I know it’s hard because you want everyhting to be so pretty and I”m sure you have a  lovely vision… but guests really don’t notice the decor. I know so many friend who regret spending a lot on decor when it’s just not necessary. I would invest in dramatic centerpieces if your venue is plain and cut the decor. Think of what you could spend $10,500 on!!!!

Yikes thats a lot of money! I would try making them myself personally, or looking on etsy.com. You could always sell them afterwards but I doubt you will find anyone willing to pay anything close to that. Its still kind of early too, I had a centerpiece idea in mind for about a year and about 6 months before the wedding I went with something completely different.

What was included and what are you hoping to get? I would really focus on things that are high-impact vs. including everything just because a vendor said so…

@lealorali:  I had a similar experience, not $10K but proportionally, it was the same! I ended up taking out A LOT of what I was hoping to have and as my FI pointed out, the venue will be stunning enough without the need for a ton of decorations.

I got a lot of decor quotes in that range too! We are getting married in a tent and I really want chandeliers, fabric swags, and uplighting – I was absolutely shocked when we recieved our first quote….I guess hanging things and electrical work is expensive, but still it’s pretty ridiculous.  We’ve decided to cut WAY down on our flower budget and invest more on making an impact in the tent  with decor- I think people notice that more than flowers.  The lowest quote we’ve found is around $6k…pretty frustrating….

I’d laugh at them.  Hard.

 

Is this for decor and installation?  Or just for decor?  If it’s for decor and installation, do you have some friends that could help decorate the venue to reduce the installation fees?  If it’s for just the pieces, could you shop around for all of the other things and just rent the chandeliers from that company, if they’re not available from anyone else?
