According to Modern Bride Magazine:
Only 5% of your wedding budget will be spent on Entertainment
Over TWICE the number of your guests will remember your ENTERTAINMENT choice more than they will remember ANYTHING else about your reception.
Planning in advance is vital to a successful wedding and reception. Planning and budgeting for those items / activites that will make an actual impact on the experience of your guests is vital.
Some items, while "attractive", will not affect the overall experiece of your guests. Many expenses such as Chair Coverings or Bows on Chairs will have no impact on your guests enjoyment. Plan with care and get the most bang for your buck.
