For example, you might love the idea of having a Rolls Royce drop you to your chosen wedding venue but if your chosen venue is just down the road from your house and you’re having your ceremony and reception at the same venue, chances are you won’t need any transport at all saving you approximately £500 straight away! Choosing a venue that’s closer to home might also save you a small fortune on accommodation so it’s a win win situation!
Your chosen wedding venue will be so much cheaper if you book a date that’s out of season, this immediately avoids the unnecessary additional cost for the same venue. If a winter wedding excites you, this is certainly an option for you.
Instead of providing wedding entertainment plus wedding favours, why not combine the two by providing entertaining wedding favours such as sparklers or bubbles for the children.
Be prepared when it comes to the mini bar and stock up on alcohol and snacks to see you through the night before your wedding without being landed with a hefty hotel bill.
If you and your partner aren’t massive drinkers, save on the drinks package by providing a small amount of alcohol in glass dispensers and once that’s gone, make sure your venue has a bar where your guests can pay for their own drinks.
Try not to get too carried away with the whole venue malarky. Instead put up a marquee at home and opt for celebrating in the garden in a place where you already have some amazing memories.
This is just food for thought but really have a think about what’s necessary and who knows, you might save yourself a small fortune!
