Budgeting (and things not to forget)

Recommended Posts

I guess I just assumed I'll still need to rent the sound system to have music played during the actual ceremony.

I would check with your resort. At our resort, we have to rent a sound system separately for the ceremony. It's $180. We are then using a DJ for the ceremony. It turns out that the DJ will be our sound system tech for the ceremony as well.

Depending on what you and your groom are wearing, I'd budget in a dress steam and a suit press. It wasnt very expensive at our resort and made everything look so crisp and well-kept.

Also, I am writing down things that I may or may not want - this way I can make decisions as I go.

Here is my list so far, please suggest anything that I may be forgetting or haven't thought of and this can be helpful to anyone who is at this point in the planning stages.
