Show: My Fair Wedding
As a wedding professional who has worked in the industry since 1991, I can honestly say that Central California is behind in wedding style. No offense to anyone who may read this, and don't get me wrong, , , I've seen a fair number of what I would refer to as "high-end" weddings, , , ,however, overall, the weddings I've seen and have worked at in Central California are quite lacking in the "style" department.
Often, when I learn about how much a couple spent on their wedding, I expect to see the most fabulous wedding ever. This expectation however, is almost always a big let down, when I finally arrive at the ceremony location, only to see little to no decorations for the ceremony, , and then the most simple, plain (even boring) decor for the reception.
Granted, the economy has not been great, however, surprisingly, wedding spending has been affected very little according to third party statistics. So, where's all the money going?, one might say! Although this is not a question that any one person can answer, , , , through the years, I've seen some (in my opinion), very petty wedding spending.
Petty wedding spending? Yes, and I'm NOT referring to money well spent on a wedding photographer, or a wedding florist, or a fabulous wedding cake. I'm referring to money, that has been spent without in depth research. By that, I'm referring to couples who may simply and quickly spend money on (for example) a local memorial building in order to save money on their overall wedding costs. My experience has taught me that in the long run this type of thinking can actually end up costing the couple as much, or more than they would have spent on a much nicer, prettier, all inclusive venue that specializes in weddings.
Imagination is (for me), the best way to stretch your wedding budget. Engaged couples today, may be too busy, or stressed to even imagine having an imagination. Believe me when I say this, , , , some of the most memorable, visually stunning, and gorgeous weddings I've had the pleasure of working at, have been of the couples who not only budgeted for a fabulous wedding, but also used their imaginations to make the most of every dollar spent. Use your creative abilities, or that of your friends and family to help you come up with, or even create the most fabulous visuals, and decor for you and your guests to remember forever!
