Hotel and travel
The stakes tend to double, triple, or perhaps even quadruple if you are planning to hold your wedding in the other side of the world from where you are right now. Even if you are planning to go ahead and hold your wedding out at a venue that is fairly closer to home, you need to understand the fact that you are bound to book a hotel and perhaps even a little bit of travel on the side and this costs money. You are probably going to be paying for the expenses of all of your other closest friends and relatives but paying for the expenses of your bridesmaids as well can turn out to be really hurtful for your pockets and you need to do something about this as much as you possibly can.
Your bridesmaids can pay for their own hotel accommodations and travel expenses. If you would like to be a little more considerate with the way that you get things done, perhaps you can go halfway with them and pay for a portion of their expenses but nothing more. You are already paying for so much during the wedding. You don’t need this extra on the side eating into your budget if you can help it. You will be hiring your Bristol wedding photographer, your consultant, along with other expensive wedding vendors as well for the wedding.
You might want to coordinate bridesmaids dress as with all of the other brides out there and you can. You don’t have to pay for it though. You can talk to them and you can plan things out with them but at the end of the day, you need to remember the fact that they will be taking the dresses home with them and it is actually something that they can reuse somewhere along the way so try to see if this is the type of thing that you can go ahead and look into one way or the other at some point or so. Go dress shopping together. You can use it as a bonding activity for you and for the rest of all of your other bridesmaids or your inner wedding party. You don’t have to pay for it. But perhaps it would be better if you have a conversation about this. Go for something visually impacting that your Bristol wedding photographer will really be able to appreciate at the end of the day.
The bridal shower is usually a surprise and it is the type of thing that your maid of honor and bridesmaids usually come up with without you knowing about it so it goes without saying that you wouldn’t be paying for this particular expense. It is usually on them.
Hair and makeup
Hiring a professional Bristol wedding photographer is just as important as hiring a professional hair and makeup stylist but you don’t have to pay for other people’s. At best, you can try to see if you can get them a discount from the stylist that you have hired out.
