12 Tips to Save Money on Your Wedding

Weddings are a joyful occasion bringing family and friends together to celebrate the happiness of the lovebirds tying the knot. Weddings can also be staggeringly expensive.

Don’t start your married life in debt because of the wedding!

A few little tips and tricks can help to shave dollars off your wedding bill, leaving you with more to spend on the fun part – the honeymoon.

1. Have your ceremony and the reception at the same venue. This will save you multiple site fees as well as transportation costs from one place to another.

2. Save money on fresh flowers for the bridal party bouquets by using fake flowers. It’s easy to find realistic faux flowers; unless your guests are scrutinising the bouquets, they’ll never know they aren’t real.

3. Be on the hunt for reception packages. Holding your event at a venue that provides catering will save you quite a bit.

4. For the reception go for bigger tables; you’ll need fewer centrepieces and tablecloths.

5. Try shopping online for your dress. There are some amazing cheap options online. Even if you end up buying one or two dresses to try, you’ll still spend less than buying from an expensive boutique.

6. Save money on booze. Offer beer, wine and a signature cocktail instead of a full bar.

7. Order a small tier cake and then supplement it with a larger sheet cake for guests. You’ll still have the sweet cake-cutting moment without the huge cost of a big tiered cake.

8. Send digital invitations to save on printing and postage costs.

9. Borrow from a friend/family or use your own stereo system in lieu of hiring a DJ. Create your own playlist with a few hours of your favourite music and put the speakers on the dance floor.

10. Put guest’s names on their menus instead of splashing out cash for up for place cards.

11. Enlist friends and family to help you create the decorations for your big day. You’re sure to know someone crafty who’d be happy to help.

12. To save money on those all-important (and super costly) wedding photos, hire someone that’s just getting started in their career or someone who shoots weddings as a side job.
