How To Save Money On A Wedding


Weddings are expensive, but you don’t have to spend all your savings on your big day. There are ways to save money on your wedding without compromising the fun or flavor of the event. Here are some tips:

Keep the guest list down.

Invite only those that you love, and who are going to be happy about being invited. If you have a small family wedding, don’t invite extended relatives (unless they’re really close). Instead, invite only the people who were born into your circle of friends or family members; this will help keep costs down while still providing all the fun aspects of an event!

Consider having your wedding during an off-season month or on a weekday.

If you’re planning on having your wedding in the summer, it’s worth considering whether it would be cheaper to have it during the off-season months or on weekdays. Although weddings are generally more expensive during the summer season, there’s a reason why people choose to get married at that time of year: they want to be surrounded by family and friends.
If you’re planning on having your wedding during an off-season month (like January or March), however, consider finding other ways of saving money—for example, by doing some research into local venues where they might offer discounts because they don’t have many weddings going on yet. Or perhaps even look into getting married at one of those locations first!

Prioritize your wants.

The first step to saving money on a wedding is prioritizing your wants. This can be difficult, especially if you’re used to getting what you want. But it’s an important part of being able to save money on your big day and still have everything that matters to you come together.
If there are things in life that are more important than others, then they should take precedence over those other things when making decisions about where and how much money goes towards them. For example: instead of spending $100 on a meal at Applebee’s or Chili’s (both restaurants we all enjoy), choose something else that will make everyone happy with their food choices! Or maybe even better yet…go out for lunch instead!

Stay within your budget.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a good time at your wedding. Stay within your budget. In fact, doing so can actually be detrimental. It’s important to think about what you really want and what will make you happy on the day of your wedding—not how much it will cost. If there’s something that won’t make you happy or bring out the best in both yourself and your partner (for example, if one person wants cake but the other doesn’t), then maybe it would be better not to spend money on it at all than put off necessary changes until after the ceremony has already started?

Look for a wedding venue that can hold both your ceremony and reception.

When it comes to saving money on your wedding, having a ceremony and reception at the same venue is one way to do it. You’ll pay less by choosing this option than if you were getting married in different places with separate ceremonies and receptions.
Another way to save money on your wedding is by having both of these events occur during the same time period—for example, during lunchtime or early evening hours. This allows guests who work during those times to come together for an outdoor celebration with food and drinks as well as music playing overhead while they enjoy each other’s company in what might otherwise be considered an inconvenient location (like outside).

Choose a restaurant instead of a traditional wedding venue.

A restaurant wedding is a great way to save on costs. You can choose the type of food you want, and it will be cheaper than renting out a venue or catering services. If you’re looking for something simple that won’t cost too much, consider having your ceremony and reception at one location:

  • Restaurants are usually less expensive than other options like hotels or churches.
  • The food will be prepared by trained chefs who know how to make delicious meals without breaking the bank!
  • Most restaurants have some sort of entertainment package available as well (sometimes even live music).


Be creative with flowers.

Flowers are a great way to show your love, but they can also be expensive. If you’re budget-conscious, try growing some flowers yourself! You’ll save on the cost of the flowers and have something beautiful in your garden all year long.
If you want something more unusual (or if you don’t want any of the other options), try looking into local flower shops or ordering online services like Amazon Prime Pantry or Hallmark Greeting Cards to get exactly what you need for less than half off retail prices.

Skip the chair covers or invest in inexpensive ones.

  • You can save money by skipping chair covers.
  • If you are set on using chair covers, do so with inexpensive ones.
  • Use fabric that matches your wedding colors and prints for the tablecloths and napkins.


Ask friends and family to contribute their time and talents to help save money.

Ask friends and family to contribute their time and talents to help save money on a wedding.
Asking for help can be difficult, but if you take the time to explain exactly what you want from them, they’ll be more likely to agree. It might sound embarrassing at first—asking your mom or aunt who lives far away from where you live in Virginia Beach for help with decorating one of the most important days of your life—but it will pay off later on when you look back at pictures taken by someone else and see how beautiful everything was!

If you want to plan a fun wedding without spending too much, you can do it!

If you want to plan a fun wedding without spending too much, you can do it!
You don’t need to be on a budget or have no money at all. You just need to use your imagination and be creative with the way you think about planning your big day.
For example: if you’re getting married at an expensive venue like the Grand Hyatt on Park Avenue in New York City, consider renting out that space for other events instead of having it exclusively yours—that way, there will still be plenty of room for dancing!
Or check out sites like Craigslist or eBay before making any purchases online because they often have great deals on things like dresses and flowers that may otherwise cost more than expected if purchased straight from retail stores (which we’ll get into later).


With a little planning and time, you can have a fun and save money on a wedding. Find your local community center or library and take some classes to help you plan for it. Be sure not to skimp on the planning!
