5 Hidden Costs That Could Blow Your Wedding Budget.   

Those hidden costs always creep up on you when your planning your wedding budget.  Just when you thought you’ve figured everything out, here comes more hidden costs…  What to do?

Here are the top hidden costs that most couples overlook:


Hidden costs like this need to be IN the budget.  We’ve featured a comprehensive blog post on why this is so very important.  Websites like WedSafe.com offer wedding insurance.  Trust us.  Have yourself some peace of mind and get a quote.


You’ll need a lot of stamps for your save-the-date’s.  Then, theres the invitations, and finally the thank-you’s. Postage rates could add up for each piece of stationary. The hidden costs is to keeping your paper products simple and not bulky.

Hotel Room for the Night Before… and Night After!

Staying in a hotel room the night before your wedding day is a great idea. It may just help with stress your levels. You can wake up, have a cup of coffee, and enjoy getting ready in your own room.  Not going on your honeymoon right after the reception?  Then relax for a day (or two) in a hotel room to wind-down.

Unexpected Guests

Rude! Unexpected guests are a common thing. Your guests may bring an additional person (boyfriend or girlfriend) when they weren’t invited.  Also, guests who didn’t RSVP at all may decide to show up. Or, guests who RSVP’d ‘NO’ may suddenly have decided to attend.  The only thing you can do is include a few extra plates in your budget.

Forgotten Items

I’ve done it…. and I do this EVER weekend! As prepared as you may be, anything can happen. The Groom could forget his shoes, a Groomsman may need black socks, or a Bridesmaid may show up in heels that don’t match the rest. You’ll thank yourself later for being prepared for hidden costs like these.

These are just a few of the hidden costs you could run into.  It’s our experience that if you plan ahead these unexpected costs will become part of your budget.
