Weddings are usually a tricky combination of planning, preparation and compromise. Doing your research is the ideal way to properly prepare yourself for one of the most important days of your life. Here is some advice that can make that come true.
Choose a less popular month to get married if you want to save money. Most weddings take place between May and September. Wedding venues are more expensive during these months. If you can’t plan your wedding at any other time, book your venue as soon as possible to get a great deal.
You can not serve everyone’s favorite top-shelf drink or you would quickly exceed the price of the dress, so consider what you like, and what will keep you within your budget. An open bar that is available all evening can quickly become a very costly endeavor. The folks running your venue may have affordable bar services, so be sure and ask them about it.
If you decide to cater your own wedding party, go to the big wholesale stores, like Costco. Wholesale prices are generally lower. Ask friends to help on food, too.
Wedding pictures are a great way to commemorate an incredibly special day. Many couples look at them throughout their life. Choose the best photographer you can, even if it costs you extra. You want to be sure that your wedding will be remembered fondly.
Booking a venue for your wedding can be extremely expensive. If you know anyone with a farm or a large back yard, you can drastically reduce or even eliminate a major wedding cost. Offer to pay someone to come in ahead of time and after the event to do the cleaning for them, but that should be your only cost.
Flowers look beautiful as centerpieces on the dinner tables, but don’t overdo it. The majority of the times, the flowers just get in the way. Plus, some guests may be allergic to flowers. Try putting some scent free candles on your wedding tables.
Hopefully, the tips you learned here will help you make a wedding that runs smoothly and is everything you want. Remember to remain calm and continue to educate yourself for a stress free day you can now make the most of.
