What question am I asked most? How do can I do this wedding for less?
Weddings are expensive, they are full of many details, and there are always a lot of opinions and wishes that a designer has to keep in mind.
These are my top five tips for saving money.
Do not get married during peak season. If you are planning a wedding on the coast of Maine, choose a date between November-May to get the best deal. If you want to get married in the Alps, choose a date in April after ski season and before the summer season.
If you must get married during the peak season, choose an off day of the week. If you select a Wednesday, you might get a deal on everything from the venue to the band.
Select an off time of day; a brunch is a lot less expensive to host than an evening event. You will save on both food and beverage costs.
The best cost-saving advice is to select a venue that includes tables, chairs, linens, flatware, glassware, etc. People often think having an event at home is less expensive, but that is not true. Rentals add up quickly.
Lastly, keep your wedding small. Everything is based on your count; fewer people equals less cost. A small family wedding with a few close friends is a great way to keep your costs down.
Remember your guests are there to celebrate your union; they do not know what you had planned; they only know what they see!
