Save Money while Making Your Wedding Memorable

Save Money While Making Your Wedding Memorable

December 3, 2021

Your wedding is a special day, a once-in-a-lifetime event. You want it to be memorable, and you want to spend it with those who mean the most to you.

The average wedding costs $19,000, but you can spend much less than that and still have a memorable day in Fresco, CA, to share with your friends and family. Premier Bride offers some tips to help you keep your wedding budget under control.

Use Your Backyard

You’ll save money when you host your wedding in your backyard. It’s a space you own or rent already, so you won’t have to pay for the expense of renting a church or a hall, which can cost you hundreds to over a thousand dollars.

As you search for the ideal location for your nuptials, strive for an open area. Make sure you look around for any dying, dead, or diseased trees, and then research tree removal services to rid your yard of them. Not only will the space look more appealing, but tree removal can also ensure all your guests stay safe.

Fortunately, when you choose a professional tree removal service, they’ll have the correct tools and equipment for the job.

When searching, be sure to ask if they’re licensed and insured. Read online reviews to help you narrow your search down to at least three contractors. Then, get a quote in writing. Inquire if disposal and stump grinding is included.

Make Changes That Can Enhance Property Value

If you’re making major changes, you should strive to make upgrades that’ll also increase home value. For instance, consider refinishing your basement to create a seating area, just in case it rains on your wedding day.

Think about upgrading your flooring. If you expect people to come in and out of your home, you probably don’t want carpeting. Select laminate or wood instead.

Pick and Choose Your Catering

Choose to cater your own wedding or pick and choose the items you get from a caterer. There are a number of caterers who specialize in smaller sized gatherings. Share the cuisine from your favorite restaurants and personalize your wedding menus. Instead of making fancy dishes, think spaghetti and meatballs, barbecue foods, or fried chicken with a baked potato bar. Choose foods that many people like but won’t break the bank.

Do you have family cookie or cake recipes that are always a hit at parties? Use them for your wedding, and let a bakery handle your wedding cake.

Lighting That Sparkles

Add ground lighting up walkways to keep people safe once nightfall hits and to increase the ambiance.

If you feel like your indoor or outdoor lighting is lacking for the wedding, consider adding white twinkle lights. They’re small and white, so they look classy. You can often purchase twinkle lights at dollar stores or superstores cheaply.

Use Decor You Already Have

Search your home for decor that guests always compliment. Use pictures of you and your significant other. Find items that look rustic, and use your indoor plants or even artificial plants or flowers to craft centerpieces.
