Five benefits of an all-inclusive wedding.

The growing trend for weddings is going all-inclusive.  But is this trend right for you?  You have a unique style and a vision for your big day and don’t want that to be compromised by a generic template, but you are already overwhelmed with the amount of planning and preparation.  Here are five benefits of an all-inclusive wedding that will give you peace of mind during a stressful time.

#1 Cost-effective

While an all-inclusive wedding might not seem cost-effective because you pay a large sum of money at once, you will be pleasantly surprised at the savings along the way.

All-inclusive venues have preferred vendors such as caterers, DJs, photographers, etc., who cut prices in order to get consistent business.  It’s a win-win for the vendors and clients.  They also have decor such as centerpieces and table numbers that you would normally have to spend a good chunk of your budget on only to never use again.  Kelley Mestdagh describes her experience at an all-inclusive in Westminster, Colorado (Church Ranch Event Center) as “life-saving.”  She said, “they had everything we needed so that we did not have to spend a fortune on small things such as an easel for our seating chart or yard games during cocktail hour.  They even had beautiful centerpieces, table numbers, and signage for the ceremony site.”  You not only save big with vendor packages, but you will save on small items that will be at the venue for you to use.

#2 Time-effective

What is more valuable than money?  Your time!  What will you save time on?

  • Researching different vendors including caterers, DJs, florists, bakers, photographers, and officiants. An all-inclusive venue will either have in-house vendors or preferred vendors which would give you some choice. 
  • Meeting with each vendor separately and paying each vendor separately.
  • Shopping for decorations.
  • Calling a rental company to order tables, chairs, linens, and china.
  • Delegating family members to do set up and tear down.
  • Building your own planning spreadsheet to make sure things are done on time. At an all inclusive venue, a planning team will plan everything for you and send you details along the way.

#3 Complete Planning

This one ties in with being time-effective.  When you choose an all-inclusive, you will be gifted the experience of a professional wedding planner and day-of coordinator who know the ins and outs of weddings and will not let you miss a detail.  You will show up to your planning meeting and choose everything from seating arrangements to linen and napkin colors and you will be amazed that all you have to do is select what you like and talk to the planner about your vision and voila! It is almost magical how they can pull together a combination of pinterest boards and your imagination and create a day that you have been dreaming of.

#4 Trusted and Proven Vendors

As a wedding planner, I have seen my share of disaster vendors such as a catering company walking off the job in the middle of dinner and a DJ who did not play the correct song nor speak into the microphone loud enough for people to understand him.  At all-inclusives they have tried and proven vendors who are true professionals.  They have developed relationships with the venues they work at and are comfortable with the work and the space.  You will not have to worry about whether you hired a reliable photographer or a good catering company because they have already proven their worth time and again.

#5 Different Packages to suit your Style

At an all-inclusive, they will have different packages to fit your budget and style.  They typically have the latest trends in decor, themes, bar packages, and much more. A venue can be turned from elegant to rustic chic without you having to worry about how to pull it all together.  With money saved on items such as centerpieces, you may even want to add other items to make your wedding more unique.  One bride was able to  go all out on a Disney theme because she saved money by using the venue’s centerpieces, matching table numbers and candles with votives.  When you don’t have to spend your money on essential pieces for your wedding, you can accessorize with more fun items if your budget allows.

If you’re considering an all-inclusive wedding, take a tour and see what there is to offer and how easy it is to plan your wedding.  You will be pleasantly surprised at how you can save money and time and be assured to get your desired style with trusted vendors and planners.  With a team planning your wedding, you will be sure to enjoy your day.
