3 Wedding Musts to Splurge on

The wedding budget is a real thing, we know, and it’s important to stick to that budget. The perfect wedding of your dreams can get pricey. That said, there are tons of ways to cut costs while planning a wedding, but there are a few things worth spending the extra money on.


Lights transform the venue from something simple to something spectacular and magical with colours, patterns, textures, and movements. It can highlight favourite details like the centerpieces, become a main feature or be used to hide less-than-desirable aspects about the venue like dingy flooring. Lights are the unspoken ambiance that set the mood for the entire day.

Yes, you have a dance floor, perhaps a band or a kick ass DJ. But why not add a little something extra? A photo booth, a martini bar, a beer pong/flip cup table, hay ride, an illusionist, arcade games, mosh pit—the options are endless. Show your individuality and treat your guests to an unexpected activity or attraction that is entirely your own. The activity can be something that complements the wedding’s theme or just something silly that makes people laugh. As long as everyone is having fun, you’ve struck gold.

Late Night Snacks

Bringing in the food to the wee hours is a fabulous way of not only taking care of midnight munchies, but also telling your guests that you’re thinking about them. Fun makes people hangry! Food trucks are becoming a big trend and can be hired to arrive at the wedding venue at a specified time in the late evening. Some venues offer a late night option that consists of various snack foods, or a local pizza joint can be called for delivery.
