Make the most of your wedding budget

All couples want to stretch their dollar. Here are some tips from wedding planner Denise Georgiou-Newell, of weddingsjubilee.com:

  • Hire a wedding planner. Not only do they have an amazing network of suppliers that can provide true added value to their packages, but planners also provide personalized service and fulfill the couple's needs and wishes, distributing their budget accordingly and wisely.
  • Have a Sunday wedding. "It will cut your costs on venue and alcohol, as people tend to drink a lot less if they have to work the next day. That way you can still go more extravagant on your design aspects, wedding favours, entertainment, food etc. For even more savings have a daytime brunch-style wedding," adds Georgiou-Newell.
  • Go to trunk sales, wedding shows and keep your eye open for off-season sales when shopping for your wedding dress. You can get your dream dress for a fraction of the original cost.
  • Save on your bar. Instead of a seven-hour open bar, decrease it to four hours or have a consumption bar. You can serve a signature drink during cocktail hour, wine only during dinner and open the bar for the dance portion only.
  • Give away one favour per couple, not one per guest.
