How to Make Your Wedding More Affordable
Weddings are never cheap, but then again, it’s a wedding. For many couples, it’s a once in a lifetime event that you will remember forever. For others, they may experience it two or three times, but each one is as memorable as the last. No one should ever expect such an event to be “cheap,” but perhaps “less costly” would be a better way to think of it.
The question you’re asking yourself now is “how can I save money on my wedding without sacrificing quality?” The answer is simple – buy in bulk. There are some places that offer lower cost when you buy in bulk. For food and beverages, check with your local Sam’s Club. If you’re not a member, now’s a good time to become one, as you can save hundreds of dollars on food, drinks and more.
When it comes to buying quality gifts for members of your wedding party, or giveaways for all of your guests, check with a promotional products company. Promotional products companies often have a huge selection of gift and giveaway items ranging from stress balls to golf clubs for discounted prices, and they include personalized imprints to make the item more memorable. Need some custom engraved flasks for the men in your wedding party? Promotional products companies (like Quality Logo Products, of course) can offer a wide variety of metal flasks with personalized engraving for a very low price. They specialize in selling items in bulk so you can get large discounts from them by purchasing more of their items, and the minimum purchase quantities are a lot lower than you’d think. Look into it, because it’s crazy cool!
Most people don’t think of these kinds of things when putting together a wedding, but never, ever, EVER go to a high-end specialty store for gifts if you’re on a tight budget. It’s a huge waste of money! You could end up spending around 60-100 dollars per person on gifts, where you could be spending 8 – 20 dollars on an equally-good gift from a promotional products company.
And when it comes to food, why would you want to hire a caterer when you can purchase bulk amounts of food, trays, and all of your supplies from somewhere like Sam’s Club or Costco? You could set it all up the night before, saving yourself several hundred, or even thousands, of dollars – depending on the size of your wedding.
No matter how big or small your wedding is, you need to play it smart. Even a small wedding can end up costing way, way more than you ever thought you’d dish out. You really don’t want to get home after your wedding to sit down and think “Yay, we’re finally broke enough to enjoy marriage!” Marriage should be a fun and festive time, not the beginning of a long financial struggle leading to an even more expensive divorce. So bulk up and save money!
