Summertime is one of the best times to get married — the weather is sunny and bright, a lot of delicious food is in season, and everyone wants to be outside. But, since summer is peak season to get married, planning the festivity can be quite expensive. With a little creativity, however, you’ll be able to have your dream summertime wedding without having to break your budget.
Here are some tips and tricks that will help you save money on your summertime wedding!
Use paper products instead of fancy china
Lugging around expensive china can be a hassle that you don’t want to do on your big day, so eliminate this stress altogether by choosing paper products! You can buy sturdy paper plates, napkins, and plastic silverware in bulk and save bundles in the process.
Look for free venues
You don’t always need an expensive venue to get married outside. Getting married in a public park or even in a family member’s backyard is completely free and can give you the small yet scenic venue you’re craving at no price!
Pick your own flowers
Wedding flowers can be exceptionally expensive and run you thousands of dollars in the hole. Pick your own wildflowers yourself and arrange them into bouquets and you’ll save money while customizing your own look and feel. If you don’t know where to look, ask around to see if your family members or friends have any flowers they can contribute.
Invest in wedding and party rentals
Using event tent rentals for your wedding, especially an outdoor festivity, is great as you won’t have to purchase things you don’t need. Event tent rentals include everything from linens and decor to chairs and tables, so you can return everything at the end of the day and not worry about a thing.
Keep with a theme
As a general rule of thumb, you should choose three main colors for your theme and carry those colors all throughout the event. Using the same colors for accessories such as napkins, plates, and balloons is a great way to save on costs as you can buy more in bulk.
Using these simple tips and tricks will help you save money so you can have a great wedding without breaking the bank!
