Meals Throughout the Day
Preparing dinner (or whenever the main meal is) will be the main thing on your mind. That makes it easy to forget about food you'd eat through the day, including your own dinner! You could grab fast food, but even that cuts into your budget. Since weddings are an all day thing, you may need to buy breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
You have a schedule set for 125 guests—no more, no less. That’s probably a bad idea. If everyone attends, you may still have an unexpected guest here or there. Maybe someone couldn’t find a babysitter or a guest brought a last minute date. Prepare for the unexpected and have enough food and welcome gifts for a few extra guests.
Of course, flowers are included in the budget, but what about everything else? Candles, doilies, and all the extra décor can add up quickly. That can be a major problem if you didn't expect to pay $60 for placemats. Have more funds on hand for the beautiful fall pumpkins you totally forgot to budget for.
After you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on vendors, the last thing you want to do is tip on top of that, but it’s considered impolite not to do so. If you aren’t sure about gratuity, here is a complete guide on how to tip wedding vendors by Bridal Guide.
