Wedding Suppliers: Fill out a sheet listing all your wedding suppliers by type and compare costs.
Have the first column headed 'Supplier Category', the second column for 'Company Name' in each category and the third column for the amount each wedding supplier is quoting you. Obtain quotes from at least two or even three wedding suppliers in each category. Then you can compare costs very easily all on one sheet of paper.
Some categories should not vary too much; wedding photographers, limousine hire etc will tend to be within a set range for a similar product. However wedding florists may vary considerably depending on the quality and choice of display you select. Also caterers will vary considerably depending on the choice of menu.
Though some price comparisons are not going to be on a like for like basis, it is still useful to compare prices between suppliers and doing this will help you stay within budget.
The most expensive part will be your catering. This can be 50% of your entire budget. However the Wedding Deal at the Castle does help reduce the cost.
Even so, if you are offering a wedding breakast with three coursea, and an evening buffet, for 50 guests, you would get up to £57.50 a head at 2014 Special Wedding Package Tariff (including the welcome drinks, the third course option on the wedding breakfast at £5/head, and the £12.50/head evening buffet option).
Decorations at 20 - 30% will be your second major expense. These two can come ahead of the Wedding Gown.
Ask your chosen reception venue about any wedding suppliers they use regularly or recommend. Click here for wedding suppliers that have provided services for previous couples at the castle. Also ask any of your friends and relatives who have recently got married for their recommendations. You can also search under each category of wedding supplier.
