There are thousands of tips and tricks to save money on your wedding, but these are the three I find get you the biggest bang for your buck without cramping your style.
New here? Welcome! I also have these blogs to help you
plan your fabulous wedding:
1. Custom Invitations
Invitations are the first thing guests see about your wedding, so naturally you want them to look nice. Invitations can cost a fortune, which seems a bit absurd when, unfortunately, most of them end up in the trash.
Grab a bottle of wine and invite a few of your closest friends to help you pack invitations then take them out to brunch to thank them. Places like Vistaprint offer much affordable options. Talk to your wedding planner to find ways to create or find custom templates.
Since plated dinners must be plated in advanced and served at the same time, it requires a lot more labor than asking your guest to serve themselves.
Buffet style dinner saves you a good chunk of change because it doesn't require you to staff as many people. This also allows your guests to pick and choose their favorite sides for themselves, making it a win win.
3. Student Discount
When it comes to photographers, videographers, bands and DJs, try looking into nearby college students or recent graduates. There is so much talent waiting to be discovered, and chances are you wouldn't find it by doing a simple Google search.
In most cases this will allow you to get a considerable discounting comparison to those who have already made a name for themselves.
