This past weekend, the Brooklyn venue ReBar closed its doors unexpectedly, leaving many NYC brides stranded without a clue how to move forward. Along with dozens of other wedding vendors, Masterpiece Caterers has opened its doors and to help make sure these stressed brides make their dream wedding come true. It made us think, what is a bride to do when planning a last-minute wedding?
Here the experienced wedding planners from Masterpiece Caterers give you the best tips to maximize your budget when you have a short wedding planning timeline:
- Book a
venue that has décor and design already built in. When a venue has a
signature look, you can reduce your decoration budget. Places like
downtown’s India House are the perfect wedding venue that has a lot of built-in
décor. The Hanover Room is a top location for weddings. Its signature red color
exemplifies a romantic and warm ambiance for your wedding. This downtown
wedding venue has space to house weddings up to 200 guests and has 11 private
event spaces all with lush décor and classical architecture.
- The less you need to coordinate, the smaller the headache- If the thought of figuring out how to get rentals delivered, setup and shipped back sounds intimidating to you, you’re not alone. A bride’s wedding day should be stress-free. Using in-house linens and furniture doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on sophistication or design. Finding a great wedding venue that has good quality furniture and linens means that you don’t have to rent chairs, covers, linens, decreasing your overall cost. Using elegant in-house linens and chairs like this Parisian-style wedding from downtown NY’s India House means that you can have a worry-free day. This beautiful downtown ballroom even features complimentary LED lighting with customized colors to highlight the room height and theme.
- Find venues that have great partnerships and discounts with vendors- When looking at a venue, ask who their preferred vendors are and if they offer discounts. Booking a preferred vendor can be very beneficial to your price when booked together. An exclusive in-house caterer like Masterpiece Caterers at India House will handle all the food and beverage details of your wedding day, allowing you to have a stress-free wedding. Having an experienced photographer who is familiar with the venue makes a huge difference to both your sanity as well as the end product. They’ll know the best and most interesting angles to catch the moments that you want to remember forever. You can also look at past albums to give them an idea of your favorite photos and locations. This unique angle through the Marine Ballroom’s window focuses on the romantic elements of the bride’s dress during the ceremony.
