Ways To Save Money On A Wedding

Wedding receptions can be quite expensive. Starting from the bridal gown to the smallest detail as the thank you notes cost you money if you don’t take all the measurements to cut down on possible items. This doesn’t mean you have to be cheap at your wedding, but you need to be smart to know which items you should be spending on. You can still have a nice function at a lower cost. There are many ways to save money when planning a wedding, here are few ideas that you can follow.

The venue

The venue is the most important part of the function. Most brides would want a dreamy venue. But the thing is that you can save a lot of money if you choose the right location. For example, if you want to have that fairytale like wedding you’ve always dreamed of, you don’t necessarily have to have it at a very expensive hotel you can even have it at a park or your back yard if you do the decoration right. The money you save from the location can be used to get a high quality photo. Venue takes up most of the money; you can save a lot by either renting a public space like a park or the church back yard for the wedding.

The services

When it’s a function you got to think about the services you need to hire. Catering services, decorations, florists and various other services are there. One way to save money on these services is to get a friend or family to do them for you if possible. If you have siblings you can get them to do the decorations and if you can get your friends to do the ideal spousal photography it will be very much helpful. Not only you can save money on this but also you can share some good memories with your friends and family. If you can’t do that you can also hire one vendor to do most of the services. This way you can save from the extra service taxes and various other charges paid to different vendors.

The food and drink

The menu you choose can have a big influence in the budget. You need to be smart when selecting your menu. If you are on a tight budget but you still want to have a good reception and feed your guests good food. You can have a cocktail. It would be slightly unconventional but it will still be a good idea. You don’t need to make expensive food but you can arrange cocktails and finger food. If your wedding is in the evening this is a good way of saving some money. If your wedding is in the morning, you have to provide lunch in this case go for food items that taste good as well as not very expensive. Avoid fish and lobsters and seafood. They cost a lot and you need to have large amounts of them as well. Instead you can have a large pot roast or a roast lamb or pork. These are really tasty food and since they are very oily guests will be full soon and you don’t have to spend too much food as well.
