Want a Budget Wedding? Here are 5 Ways to Save

Budget wedding tips

Having a wedding is an expensive endeavor. The average cost of a wedding is $26,645, but many couples manage to keep the price under $10,000. Still, it’s not easy to have a budget wedding. Expenses pile up fast and you can undermine your budget goals fast.

So if you looking to have a great wedding and stick to your savings goals, see our 5 tips to have a budget wedding.

Choose a different day of the week

Saturday is by far the most popular day of the week for people to get married. So venues and other wedding related services will offer lower prices if you book for a weekday or even a Sunday. If you get married early in the peak season as well, the savings will be even greater for your budget wedding.

Book far in advance

By booking venues and other services super early, you’ll save a lot on these expenses. That also allows you to be strategic for when you purchase other things, like invitations, to wait for sales.

Keep the liquor options limited

Don’t provide a fully stocked bar for your friends and family. Instead, get a keg from a local brewery and have a few wine options on hand. That will be enough to keep everyone happy while keeping your budget on track. You can also add a cocktail option as well to suit other tastes.

Don’t serve a sit-down dinner

Instead of splurging on a fully catered sit down dinner, consider appetizers instead. People love appetizers and they cost a lot less. Not everyone wants a huge dinner at a wedding, so why offer one?

Ask for services instead of gifts

Many people have skills they can offer instead of a gift you don’t really need. Have a friend who is into photography? See if they will take your wedding photos. And if you know someone who loves music, why not have them DJ?
