Every bride longs for a gorgeous wedding that will be a totally unforgettable and joyous occasion for friends and family to celebrate. But sometimes our pocketbook just doesn’t match our concept of the perfect wedding. In this economy, more and more brides are searching for ways to cut a few corners and save some money here and there. Though it may seem like a daunting task, it’s actually not that difficult. From the flowers to the cake, you can save much more than you think simply by considering some alternatives.
Many of us have friends and family members who are crafty. You may have a cousin who is great at decorating and a sister who loves baking. You probably have an uncle who knows someone who owns a perfect venue for the wedding who would rent it at a discounted price. Don’t be embarrassed about asking your friends and family to help. Most of the time, they’re honored and delighted to do so. It makes them feel like an important part of your wedding.
Keep an Eye Out for Specials
We all loving clipping coupons, but most brides don’t consider searching around for specials and discounts on things like dresses, accessories, floral arrangements and decorations. If you’re willing to do some of the legwork, you could save hundreds or even thousands of dollars. These shopping trips where you go out with girlfriends in search of bargains become a part of the precious memories of your special day. There’s nothing more fun than spending a day with your sister and best friend running around to various stores. You can’t buy memories like this.
There are so many great, fun ways to cut back on the cost of your wedding. Check out a few of these:
Avoid weekends. Instead, get married on a weekday. Venues charge less on weekdays.
Choose flowers that are less expensive like peonies or use flowers that are in season.
Hold the wedding and reception at the same location.
Keep the menu simple. Avoid expensive entrees.
Limit the beverages to 3 or 4 and avoid expensive wines and champagne.
