Tips For Saving Money When Wedding Planning
Let’s be honest, planning a wedding can be expensive. While there are some areas you shouldn’t skimp, by strategically planning your wedding, you can save some serious money! Whether you’re in the middle of planning your wedding or are simply taking notes for the future, these tips will help you come in under your budget.
Schedule Your Wedding In The Off Season
Believe it or not, there are peak seasons when it comes to weddings. If you are willing to schedule your wedding in November or January through March (with the exception of Valentine’s Day), you can save as much as 20 to 30 percent on your wedding.
Avoid Choosing A Saturday
Without a doubt, Saturday is the most popular day to schedule a wedding. When you’re planning your wedding, ask about rates for Friday or Sunday. These days are actually becoming much more common, so most guests should be understanding.
Think About Buying A Secondhand Wedding Dress
Consider checking sites like eBay or craigslist for dress postings or visiting a consignment store that sells wedding dresses. In many instances, you can find a dress that’s never been worn before by a bride changes her mind about her dress or the wedding is postponed.
Get Creative With Save The Dates And Invitations
Don’t dismiss digital save the dates. Because these are typically less formal than the invite, think about sending the save the dates via email. If you have any family or friends who are talented photographers, ask them if they’d be willing to take the photos for your invitations. This can take quite a bit off your wedding total.
