Warning Of Wedding Scams Going Around

Jun 16, 2008
A recent study showed that the average cost of putting together a successful wedding is in the region of $20,000, this is big money in any counts, and is a cause for concern that you don't get scammed when working to make a wedding a success.

It is not that this scamming can happen with people who want to take your money and run, never to show the services you wanted, but it can happen in an indirect way. For example going to buy a wedding dress only to have the person selling them tell you that is the last one or try to find ways to increase the price. This especially happens if they know you have a high budget level.

This is more of a concern with wedding planners, as a tactic some may use is that they will help you with the budget which turns out high, and then get everything done with people they know, this profiting though most of the necessities. Again in most cases this won't happen to this high degree, but it can happen, so it is important to remember when hiring wedding planners.

This can be circumvented by shopping at places you know or have had good recommendations from. Another option is to look how long the business has been in business. If the wedding singer is someone new, and has no references, this can be a cause for concern, unless you know them.

Buying wedding supplies online is also a way where you can protect yourself. It is a simple process of shopping around and looking at various prices. Those that offer similar products or services at very low cost or very high are where you should be cautious of. Again look at how long they have been in business and if in doubt call and ask or shop somewhere else.

Creating a successful wedding day takes a lot of different components to get the wedding day to be a success. Searching around becomes key, and can be a fun process. Most places will give great free advice, so it can be useful to shop with those that want to do everything to help you create a successful wedding.

Though these scams are few and far between, it is a point to consider. Could a wedding that cost $20,000 really have been done for $15,000? Could a wedding cake turn out how you want it? It possibly could, and on that note, it is important to shop around before deciding to go with one option.
