While I myself can completely understand that weddings and events are expensive and everyone has a budget, I want you to keep a few things in mind when paying attention to "costs" when seeking any vendors to hire for your events.
I think looking at numbers is of course important but even more so the value of what you get for those costs.
Value is what you are getting in your entire experience, and that experience isn't able to be truly understood by just looking at a number.
That is why it is so important to understand what their experience that they will provide for you is valued at, what does it include?
What do you get? Do you love their work? Are they providing some extras that curate a bigger experience than others and that is factored in? Are you getting things in their value that help not having to hire another vendor to do a small part of it instead? What is their experience, education and reputation? What is the quality of their work, their supplies that they use? Look at their reviews, photos, where they've worked and with whom.
These are really important questions to ask yourself and your vendors to get an all encompassing full picture of what to expect.
There are vendors in every budget no matter what the category, but it is important to still pick the right vendors to give the experience you want and expect. Decide what vendors are most important and most valued for you and your experience.
