Planning your Big Day can be one of the most stressful experiences for a young couple to encounter. Some couples are able to foot the bills themselves, while others have the traditional support of their families when funding their wedding. Either way, expenses can add up quickly!
Whether you use a Wedding Planner or not, Made by Hana – Wedding Planning and Coordination suggests the following 5 money saving tips!
1.Off Season Wedding
May to October is usually the busiest and most expensive time of year for weddings. By considering the option of an off season wedding (November to April), many venues and even some vendors are able to provide discounted rates.
We have all been there. There are many eager students looking for experience in their field, who are willing to offer services at a discount rate or even free! Everything from photography to apprentice bakers are out there and willing to get the experience.
Wedding attire is known to have hefty price tags, but when considering other options, it can be a breeze! Sample sales, off the rack selections and even rentals, are becoming more and more popular. Make sure to start early and take your time looking around to find the perfect fit!
Flowers can add up quickly. Consider the option of shopping at big box grocery stores such as Costco and keeping flowers in the fridge. This should only be done the day before the wedding or the morning of the wedding to make sure they are as fresh as possible.
Many vendors who attend bridal shows, often offer Show Specials for attendees. Search places like Groupon for discounted tickets to shows and when attending the shows, make sure to collect information from each of the vendors you are interested in.
