When you’re planning a wedding, your budget is the first thing you have to consider. Knowing how much money you can spend on things like party rentals will help you make smart decisions about how to allocate your funds. Of course, every bride and groom wants to save as much on their budget as they can. No matter how much money you plan to spend on your wedding, these cost-savings tips will help.
Re-Examine Your Guest List
When you make your first version of your guest list, you’ll probably be surprised at just how quickly it gets much larger than you had imagined it would be. The savings of cutting just a few people from your list will add up quickly. Take a few passes through your list before you make the final version to see which names you can trim. Although there will always be people who have to have an invitation, your childhood friend whom you haven’t seen in a decade may not need to a spot on the list.
Rent Party Supplies
Party rentals, such as table linen rentals and chair rentals, can significantly cut the cost of your event. By renting supplies, you won’t have to invest in them outright and you can choose the items that meet both your theme and your budget. You may be surprised at the selection of party rentals that are available for all parts of your ceremony and reception.
Go for a Smaller Cake
Anyone who has ever shopped for a wedding cake knows just how expensive this part of your reception can be. Cut the costs on your cake by picking a small version of the cake you love and then getting multiple sheet cakes in the same flavor. The sheet cake can be cut in the kitchen and served to guests, and you’ll still get to create a cake table using the design you want, at a major savings.
