It is well known that wedding planning can be one of the most stressful activities in which a person might participate. Between caterers, jewelers, bakers and florists, keeping sane during the process is hard. Luckily, these tips can help you plan the ideal wedding.
To save money, choose a date that is not when most people typically get married. The wedding season is traditionally from May through September. You can expect to pay more if you schedule your wedding during this time. If you must book a space in these months, be certain to book way ahead of time to get a reasonable deal.
If you are making the food for your wedding, try shopping at stores like Costco. When you’re shopping wholesale, you will be able to purchase a lot more food for a lot less than if you were to shop elsewhere. See if your friends can chip in for food costs.
You can save quite a bit of money by purchasing your wedding dress over the Internet, but make sure to factor in shipping and alteration time when planning when to order. In fact I spent $300 in total, $100 for the gown itself, and only another $200 for the tailoring. Be sure to include the potential alterations cost into your budget.
Have your wedding at a location owned by friends or family. Using someone else’s property can free a huge expense from off your plate and allow you to allocate funds elsewhere. You can make sure the cleaning and setup is done, of course, but that is the only thing you should have to pay for regarding the wedding venue.
Having read these handy, helpful tips, you are now ready to go forth and plan the perfect wedding. Whether you are planning a wedding or thinking about someone else’s wedding, the advice that follows is beneficial.
