Draw up a Strategic Plan

One of the best ways to stay within a budget is to draw up a strategic wedding day budget plan. It should map out how much you are willing to spend on each aspect of the wedding. Using your researching skills, compile lists on different parts of the wedding, and limit the costs of each. Include categories like the venue, catering, alcohol and entertainment. Don’t forget to factor in the groom’s suit, the groomsmen outfits or the bridesmaids dresses.

When it comes to wedding day alcohol, food, entertainment and the venue, we offer each of our guests comprehensive, all-inclusive packages to help give them everything they need, without too much worry about the costs.

Research Online and Offline

Many brides and grooms have a preferred way of doing things, often either shopping online or offline. But you can score yourself the best deals by widening your search and exploring vendors, shops, services, and boutiques that might be a little off the beaten track. There’s a wide variety of options available.

Look for packaged deals

Many wedding vendors, and all the best venues, offer wedding day packages to help a bride and groom keep costs down on their big day. Packaged deals for each aspect of your wedding can easily be found with a simple Google search. Take the time to compare different offers and don’t just settle for the first or second deal you find.

Go with a wedding planner

A wedding planner can not only help plan you a gorgeous wedding, but they can also help you to stick to your budget. If you are interested in investing in a great wedding planner, then why not take a look at the wedding planning services that we offer at Country House Weddings?

Think DIY

Going the DIY route can be one of the best ways to save on your wedding day costs. Many brides and grooms may make their own wedding decorations, or opt for handmade gifts for members of the wedding party. Alternatively, a bride may have a family member that’s skilled with a needle, who can help her embellish her veil, bodice or skirt. Opting for DIY when it comes to the smaller aspects of your wedding day can be a great way to stay within your wedding day budget.
