25 May Best Ways To Save Money On Your Wedding Day
One of the biggest problems with arranging a wedding is the fact that you will often have to choose between having your dream wedding and saving money.
Many couples will want to try their best to stick within their budget, but of course, they will have things that they really want to have at their big day.
Dream of an expensive dress? Take a look at the sales
Some brides will have a designer dress in mind for their big day, however, these designer dresses come with a designer price tag, which might completely blow your budget.
If you really don’t think that you can scrimp on your dress, then a good idea is to hit a sale and see if you can find your dream dress at a budget friendly price.
Don’t pay out for expensive bridesmaid gowns
We all want our bridesmaids to look great on our wedding day, but this doesn’t mean that you have to spend hundreds of pounds on them.
There are a wealth of high street stores that have budget friendly dresses that look a lot more expensive than they are, and if you are not too fussed on them all matching then you can also buy them second-hand to keep the cost down even further.
Skip on the photographer printing your photos
It is a nice idea to have your photographer print up your wedding photos and make an album, but this doesn’t mean that you have to pay out for this service.
Having your photographer do this can be expensive, if you want to save money, then why not skip this part of the service and instead print them up yourself?
Think about timings, days and time of year
It is no secret that weddings in the Summer and at the weekends are more expensive.
So, if you want to save money then you might want to consider holding your big day off peak instead.
You could also think about the time of day you arrange your wedding, if you want to save money, then why not have your wedding in the late afternoon/early evenings, this can really save you some money and creates a romantic atmosphere too.
Consider different options for your food
Couples seem to think that they have to have a sit down dinner on their wedding day, but this really doesn’t have to be the case.
Not only is this incredibly formal (which might not be the vibe that you are aiming for) but it also can be expensive.
A much better idea is to consider other options open to you, such as a picnic, afternoon tea or maybe even a BBQ.
All of these work really well and not only save you money, but are also something that your guests will enjoy too.
These are just some of the ways that you can try and save money on your big day.
The approaches that you take will be down to you and where you think that you are happy to spend out and where you are happy to cut back.
