five ways to save on your wedding
The costs of weddings are going up and up and up, but couples budgets aren’t. As such, we know that you’re looking for some great deals for your day. Here’s five suggestions we have to help you spend less on your wedding!
1. Shop Around
Many couples go straight to The Knot, WeddingWire, Weddings.com, etc. These sites can cost a significant amount for vendors to enroll in, so many more affordable vendors choose not to promote through them. There are numerous Facebook groups in every locality where vendors can promote themselves for free and frequently post deals to help peak your interest!
2. Go Non-Traditional
Get married somewhere unique that doesn’t typically host weddings. They’re typically much more affordable as they don’t have the crazy up-pricing for wedding specific events. Wearing a dress not advertised as a wedding dress, or a short dress, will also be cheaper. Vendors know that people are willing to pay extra for their wedding than for a family event. Another way to avoid the wedding up-charge is to elope and have a separate family celebration later!
3. Thrift Shopping
4. DIY (but only if you like it)
5. hire a planner
