Wedding Budget Tips
HOW CAN YOU SAVE MONEY?
Choosing the right day/time of your wedding is very important. Everyone wants to get married on a Saturday and you’ll pay the price. You will pay less for a venue, band, photographer and more if you have it on a Friday or Sunday Wedding. I found this at Zephyrcove.com Paige is already saving money because her wedding will be on a Monday.
Save on a venue spot. Choose a place that doesn’t typically host weddings like a historical building, college campus (ask for an alumni discount), or a brewery and chances are it will cost less than more traditional spots like a country club, hotel or winery. Check your College Alumni Association for available discounts. You can also got to eventup.com
HOW CAN YOU SAVE MONEY ON THE WEDDING RECEPTION?
Flowers are very expensive, shop at wholesale flower markets in your area and see when they are open in the public. You can save 60-75% less than retail. For entertainment, hire student musicians from local colleges to play at reception. Find caters who are trying to get into your location as a preferred vendor. They’ll usually offer a discount to get your business.
