Top Seven Investments for Your Wedding

There are a lot of decisions that go into planning your wedding day. There are approximately 5,000 details that go into your special day whether they are big or small. This can be overwhelming, so we decided to help you out a little bit and give you a list of the 7 best investments for your wedding day. We feel that these are some of the most important parts of your day, and definitely aspects that you can, and should, splurge on.





1. Strike a Pose


A good photographer that you trust is key. You are going to have these pictures forever so you want to make sure you like the photographers work. Research photographers by looking at Instagram, Facebook, or searching online for recommended photographers in your wedding area. Make sure you like the style of their work and the way they edit their photos. The best photographers often don’t come with the best price; however, this is one aspect you want to splurge on. Spending a little extra on beautiful photos is better than saving a little and ending up with blurry pictures with your heads cut off.






2. May Your Day Be as Flawless as Your Makeup


Hiring a trained wedding hair and makeup team that can come to you can help alleviate a lot of stress on your wedding day. Professionals that often work with brides and bridesmaids will know how to handle small and large groups in a timely fashion. They will also come prepared with the necessary equipment to make you feel as beautiful as you possibly can be. Research hair stylists and makeup artists on social media in order to find someone you can feel confident in and trust.





3. I Wanna Dance With Somebody


Music is also an important part of your wedding day. One of the big decisions when planning your reception is whether to go with a DJ or band. When making the decision, think about what you would want to see and hear at someone else’s wedding if you were a guest.





4. Good Food = Good Mood


Having good food is an important part of your wedding day. Spending time looking for the right caterer can help everyone feel happier in the long run. Being able to enjoy your food while also having your guests rave about it is a great feeling. Good food is one aspect that will definitely leave your guests talking about your wedding for decades.






5. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue


Florals are a decor element that immediately catch the eye of your guests. They can help provide a pop of color or detail to the venue space and decor. They are natural statement pieces that are so versatile; incorporate them in your centerpieces or ceremony backdrop. Plus, there are many different ways you can preserve your florals after your wedding such as pressing them, using silica gel, using epoxy resin, or dipping them in wax to name a few.






6. A Very Special Venue for a Very Special Occasion


A beautiful venue can provide the perfect backdrop for your ceremony, reception, and photos. Depending on the style of your wedding, location, and time of year, there are so many wedding styles to choose from. If you are going for a more natural style wedding, a farmhouse or garden could be the perfect place. Or if you are looking for vintage vibes, a historic home is a great option.






7. All You Need is Love… and a Wedding Planner


According to brides.com, if you choose your planner wisely you can actually save money. Wedding planners help with budget constraints, keep things on track, get you vendor discounts, handle the transition from the ceremony to the reception, coordinate your entire wedding, and even help guide you if you decide to postpone or switch your wedding to an elopement or micro wedding due to a pandemic (thanks COVID-19 for this new one). If you’re struggling with the decision to go with a planner, it is definitely worth the investment. They help alleviate a majority of the stresses so you can enjoy your big day.
