3 Ways to Save on Your Wedding

July 20, 2016

One of the best parts of our job is working with amazing and unique couples to plan their big day! It’s no secret that weddings can be expensive but after 17 years in the business we’ve learned a few tricks for lowering costs here and there. If you’re planning a wedding, or know someone who is, you’ll want to read (and probably write down!) these savvy cost-cutting tips from our Director of Sales, Reese Rowe.

  1. Choose an off-peak day. A Friday wedding can save you money on the venue and on your weekday rehearsal dinner. Even better: a Sunday wedding. Site fees can be much less, plus food and beverage minimums are lower, which is great for smaller weddings.Ways to Save_1
  2. Eliminate labor-intensive specialty foods like sushi rolls from your catering menu. They require more staff to prepare, which will likely increase your bill.Ways to Save_3
  3. One of the biggest ways to save on catering is to swap out a traditional plated dinner for a family-style spread. Family-style allows you to keep the formality of a coursed dinner while spending less per person. Another perk is it creates a great experience for your guests to interact and dine together.
