit well, it just looks amazing.” Tracy A. Woodward/The Washington Post Buy Photo
