Tips For Saving Money on Wedding Site

Savvy Community: Select a Naturally Beautiful Wedding Spot

Reader MandyWH shared this savvy wedding decor tip in our How Do You Save? group.

I loved Runningesq’s great advice earlier this week to stay away from wedding dresses that have to be completely overhauled; the same principle applies to your ceremony and reception sites! A blank-slate reception hall will most likely be cheaper, but once you consider the cost of decking it out to your liking, are you really coming out ahead? Although the venue rental fee may be higher, a spot with natural beauty will save you time, energy, and money in the long run.

My ceremony and reception were in a garden filled with flowers and trees, and it was such a relief not to have to think much about decorating the space. The venue even let us choose fresh flowers from the garden to use as centerpieces on our reception tables! Highly recommend going that route.

If you are planning a wedding, or have planned one in the past, I want to know your secrets! Help future brides out by posting your tips and ideas in our How Do You Save? group. Your own precious tips could be featured on the site and help tons of other savvy brides plan their own dream weddings!
