The Venue

Your wedding venue sets the entire vibe of your big day, so it’s definitely worth being one of your wedding splurges. It needs to not only represent the theme of your wedding in the best possible way, but it should also cross off all of your non-negotiables from catering capacity to parking.

Keep in mind that investing in a high-quality venue may actually help you save on additional expenses such as venue décor and floral arrangements. By spending more on the right venue, you can potentially reduce the need for expensive modifications and create a beautiful space without breaking the bank.

A wedding planner

If you’ve decided that you need help when it comes to planning your wedding, it’s worth splurging on a wedding planner. Why? Because they will know how to take care of everything. They’ll put in the hours of your wedding that you don’t, and will be able to make magic happen, thanks to all of their industry connections. Plus, a wedding planner is an expert when it comes to putting out fires and alleviating any stress, like difficult family members, and that is something you can’t put a price on.

The caterer

Let’s be honest — besides watching you tie the knot, your guests are most excited about the food and drink at your reception. Like it or not, after your wedding dress, catering is the second thing people will remember the most. So you definitely don’t want to skimp out on what you’re serving your guests. The food should stick to your vision, whether it’s a sit-down or buffet, and, of course, be delicious. Catering will eat up a large chunk of your wedding budget, but, considering how much everyone loves good food, it’s worth it.

Your wedding dress and attire

This is the day of all days when you want to dress to impress. Your wedding dress is something you’ll always remember and you want it to be everything you’ve ever dreamed of. The same goes for the groom’s attire. Let’s not forget that most of the photos will be of the two of you, so it’s totally worth having one of your wedding splurges be on clothing that you not only love on your special day but for many years to come. Getting something that makes you feel like royalty, and that’s tailored to fit your body like a glove, is worth the investment.
