5 Foolproof Ways to Save on your Wedding Reception

In the interest of budgeting for your dream wedding, we’ve come up with some additional ways to save some green on your white wedding.

If the initial sticker shock of wedding planning has you thinking twice about an elopement, here are five ways you can save on your big day and still have the wedding of your dreams:

Be Flexible with the Date and Time

Try to lock down a wedding event venue that offers wedding receptions during the week. Sundays and Thursdays are great weekend alternatives. You can also plan your celebration over brunch for a fun, unique twist on the typical nighttime ceremony. Book outside peak times and venues are more likely to cut you a break. Guests are also less likely to eat and drink as much during the day, which saves you money on provisions.

Consider Alternate forms of Entertainment

Live music is expensive. Unless you happen to have a harpist in the family, try creating your own party-perfect playlist. Focus on crowd favorites and love songs that are meaningful to you and your sweetie. Pro tip: down-tempo acoustic covers are a romantic way to give guests their top 40 fix.

You can also set up lawn games while the bride and groom take pictures. They’re an inexpensive way to get the party started, especially if your celebration is during the day.

Pair Down Provisions

There’s nothing that says you have to feed guests a multi-course meal on your wedding day. It’s perfectly acceptable to have hors d’oeuvres instead. If a full bar is blowing your wedding budget, have a small selection of beer and wine and allow guests to self-serve. Same goes for food. Try a family style set up to save on servers.

When it comes to dessert, you can have a decorative wedding cake set out, but serve your guests a plain sheet cake to eschew pricey bakery bills.

Use Budget Blooms

Find wedding flowers that are both local and in season to save big. If you really have your heart set on one particular blossom, see if you can find a less expensive doppelgänger in the same color. A cost-effective centerpiece made of large blooms like hydrangeas or a cluster of heirloom carnations looks great and your guests will be none the wiser.

Don’t Sweat the Dress

When you’re booking the perfect full-service wedding venue, timing is everything. Same goes for buying your bridal gown. Research summer and winter blow out sales. Many bridal shops and designers use them to make way for spring and fall fashions.

A simple sheath dress is also great for layering personalized accessories and embellishments. Avoid alterations with dresses that have built in corsets.

We believe that a small wedding isn’t the only way to save on your big day. Before you start cutting the guest list, see if these tips help corral your spending.
