Everyone wants to have the wedding of their dreams, but sometimes the wedding of our dreams hits our pocket-book with a hard dose of reality. So, for those of us who want to cut costs, but don’t want to sacrifice the integrity of our big day, here are eight helpful tips:
5) Have your wedding earlier in the day. Caterers often charge less for breakfast and lunch foods than they charge for dinners, and, if you are planning on serving alcohol, people tend to drink less the earlier it is in the day. Food an alcohol costs can add up fast, so planing an early wedding can save a lot of money. Also, if you have your wedding early, that just means more time to escape off onto your honeymoon!
4)Choose a beautiful setting. Selecting a pretty place can bring your decoration costs way down.
3) Choose your guests wisely. This goes back to your food and alcohol costs. You probably don’t need to invite your entire little league soccer team to the dinner. Just saying.
2) Use a playlist from an iPod instead of a live band, or ask one of your music savvy relatives to act as deejay.
1) Schedule your wedding on a weekday. Wedding venues, like Meridell Park, tend to be far less busy throughout the week. Furthermore, they tend to offer significant discounts on these days.
