Budgeting and cutting corners don’t mean your wedding day won’t be special. It can be a glorious affair that guests will talk about years from now. It will also be the best day of your life. Don’t be afraid to save money and pull back in some areas. But be sure to loosen the reigns in others because there will be times when you should spare no expense for your outdoor wedding.
1. The Flowers
Flowers are hands down one of the most expensive elements of a wedding—and with good reason. Aside from the happy couple, guests will be looking at the flowers a lot. They beautify and transform the most mundane places into magical spaces.
Because of what they can do for your wedding’s scenery, don’t hold back! Start setting up a fund for the flowers now. Naturally, you’ll want flowers that are in season and fresh on that day. Nothing dead should come close to your wedding. Plus, you want that bouquet to look lush and full for all the pictures.
2. The Bar
Don’t hold back on that open bar. Nothing says thank you to your guests like free liquor. It’s a given for most weddings, and if you can swing it, don’t hesitate. Inform your guests of the open bar before the wedding so they can make arrangements.
You don’t want anyone driving under the influence. Or you can provide them with a shuttle service. Some local volunteer centers have programs for driving people home who have been drinking. See if there’s one in your area. Get some volunteers so everyone stays safe and happy.
3. The Bathroom
With all those drinks flowing, guests will need to find a bathroom quickly. Why not provide them with the best of the best? Instead of the standard porta-potties, rent restroom trailers. Restroom trailers are more budget-friendly than most people assume.
Plus, guests get better accommodations automatically with a restroom trailer. The units come with a running sink, a flushable toilet, and a full-length mirror. Guests get to check out their outfits before stepping back out—and the units come climate-controlled. No one wants to deal with an overheated bathroom.
3. The Desserts
People will be talking about the atmosphere, the music, and the food. But do you know what they’ll really be talking about? The desserts. After they say, “The bride looked beautiful,” you will hear, “and that cake was amazing!”
Spare no expense for that dessert table. They’ll want something sweet to go with all the champagne. You have many dessert options to choose from no matter the season. Pick a nice selection to offer something everyone can enjoy.
Some things you should spare no expense on when it comes to your wedding because you deserve the best of the best.
