It is not good to stress over your wedding day. The main thing we stress over is the cost of things. Don’t stress over that. There are ways to cut some of the costs and save yourself some money in the bank. Take a look at the ways below that you can save money on your wedding.
Have a Sunday brunch or a Friday night get together. This can reduce your price by about 50%.
Have the service and reception in one spot. Not only are you going to save on transport for the wedding party, but it’s going to cut prices on the photographers and other staff you will be hiring.
Cut back on paper prices. Do you really need engraved invitations? Alternatives cost significantly less and seem just as fine.
Cut the guest list down. It is unnecessary to invite everybody from some distant cousin or from work that you don’t even talk to. If you don’t really know them or talk to them, leave them off the list.
Stick with the flowers that are in season. Don’t go out and find some exotic flower that must be shipped in from another country. Find a beautiful flower in your local area and go with that.
Choose tables that are larger so you can fit more than four people at a table. This will help cut down on centerpieces.
Go with a plastic cake for the display and use a sheet cake for your guests to eat. Choosing a wonderful plastic cake for display will save you a ton of money.
Do not get too elaborate on food. Favorite chocolate candies in party favor bags work just as well as truffles. And lately weddings have been overdoing it on desserts. There is no need for a cake along with multiple dessert trays. Ensure that it stays easy. The surplus only gets thrown out.
Consider whether you actually want a consultant. While they make things simpler, many brides have control over choices anyhow and need to be involved in the details. Why pay the additional costs for a consultant?
