Are you looking to have an amazing wedding within a limited budget? No problem! There are plenty of ways to save money when planning your wedding. From DIY options and repurposing past bridal décor to making certain money-saving decisions, you can still have an amazing wedding without sacrificing style. If you are looking for ways to save some money on your wedding, we are here to help. Keep reading for four cost saving ideas for your wedding.
1) Get Married During the Off Season
If you are looking for ways to save on expenses, one option is getting married in the offseason. Not all venues offer lower rates during the offseason, but many do! The offseason in New Jersey is typically November through April, due to the colder temperatures. If you plan your wedding during these months, you may be able to save on both the venue and some vendors that offer discounts.
2) Have Your Ceremony and Reception at the Same Place
Another way to save some money on your wedding is to have your ceremony and reception at the same place. This has many benefits. The first is that you will not need to pay for transportation, which can save you thousands. This is especially true if you have a venue that has suites where you can all get ready on the big day. Having your ceremony and reception at the same place can also save you on décor costs since items used in your ceremony can easily be transitioned over into the reception.
3) Choose Flowers That Are in Season
Something else to keep in mind if you are looking for cost-cutting ideas for your wedding is to purchase flowers that are in season. To do this, speak with your florist to review options. You can rest assured that there will be many amazing flowers in season, so your bouquets will still look great no matter which flowers you choose.
4) DIY or Use Recycled Wedding Items When Possible
Another way to save some money during your wedding is to DIY whenever possible. There are simple tasks that you can do yourself, like making wedding favors, creating and printing signage, and even making your centerpieces. Plus, you can search secondhand wedding websites or groups and purchase items from past brides for a fraction of the cost.
