Wedding Costs to Keep in Mind

Planning ahead for your wedding is very important. Naturally, you want to book the location of your wedding ceremony first. It’s also important to book the place for your wedding reception as quickly as you can – as early as a year to nine months before the ceremony, according to The Knot.

You and your partner have a lot of planning to do, and it’s important to stay on top of your wedding costs. Here are some that may sneak up on you.


What does the USPS have to do with your upcoming wedding? It could be a lot if you are mailing fancy wedding invitations. You could be paying a lot more to have those mailed than if you used traditional-sized paper. That’s a wedding cost to consider before designing your invites.

Band Equipment

Are you going to have a live band play at your reception? Your wedding cost could depend on whether they need to have more equipment due to the size of the venue. You can easily fix this by talking with them beforehand and telling them the dimensions and having them explain what they will need to play well. Then, you can determine if the price is right.


A wedding reception can require a lot of cleanup. This can be a hidden wedding cost if you’re not careful. If you use a private venue, this could be built into the overall price, but you need to make sure beforehand. Just ask the organizer about it.


What about ensuring everyone in the bride’s wedding party has their hair and make-up done to their standards? You may consider hiring a professional hair stylist and make-up artist for the morning of your wedding. Not only will these professionals ensure everyone’s hair and make-up looks excellent, but it also provides a level of convenience and ease on the morning of your wedding. However, with this luxury comes a price. Be considerate of your wedding party and ensure this wedding cost is affordable for everyone involved.

Your wedding is supposed to be one of the most joyous times of your life. You can have a spectacular one and keep it well within your budget. If you’re about to start planning your wedding, do you want the best location for your reception? Contact Renaissance Miami today to learn more!
