Get a grip on the guest count.
If you don’t, you don’t really have a whole lot to go by with when you are talking to your wedding venue, your caterers, and the rest of all of the other vendors that you are planning to work with for the main wedding day. Sit down with your partner about this. You might want to go over all of the tentative people that you are planning to invite to the wedding so that you can come up with some sort of end number that you can give out to the wedding vendors that you are trying to book for the main wedding day so far. Don’t invite everyone in your contacts list. If there are people that you haven’t talked to or connected to in literally years, then there probably isn’t a need for you to contact them and invite them to your wedding so far. Imagine the amount of savings you will end up having.
Investigate other event dates.
They might coincide with your main wedding date and this can be a major problem for you and for everything that you have been planning out so far. It would be a really bad idea to have your wedding date coincide with a festival date or with some other major event in your town or city. Your wedding venue’s attention will be divided at best and you would be so much better off getting a date that isn’t as busy as the rest of the other ones during the year so far. This can be strategic especially for the Aberdeen wedding photography service you are booking out.
Check your credit.
If you have a fairly good credit standing or status so far, you might want to consider the possibility of charging certain expenses on a cash back credit card. A smart bride knows for sure that every little bit of savings can help out a lot, even if it is for a measly 1 to 2 percent or so. A good credit standing can go a long way. Request for an increase in your credit card limit early on so that you can make major purchases using it and save money somewhere along the way. See if you can charge your Aberdeen wedding photography fees to a major credit card so you can at least get a portion of your money back.
If you are happy with your wedding vendors, pay it forward. Although it would be impossible for you to knock back on the deals that have already been set in stone in the first place, you will surely have something on the side be it in the form of post wedding freebies and the like and this can make all of the difference in the world for as far as your expenses for the wedding are to be talked about. Plus, you get to know for sure that you really are helping your wedding vendors who are particularly great at what they do in the end of it all.
