After You Book Your Wedding Venue: How to Save Money on Your Wedding

Tips from Your Wedding Venue: Saving Money on Your Wedding

Your wedding venue will probably be one of your biggest expenses when planning your wedding. Of course, it’s also one of the most important parts of your wedding day. But after you’ve booked your wedding venue, you’ll probably be looking to save money elsewhere. Today in the Rocky Mount Event Center blog, we’ll discuss some ways you can save money on your wedding.

The Guest List

When choosing who you want to invite to your wedding, you can save a lot of money by being selective. The more people you have at your wedding, the more costly it’s going to be. With fewer people, you don’t have to make as many invitations, you don’t need as many tables, and you don’t have to spend more on catering. There are definitely a lot of benefits to making your wedding a smaller, more intimate event.


One of the best ways to save money on decorations is making them yourself. Making your own centerpieces will especially save you money, but it can be very time-consuming. If you don’t have the time to do this, you can also save money by getting seasonal or local flowers. If the florist has to import the flowers, it will definitely drive up your overall costs.

The Dress

Other than your wedding venue, your wedding dress can be a significant hit to your wedding budget. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to save money on your wedding dress. First, if you want to keep your wedding dress after the wedding, consider shopping designer sales. You can often save a good amount on a designer dress this way. If you’re not attached to the idea of keeping your wedding dress forever, you could always rent your dress. This is much cheaper than buying.
