How to save money on your wedding? 

Part 1

1. Book an ‘unpopular date’

A typical wedding season is March - November and the busy days are Fridays and Saturdays (and bank holiday weekends)

Plenty of venues will offer crazy discounts in off-peak times - sometimes up to 50%!

If you give your guests plenty of notice they might not have as much of an issue with booking the day off as you might think. However, do speak with the nearest and dearest before committing to a date.

2. Book last minute

If you book last minute you might bag yourself some discounts. Sometimes it's worth asking for shorter day or take something out of the package to make it cheaper for you and your supplier!

3. Get married later in the day

This one is an easy one - the later you get married, the less food you will have to pay for. Food is expensive! If your ceremony is at 4-5 pm your food can be served around 7-8 ( you will still need time for photos and maybe some welcome drinks ) and it will be a normal dinner time. People would have already got their lunches before your wedding. That way there’s no need for a giant evening buffet.

4. DYI

If you’re short for cash, there might be things you can perhaps attempt to do yourself. Try Pinterest and YouTube for ideas and learning how to do new things. Why don’t you try to make your own bouquet and buttonholes? Love singing? What about karaoke for the evening entertainment?

5. Don’t have a sit-down meal

Food is one of the biggest expenses of your day. Some food trucks might work so much cheaper than your usual sit-down wedding meals.
