Wedding Budget Savings

You’re engaged! Congratulations! Already worried about the B-word ? B is for BRIDE, right?  But until that day comes, for most couples, B is for BUDGET. Here are some ideas for starting yours off right.

You're Engaged!

After you have considered your date carefully (read more about selecting your wedding date HERE), your next thought might be “I don’t want to spend more than $X”. If you want it all and can afford it all—awesome! Go for it! Otherwise, WAIT! Set your wedding day priorities first. Reception venue selection will be covered in the next four parts of this series—that’s a biggie. After  your reception venue, rank your other purchases like Ovation Images photography, DJ or Band, Videographer, food, cake, liquor, photo booth, ice sculptures, and…..your dress (why the dress is last on OUR list is explained in Part 10!).  Re-rank your list until you have it in the priority order that fits your vision of your wedding day. Then comes the hard part—keeping your priorities straight as the amount left in the budget dwindles!

At one of Ovation Images weddings last year, the bride’s family was from the old country and the groom’s family were just Pittsburgh folks. The bride wanted an exciting and fun reception for both families. So one of her top priorities was TWO bands—one to play classic old country ethnic songs in the best tradition, and another to rock the house. Her other priorities?  To her the dress was not as important as her families, and she got a relatively inexpensive gown from David’s.  She looked gorgeous.  THAT is the bride knowing her priorities and sticking to them. And her wedding day? To die for! That is what prioritization can do for you. You can see our video of how her wedding turned out here: http://ovationimages.com/2011/05/16/engagement-and-wedding-at-fox-chapel-golf-club/.

Serious about your budget? The two absolute best ways to save wedding dollars and still have the wedding of your dreams are 1) schedule your wedding on a day other than a Saturday and/or during the local wedding “off-season” (that would be winter in the northeastern USA), and 2) lovingly but firmly limit the total number of guests. No one said it would be easy. But it can be done!

Amazing Candid Wedding Photos

Are they luck or skill? — those fabulous wedding candids that draw you back into the moment heart and soul. You know the ones–they are the images that are so perfect they must have been posed by the photographer. Nope. Not at an Ovation Images wedding. There is so much skill behind truly amazing wedding candids that it is tempting to simplify and just call it “a lucky shot.” Until you see hundreds of them. Nobody has that much luck.

The two Ovation Images photographers who are with you on your wedding day have worked together on hundreds of weddings. They bring a package of photography experience and wedding teamwork to your wedding that is unmatched by any other studio. The result?

The Best Date For Your Wedding–It’s all about The Date!

Pittsburgh Engagement Photographer

You’re engaged! Probably one of the first things you will think about when you get engaged is when? When will we get married? Stop right now and take a breath!  The date you select drives every other decision you will make and choice you will have about your wedding—so choose wisely! The availability of your church and reception venue are the most obvious date issues. But what about the B word—Budget?  The date you choose will make a big difference to the final cost of your wedding.

Every wedding vendor we know has different rates for the same service depending on the date. Non-Saturday weddings cost less. Winter weddings cost less. This can be a huge factor for one big part of your wedding cost—your reception venue. Ask them about these discounts. Then explore the calendar carefully for opportunities. For example, in some years, at some venues, Memorial Day weekend is still considered “winter” and you may find exceptional deals available to you on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. Yes, look to your heart to set your date! But don’t forget the B-word!

Seeing each other before our wedding ceremony?

Seeing each other before your wedding is such a personal decision! Tradition says no (so does Mom!!). But having a “First Look” where you see each other before your walk down the aisle has one huge advantage–it is romantic and intimate. This is as opposed to a walk down the aisle which is very public and gives you not one second of private “together” time to get into each other and connect. Your walk down the aisle is “live and on stage!” Your First Look is intimate and romantic. You pick.

One more thought….your First Look may be the only private time you have with your lover all day! Without a First Look, most wedding days have no time for intimate moments between just the two of you. There is just too much else going on during a very hectic and crowded day. A lot of couples consider those private moments together to be a big highlight of their wedding day.

Here are some Ovation Images pictures from Brittany and Andrew’s First Look in front of Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh…

Carly and John at St. Mary Of The Mount & Sheraton Station Square

Carly and John had a very special day with family and friends for their wedding at St., Mary Of The Mount (Mount Washington, Pittsburgh) and the Sheraton Station Square. The bride was stunning, and the bridal party was….a partee! We stopped in between the ceremony and reception at the newly redone overlook in front of Monterey Bay on Grandview Avenue. Since night falls early at this time of year, we also had time for some very intimate moments with the lights of Pittsburgh reflecting on the river in the background. Pittsburgh’s most-trusted and most-experienced wedding photographers at Ovation Images were on hand…
