Lower Your Wedding Costs
When you begin to plan your wedding, there are a few things to consider when choosing your wedding date if you want to save money. If you have the ability to be flexible, take a look at the month and day of the week that you can have your event. The biggest way to save is to have your wedding in the off-season. Try to avoid high season months like May, June, September, and October. This is prime-time for weddings and most professionals know they will book up so may be less likely to negotiate. You can save not only on your banquet hall, but most vendors will be much more flexible in their negotiating during those off months. Once you choose your month, consider a time other than Saturday night. Most people want that prime time slot. But, if you choose a Friday night, Saturday morning, or Sunday wedding, you will be looking at another large savings.
