6 ways to save money on your wedding

*Collaborative post.

Weddings are always so expensive. It is a special day and worth splurging a little on but it is always good to watch the pennies at the same time. These days, there are lots of ways to save money for your wedding. You don’t have to spend your entire savings to have a good wedding ceremony. Here are 6 ways to save money for your wedding –

Start planning early

The best to save money is to get on top of the planning process quickly. Planning early is a good way to ensure you stick to your budget and it also allows you more time to shop around and find the right vendors for your wedding. If you are doing most of the planning last minute, it is more likely you will spend more than you would have if you had more time.

Pick a date that isn’t in demand

Picking a date that isn’t in demand is a smart way to save some money while planning a wedding. The summer months are usually in demand for weddings. Almost every bride wants a summer wedding. Picking a date outside of the summer months will automatically reduce the cost of your wedding. Also, a weekday wedding will also bring costs even lower. Weekend dates are usually a lot more expensive than weekday weddings.

Put your negotiation hats on

You have to be good at negotiating to get your costs down. Do not be afraid to negotiate with your vendors to ensure you get the best prices for what you need. It is also best to shop around and compare various quotes before picking the vendors you want.

Save costs on your photography

You save money on your photography wedding costs by getting a good Wedding Photo Swap app to collect and share photos taken by your guests on your wedding day. That way, you get to see loads of all in one place take from different angles. I wish I had a photo-sharing app for my wedding when we got married. It would have been an amazing addition and a cheaper way to get many more photos.

Get prom dresses for your bridal train

Choosing prom dresses for your bridal train is another fab way of saving costs on your wedding day. There are loads of options available in many designs and colours. There are prom dresses for every bridal train. You can also get inspiration from these stylish prom dresses for your wedding dress.

Reduce your guest list

You don’t have to have the whole world at your wedding. Small intimate weddings are usually a lot more fun, plus they are a lot cheaper to organise. You can slash your costs massively for your venue and catering by just reducing the number of people you invite.
