Ways To Cut Costs At A Wedding

Your choice of venue plays a major role in the tone you want to set at your wedding. A barn would be more of a fun affair that a banquet hall which will be more formal. Many modern weddings are taken in beautiful gardens where there is ample space to move around and have a good time. Weddings are very expensive affairs as there are many aspects to take care of. Most couples enter into marriage life with a whole lot of debt on their heads. The best thing is to only focus on the most important elements and leave the others. One of the biggest mistakes done by couples is that they spend unnecessarily huge amounts on elements that are of no use and which will also take the attention away from the couple. So here are some of the ways you can trim your wedding budget without missing out on any important elements.

Guest list

There’s no point in inviting each and every person you know to your wedding. First write down a list of the guests you think you need to invite. Next sit down together with your partner and your family members to cut out some of the guests. You’ll be surprised to see how much of a difference it makes in cost by even cutting off 10 people since you will be saving on the food, Save the date cards, wedding shower rental and black and white invitations etc.

Go for new vendors

The more years they have been in the industry, the higher they will charge for their services so pick vendors that are new as they would be willing to give you discounts. For example, if you do not want lavish décor and are going for a single color palette with very simple decoration, you can easily give the contract to a new florist. They might have new and modern ideas than the veterans. Look for additions that will give your wedding a sense of style such as sending wedding stationery packages. The concept is quite new so the vendors will be willing to give you a very affordable price. Some may even opt to do it for free due to the business exposure they get.

The dress

It is every girls dream to have the perfect wedding dress on her big day. However you need to realize that a custom-made dress with all the excess fabric and embellishments is going to cost you a fortune.  Be willing to settle down for a more minimalist dress as they are in style in modern day weddings. You can even purchase a secondhand dress that is in good condition for a much lower price than the original. No one would notice a difference so why not? If you have a certain designer in mind, look for shops that sell that designs for low price Due to the fact that they might be slightly out dated.
