It’s no secret that weddings expensive. Between the venue, catering, DJ, flowers, tux and dress, the bill can be much higher than you expected. Here are a few of the most common hidden wedding costs and what you can do to prevent yourself from going way over budget


Gown and suit alterations can end up costing you an arm and a leg, especially if your dress or tux is made out of special material or if the requested alterations are intricate. Some alterations will be necessary if you want your garment to flatter you as much as possible, but try to find a dress or suit that requires only minimal changes to keep your costs down. Have a crafty friend or loved one help you to do the alternations yourself. This can save you money and be a fun and stress-relieving wedding preparation project.

Floral Arrangements

Many engaged couples don’t realize how expensive floral arrangements can be, especially when purchased in large quantities. You may have your heart set on using a particular flower as a motif for your wedding ceremony or reception but make sure they’re in season before you commit. The price of out of season flowers tend to skew on the high side, whereas seasonal flowers or synthetic arrangements both make beautiful and more affordable alternatives.
