The cost of planning a wedding can add up quick. There are ways to cut on the cost when planned right. From the season you have your wedding to the location of the reception. Everything you decide will determine how much your wedding will cost. For example, it is cheaper to have your reception on a week day rather than the weekend. Keeping your guest list small will save on catering expenses and also drinks if you decide to serve alcohol. You won’t need as many table’s, invitations, food and it will be a more intimate wedding with your closest relatives and friends. There is also a number of ways you can save on decorations. You can make your own or borrow items from family and friends. There are always cheaper options when planning a wedding while on a tight budget.
