Why Almost All Brides Spend Too Much When They Don't Even Have To... :(
Weddings are classified as "service industry". Because it is, wedding items have much higher markups compared to non-wedding items because they are service intensive.
I can never buy a $2000 laptop computer at $500, but I can buy a $1000 wedding dress at $100.
For example... when you enter a bridal shop to look for a wedding dress, you will get help from a professional. They will help you select right sizes, give you recommendations, tell you that any dress you seem to like looks fabulous on you, and then up sell you into tiaras, veils, accessories, and even shoes. A retail wedding shop must charge a very high markup to survive the cost of doing business.
And just go to any bridal shop. You will find that the products are more expensive than what you normally see in other stores. It's not that the product is better or any different than what you see in other places, but it's the "hidden" service fee that makes the wedding product more expensive.
If you can avoid the hidden service and find a way to get your wedding product as close to its original source, you can easily save tons of money... as much as 50%-80%.
One of my secrets will teach you exactly that. How to buy a wedding product directly from the manufacturer or at a wholesale price.
That's Not All. Almost All Brides Pay Too Much Without Even Knowing It...They are Unsuspecting Victims of the Wedding Vendors
Here's another reason why people spend way too much than they should: Anything with "wedding" is more expensive.
This is a proven fact! Tests show that almost all vendors will provide higher quotes for products or services for a wedding than for any other event. Renting a reception halls, limousines, catering, dresses, flowers, all of it. They all overcharge anything involved with a wedding.
Did you know that $15,000-$20,000 is the average wedding budget? Yet the actual cost comes out to be $27,852. Then why would a bride knowingly go that far over budget? Why do we end up spending more than we expect?
Because wedding vendors are experienced sales people! The name of the game is up sell. Not only do they charge high markups, but they'll do everything in their power to get every single penny possible from you. And they will make you THINK that you got a great deal out on them. Ahh, charm and technique goes a long way!
Few Common Tricks Wedding Vendors Use To Take Extra Money From You...
There are more hidden fees than you can imagine. Cake cutting fees, corkage fees, try on fees, you name it.
They make you put down a deposit without any contract so that later they can charge you more money.
They make you buy NOW by using the old sales trick, the "take away". The story is another bride is expected back to place their deposit on whatever it is you want, or the price is about to go up, or you're looking at a model that is not going to be produced anymore....any number of stories.
Many hotels buy food in bulk to save money and serve you frozen foods, or cook in advance and freeze the food. Frozen food never tastes as good.
Remove fabric tags from a wedding dress, offering it as a luxurious fabric rather than a cheaper fabric, transforming a very nice $600 dress into a $2000 dress.
Y You didn't get it in writing. Just before your wedding, you discover that you've been moved to a smaller room for the same price and there's nothing you can do about it.
You didn't check out references and have an audition. The wedding planner has booked a yucky band because she gets a 10% commission.
Unique boutiques and wedding salons make up high dollar gowns who are then shown to you at a "sale price".
Surprised? That's not even half of it. These scams and more can cost you thousands of dollars, unless you let me show you how to avoid them!
If you haven't planned a wedding before, then you probably are not aware of what to ask for, how to get a good price, and how to avoid scams.
It is sooo common. They will have their way 98% of the time.
No wonder the average wedding cost is $27,852 and most brides exceed their budget!
Not to worry! I'm going to teach to where the scams are, how to recognize them, and avoid have them happen to you! You're very own Fairy Godmother is here! Read on... I will tell you how.
My arm was twisted! I had to let you in on the amazing secrets that I taught brides to use...after all, you don't all live where I do!
Look, after seeing the savings results and lovely outcome of my own Las Vegas wedding, my friend Tif came to me in a panic. She had a limited budget and only 2 weeks to put together her very special day. Her fiancée was in the military and had only one shot at getting leave for their wedding. Her back was against the wall. So I sent her and her mom the rough draft of the first half of my book, and walked her through the rest.
She was amazed at how the checklists got her organized, how much money she saved, (she was on a very tight budget of $1000.00), and how beautiful the wedding and reception turned out to be.
A week later, after her new husband had returned to base to make arrangements for her to join him in their new base housing, she called and said "you're crazy if you don't finish this book at get it out there. There's no way I could have pulled this off without you, and I'm sure I'm not the only bride that's overwhelmed by how to do it and how much it can cost. We need you!"
I just laughed and thanked her for the complement.
I wasn't laughing when one of the guests from her wedding called and said "I saw what you did for Tif and I want to be able to do the same thing for my daughter. Where did you get those centerpieces on the dinner tables?"
Well, I know, and you know, the first question is never the last, and I own several businesses already and have a counseling practice to boot. As much as I love brides, I just don't have the time to do wedding planning.
So the logical thing to do was finish the book, lay it out step by step, so that brides could do it without my "in person" assistance. It was simply the only way to manage the situation! I wanted brides to have their own success stories to share with their families and friends. Without having to resort to tranquilizers!
So I began to reorganize and complete my ideas into a step-by-step wedding planning guide that could be used by brides worldwide. I asked many brides what their major concerns were and also added that to my wedding planning guide.

"What would I have done, after a surprise proposal, living in a small town that I wasn't even from!"
I've protected our names because of my husband's sports celebrity status, but this is a real story from the '70's when I knew Cheryl in a small, minor league town where my husband was playing baseball.
You know, in the '70's, we didn't have the internet to research things like we do now. But thank heavens, we had Cheryl!
Cheryl has sent me her book to take a look at and I can tell you that she did indeed begin this work from her hand typed lists many years ago. She was the "go to" girl we all depended upon when we needed to get a first class function put together, as well as my wedding and others.
Because she had already done all of the leg work in our local area, as well as things she had shipped in from others, we could depend upon elegance and fun at our wedding and reception.
She began with a surprise proposal during the 7th inning stretch from my sweetie, done at home plate by microphone, me in the stands, with music by the park organist. It was the biggest surprise of my life!
She walked us through the wedding planning process and our day came off without a hitch!
Thanks again Cheryl! Guess it worked. We've been married since the late '70's!
