Be the ULTIMATE Budget Bride
The days of a simple chapel wedding with a cake and punch reception are practically extinct. Smaller weddings are averaging $4,200.00 according to Value Penguin and medium size weddings can be as much as $25,000.00. (We won’t kill you with larger wedding prices).
For brides and grooms that want to save money and still have an amazing wedding experience, here are some tips on being a budget bride or groom:
One Size Does NOT Fit All
Want a live band experience but don’t have the full live band budget? Book a smaller band with fewer pieces. You can still take advantage of the live band experience and save a coin or two.
2 For 1
When hiring a band you can often receive a discount if you book multiple services from the band, like ceremony & cocktail musicians. In many cases, the band member chosen to play is usually a part of the band you’re hiring. Ask your booking agent about these options. If you think of it later, you can always do an “add- on” to your contract.
Multitasking At Its Finest
If you’re not looking for a major lighting experience during your reception or you have a small venue don’t spend tons of money on lighting if you don’t have it. Most DJ’s and bands have uplighting included in their cost.
