How to save at a wedding is what many couples ask themselves, but they do not dare to say it openly. In an important event like a wedding you should not skimp. Or at least not too much because it’s just a moment, 5-7 hours nothing more. Anything, it can go wrong and ruin everything. But little by little fills a jug they say out there. So saving a little bit here and little there (you know that I like that tactic), you can gather for 3 more days on the honeymoon or give two monthly payments from your home. You have to do it with care but you can.
Do the event on another day other than Saturday. Friday or Sunday are good days. Friday if it is in the night, and Sunday if it is a day wedding. The price of the living room / ranch / garden will be between 10 and 20% cheaper.
Cut the guests they know are not very close. People who do not see for centuries and try to avoid co-workers if their offices are many. Your close friends will understand.
Do tasting and ask for seasonal food. Nothing very exotic or extravagant but TASTY. Extravagances usually cost 20% more.
Encourage yourself to remove a dish from the menu. Maybe 4 times are too many.
Ask for the basics of alcohol: red wine, white wine, rum, whiskey, tequila and 1digestive. The more beverage options, the more bottles you have to buy.
For floral arrangements, ask for seasonal flowers and try to choose a nice ornamental accessory (like bamboo, a candle, glass, etc.) so you do not have to buy as much flower!
Do not ask for the biggest (and expensive) package from the photographer. Ask for the basic and make sure there are many more photos thanks to your guests. Ask everyone to bring a camera and share.
A Dj is cheaper than a musical group. And a good DJ can make a great atmosphere. Make sure it is what you are looking for.
Few “memories” are kept by the guests. Do not spend on them. Or they give something meaningful and ideally done by you (like a well-made binder of family recipes) or something rich with food like almonds.
How to save money at an elegant wedding depends on the details and the personality of the couple
Do not skimp on the invitations too much. If they are very X flat, nobody will want to go, much less make a gift! Set a reasonable and real budget.
That reflect their style and what they want from your event. Handmade paper and giant envelopes are not necessary.
If you want a nice but inexpensive invitation cut the following: Envelope (that is triptych or diptych), engraving (the highlight, and that is printed) and cellophane. These three elements together can lower the cost by up to 30%.
Hire the makeup and hairstyle with the stylist you trust. With whom you always do treatments. It is much more likely that the price is reasonable, in addition to that you already know you and your tastes.
Do not look for the most expensive dress. Find the dress that you really like. If it is worth doing Price & style shopping for the dress.
Do not spend a fortune on shoes either. As a woman I have discovered that while it should be fascinating to walk in a Jimmy Choo, the wedding shoes should be cute and comfortable not necessarily expensive.
If you know how to do well, make yourself up.
Definitely the suit rent is the option. 18. When you buy the shoes, think of a shoe that matches the suit (tuxedo, tuxedo, jacket) but that you can also use at other times.
GET OUT WHEN YOU DO IT IN ADVANCE:
You can tie a good price of the place if you do it well in advance.
The same for other services such as photography, invitations, souvenirs or limousine.
You can buy bottles of alcohol one by one among the whole family every week, every 15 days. That way it does not feel so heavy and the expense is shared.
22. If you consider it appropriate, ask your friends and / or family to be godparents of some things not so expensive, such as the ear, the tie, the cups, the bouquet, the league, or more expensive things like rings, cake, flowers. It helps a lot. Just let them decide freely if they want or can. This is the most controversial form of saving because there are those who consider it in poor taste … but doing it with tact is indispensable.
