As we discussed in PART 1 of this series, wedding budgets in the Dallas area are often a topic of conversation for us. The fact of the matter is that the cost of a wedding is totally based on what you want and what your priorities are. In PART 2, we looked at a midrange wedding budget to see how that changed the look and feel of your table from a standard budget level. In Part 3, let’s see what happens to the design and product quality when we take the budget up another notch!
**Please note – these are suggested budgets only. No couple ever has exactly the same budget, because no budget reflects the same priorities!**
The Luxury Level – $100,000 and up for 150 guests
Place Setting and Table Details
So now we can add in all the pretty design elements! We brought in chairs to suit the color scheme, as well as upgraded linens, chargers, china, and glassware. We also added a menu at each placesetting to bring in the stationery themes and tie the event day look back to the invitation suite.
The centerpiece on this table is a little more elevated than that of the Standard table. We have a lovely silver mercury vase for the centerpiece with full and lush floral. We mixed and matched vintage votives in silver and glass to add a little more shimmer. At this budget level, we usually see a mix of these low, lush pieces with a few taller elements to give the room a little wow factor. We may even add a third style of low centerpiece in a simpler vein.
You can get a sense of how you might apportion your costs when looking at the full event budget. There are definitely places to give and take here – it all depends on matters most to you and your partner! For example, maybe you would rather have a DJ than a band. That opens up a fairly large amount of money to be used for additional décor, like seating vignettes or specialty furniture, which can make your wedding unique!
We hope these tables help you with your budgeting! If you missed the first two parts of the series, see the Standard table and budget HERE and the Premium table and budget HERE. If you’re already feeling overwhelmed, CONTACT US about helping out with your budgeting!
