Fiction: Most vendors don't charge overtime pay for weddings; they include extra time in their contracts since most brides and grooms like to extend their partying.
Fact: Overtime pay for waitstaff, musicians, and photographers can add up quickly.

Some will be flexible and help you keep the party going, but without an agreement in place, you could destroy your budget in the course of an extra half hour.
