How to Save Money on Weddings

Thursday, 23 Dec 2010 12:02 PM

Saving money on weddings is a major concern for many couples. Here are some of the best ways to cut wedding costs:
Choose the wedding venue carefully
One of the first things to keep in mind when planning your wedding is the wedding venue. This place can cost you a ton if you don’t apply some common sense when choosing it. If you want to cut costs on your wedding, the best way is to plan your marriage during the off-season. This simple decision can get you special rates and discounts that might not be applicable during the peak season when the venues are overbooked, and the cost of booking is too high.
Make your guest list short
Another good way to save the money on your wedding is by trimming your guest list. Avoid inviting everyone you know.
Cut cost on your wedding invites
You can bring down the cost of your wedding by going for less intricate card designs for your wedding invites. Make sure that you avoid getting carried away with expensive card designs that burn a hole in your pocket. In fact, you can even try printing your own cards on your home computer to lower the costs.
Go for cheap wedding dresses
Choosing your wedding dress carefully and sensibly can ease the financial burden. The best way to do so is by checking out the best buys online. There are many websites that sell good wedding dresses at dirt cheap prices. This way you can save a lot of money that can be put to better use later.
Choose your food and drink wisely
Getting the right caterer for your wedding day can save you a big headache. Choose a place that offers good food and drink at a decent price. Look for places that offer special discounts.
One of the best ways to save money on your wedding is to decide on your wedding date carefully. Avoid weekend dates as they tend to be more expensive. Choose a week day or a Sunday for your big day function to cut cost.
Obviously, this is not an exhaustive list of points on how to save money on your wedding. There are a lot of other wedding ideas that can keep the cost down. Cutting the cost on wedding photography and the wedding reception will go a long way in ensuring a cheap wedding. You can save on your wedding if you pay attention to these details.
