Wedding Scams You Should Definitely Pay Attention To!
You want to plan the most amazing wedding ever – and that’s perfectly understandable, given how unique this moment is in your life.
Of course, you should definitely pay attention to the details that make your wedding feel lovely, unforgettable.
But do you pay attention to potential scams as well? This is really important because a scam can completely turn your plan upside down – and that’s something you clearly don’t want for your Big Day.
What are some of the most common scams connected to weddings? We have some tips for you – so keep on reading and find out more.
The gemstone scam. Some of you might feel that you are saving a lot of money buying the wedding jewelry from a rather unknown jewelry (online or offline, really). While there might be a lot of amazing places that haven’t gained a reputation just yet, it’s probably best to stick to those places who have actual experience and actual reviews from real people. You don’t want to buy a ring that’s just barely covered in gold, and you most definitely don’t want your earring’s diamonds to fall off as you walk down the aisle.
The vendor scam. This sounds scary – but there are a lot of so-called wedding pros out there that will actually disappear on you right before your wedding day (and conveniently enough, after having received an advance payment). ONLY work with recommended vendors and vendors who have actual reviews online. Even then, do make sure they provide you with a contingency plan (in case they get sick on your wedding day, for example) – the last thing you want is a vendor that pulls a disappearing act on your wedding day.
The planner scam. You might say we’re biased here – but there are so many planners out there that don’t actually give you what you deserve. Not only are they scarce with their communication, but some of them might actually vanish into thin air when you need them the most. Our advice is to work with reputable planners who actually have something to show for their experience and who will actually be there for you every step of the way.
