5 Ways to Save Money on your Wedding
Off Season Wedding Date
Plan your wedding date around off season, this allows you to get lower prices at fantastic locations because most wedding venue locations have lower rates during their off season. Planning an off season wedding date is by far the number one way to save money on your wedding day.
Shop Off Season & Thrift Stores for Décor
You have your wedding day theme set and you know what décor you are ready to have for both your wedding ceremony and reception. Be sure to shop during off season at bridal shops as well as to check out local thrift stores as a means to find high quality items at a heavily discounted rate to save money on your wedding.
Shop Consignment Stores or Sales for Wedding Dress
I got my wedding dress at a deep discount. I’m also going to take my wedding dress to a consignment store soon, both of which are great ways to get a really good deal on your wedding dress.
Serve Simple Appetizers
Depending upon your vision of what food will be served for your wedding reception; you could cut corners in the area of food for guests by serving appetizers, like these Lil Smokie Stuffed Jalapeño Bacon appetizers and simple drinks versus having a cash bar or large main entrée meals. This is all about you and your partner, if you both feel there is no need for an expensive, extravagant meal then don’t feel pressured to do so.
Save on Entertainment
Try to find an apprentice DJ who can do both the wedding ceremony and wedding reception music. When you hire a beginner DJ you really can get the same quality as that you get with a more experienced DJ but at half the cost! Saving on your musical selection can really be an easy way to save money on your wedding.
To recap the 5 ways to save money on your wedding day featured here are to plan a wedding for an off season date, shop thrift stores for wedding decor, hire an apprentice DJ or a local band wanting to get started, serve simple appetizers and shop at a consignment store for your wedding dress.
When you use these 5 ways to save money on your wedding day, you will feel more relaxed and have the ability to fully enjoy your special day without breaking the bank.
