In Response to Pricing questions & vendor suggestions
I bought paper and envelopes and made my own. Stationary costs were around $100 and it cost $5 to print them at Kinko's. Prices for invitations can be as low or as high as you want, though. Florist - bouquets, etc. but not necessarily centerpieces
I used Lyndsey Loring (lyndseyloringdesign.com) and paid under $400. My bouquet was $75 and my BM's were $50. The $400 included guys' bouts, bouqets, mom's corsages, delivery & set up, some scattered flowers for the placecard table. JP
- I used John Scuto (who was awesome) and paid $120 (rehearsal included)Hair/make up
-I also used Brea Cherne for makeup (I love her) and Rachel Aiden for hair (www.fourwaterstreet.com
). They were both great. I paid around $250 for a trial, my hair, and my BM's hair, and for Rachel to travel to us. I liked her a lot and I just booked an apt at her salon for a haircut. Suit rentals
- not tux, is this even possible?
You can definitely just rent suits and not tuxes. Try Men's Warehouse. Our tux rental was $140 and my husband got his for free.unexpected costs
It depends on *extras* that you want to do. After a while, I realized it would be a good idea to have a shuttle from the hotel to the venue because 98% of our guests were from out of town. That was about $400. You never know how much alterations for your dress will cost until after you buy it. Look into fees associated with vendors and make sure the numbers they give you are final, tax/delivery/etc included.
ETA: I got married in southern NH and all of these vendors are based out of that area.
