1. Know The Guests
In the process of deciding who to invite, many couples are often faced by a problematic situation where their parents insist on inviting their classmates of class 1951 to your wedding. If you know them personally, then you can consider to invite them but if you have never even seen them before, it’s best to just tell mom and dad that you won’t be inviting their friends. More guests equals to more expenses so make good decisions for your guests list.
2. Help Over Gifts
Tell your friends to skip the presents and instead, help you out on your wedding day! Whether it is to set up the venue or even cooking for the wedding lunch, it would save up a lot of your money and save the fuss for your friends to think of what wedding gifts to buy. It is a win-win situation!
3. Outdoor VS Indoor
Now, outdoor weddings definitely does not cost as much as indoor weddings but that too depends on the decorations and other miscellaneous items. For indoor weddings, a lot of decoration is needed to avoid the venue from being too plain and dull compared to outdoor weddings where nature and the beautiful view compensates for the simpler decorations.
4. Lessen the Flowers
Instead of having individual hand bouquets for each bridesmaid, a hand corsage is much more affordable. Besides, the flowers will wilt by the end of the wedding and it would be so painful to think of disposing your money into the trashcan. Also, skip the floral center pieces on the tables so that not only do you save your money but also allow everyone to communicate with each other easily without a huge vase blocking their view.
5. Offer Sincere Testimonials
Talk to your vendors and offer them a deal where you give them a sincere and positive testimonial on their site in exchange for a lower price of the service by the vendors. Some vendors need these testimonials to establish a form of trust from potential clients who wants to know more about them. Not only did you save that few thousand bucks from having this bargain with your wedding vendors, you also get to do a good deed by helping these vendors gain a good reputation.
