Recently Engaged? Small Tricks To Save Money On Your Wedding



As the holidays come and go, it's almost tradition for countless people to get engaged. Whether kneeling in front of the Christmas tree or frolicking around in snowy bliss, the season set an ideal backdrop to say "Yes." And this year, you were lucky enough to make this commitment as well. 


Well, once you pop the question or slip a ring on your finger, the reality of the coming months hits:


You have to plan a wedding. 

While money might be on the top of your worry list, you don't need to let these woes take over. An average of 44,230 weddings take place every weekend, and these don't all need to be extravagant affairs. There are many ways to save money on your big day, but these are some choices you can make to save a little cash. 


Tie the knot in the off-season.


While you may have dreamed of a Summer wedding your whole life, booking during these peak months can rack up your bill. By booking your wedding in early Spring or late Fall, you can likely save on booking venues and caterers. 


Book your ceremony and reception at the same place.


Why book two different places when you can find one beautiful location to do it all? This will not only be easier on your wallet but on your guests as well. Everyone can simply move to different parts of the venue depending throughout the day. 


Find a deal on a limo.


There are more than 130,000 limos in service in the U.S., and many of these are rented for weddings. But that does not mean you need to follow suit. It certainly pays to shop around for limo deals, but it might also be worth it to find other ways to get around. 


Get creative with the food.


To save some cash, many couples are skipping the sit-down mean and opting for something more budget-friendly. This could be a buffet or all appetizers for example. There are plenty of ways to work within your budget while still keeping your guests happy. 


Be crafty.


When it comes to the flowers and other decorations especially, get your friends together to see what you can create. By including natural elements especially, you can significantly cut down on your decor spending. 


Wear a non-traditional dress.


If you or your partner are wearing a wedding dress, take a different approach to finding your perfect gown. Consider skipping the bridal stores altogether and finding other dresses that you like. You may also consider refitting a dress that once belonged to a family member for a more vintage look. 


With endless ways to pinch pennies while still having the wedding of your dreams, feel free to get creative with your money-saving tricks. Because no matter how much you spend, you will still have a beautiful and memorable day.
