30 Apr The Top Wedding Budget Tips To Get The Most For Your Money
Weddings are expensive, and it doesn’t matter if you are planning a £5k wedding or a £25k wedding, you are going to want to make sure that you get as much as you can for every single pound that you are going to be spending out.
Always have a spreadsheet
It doesn’t sound like the most interesting thing to do, but when you want to make the most of your wedding budget, a spreadsheet is the only way to go.
It will help you plan, help you budget and help you to keep track of your spending.
All of which will help you to make sure that you keep to your budget.
Offer to pay in full when you can
Now it may be hard if you don’t have the money already saved, but if you can offer to pay suppliers upfront, rather than putting down a deposit, then you can save yourself some money.
If you are worried about protecting yourself, then pay on a credit card and then pay that off in full, as this will help to make sure that you are protected.
Embrace the power of DIY
DIY during your wedding day isn’t always the easiest of things to do, but it can save you money.
There are countless DIY approaches that you can take now and if you are not sure whether or not you know what you are doing, there are also videos online that you can follow.
It is also worthwhile seeing if any of your bridal party or family are happy to get involved with a spot of DIY, as the more hands that you have on deck, the better it is going to be for you in the long run!
Get married out of season
Whilst the summer is often the chosen time to get married, due to the weather being the best, but it can cost you a lot more money as everything is more in demand.
The simplest way to save yourself some money on your wedding day and still have the day that you hope for, is to get married out of season.
Choose the spring, choose the autumn, even choose the winter, it might not be as sunny and warm, but it will still be a fantastic day!
Think outside of the box with catering
The most traditional approach to take on a wedding day is a sit down meal for all your guests, but this can be one of the most expensive parts of the whole day.
If you want to save money, then you are going to want to be creative with your catering choices.
There are plenty of street food style suppliers out there that are going to make sure that all your guests get a tasty treat and that you save yourself some money too.
As you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can have an amazing wedding day, without having to worry about how much it will cost you!
