-- Couples who say "I Do" in one of the event spaces managed by Roger Igo Bell Tower
owner, know what to expect. Igo and his staff believe in transparency and honesty to calm the nerves of each couple and help them understand exactly what they are paying for. With the growing costs associated with weddings, this transparency is what couples need.
A recent article published by Market Watch revealed secrets the wedding industry keeps from couples. Roger Igo, Bell Tower owner, is glad to see these secrets exposed because he believes that venues and vendors that are honest with couples will serve them better and find more success later on.
Private businesses are not required to inform the public if an event space closure is imminent. This also applies to the wedding industry. Brides and grooms should ask questions about a company's health and only use businesses they trust. Purchasing a wedding insurance plan, while costly, can save a couple from headache and financial woes if a vendor they choose suddenly closes its doors.
Wedding suppliers love inspiration boards like Pinterest. Even if a bride plans to make the decorations themselves, the raw materials often come from craft stores and these businesses thrive on brides with unrealistic expectations. Wedding venues can, and should, help couples manage their expectations and use inspiration boards for some ideas without going overboard.
With couples obsessing over small details and trying to recreate images they see online, venues are responding with surcharges and markups. Couples should manage their expectations ahead of time and try to only contact the venue and suppliers with urgent needs. These fees are designed to keep couples from wasting time over frivolous details.
Sometimes venues only allow "approved vendors" and outside relationships cost couples more. Brides and grooms should carefully negotiate with event halls or select spaces that allow any caterers, florists and entertainment. If venues have preferred vendors, ask why and use that information as research into a final decision.
Awards mean very little when it comes to selecting venues and vendors. While it is important to read reviews and look for companies and locations that win awards on bridal sites, these awards are often fake and gimmicky. Looking at user reviews carefully can help ensure a couple gets the best vendor for their money.
Finally, small details break budgets. There is an extent to which brides should sweat the small details. Examine closely the prices of everything desired for decorations and other amenities. Some of the expensive details are gimmicks of an industry piggybacking off of the online wedding inspiration sites. Decide what matters and then worry about pricing it.
Weddings are exciting events. As two families are joined in the marriage of the happy couple, Roger Igo, Bell Tower owner, encourages the bride and groom to work carefully with vendors to ensure their big day is a successful, memorable one.
