One of the most challenging parts of getting your wedding to be exactly what you want it to be is the cost. Being price conscious and wanting your dream day haven’t traditionally gone hand in hand. But that problem should be no more. We are going to take a look here at some of the ways you can save money on your wedding day so that you can pay out on the things you really want like the best bridal makeup or the most up-market suits.

Photography

It a surprising expense to anyone who has never booked a photographer before, but the cost of hiring someone to document your day can be right up there with the highest of fees for your wedding day. Of course, you want someone there to capture the perfect moments and to ensure you have memories that will last you a lifetime in a 6x10, but you should ask yourself some important questions before going ahead and booking a photographer:
  • How long do you want them for?
Often photographers charge for the number of hours they are due to be at the venue(s) and therefore the price can be quite high. Consider what you want documented by a professional and speak to them about working out different arrangements.
  • What photographs do you want?
It might seem like something that the photographer should know with it being their profession, but so many people want different photographs that it can be a tricky situation to navigate. Think about how many shots of guests you want and whether or not you just want the professional to capture the arranged or posed for moments.

Remember that these days everyone and their dog has a camera, and although the quality of their content won’t meet that of a photographer they will be capturing moments like the evening and reception for you. If you are looking to save on costs, consider hiring a photographer for the ceremony and a couple of photographs after the nuptials rather than a full day. You could even buy some disposable cameras to encourage your guests to capture more intimate details of the day.

Entertainment

Another traditionally high cost is that of the evening entertainment. Bands and DJs have been staples of the wedding circuit for years and years, but their days might be numbered. While hiring a live band is often a choice made because of a love for the atmosphere they create, a DJ is more than likely hired as a matter of necessity to have someone present to dictate the evening’s dancing and singing.

Well, thanks to the growth of online streaming applications you are now able to create your own music playlist for far cheaper than hiring a DJ. That means you can build your own playlist and make it perfect for your evening, or ask a family member to be in charge of music. Either way you are able to ensure your guests hear the songs they want to dance to, and without the expense of a DJ.
