Even if you have never planned a wedding before, chances are you know that they are normally quite expensive! Whilst organising the venue, photographer, food, entertainment, etc., the expenses can very quickly rise into the tens of thousands of pounds. However, there are a few nifty ideas that can help you save money on your wedding, and ensure you don’t blow through all of your savings.

Use Voucher Codes

Most people in the UK use voucher codes and coupons on a regular basis, whether you are trying to get free delivery from your favourite fashion retailer, or get a great deal from your local takeaway. However, you might be surprised to learn that voucher codes can often be found for wedding related services. From flowers to wedding makeup, you can normally find a great deal on all your wedding needs. With massive savings, such as up to 50% off First Choice discount codes, you can also have the honeymoon of your dreams for less than you think.

Consider Used

There are a lot of items that can be purchased from eBay and similar sites that will help you keep your wedding costs down. There are many items that couples purchase for their big day that they may not want to keep or need after the wedding. Some examples include chair coverings, decorations, mailboxes, collapsible candy carts, giant games, etc. If you do enough searching, you may even be able to get some items for free.

Hire Newcomers

Everyone has to start out at some point. New venues regularly open, new photographers enter the profession every day, and there are plenty of people making career changes to start providing wedding entertainment. Not only do newcomers provide cheaper rates, but their equipment is normally newer, which can have benefits. It is important to consider that there may be a few hiccups, but you should still expect a great service.

Book Early

Wedding suppliers regularly review and increase their prices. Increased demand and experience results inĀ inflated prices, so if you find a supplier or photographer who you like, we strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. Some suppliers even rewards clients with special discounts if they book far in advance,.

Try Off-Peak

As you might expect, businesses that cater to the wedding industry will be more likely to provide a preferential rate if you choose a date that isn’t likely to be booked otherwise. There is a lot of competition in the wedding industry, so you can generally snap up a bargain if you choose to get married during off-peak times.
