Budget savvy bride Jessica offers her guidelines to maintain your wedding budget intact even as you plan your wedding day and party budget. If you’re a bride on a budget, this is the perfect place to be heard! Don’t miss that important information packed episode yet! Wedding planning really can be quite expensive and if you aren’t aware of how much your budget will actually wind up costing you, then it’s probably too late to do anything about it. This is especially true if you are the type of bride who is all “fingers and toes”. Jessica goes over several good ways to save money on your wedding, which includes everything from having your groom pay for the wedding, to not having anyone to attend the ceremony (including yourself) and to cutting out any wedding or reception favors.
On this particular edition of the budget savvy bride podcast, Jessica talks about how brides often get so caught up in decorating for their wedding that they completely forget about the most important part: what the wedding reception looks like! By the time the bride and groom sit down to have their first conversation after their wedding, the reception is usually well under way and they have all sorts of decorations and party favors going. However, by the end of the night, you’ll find that most of the tables have been cleared as people walk around and take pictures of the newlyweds. While you may think that this is a good idea, it can quickly start to turn into a nightmare. While the guests may appreciate having the chance to take photos, it’s often difficult for them to find a place to go after the party is over. As a result, the cost of things like a band, food, drinks, etc.
Hopefully, you’ll catch some great advice on how to be a budget-savvy bride and groom. Wedding planning doesn’t have to be super expensive and nor should it be. Instead, a bride and groom that are organized can make great savings by making the best decisions possible. By finding the right combination of services (such as a wedding planner and a photographer) as well as the right products (such as pre-made centerpieces), you’ll be able to keep expenses down while making the most of your reception budget.
