how to keep to your wedding budget


It is so important to keep to your Wedding Budget. The last thing you want is starting married life in debt.

Here are some simple tips to help you to keep to your wedding budget.

Providing your own drinks?

Put any unopened bottles of wine and prosecco/champagne behind the bar for the evening reception. Don’t overdo the number of bottles on each table. If there are more red wine drinkers on a table than another, the chances are your Guests will swap bottles between tables – therefore less waste.

Re-Use Items During Your Wedding Day

Don’t have separate flowers and décor for your Ceremony Venue. If you are decorating the Church (for example), ask a member of your Bridal party (or Wedding Planner) to transport them to your Reception Venue.

Swap Dessert for Cake

Rather than having a dessert, why not have your wedding cake? Especially if you’re not having extra Guests to your Evening reception.

Your Wedding Night

Most Wedding Venues with accommodation offer a complimentary room for the Bride and Groom. Take advantage of this option.

Don’t forget the High Street

Search the Sales for décor options to compliment your wedding style.

Do It Yourself

One way to ensure you’re sticking to your wedding budget is to do as much yourself as possible. Make sure you plan as much as you can in advance though.

Little ones at your Wedding?

Keep them entertained by getting free templates off the internet or cheap colouring books and crayons.
