The wedding day is the most important day in a person’s life. Everyone among us starts dreaming about the D-day right from childhood itself. The ideas do change as we grow up over time, but one thing that doesn’t change is our dream of a fairy-tale wedding (in today’s world you can say the Pinterest perfect wedding).
We get ideas and we keep pinning them until the day when we actually go ahead with wedding plans and budget. The first setback you will come across is right while booking the unique wedding venue.
Australians are known as big spenders for making their wedding day look perfect. On an average, it is estimated that a couple spends as much as $13,000 on just the wedding venue. So the question is, should you actually spend so much money on the wedding venue? I know it is a topic for debate, but think again and see whether it is healthy to splurge so much money on the venue and go into debt for the coming 10 years? But answering it means another question rising, should you go for a cheap wedding venue in Melbourne?
Going for a cheap wedding venue depends on what all things they include in the price of the venue. Cheap venues normally misled the couples by showing the low-price tag, but with it comes the hidden charges. In addition, filling the service gaps of a traditional venue, such as silverware, portable toilets, and kitchen appliances get difficult to handle. So if you are planning to go for a cheap wedding venue, make sure that you take a close look at the services and packages they provide you. Some of the factors that you should check are –
It is important that you check the amenities before you book the venue. If the venue is cheap but basic amenities such as bathrooms, kitchen, and heat or air conditioning is not available, then you will ultimately end up paying more than you had expected.
· Alcohol Policy
Check the alcohol policies of the venue if they are letting you provide your own alcohol at the wedding party. Providing your own alcohol will cut down the costs from $1,000 to merely $20 to $30.
Check if the venue is providing you a parking space. Or where else would you and your guests park their cars? Moreover, if the venue is off location, then you might also need the shuttle services. So make a note of that too.
· Ask About Plan B
If the venue is providing you with an amazing outdoor landscape view for your special moment, then ask them about their plan B in case of rain or other weather occurrences on the day. If they do not have any backup plan like tents or something, then it will ultimately increase your costs.
There is no harm in booking a cheap wedding venue, after all, it is about your happiness and ideas. The only thing you need to focus on is that these cheap venues don’t lead you to some hidden expenses that you later find out to be more expensive.
