How to Have an Awesome Wedding in the Terrible Economy

Written By: thinkeventsplanning - May• 22•11

As the economy of the world gets terrible, weddings must still go on…

So how does the average couple have a “Rock Star” Wedding in this Bad Economy?

Here are some tips that work:

1.  Did you know you can save tons of money when you get married on an off-peak day?

How about a Monday, Tuesday or a Wednesday for your wedding?
Most of your close friends and relatives will come to your wedding on any day of the week. They will love and support you on this your most important day.

When we got married 16 years, we did so on a Friday… It was almost unheard of, to get married on ‎a Friday, but now Friday is one of the most popular nights to get married on.

Friday night’s prices ‎surpassed Sunday’s by far, and are quickly catching up to Saturday night’s.‎

10 years ago, one of my very close friends got married on a Monday evening, at a 5 Star Hotel.

It was awesome, the venue was fabulous, and the cost was incredibly lower than any weekend night.

The best part of it all–it didn’t feel like a Monday at all!!!

2.  Save on that Designer Gown….

Every Bride wants to step out in a designer’s gown, but the bad economy make it a bit difficult for some to afford it.

Well did you know that most designers give their gowns to charitable organizations and thrift shops? Hey now you know…

We match you up with right Bridal design shop and also attend a fitting with you.

So what are you waiting for?

Make that appointment for your very own designers’ gown for $$ your guest will be speechless.

Now step out in your stunning designer dress, and blow your guest away!!!


3. One of the most important, if not the single most important way to CUT COST – The Guest List

Cut down your guest list!

Cutting your guest list in half gives you that much more spending money, which will allow you to  have that distinguished Celebrity Style Wedding!

If you are spending for example $400 per person on catering, and your guest list is at 250 guests, by your cut that list in 1/2,  you will save $50,000 on your catering.

And you will continue to save $$$ per person on every item.

Now that money could be applied into your hiring a professional planner or designer.

Another thing to remember – We the events planners have access  industry resources that you may never gain access to.

Which brings me to my fourth way in which to save in this economy.


4. Hire a Professional Wedding and Events Planner.

Industry Resources – We events planners have access to  industry resources, so you don’t have to do the research.
