The best way to save money on a wedding is to avoid unnecessary costs. A few clever tricks can help you find the perfect venue for your big day while still spending less than you probably expect.
One great idea is to have a micro wedding, a small, intimate affair hosted by the couple’s closest family members. Afterward, guests can go to a nearby restaurant or have a casual BBQ. This type of event is ideal for those on a budget or trying to limit their spending on an event that will last only a few hours.
Another idea for getting married on a budget is to host the ceremony and reception at the same location. You can have a friend or family member take photographs or DJ, to save money on your big day. A great venue for doing this is a Kent Barn Wedding. For a stunning Kent Barn Wedding, visit The Plough at Leigh.
Some couples opt for an all-inclusive package deal, and these are available at many places and usually include flowers, photography, and catering. If you are interested in this option, check out all the options before making a decision.
Another budget-friendly idea is to buy second hand. Many charity stores have vases, balloons, and other decor items, and plenty of online stationery providers offer budget-friendly options.
Finally, consider having an outdoor wedding if you are planning a summer event. An outdoor ceremony and reception are fun and functional, but they can also add a personal touch to your special day.
