Wedding Tip Wednesday: Timing Adjustments

“Remember to consider the practicality of scheduling adjustments! When it comes to booking a venue, a band or any number of event-related entities, the cost will usually fluctuate depending on the time. You can use this to your advantage in an effort to accommodate any overly expensive wishes of the couple you’re working with.

Typically, Fridays and Sundays are ‘less expensive’ nights than Saturdays. Prices could also oscillate seasonally depending on the time of year. So work with your client and suggest a practical compromise. Maybe the bride would be willing to shift the timing of the big day if it meant she could afford a dream location that would otherwise be out of budget.”
