There are often many small things included in the process of wedding and different celebrations related to it, couples often go over-budget. Thus, to help you plan better and avoid unexpected wedding expenses, we have mentioned major unexpected wedding costs in this blog post. This applies to local and destination wedding, both. Of course, in both types of wedding, major expenses might be different, but these small unforeseen and unexpected expenses are the same.
1. Clothes and accessories
You might say we have already counted the cost of wedding gown or tuxedo, but let me tell you I am not talking about that. Often, some alterations need to be made in the wedding dresses because as the wedding day comes closer, it may need some final alteration. Along with wedding dress, you also need to count the costs of other clothes such as undergarments, formals, handkerchief, etc. Moreover, some accessories such as hairpins, hair gel or spray, tie pin, etc. will be required on the wedding day to get ready.
2. Marriage certificate
Whether you decide to get married in Denmark or similar wedding locations or if you want to join knots in your own city, you have to invest additional for a marriage certificate. Some wedding planners include the cost of a marriage license in the total cost, but still, it is better to keep this possible expense in mind and get clarity from your wedding planner.
3. Taxes and service fees
This is often overlooked by couples and it can make a hole in your pocket if you do not consider it. Taxes are applied everywhere from flight tickets to the hotel stay, restaurant food, etc. Often, when couples receive quotations from vendors or their wedding planner, they consider that as the final cost. However, you must keep in mind that there can be an additional service fee or taxes and you should be aware of it.
3. Post-wedding and pre-wedding parties
No matter how you want to save money on these parties, but you just cannot get rid of it. Your friends will ask bachelor’s party and after the wedding, you will be demanded to give a post-wedding party to close family members and friends. Thus, even if you decide to get married in Denmark or any other destination location, you must consider this fact. You have to keep some budget for these parties.
No matter how hard you try to wind up things, but it is more likely that some celebrations take longer than the thought of. Of course, a civil marriage ceremony in Denmark or other wedding locations does not take too long, but other celebrations or ceremonies may take longer. In this case, costs related to music, beverages, and staff can be extended. Thus, consider these expenses as well.
