9 Tips on How to Save Money on Your Wedding

1.       Move around flowers- A great way to save money on your wedding day is to reuse your floral arrangements throughout the day. Having flowers at your ceremony? Have your wedding coordinator or a friend bring them to the reception space to use them throughout the room to add more decor without spending more money.

2.      Used centerpieces- A vintage or used goods store is a great way to find unique vases and small accessories that you can use to dress up your space. These tend to be cheaper than renting from the florist, plus the added benefit of being uniquely yours.

3.      Get married at the end of the season- Many venue and vendor prices will change with seasonality. Consider getting married towards the end of the summer or even the winter time.

4.       Marry on a Sunday- Some cultures traditionally get married on Sundays but most of the US still consider Friday and Saturday the prime days to get married. This means that the prices are highest during the beginning of the weekend and can drop drastically on Sundays.

5.      Buy a white dress- Wedding dresses can be one of the pricey items on your big day. Consider buying a white gown that is not specifically marketed as a wedding gown. Consider nicer dress shops or even bridesmaid dresses that come in white.

6.       Stick to beer and wine- Keeping your liquor cost low will make a difference in your big day budget. Beer and wine will keep most guests happy. However, if your group has some big drinkers, consider having a cash bar.

7.       Don’t give plus ones to everyone- We live in a world where casual dating is much more common. Some of us would prefer to not have complete strangers at our wedding. Consider inviting couples only if you know both partners, or because they have been together a significant amount of time.

8.       Buy kitchen cakes- Consider buying a smaller tiered cake for pictures and display as well as a few sheet cakes to keep in the back. This way you still have the visual appeal of the tiered cake but can financially afford to feed the masses.

9.       Limit your vendor hours- It might not be that important to keep your bar open during dinner and first dances, or have your photo booth in a separate area so that tear down can happen without distracting the party.
