We know the decor, the tiny trees for favors and the giant donut wall are all super enticing but we’re here to keep your priorities in check ✅
here are the top 5 wedding items you should splurge on for your big day!
IT IS A PARTY AFTER ALL
band or DJ make sure you are picking the BEST entertainment to keep your party going! I’ve seen so many parties flop because of a bad entertainer. *PRO TIP* let the entertainer do what they do best, don’t put together a playlist & demand they stick to it!
1000 WORDS & A LIFETIME
your wedding day will be both the best day of your life & a whirlwind! When it’s all done & you’re happily married, the flowers will be gone, the food will be eaten and the dress will be stored or sold. Perfect photos are a must-have to look back on and share with families and future generations to come. Make sure you pick a photographer with a style that is sure to last a long time. *ahem* 👉🏼East Emerald Photography 👍🏼
hair & makeup
NOT THE TIME FOR DIY
Wedding photography is much higher quality than your average photo, you need a gorgeous face and hair-do that will last the entire day. Unless you are a makeup artist or hair stylist yourself even then I would hire someone! You want to be pampered on your wedding day. Try out a few artists and hair stylists to see who will capture YOU and make you feel the best version of you.
LIKE IT? LOVE IT? GET IT!
if the venue you want is a touch out of budget, there are LOADS of things to save on for your wedding day. Go for it! The venue will set the tone for the day and also serve as the backdrop for those long lasting photos we were talking about.
THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP YOUR SH*T TOGETHER
the value of a wedding planner is priceless! They will keep your budget in check, your decor on point and your timeline running smoothly! So not only do they keep your actual wedding sh*t together, they keep your mental sh*t intact too!
