Simple Ways To Save On Wedding Costs

Simple Ways To Save On Wedding Costs

How expensive should a wedding be? Whatever your idea of the ideal cost of a wedding may be, wedding dresses, food, and general reception costs can quickly drive up those figures. If you are on a shoestring budget, you might worry about how to keep your budget on target without sacrificing the quality and style of your wedding. How do you keep your wedding from costing an arm and a leg?




1. CUT DOWN ON GUESTS

Don’t wince just yet! We know it is your special day and you want as many persons as possible to celebrate with you, but is it really worth the cost? But think of it, your cost per guest can be as much as $100 for seating, photographer, gifts, etc. By reducing the number of guests at your wedding by say 50, you save yourself about $5,000 in costs. Try inviting only close friends and family and keeping off those you’ve not seen in a long while.
 



2. WATCH OUT FOR PRINTING COSTS

 
Wedding invitations can make for some of the more expensive wedding expenses. Using multiple color shades may match your wedding theme, and going for gold embossing and stylish ribbons may turn up the style, but these bore a deep hole in your pockets. Search out a talented designer online for your wedding IVs, keep designs simple, and print from home (if you know how).
 
 


3. IGNORE PRICEY TRADITIONS

 
Hosting a big wedding party in a fancy venue with stylish dishes and an ice sculpture is definitely alluring. We know. But can you cut down costs by ignoring some of these traditions? For instance, using expensive bridesmaid dresses might give your wedding some “class”, but you can cut down on those costs by going for something simple, stylish, and yet inexpensive. A rule of thumb will be: before making any purchases or adding any expense, ask yourself if its absence will really be easily noticed and sorely missed.
 
 



4. KEEP THE MENU SIMPLE

See, French dishes served by neatly dressed waiters turn up the glamour in your wedding. But they also ramp up the costs. Keep dinner simple with three wonderful courses rather than five. If your guest list is limited, a buffet will eliminate the cost associated with waiters without washing down the style. And a late afternoon wedding can afford you the chance of using plenty of small chops and hors d’oeuvre stations rather than expensive meals.



5. GET FRIENDS TO HELP

No, you really shouldn’t get just about any well-meaning friend to assist with specialized stuff. That’s a no, no! If you have friends who are pros at certain tasks, though, they make for good cost savings. Take a look at their work and be sure they are good enough to give you the quality you deserve. Professional friends may choose to subsidize your costs or even help you out at no cost with photography, videography, or even floral decorations.
