North Kingstown, RI (PRWEB) February 10, 2011
This Valentine’s Day, WhatitCosts.com is wrapping up a special gift for romantics everywhere: a special Wedding Planning section that offers dozens of easy-to-use online guides to help people navigate an array of wedding services and prices.
This comprehensive online resource will be just in time for the latest crop of engaged couples to begin planning the biggest celebration of their lives. WhatitCosts.com has long been recognized for providing cost-driven data and information available in the form of mini-guides on everything from common goods and services to rare and extravagant finds. Since the general site went live in 2007, hundreds of thousands of people have turned to WhatitCosts.com to provide valuable information on hard-to-quantify costs.
“Now, with no end in sight to the lingering recession and the unemployment rate at a continuing high, we wanted to apply our expertise to help newly engaged couples plan the wedding of their dreams while keeping their eyes on the bottom line,” says John Moran, a co-founder of WhatitCosts.com.
Like the rest of the WhatitCosts.com website, the new Wedding Planning section offers a generous selection of cost-driven information, advice and data researched by highly trained journalists, all of it presented in a clear, easy-to-use format.
For instance, “What It Costs for a Wedding Cake” covers the basics from what to look for in a baker; how to decide on a cake size, style and flavor; and the going price range for various wedding and groom’s cakes. It also gives ideas on where to splurge and how to save.
“What It Costs for a Wedding Dress” explores where to shop, what types of fabrics to look for and how to match the style of your bridal gown with the formality of your reception.
The wedding section also provides information on often overlooked costs, such as how much to tip wedding vendors, what to budget for bridal gown alterations and what to spend on wedding favors. In addition, for couples concerned with the impact of their wedding on the environment, information can be found on what it costs for an eco-friendly wedding and what it costs for carbon offsets.
“It's obvious that people will continue to get married no matter what the economy does,” Moran says, “but how couples manage their wedding budget has taken on increased importance. It's essential that they know what they are getting for their money.”
