Sticking to your budget is one of the trickiest parts of planning a wedding — especially because there are so many hidden costs.

Check Wedding Costs We read with interest an article from Bridal Guide . They’ve set out 30 things that brides forget to budget for.  One of their points, rightly so, regards ‘Meals on the Wedding Day‘.    During the day brides and the wedding party get hungry… can you believe that!  Of course they do.  As a Melbourne wedding limousine service we have experienced this on almost every occasion! But Love Limo has always had that covered.  Sometimes it’s not thought about, so we ask the question when an inquiry is made. Not only do we keep the bar stocked with bottled water, juice, soft drink, beer and champagne, we offer optional catering for the bridal party limo to ensure that there’s food available to keep the hunger pains at bay.  And if you have special requirements, you only need to ask and we can arrange whatever you need. There’s no problem with stopping off to get some take away during the course of the day if that’s what you want, but, we’ve got you covered! Here are their 30 Points.  Head over to their site to the the full article.
