Dads, it’s the article you’ve been waiting for! Your little girl is getting married and, as tradition dictates, she’ll be looking to you at the reception to give a Father of the Bride speech worthy of your love for her and which will contribute to the overall success of her big day. So, no pressure.
Weddings are expensive. I think this is something that we are all aware of. However, even if you try to budget as much as possible, there are still some costs that are unavoidable. For example, you have to give notice, hire a registrar, and buy a marriage certificate.
We know the story: ceremony, breakfast, evening reception, rinse and repeat. For couples looking to do something a little different, this structure can be somewhat restrictive. However, it doesn’t have to be like that. If you’re not too fussed about hosting a wedding reception or have absolutely no intention of going through the stress of planning one, you’ve come to the right place.
This is a question that many brides face: should I get married in a church or have a civil ceremony? While the answer may be easy for some, for others it will take a lot more consideration.
So you’ve set your budget and you’re already bracing yourself for how much this is going to cost, but some of the most important things to accommodate for in your budgeting are those sneaky costs that go under the radar.
