CSW Article: Making Dollars and Sense of Your Day

I was asked by Chicago Style Weddings to share some budget, cost-saving wedding planning tips for couples planning their wedding.  I'm a firm believer in discussing budget and guest count FIRST before the planning even begins.  Then consider hiring a professional and seasoned wedding planner to assist you with find the best vendors for your budget.  Take a look at what we had to say:

...To that number, they [the couple] needs to estimate the added amounts of wedding cash gifts as well as money from their parents and other family members and friends who have committed to contributing.  "Candidly ask what dollar amount they would like to give or if they would like to contribute toward the cost of a particular vendor or item, says Desiree' Moore Dent, president and lead planner of Dejanae Events.  "Even modest donations can add up to help pay for high priced expenses."
"Many planners work with preferred vendors that offer specials and discounts to their wedding clients, " says Dent of Dejanae Events.  "Our goal is to assist couples by seeking out vendors who give stellar service and who successfully work within their budget."

Until next time...WEDologize!
