Expected Costs For Vendors

Many couples, when starting out, don't know what to expect to pay for services. Here is a breakdown of what industry-standard pricing can start at in DFW that may help.

This isn't what EVERY vendor charges, some are less and some are more but it's a good starting point. Factors like date, location, specific needs, and taxes will affect pricing.  (Off-days such as Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays can save you money with most vendors.)
