Budget Conscious?
5 Tips to Save Money on Your Wedding Day

February 11th, 2019

Hey Friends! And hello to all our “budget conscious” brides! Today is your day. We are advising on how to save money on your wedding day. Whether you have a high budget [aka . . . no budget] or a minimal budget, we are happy to help!

[Side note – we are going to focus on weddings but these tips can be used for any occasion.]

1. Get married during the off-season: if there is no preference when it comes to the season, choose a month such as January or February. The winter months are less attractive and therefore venues / vendors may offer a deal for some extra business!

2. Choose a day other than Saturday: once you choose the month, choose a day other than Saturday if it works for you. Most venues will offer discounts since those days tend to be less popular as well.

3. Paperless RSVPs: we aren’t huge fans of going 100% paperless for your invitations but it is an option to save money. We suggest sending out invites and then having your guests RSVP online!

4. Buy your own alcohol: instead of hiring a bar service, purchase your own alcohol and hire a bartender. It will require more labor but in the end you will save money. That’s the goal right?!

5. Opt for a month-of coordinator: we know planners can be expensive but they are necessary. Instead of hiring a planner for full-service, opt for partial planning or month-of-coordination. The extra money will save you from a huge headache the day of your wedding and of course time throughout the planning process.

There it is, 5 simple steps to saving money on your wedding day. Don’t let the stress of expenses keep you from having the event you envisioned. Contact Beyond Details at info@beyonddetails.net for additional advice. We would love to help!
