The walls are the worst—ugly wallpaper and medieval sconces! Gobo lighting at a wedding reception. The Expert: Brian Worley of yourBASH! in Santa Monica, California. The Style Hack: While you can`t exactly redecorate, you can shift the focus. "I like to transform a space with what I call `moving wallpaper`—we use projectors and add moving images to the walls," Worley says. This trick also doubles as a lighting feature, giving the space a unique look. If a dozen projectors aren`t in your budget, stick to lighting that masks the design. Uplighting and gobos can transform a space instantly—even old wallpaper can disappear amid a soft, colorful glow. The drapes are patterned, and the venue won’t take them down. Draped ceiling wedding reception. The Expert: Annie Lee of Daughter of Design in New York City. The Style Hack: "Buy yards of simple fabric and pin them over the offending drapes," Lee says. It`s a quick fix—no sewing required—and it can really transform the venue. Unlimited budget? Drape the whole space! Coordinate your fabric choices with your table linens, working in a texture or small pattern to keep things fresh and fun.
Why It`s Hidden: If you use the cake or liquor provided by your reception site, the charge is typically wrapped into the cost. Going with an outside baker or your own wine can raise the price. Why? Because your venue`s workers are responsible for slicing and serving each piece, then cleaning the dishes—and this means more work for their staff. The Cost: From $2 to $5 per guest for the cake; from $1.50 to $3 for every bottle the staff opens. How to Avoid It: Be up front. Ask about cake cutting and corkage fees before you decide to go with an outside source for either. Cleanup and Breakdown Costs. Why It`s Hidden: Many couples spend so much time planning the actual day they forget to budget for what happens when it`s all over. The Cost: While a full-service venue won`t charge for these things, if you`re paying a flat fee to rent only the space, anticipate additional charges for garbage removal (up to $250) and cleaning (up to $500). And even most full-service venues require same-day setup and cleanup. So if you`re getting married on a weekend, expect to pay time and a half for labor, and if your party goes into the wee hours of the morning, you may face extra charges for late-night pickup and cleanup. How to Avoid It: Read your contract carefully—the setup and breakdown costs should be included in the labor charge. Non-Approved Professionals. Why It`s Hidden: Some venues require you to use caterers or florists from their preferred pros list—and tack on a fee if you don`t. The Cost: Usually an extra 20 percent or more. How to Avoid It: Stick to their list of preferred vendors, or choose a venue without one.
