I am a very realistic person, I realize that the price is low and I cannot expect too much. However, I do have a tight budget and think that for my small simple wedding this might work. The website is super legit, the client portal is top notch, and my team is quick to respond. Thanks for the feedback again.

asking questions up front doesn’t mean that you aren’t being realistic – it shows that you want to understand the exact products and services that will be delivered.
A $4000 budget is low, and the vendor is making a profit on that to boot.
It’s in the bride’s best interest to understand where corners may be cut. She says she has ‘realistic expectations’, and as a customer paying good money she has every right to define what those expectations are.

It’s great that you have realistic expectations – remember that you are still a paying customer and have every right to understand what is being delivered to you in detail.
This is a monetary business transaction for services, and dollar is a dollar – whether $4000 or $20000 is being spent, it’s important to know where it is going. It’s possible to stretch that dollar very far, and it’s in your best interest to ask questions and share with your vendor which pieces are most important to you.

Heeeeell yes, I would go for it. For that price you could supplement the decor with some DIY projects and still be spending significantly less than most. As long as the food is good and the reviews are solid, I would definitely take advantage of this.
You could always reach out to some of the real brides you found on Instagram, as well.
