Christina1015:  So many things: table linens, transport to-from the venue, soft drinks? crazy prices… venue fees (caterer kickback? who knows…), veils! jeweled waist bands!

Things I didn’t think about were the smaller things.. stamps, ink, paper to make the invites, we used command hooks to hang the ceiling decor, ect. All of it adds up!

Christina1015:  Don’t need a freezer. My bartender is ordering the ice for me (I think its $200) and didn’t say anyting about needing a freezer. I think it keeps itself cold kinda? And melts slowly? He seems confident with this type of wedding/venue.

Hidden costs: Rentals (so many tings need to be rented not limited to tables chairs plates stuff for the caterers like sternos), Bathroom rentals (porta potties), Lighting, Shuttles (if we do them Fiance says we must).
