1. Complete Ballpark Budget Planner:
Because we don’t have set packages but provide you with a complete personalized one, you’ll need to establish your budget first. Calculate a rough ballpark budget figure for your entire wedding for us to create your quote from. Note: pricing following is not NWI pricing but industry wide averages. If you don’t like the figure you end up with, decide before contacting us where you’re willing to compromise (i.e. guest numbers, save $1000 by booking on a Friday, $2000 by booking on a Sunday, limiting decor etc.). Many of our vendors have given us significantly better pricing so that will help. Our Goal: NWI will try to get you a complete wedding package that fits your total budget!
