Lower guest list count.
Cut down on the guest list if you want to get your wedding costs under control one way or the other. remember the fact that you will be spending money for the food and wedding favors of each and every single guest who will be attending your wedding day so get this figured out or taken into account all throughout the time that you are planning out your main wedding day so far. If they don’t really matter to you that much, you shouldn’t feel obliged to invite them to the wedding. Be careful about plus ones as well. This can add up pretty quickly so make sure that you particularly state on the invite whether you are allowing plus ones or not. Unless they ask you in particular, there really is no reason why you have to pay for anything extra for people that you don’t even know in the first place. Your vendors such as your female wedding photographer and the venue for the wedding will ask you about the head count and will base their rates off of this one way or the other so cutting the list short can do you a lot of financial favors somewhere along the way.
Go off peak and save thousands on the costs.
Booking a wedding during the slow season technically means that you aren’t paying for an overly inflated price and what this directly results to is thousands of dollars in terms of savings which is why you should always try to do a little bit of research to see what your local wedding vendors consider as the slow months. Strike while the iron is hot and you will have tremendous price cuts out of your efforts. Anyone to everyone from your professional female wedding photographer to your caterers and even the venue will lay off of the high prices if you book them during the lean months so always strive to go for this all across the board.
Go all inclusive.
An all inclusive wedding venue will allow you the convenience of holding the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception all in one place. What this technically means is that you will have less to worry about in the way of the travel time in between events and this also means that you get to maximize the active hours of the wedding industry professionals that you are hiring out such as your professional female wedding photographer when you have everything all in one place.
Skip the Saturday booking.
Saturdays could result to an easy 20% increase on the rates for all wedding products and services. Stop aiming for a Saturday wedding altogether. Those who matter the most to you will move mountains to be there for you and for your partner during the wedding day so stop worrying about it and go for a weekday as much as you possibly can.
Less tables technically means that you have less centrepieces and thus, less expenses while you are at it. Go for less but bigger tables at the reception so that you will be able to save a little bit of money on the side through this.
