Yikes. That’s so frustrating.

We were surprised by all of the extra fees that came with my dress alterations, e.g. $75 just to press the dress, and a $22 fitting fee…just to put the dress on for my fitting. Dang.

my caterer tried to throw in extra charges. We went in for a tasting and they presented us with a “wedding package” deal but everything they had us try was an up charge. We threw a fit and decided to find a different caterer and they got rid of all of the extra fee’s. In hind sight, I wish we would have gotten another caterer because I was not happy with them (customer service or food).

@TheJeanses2012: No kidding!

Do you have any other options, like renting from a company who will let a few good friends set up the chairs for you?

I had to pay a handling fee for my rentals. The venue basically served as the middle man and did all the work for me, so my $7.50 chivari’s ended up being $9 a piece and my chargers went from 1.25 to $2.  Honestly, it was worth it, but still when I saw it I was like WHAT!?!?!

@TheJeanses2012: Grr. That’s annoying. But less annoying than paying several hundred extra dollars, I guess. Can the chairs just hang out in the vehicles of the people who are picking the chairs up?

This is just a suggestion and it may be really stupid but I’ve seen pics of people having their guests sit on large blankets (like a picnic). This may be a cheaper option…or it may not be an option at all. Just thought I would throw that out there
