Budget Tip #4 – Saving on Your Wedding Celebration

Saying “I DO” can be a budget buster.  Here are some additional tips and hints to save on your celebration:

  1. Keep the wedding guest list under 100.
  2. Limit the wedding party – keep it small.  This cuts down on the cost of attendant bouquets and gifts to each member in the wedding party.
  3. Consider having the ceremony and reception at the same site – thereby paying only one site fee and possibly fewer total hours.
  4. Have your wedding on a Friday or Sunday.  Lots of vendors charge less on these days.
  5. Why not an early morning or early afternoon wedding.  You can eliminate a lot of alcohol and possibly a band/disk jockey.
  6. Talk to a photographer with special prices for Friday/Sunday weddings, or possibly limit photography to just six hours.
  7. Set up a wedding checking account and make deposits monthly.  Use only that money for the wedding allowing you to see what you are spending, and a better way to stay on top of the budget.
