The wedding flowers.
You don’t have to pay double for your wedding flowers when you have separate venues for your wedding ceremony and for your wedding reception party. You can use the same floral arrangements for both venues. Yup, it sounds unheard of but a lot of practical and wise brides have actually been doing this for the longest time running so far and this is why you should try to see if you can go ahead and figure things out just the same while you are at it. Once you have stepped out of the wedding ceremony, organize a crew, be it your wedding planner’s people or a group of really dedicated friends to quickly pack up the floral arrangements to be transferred to the wedding reception venue. It requires a bit of coordination and timing but then again, when you think about the amount of savings that you will end up with on your end; it will turn out to be well worth it in the end. It means that you will have more money on the side for other wedding necessities such as hiring out a professional wedding photographer Southampton and other needs you may have for the main wedding day so far.
The wedding dress.
Don’t go all out on a wedding dress just because it happens to have a label attached to it. This is one of the most common mistakes of brides everywhere so far. There are a lot of other more sensibly priced wedding dresses that won’t drill holes right through your pockets while you are at it. One really innovative way of picking out a wedding dress would be for you to look for something that has a detachable skirt. When you come to think about it, the idea is actually pretty genius. You can have the long skirt attached for the wedding ceremony and then have it detached and show up in something more casual during the wedding reception. And no, you don’t have to run to the dressing rooms for it. Just pull it out and voila! You are good to go. It will give your wedding photographer Southampton more material to work with and it will seem as if you have had costume changes during the day. It’s the perfect trick for as far as dresses are concerned.
The wedding venue.
In order for you to really stretch your budget out some more, one thing that you can try would be for you to opt for an all inclusive wedding venue. The term technically refers to venues that are licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies so it means that you will be allowed to hold the ceremony and the wedding reception all in one go. You can opt out of the hassle of having to shuttle guests from one location to the other and you might even be able to cut some discounts somewhere along the way.
The wedding cake.
If you want a towering tiered cake, you can actually just go for a real base and fake the upper tiers. It won’t cost you as much money in the process and you can always get a basic sheet cake cut up in the bag to give out to your guests. Another way around this would be for you to get your cake professionally cut and packaged as wedding favors that you know for sure your guests will be able to appreciate.
