The Pros and Cons of All Inclusive Wedding Packages | Shopping

Nearlyweds, today I’ve got the inside scoop on one of Just Marry!’s specialties: all inclusive wedding packages! I’m going to cover all the basics…every pro, con, and in between. Whether you’re a laid-back planner or a Type A (like me!), all inclusive wedding packages might be a great option for you. Read on to learn more!

The Pros

  • Convenience

    For some, being able to work with a one-stop shop and get all their planning to-do items checked off their list might be ideal! With an all inclusive wedding package, you can expect things such as your officiant, floral, music, hair and makeup, photography, videography and more to be included. You won’t have to spend time combing through vendors, reviews, websites, etc., knowing your planner has trusted vendors they’ve vetted for you already!

  • Service

    Having all your vendors booked by your planner means less work and pressure for you. They handle all the communication, from contracting with the vendors to confirming their services and timing for the event day. This allows you to have much more free time to work on other aspects of your planning. It’s your special day – feel like royalty and let your planner handle the work!

  • Peace of Mind

    Perhaps you’re like many of our clients and you’re hosting a destination wedding. Not knowing local vendors or who to book can be stressful! Allowing your planner to book the best of the best for you and handle all the details on the big day will give you serious peace of mind!

  • Savings

    Who doesn’t love to save money when planning their wedding? All inclusive wedding packages are typically discounted to encourage booking everything together. By booking an all inclusive wedding package, you may end up with some wiggle room in the budget that you didn’t think you’d have for some fun add-ons. Add on the mimosa bar, cold sparklers, or interactive dessert station that you pinned on Pinterest but never thought you could afford!

The Cons

  • Potential for fewer options

    With all inclusive wedding packages, you may find you are more limited on options. For example, you may have to choose from a list of photographers rather than using any photographer you want. Or perhaps your package includes a rose bouquet and you would rather have lilies. While you might be able to upgrade and customize your package, this is important to note in case you’re required to stay within the package limitations.

  • Less Control

    Some couples like to have their hands in everything when planning. (Again, I am guilty on this one!). Giving up the responsibilities of making payment deadlines, organizing your vendors, and overseeing every detail may be hard for you. If this is the case, it may be time to consider a custom package you build with your planner, or coming up with a “Top Three” list of vendors you’d ideally like to work with.

Wedding planning can be stressful, and an all-inclusive package can be a terrific solution! Everyone plans their own wedding in their own way, and that is totally okay. Weighing the pros and cons when doing any shopping for your wedding is always a good way to make decisions.

Whatever you decide to do when shopping for your wedding, just remember it is YOUR day. You will want to hand off the big responsibilities to someone you trust so you can relax, enjoy, and take it all in. You won’t want to miss all the details you worked so hard to plan!
