6 Benefits of All-Inclusive Wedding Packagesby Miriam Portal
If you’ve just gotten engaged, you’re probably already scoping out venues for the perfect wedding. After all, you need to get that date on the calendar!
But before you make the big decision, have you considered the advantages of a venue with all-inclusive wedding packages? For busy couples, having the convenience of a one-stop-shop can help you juggle the many details of wedding planning while also trying to keep up with your regular life.
Let’s take a look at the six benefits of choosing all-inclusive wedding packages.
1. You can avoid the hassle of researching vendors
Ask anyone who’s recently planned a wedding how much time they spent finding all their vendors – florist, caterer, photographer, DJ, the list goes on. They’ll probably roll their eyes. Too much time!
Even with wedding sites like The Knot and Wedding Wire, you still have to sift through reviews, compare prices, and contact the top contenders. Then you need to meet with them, discuss their quote, and make a decision.
If you’re not a detail-oriented person, this can get overwhelming pretty quickly. With so many choices, it’s hard to decide, especially when you’ve never done it before. For most couples, this is the first big event they’ve ever planned.
By selecting an all-inclusive wedding package, you’ll know that event professionals at the venue have screened all their partners. They know what to look for and will ensure quality.
2. You’ll have a wedding vendor team
Knowing the venue has carefully chosen your vendors will give you peace of mind. But another benefit of all-inclusive wedding packages (often overlooked) is the fact that each vendor is familiar with the venue.
There won’t be any questions about where to unload, where the outlets are, or rules about kitchen use. That’s all been ironed out well before your wedding. They’ve done it many times before. So you can take that off your “things to worry about” list.
Plus, each vendor knows how to coordinate with each other. For example, the caterer and the bartender will deliver a seamless flow of appetizers and drinks. The DJ and photographer will make sure you get those perfect dance floor shots. You’ll have a well-oiled wedding team at your service.
3. You’ll have your own wedding planner
Speaking of a team, every team needs a leader. And that’s exactly what you’ll get with an all-inclusive wedding package – a wedding planner. They’ll make sure everything’s ordered on time, the event space is decorated perfectly, and there’s a back-up plan for every emergency!
You don’t want to be giving instructions to the florist or paying a DJ when you arrive on-site for your reception. This is your time! Leave everything to the Grand Salon Event Coordinator. Dance the night away and then wonder why it went by so fast.
4. You’ll save money from bundling services
Everyone is trying to save money when it comes to wedding planning. And most people think you’ll pay more for the convenience of an all-inclusive package. But that’s not always true.
The venue has significant bargaining power to negotiate favorable rates. In most cases, vendors are happy to offer a better deal through the venue because it’s a steady source of work, a familiar location, and they have a single point of contact.
It’s a win-win-win — for you, the vendor, and the venue!
5. You can customize each package
Another misconception is that you’ll be “locked-in” to a very specific set of services, making it hard to create the wedding you always wanted.
But at Grand Salon, you’ll always be able to create a unique wedding experience. We offer 13 different packages and you can customize each one. Depending on your wedding vision, you can add a variety of upgrades to any of our packages.
Want to add valet service? Need a photo booth? How about a fireworks show at the end of the night? We can do it all! Plus a lot more.
So you don’t have to worry. All-inclusive wedding packages offer plenty of flexibility for you to make it your own.
6. You can focus on the fun parts
And now for the most important benefit – you can enjoy this special time!
Let’s face it – wedding planning can be stressful. But choosing a venue with all-inclusive wedding packages can lift a lot of the burden from your shoulders. You can focus on what matters most to you – whether that’s picking out the dress, finding the perfect invitation, or writing your vows.
We hear it all the time from our clients – we’re so glad we let you take care of the details!
