Weddings are magical and are full of affection and joy. You are getting married, have you planned for the big day? How many people will be attending? Well, weddings tend to be very luxurious affairs. However, you don’t need to break the bank to make your wedding day a day to recall. There are numerous ways you can save on your wedding. You can still have a lovely wedding even if you are planning to walk down the aisle with a strict financial plan.

Select an off-peak wedding period

Do this by choosing a less common month like February or January. Keep in mind that not all weddings are made to be equal. It’s okay to be different. Check out the most popular wedding days and avoid them because chances are, you will end up paying a higher price to get the ideal wedding venue.

Avoid huge guest list

Sometimes, you might be drawn to list everybody you know on your wedding guest list. However, that is not a good idea. Remember that you are adding extra cost with every additional attendee on the list.  A big wedding guest list is a trap that many people have fallen into. To save some money as much as you can, try to lessen the number of attendees and make the event more intimate.

Opt for wedding help instead of gifts

Almost all families have at least one member that has some talent; use that. They can be able to provide some melodious accompaniment for your wedding service. Additionally, some friends might want to offer their services, for instance, photography as their wedding gifts for you. Try to save money as much as you can. Choose a family-owned eatery and ask them if they will be willing to cater at your wedding ceremony.  Family-owned restaurants have that charm and are always ready to go the extra mile to make your wedding more exceptional.

Fill the bar yourself

If you want to save money on your wedding reception, make sure you buy the liquor yourself. Ensure that you approximate liberally and order just what is needed. This way, you will not end up with lots of expensive leftover alcohol that you cannot return to the vendor. To be on the safer side, choose a liquor vendor who will be able to do refunds for unopened bottles.

Do without tradition

Avoid planning your wedding with customary images on your head. Big wedding events, elegant wedding settings, and sit-down ceremonial dinner should not be in your head if you want to save money. Don’t be afraid of skipping some of these traditions. There are many ways in which you can have a lovely and inexpensive wedding. For instance, instead of a fancy wedding reception, choose a public park, or even an art gallery for your reception.

Have a wedding planner by your side

Wedding planners can be able to help you save on your big day. They know the exact way to work your budget, no matter big or small. Wedding planners are inexpensive since most of them offer supplemental help by the hour or even day.

The Bottom Line

There are numerous other ways that you can save money on your wedding day. Prepare for your wedding day by first dedicating the most substantial part of your budget to the most significant parts of the wedding and be willing to sacrifice the rest.
