My fiancé and I are getting married September 12th, 2015 and are doing most of it ourselves and have hired a DOC to implement everything. One thing that makes us nervous is our budget. Not the amount but more managing it. I was thinking one way that we could feel more secure is to pay vendors upfront rather than a deposit now and the rest the day of the wedding. Are there any drawbacks to this plan? Has paying in advance bit anyone in the a**? My biggest concern is paying upfront then between now and the wedding something coming up on the vendors end. Would we be out the whole amt or would they be expected to pay that back?
