How to Plan Your Winter Wedding Without Breaking the Piggy Bank

Your wedding is one of the pivotal days of your life, and hopefully it is something you only have to do once. With that in mind, it is nice to go all out and plan the event of a lifetime. However, we don’t all have the budget for that. How can you enjoy the elegance you want without spending the first decade of your marriage in debt?  Here are a few quick tips:

  • Don’t have the wedding on Saturday. Saturday is the traditional day for weddings, and that makes it the most expensive. Not only are you more likely to be able to book your favorite venue on a Friday or Sunday without having to wait a year or more but you can also save thousands of dollars.
  • Spend money on what means the most to you. Is the wedding dress a must have, but you’re not a fan of photos? Pick the perfect dress and have one of your friends who takes pictures as a hobby make the photos your wedding present. Do you love to eat but you’re not a big fan of dancing? Spend your money on the meal, make your own playlist, and have a friend DJ the reception.
  • Hire the right event planner. “Hire an event planner” and “save money” may not seem to belong in the same sentence, but it can work to your advantage. Your event planner will have connections to local venues and vendors. That can add up to saving you both time and money in the long run.
