Planning a wedding is stressful enough even if you take any kind of scamming possibility out of the entire story. It is extremely important, however, to make sure you do pay attention to the way you plan your wedding. Scams can be financially and emotionally draining – so keeping an eye out for them is the best thing to do.
What are some of the most common wedding scams and how to avoid them? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
- The Disappearing Planner Act. Hiring a wedding planner is a crucial decision to make when you start planning the Big Day. Yet, you have to make sure you hire someone who comes with great recommendations – otherwise, you might end up with your money spent and very little help received. The last thing you want is a planner that only replies to your emails every now and again and doesn’t give you’re your money’s worth.
- The Catch Me If You Can Vendor. No matter what vendor you are looking for, always make sure you hire trustworthy, reliable people. You really don’t want to wake up on your wedding day without flowers, photos, or, worse, food. Read reviews, talk to people who have worked with a vendor before, and always settle for the ones that are genuine every step of the way. In general, if it sounds too good to be true (excellent portfolio, very low prices under the price of the market), it’s probably, well, not true. Keep your eyes open and follow your gut instinct – it’s better to spend an extra dollar and know for sure you will get the help you need on your wedding day!
- The Not So Precious Gemstone. Regardless of whether it is your engagement ring, wedding ring, or simply a pair of earrings you want to buy for your wedding day, make sure you only buy from reputable jewelers. You might feel you’re saving money by buying from an obscure site, but in reality, it’s very likely that you’re paying way too much for something that’s not even close to genuine gold or diamond.
