Expectations VS. Reality

Invitations, cincinnati, budget, romantic, vintage, rustic, invites

Setting your expectations with your budget is always a huge obstacle when it comes to planning your big day.  Pinterest shows you beautiful table settings, romantic flowers, laser cut invitations and gorgeous dresses.  What Pinterest doesn't do is prepare you for the cost associated with those things. I see it time and time again couples fall in love with something very specific only to find it's not in their wedding budget.  If you’re going to use Pinterest, which we love and recommend for inspiration, know that just because it's pictured doesn't mean it's something you can get.  Always keep in mind your budget.  For example when you’re looking at your invitations, and you saw a vintage laser cut pocket with gold foil accents don't expect a $300.00 cost associated with it. Then you quote it and realize that foil stamping and laser cut pockets will take your set cost up a considerable amount of your budget. Foil stamping and laser cut are a more expensive processes.  The vision you had is lost.  DO NOT get discouraged talk to your vendors, make the aware of your budget going in so they can show you things you can afford. Here at DHP we can show you other options to get you in similar sets still as stunning as what you see on Pinterest but within your budget!
