Ask Colin: Wedding Budget


What is the biggest wedding budget don’t?

Don’t think quantity over quality. Pick three things and do them well rather than 5 things on the skinny. Spend your money where your guests will get the most out it. Offer a better cut of meat and quality of wine instead of party favors; serve a delicious 3-course meal including dessert instead of an elaborate multi course menu. Offer a signature cocktail instead of the proverbial red wine, white wine and water, save them for the meal service. And rather than hiring a band, book a DJ…find one who understands how to work the energy in the room so when it’s time to party everyone is on the dance floor.
