10 Tips to Stay on Budget for Your Wedding

BrideStLouis is Best for Wedding Planning in St. Louis

 

Saying “I DO” can be a budget buster.  Here are some tips and hints to save on your celebration:

  1. Keep the wedding guest list under 100.
  2. Limit the wedding party – keeping it small. This cuts down on the cost of attendant bouquets and gifts to each member in the wedding party.
  3. Consider having the ceremony and reception at the same site – thereby paying only one site fee and possibly fewer total hours. This can also save on transportation costs – no need for a party bus.
  4. Find a venue that allows you to bring your own food. This blog post lists those that we recommend:  http://www.bridestlouis.com/venues-that-allow-outside-caterers
  5. If your event is small and intimate, create your own personal playlist and purchase a blue tooth speaker.
  6. Try “off season” times like December and January. Vendors will usually work with you on a special price as this is a slower time for them.
  7. If you really want a popular month like May, June, September or October go for a Friday or Sunday to save money.
  8. When shopping for your wedding dress, ask about off the rack “inventory” dresses. Many bridal shops have a good selection of discounted, previous year’s styles that are beautiful.
  9. Set up a wedding checking account and make deposits monthly. Use only that money for the wedding allowing you to see what you are spending, and a better way to stay on top of the budget.

Weddings can be beautiful without depleting your bank account and being in debt for years.

 

 


Wedding Planning – Important Dates to Keep in Mind for Your 2019 Wedding

Congratulations to all you brides sporting a beautiful new rock on that left hand.  One of the first questions you will be asked is, “Have you set a date?”  The date you choose is key to your entire event.

If you are on a tight budget there are some dates you will want to avoid and if you choose a date around a Holiday, you might find your favorite vendor already booked.  To save money, go for a Friday or Sunday wedding as many vendors will offer a reduced price on those days.   We also listed the 3 day weekends – these are great for guests who need to travel.   October is a very busy wedding month.  If fact, it ranks up with June as one of the most popular wedding months.
