It is really important to start your marriage on the right foot, united emotionally, and without huge debt. The secret is to know what are your must-haves and what you simply do not need and will not miss. Check out these ideas to guide you save money for your wedding:
Start putting aside some extra savings as soon as you get engaged. Can you challenge yourself to 50% of your income?
Attack the small stuff. After a year, it will really add up. For example – make your lunch at home and take into the office. Instead of splurging on take-out dessert, make one in the office kitchen or take from home. Instead of your pricey gym membership, why not go for a run, walk or hike? The extra cash you will save will pay for so much more at the end of the day. Besides, you may even enjoy these changes!
Don’t get married on a Saturday! Plenty of venues offer a discount on days which are less busy.
Get married at the end of the off-season. Chances are the weather will be fine and it is always much cheaper.
Have your ceremony and reception at the same place.
Find a venue which can be flexible with the vendor requirements.
Rent a hotel or a place that can triple as a wedding venue, housing for out-of-city wedding party participants, and secluded honeymoon venue the following week.
Get married at the courthouse, then put those savings into the reception.
Don’t feel that you must have the traditional sit-down dinner reception, consider generous cocktail food selections.
Do not feel you need to have endless alcohol options.
Choose a venue that needs little decor. Eg. garden venues.
