While we try to make our wedding’s as cheap as possible by offering a package. There’s still a lot of small costs that go into a wedding that end up making big dents in your bank account. To help, we’ve listed 5 easy tips that will drastically cut your wedding expenses.
- Use Your Connections
The friends, family, co-workers and acquaintances in your life all have amazing skills that you might not even know about. From superb DIY skills, beautiful cake decorating, to amazing instrumental skills, you never know what talents those around you have. Go through your friend’s list and see what careers or hobbies your friends have that could help your wedding. You could ask for help in exchange for a wedding gift or get something at a massive discount, especially if they’re not a professional but just a great hobbyist.
2. Create Your Own Invitations
Say goodbye to expensive invitation designs and instead make your own! If you’re not very design-savvy then you can use websites like Canva, or hire a student or freelance designer to help out.
3. DIY It
Say goodbye to bought and hello to DIY. Check out your wedding needs list and see if you can do any of it yourself. Like your own simple DIY photo booth for guests, decorations or even flowers.
The biggest secret to cutting your wedding costs is planning. Start with your budget and everything you need. Then go through and see what’s least important to you and your partner. Then make small sacrifices on those items, such as switching a DJ to a playlist. Cutting down your guest list, or switching flower centrepieces for candles. This way you save money while not making sacrifices on the things that are most important to you.
5. Go For Someone Less Professional
Just because someone doesn’t have thousands of likes or a business card, doesn’t mean they aren’t as good as their bigger competitors. You can save hundreds of dollars by going with small businesses, freelancers or students for things such as photography and makeup. Just make sure you do your research and go with your gut feeling.
