Guest Blog by: Brian K.
Are you planning a wedding with limited funds? Expenses can add up fast! There’s the dress, venue, cake and, of course, the food. After the ceremony, you’ll want to celebrate with family and friends while dining and dancing into the night. How can you make your reception memorable yet affordable? Incorporate cost-saving strategies when planning your reception and you’ll be on the right track!
Tips to Save
• Ask guests to RSVP: Having a guest list helps you plan seating arrangements and eliminates ordering too much food. Not only will you be organized, you’ll also save money.
• Create a unique menu: Remember this is your wedding day—just because family or friends prefer steak and shrimp, doesn’t mean you have to serve both or either. Check with your local caterer for a simple yet elegant menu selection to fit your budget.
• Skip the flowers: This is a huge money-saver and a wonderful option for brides (and her guests) that have allergies. Instead, use colorful décor and linens to brighten a space.
• Capture the memories: Let guests be your personal photographer and take candid photos of each other. Just place inexpensive disposable cameras on each table—you’ll have great memories to last a lifetime.
