10 Simple Ways To Cut Wedding Costs & Stay Within Your Budget



Now that the average wedding comes with a $31,213 price tag, it’s not uncommon for couples to seek out ways to make their Big Day more affordable. And while we’re all for saving a few bucks whenever possible, there is a fine line between cutting costs and cutting corners, especially when it comes to your Big Day. No one wants a tacky wedding that considers the bottom line first and guests second, so it’s important to know when to save and when to spend.

These ten tips are a great place to start to ensure that you stay within your budget without sacrificing the quality or style of your wedding.

You’ve probably heard a few of the suggestions before (like having your wedding on a Friday instead of a Saturday and skipping a formal plated dinner), but there are a handful of unexpected tips here that you’ll want to make note of, too.
