Fitting Wedding Venues Into The Budget
When you start to plan your wedding, you have the perfect dress in mind, the most gorgeous cake, and flowers galore. Your wedding likely has a budget limit on it and you have to fit everything into that frame, no matter how large or small it might be. If you have a smaller budget, or you just want to spend more on other items than on the wedding venue, use these tips to work out budget-friendly wedding venues for your important event.
Choose An Odd Day
Everyone has been to a wedding on a Saturday. In fact, most weddings are on Saturdays. It’s convenient and that makes it highly popular. However, it also makes wedding venues more expensive because of the higher demand. Wedding venues exist to hold weddings and they are happy to accommodate other days of the week. You may also get a huge discount for choosing a different day. Plus, if you are having a destination wedding, people are taking off work and traveling either way. The day of the week shouldn’t really matter as much.
Pick A Package Deal
A great way to stay on budget and still get the wedding of your dreams is to find a venue that has some great package deals. Look for a one-stop-shop where you not only get the place where you’ll have your ceremony, but also options for photography, an officiant, and floral design, for example. There are usually different tiers of these packages so you can really customize what you’re getting and make adjustments as needed to stay within your budget.
Pay In Advance
Since weddings are often planned 6-12 months in advance, most wedding venues will allow you to book their space for a deposit. You will then have to pay the rest of the money due at an agreed upon later date. However, if you know you are going to pay for it either way and you are prepared to do so, you may save money by paying for the wedding venues in advance. Ask about possible discounts and take advantage of any you can find. You’ll get the wedding venues you want at a lower price. It’s a win-win situation!
Think Outside The Box
When it comes to wedding venues, just about any location can be a possible venue. You can choose something a little non-traditional, like one of our beach locations, and get a much cheaper wedding venue than more traditional space. They make for beautiful pictures and save you a lot on expenses.
