While wedding planning, many brides are so focused on staying under budget that they might be tempted to choose whatever has the lowest sticker price. Unfortunately, in some cases this can actually backfire, costing more in the long run than their first choice would have. If you choose a wedding venue you don’t love, for instance, you could end up spending a great deal of both time and money trying to hide the imperfections or aspects that don’t suit your own style. So when it comes to making your money work for you, it is important to choose big ticket items that will truly help you achieve the wedding of your dreams, without breaking the bank.
Make the Big Purchases Count!
When it comes to wedding planning, one of the best ways to save money is by choosing a wedding venue that is beautiful enough on its own right, that it does not require lots of decorations.
- Highlighting the natural beauty of your venue and cutting down on the flowers and other decorations can save hundreds or thousands of dollars in the long run.
- Choosing a venue that includes table and chair rentals is another simple way to save both time and money.
- This same principle can be applied to other big purchases, too. For instance, choosing a dress that requires little jewelry or other accessories is a great way to make such a big purchase really count.
- A photobooth can serve as both entertainment at your reception, and provide your guests with favors they’ll actually cherish.
