Sometimes, last-minute planning can work in your favor. The closer your date, the more bargaining power you have. Since most people book their wedding venues at least six months in advance, calling for open dates two months prior to your desired time can save you up to 25 percent. And, Friday and Sunday weddings should cost about 30 percent less than Saturday weddings.
Soaking in a pool or hot tub. Losing your ring here isn’t as big of an issue compared with the open sea (filters can be checked and the pool can be drained), but it’s the chemicals, like chlorine, that do the damage. After time, they can seriously discolor the metals.
Digital technology changes so quickly. I received my wedding photos on a CD only five years ago, and now most computers don’t even come with disc drives! Prints will never be obsolete technology. 20 years from now, you’ll be able to sit down with your family and show them your wedding album. You can’t guarantee the same for digital files.
