How To Save Money On Your Wedding Venue
Looking for ways to reduce your wedding venue budget? Keep reading to find out what our top tricks and tips are.
1. Consider wedding in the off-peak season
Everybody knows that the cost of any wedding venue varies during the year. Summer and spring months are more in demand as compared to winter and autumn dates and as a result, you pay a premium for getting married in summer. Also, a lot of couples choose to get married in summer because this is when most venues will be looking their best. This also comes at a premium. If you do not mind a winter wedding or are looking for a way to get a top-dollar venue at a fraction of the usual cost price, consider having your wedding in winter or other off-peak dates.
2. Choose a date that is not too far off
Many couples choose to book their weddings well in advance so that they can have ample time to do their wedding preps. Dates that are close to the current one are usually cheaper because not many couples can deal with the stress that comes with planning a whole wedding in 6 weeks. If, however, you are up to the challenge and are willing to go the extra mile to make your wedding perfect on a short timeline and with major savings to boot, consider looking around to see if your top wedding venue choices have any dates in the near future available.
3. Avoid a Saturday wedding
For many people, Saturday is synonymous with weddings and for that reason, wedding venues charge more for weddings that are held on Saturdays. If you are not too attached to the idea of having a Saturday wedding, consider having one during the week or on a Sunday and you may get a hefty discount. The best part of choosing a weekday to have your wedding is that you get the same venue, the same staff, the same quality service at a fraction of the price.
Here are a few more ideas for you:
- Have your ceremony and reception in the same location. This can cut your wedding venue costs by almost half.
- Choose a venue that has accommodation for your wedding guests.
- Get your negotiation hat on and ask for a discount
