Three Simple Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Reception

In today’s economic climate, it seems like everyone is looking to save a little money on their wedding.  Here are three easy ways to save money without compromising the quality of your event.

Three Simple Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Reception

1) Lower your guest count.  Almost every wedding has a huge price tag associated with each additional guest. When you are looking to save, start at the guest list.  Shaving off ten guests often saves over $1,000 in reception costs. This is the easiest way to save tons on your wedding spending. Really, when you consider your guest count, its your day, do you really need to invite the co-workers you hardly speak to? Even the neighbor? Create two lists if you must to help you make tough guest list decisions. “Must invite” list versus “Would like to invite” list. You’d be amazed when you really start to look at your guest list from this perspective.

2) Get married on a Friday, Sunday or on an off-season date.  Most venues have large minimums or increased charges to get married on Saturday night.  It is the most popular day, therefore the location can charge more in response to demand.  Usually you can get the exact same event for a lot less money on a day other than Saturday.  Many of the us Wedgewood Weddings professionals have held our own weddings on Thursdays, Fridays or during the winter. We realize that money goes a lot further on those dates. Most people concerned with a non-Saturday wedding are worried that guests will be unable to attend. In all reality, if they are an important part of your life, they will make the necessary arrangements to attend your wedding regardless of date.

3) Take advantage of package deals.  When trying to purchase all wedding items individually, the price is significantly higher than buying a package.  Packages allow you to bundle together multiple services and ultimately save you time and money. And besides, who really wants to research and negotiate each individual vendor when your Wedgewood Weddings pros have already done that work for you? No, thank you! Stress-free and simplistic planning please!
