Best Ways to Save Money While Planning your Wedding
If you are planning your wedding, you will undoubtedly be wondering how you can cut down on costs for the big day. Well, we are here to introduce you to some easy ways to save money on the celebrations!
We understand that budgeting is an essential aspect of your overall planning. But don't let it spoil the excitement leading up to your special event. Whether you are living large or on a tight budget, every last cent counts when it comes to expenses.
In this post we will help you with a few budgeting tips. By following these, you can make the most of your wedding budget.
Host your Wedding in an "Off Peak" Month
Consider getting married in a less popular or off-peak month. The wedding off-season at Addison Woods includes the months of January, February, June, July, and August. As a Houston wedding venue, we can offer you a discount if you plan your event during one of these months. Rest assured - these months are a great value investment!
Consider a Weekday Wedding
To put it simply, planning your wedding on any day other than Saturday will help you save a lot of money. Many vendors offer discounted rates for mid-week celebrations. Plus, it leaves you a better chance of booking your favorite vendor as they are likely to have more availability. If you can make it work, we highly recommend hosting your event during the week!
Take a Hard Look at your Guest Count
It goes without saying but the more guests you have, the more your wedding will cost - so consider smaller, more intimate nuptials. We know it's hard to consider a celebration without including certain people, but trimming your guest list is the easiest way to bring your budget down. Your guest count can impact every aspect of your budget, including your Houston venue pricing, catering, food, alcohol, cake, invitation costs and rentals.
Prioritize What Matters the Most
Finally, and most importantly, take some time to clearly define your vision in order to work out your priorities for the day. Take the opportunity to discuss with your partner the most important aspects of the day and the things you would like to focus on. This will allow you to identify the areas worth investing in and the ones you may be able to cut out completely. Anything that isn't a priority should be reevaluated to save more from your budget or invested elsewhere.
By following these tips, you will be surprised at how much you can save. It’s all about working strategically and allocating your funds according to your priorities.
Rest assured, you can create an absolutely beautiful wedding on any budget. Use the hints, tips, and hacks above to help you bring together a stunning celebration without sacrificing the details you’re dreaming of.
