There are many paths you can take with wedding planning, from hiring a wedding planner to taking things into your hands. Either way, you will need to invest some time in planning the event. But if you are looking to save some money and time, we recommend you find a wedding package including as much as you need for your event, but not every package is ideal for every wedding. Here are a few things to consider before hiring your wedding package.

1. Find a package right for your wedding size.

Weddings come in all sizes and styles. Regardless of the number of guests, you should find a wedding package that fills your needs and dreams. Although most of the wedding packages are targeted for large gatherings, you might also find small wedding packages in Essex. Ideally, a wedding package should include everything you need and adapt to the size of your event.

When you hire a wedding package, you save time and money because you are only communicating with one vendor and get many services from them. And since you are hiring multiple services, this lowers the cost of transportation, meetings, and pickup for the vendor resulting in a better price than hiring each service individually.

2. Think about your wedding budget.

Wedding budget

The first step every couple should take when planning their wedding is to talk about money because there is nothing more frustrating than falling in love with a wedding package in not being able to afford it. So as your wedding plans begin, make time to sit and talk about the expectations you both have and your bank account balance.

Make sure you consider your income for the months remaining until your big celebration since they can help you add more to the budget. You can also talk about your plans with your close family and find out if they will contribute with money, don’t make the mistake of assuming your relatives will pay for something without consulting with them.

As you start looking for wedding packages, ensure they fit into your budget while including all the services you need. For some couples, the most important is wedding entertainment, while others might focus on event management services; either way, try to find a vendor who adapts to your needs. Wedding packages are wonderful because they allow you to have all the amazing details you dream of while keeping a low cost.

3. Prefer an all-inclusive package.

Packages can adjust to the needs of your event, but how amazing is it to find all-inclusive wedding packages to save you from having to visit a dozen individual vendors, signing a dozen contracts, and keeping in touch with each of them for wedding details and questions. Never underestimate how practical it is as an all-inclusive package.

Some of the most common all-inclusive wedding packages are offered by wedding venues and hotels or resorts. They have it all, from the venue to the catering and decorations. Still, if you want a tailored experience, you can find vendors who specialise in a couple of services, and you still have the perks of all-inclusive packages. For example, you could hire a wedding venue, including catering and bar. And hire another vendor who takes care of wedding entertainment, event management services, and even offers decorations, including wedding backdrop hire.

4. Ask important questions.

You will find many wedding packages in Essex. Still, not every package is worth hiring, and to ensure you are dealing with a professional; we encourage you to ask the right questions to your potential vendor. But what should I ask, you might be thinking? We have years of experience in the wedding and event industry, so here are some crucial questions your wedding package provider should answer.

  • What does my wedding package include?
  • What is your cancellation policy?
  • What happens if you cannot attend my event?
  • Do you have other weddings booked for the same weekend?
  • Are there other fees not included in the cost?
  • What is the last possible date for changes?
  • When should I provide the final headcount?
  • Do you have insurance covered, or is it something I should hire?

You might add some more questions depending on the service provider offering the wedding package. For example, if you are hiring an entertainment vendor for your wedding, here are some questions you can ask.

  • What is your arrival hour?
  • How much space do you need for set up?
  • Can I provide a list of songs for the DJ to play?
  • Does the DJ also offer MC services?
  • Do you offer event management services?

Finally, if you feel like your wedding package vendor is not giving you clear answers to your questions, it would be best to find a new vendor. Professional wedding vendors have enough experience to have an answer to common questions, and if they don’t, they will get back to you later with the answer.

5. Find vendors who align with your vision.

When you start looking for potential vendors, it is important to have a clear vision regarding the style you prefer for your wedding so that you can find vendors with experience. This is a crucial matter because each wedding is as unique as the couple saying I do. If you want a chic and modern wedding, you can’t hire a vendor specialising in classic or vintage celebrations.

Each vendor has its style and way of work, so try to be clear about what you are looking for. If possible, make an album including photos to be more specific because what you describe as rustic might be more romantic when they see the photos. After meeting a couple of vendors, you can make an informed decision.
