Tips For A Budget Wedding In 2008

May 14, 2008
Most weddings take place in the summer or the spring. To save money on your wedding, consider having a winter wedding. Winter weddings typically cost a lot less because there isn't as much demand for the winter dates. Having your wedding around Christmas can be helpful if you need to fly in family from around the world because you don't have to worry as much about work schedules.

While most weddings take place on the weekend, you can save money by having a weekday wedding. A Wednesday wedding, for example, can cost about half of the same exact wedding held on a Saturday. While it may be more difficult to coordinate schedules, it's certainly not impossible.

Having a sponsored wedding is a great way to save money on your wedding. A sponsored wedding is just like a regular wedding, however sponsors are used to offset some of the costs. If you limit the sponsors and keep it classy, a sponsored wedding can be virtually identical to a non-sponsored wedding.

Food and drinks are a big portion of your wedding budget. However, you can cut down your catering costs by having a buffet rather than a sitdown meal. Another option is to serve wine and soft drinks, instead of a full bar. If you'd like, you can have an "appetizers only" reception and serve appetizers, desserts and cocktails only.

Using silk flowers instead of fresh flowers will help reduce your wedding costs. Silk flowers are normally a little cheaper than fresh and you can re-use silk flowers for years to come. If you enjoy the fragrance of fresh flowers, you can have the bridal bouquet done in your favorite fresh flowers. Then use silk flowers for the centerpieces and other decorations.

A wedding that takes place in the morning or the afternoon can be convenient to guests and also save money on the wedding budget. Most weddings take place in the evening, so that leaves many wedding facilities available during the day. Ask around and see how much money can be saved by pushing up the time of your wedding.

At Truly Wedding Favors, you can find a wide variety of unique wedding favors that are reasonably priced. Choose from traditional favors, such as candles and picture frames, or more eccentric, whimsical options. At TrulyWeddingFavors.com, you can choose from thousands of favor ideas. Whether you are looking for something classy and elegant or funky and fun, you can find it at Truly Wedding Favors.

It can be tempting to invite anyone and everyone to your wedding. That said, limiting your guest list is the easiest way to save money on your wedding. The fewer guests you invite, the more money you can save. Limiting your wedding to close friends and family can be a gigantic money saver.
