Finally, after all of your presumed preliminary events of wedding season, from the engagement parties to the bachelor or bachelorette shindigs, the main event is now here. Planning your wedding is a very stressful experience, especially since it tends to be a pricey one. The average wedding will cost you over $30,000, and this initial expense will start many marriages that they never truly recover from on the wrong foot. If you are still in the starting and planning stages for your big wedding day, here are a few nice tips to help you cut back on expenses a bit. Read on to learn so much more!
The Wedding Plan
One cost you might not need at all is the wedding planner. It is a huge undertaking, but there isn’t a reason you can’t plan out all of the details of your wedding by yourself. If it is something you feel pretty confident taking on, and your soon-to-be spouse agrees, go for it. We at H.C. Walterhoefer can help you with each step of the wedding by providing you with event and party supplies too.
The Wedding Guest List
The wedding guest list is the first place where weddings start to spiral out of control. You do not have to invite each and every single person you’ve ever met or everyone in your family. If you hardly know your second cousin or your one friend from middle school, they probably don’t need to come, and they might not want to come anyway. Remember that each person on that list needs a save-the-date, an invitation, a stamp on their own envelope, and a spot to sit and food to chow down on at the reception. Are the dollar signs starting to add up? A more intimate wedding will be more affordable and still a memorable and lovely experience.
Finding a lovely reception hall that is flexible will also be crucial to saving a few dollars. This flexibility might look like allowing you to book a weeknight or not limiting you to one set list of caterers. Sometimes they’ll even negotiate on the price if you ask them. Finally, consider a spot that does not have a reputation as a wedding party area, you’re less likely to have to pay more.
