If you’re planning a wedding, there is no doubt that you want everything to go by smoothly. However, even though you wish for everything to be just perfect, sometimes something causes us to start thinking the other way than we did before; be it because of the lack of money, be it because of our disenfranchisement with the process. So, if you are one of the people guessing how to save up some money this is the article for you. We are going to show you some ways you can save up on your wedding suppliers in a few simple steps.
First of all, most people think that the wedding suppliers are only the people that supply the wedding with food, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Of course, those people are suppliers, but as are the countless others, including the wedding photographers, the car suppliers, the waiters, etc. So, how to save on them?
The Wedding Photographer
Being a photographer is no easy task, but let’s face it, it’s no hard task either. Pretty much everyone can do it, and if you have a camera and a friend who knows a little something about operating it, you’ve got yourself a wedding photographer. Of course, the wedding photographs aren’t going to be really professional, but hay, at least you haven’t spent any money on them.
The Food Supplier
If you have a friend or a family member that just loves cooking, you can save a lot of money on the food suppliers. Just have that friend or a family member (or more of them) do it for you. Then, that just leaves the small bits and pieces such as personalised love hearts to purchase in order to add that personal touch to your wedding. In fact, in some countries, this is the custom, and no food suppliers from outside of the circle are being hired; everything stays inside the circle. Also, this gives you the opportunity to brag about having all that food made by a person so close to you. And who knows, it might even be a great start in that person’s food catering career!
When it comes to the CO2 cylinders behind the bar, make sure they have been bought from reputable suppliers in order to ensure the beer quality is at its highest.
The Car Supplier
Who said that you only have to drive around in a limousine after the wedding. Can’t you just spell out the “just married” message on your own car? And in fact, driving around and doing this on your own car makes the wedding day a lot more intimate. After all, you’re doing it in something that’s yours and that you’re connected with, and not some rented car that will never be able to store all the wedding memories.
Look Up Other Tips
There are numerous wedding-themed magazines and websites around, and you can look into one of those for some help with organizing weddings. One of the best ones nowadays seems to be The Wedding Guide, which is a basically a textbook of weddings and wedding-related themes. Take a peak in it, and see other ways to save up on your wedding suppliers or for anything else related to weddings.
