5 Simple Ways to Trim your Wedding Budget!
Nov 14th, 2011
Every couple looks for ways to cut down on their budgets in ways that do not detract from the overall ceremony. Here are five reasonable alterations you can make to your wedding day to trim off unnecessary expenses!
Ditch the program
The program is a ceremony tradition naming all of the members of the wedding party and those involved with the celebration. However, many guests either leave these behind in the seats or later throw them away. Why spend the money if it is likely not to be appreciated? Try a “line-up” board at the end of the aisle. Also, you can think of it as going green!

Off season weddings often allow you to save because venders tend to offer lower rates for the months when they experience lower demand. Also, as a bonus… winter weddings, especially with a snowy backdrop, make for beautiful photos!

Bypass a big tab that comes with having a huge spread of liquor and beer and offer a signature drink! Pick something that has general appeal but is also special to you. You’ll have fun naming it, and the colors always look so fresh and creative!

When planning out the decorations of your reception venue, evaluate each addition by asking yourself: is this necessary? For example, do those table cloths on your wedding party’s table really need to be made more expensive by making them a color rather than white? Or do all the guests need a seat cushion? Keep it simple where you can. Each one of these small upgrades adds little value to the celebration but add a big chunk to your budget.

Why have you or your bridesmaids spend hundreds of dollars on brand-new dresses, when they can just go to Bridesmaid Trade for beautiful once used options? We always have dresses, like THIS one available, often in multiple sizes. Save some money and look great!
You may end up needing a math degree from one of many online universities just to count all the money you have saved.
