The colors of the room clash with my wedding hues. Wedding reception table. The Expert: Alison Hotchkiss of Alison Events in San Francisco. The Style Hack: "Don`t fight the design flaw—embrace it," Hotchkiss says. "If the carpet is a green zigzag, pull that color into the napkins or the seat cushions." Not for you? Try draping the walls with fabric or covering the floor with a sisal rug. If you`ve chosen a palette with a metallic or a neutral, make that hue more prominent in the décor and save the bolder color for details like your invitations or signature sip. The space isn’t big enough for two separate setups. Loft-style wedding ceremony. The Expert: Dora Manuel of Viva Bella Events in Cincinnati. The Style Hack: Fret not! Just "flip" the space. You can use the flowers on the ceremony aisle for reception centerpieces, and your rental chairs can serve double duty too. But factor in extras. "We always keep backup draping on hand," Manuel says. Draping can hide things that aren`t easy to move, like a 12-piece band. You can also use it to frame the ceremony or hide preset tables.
Arrange Help for Any Guests Who Need It. If you have any ill or elderly guests coming to your wedding, it will be meaningful for them to know you`re so glad they can attend. Show your love by making sure they have proper transportation to and from the airport and your wedding events and that they have a comfortable place to stay. You can ask family members, friends or attendants to help with any pick-ups and drop-offs. Hand These Items Off. Getting married also means having a lot of important things to distribute among your family and attendants. Give your marriage license to your officiant. Present attendants with gifts at the rehearsal dinner. Present parents and each other with gifts. Give wedding bands to the best man and the maid of honor to hold during the ceremony. Give the best man the officiant`s fee envelope to be handed off after the ceremony. Hand off place cards, table cards, menus, favors and any other items for setting the tables to the caterer and/or reception site manager.
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.
