When you start to make wedding purchases, it's a good idea to keep a close eye on your budget. Things add up quickly, and after 30 years in the biz, we’ve gathered a few beneficial budget tips along the way. Here’s some great advice to keep within your budget, and still have a beautiful wedding day! See what our Wedgewood Weddings consultants had to say!
Don’t go crazy on expensive wedding favors. Spend that money on a photo booth or hosted bar!
TREND ALERT: Dessert bars are SO in lately and that is a great way to get aunts, moms, sisters involved.
For evening ceremonies, have bridesmaids walk down the aisle holding thick, LED candles instead of expensive bouquets!
Add a little glam to your guest tables with plate chargers and save on table decor!
Whatever you do, DO NOT skimp on photography!
There’s a common misconception that having a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres-only reception instead of a regular meal is a huge money-saver. You can save by choosing a buffet over plated service, and hearty comfort food over haute cuisine (with the added benefit that no one will go hungry).
Prioritize what’s important to you. Skip the nice-to-haves and go for the must-haves instead!
Create your own visuals! Whether a collection of your favorite framed photos, or making your own directional signs, this gives a personal touch to your day, and you’ll save money for the unexpected!
