Saving Money Part 1: Location, Location, Location

Times are tougher these days financially than we have seen in many years, but that doesn't mean you can't have the wedding of your dreams.  Part of my job as an event planner is to recommend alternatives to the things that my clients may want, but cannot really afford.  We all have a bottom line and know that compromise is key, but the word "budget" should not necessarily equal "sacrifice".  This summer I am going to do a series of blogs about little things that you can do to save some big bucks when planning your wedding so I hope that you will find it helpful and continue to check back for more!

Just like in real estatem, location is crucial when planning your special event.  If you belong to a church or synagogue, check to see if they have a social hall for your reception which often has a much lower price tag than most other places.  If that is not an option, having your ceremony and reception in the same venue (separate rooms of course) will help to eliminate certain costs like transportation for the bridal party and many times you can also get a complimentary suite for your wedding night.  Another consideration is to look in your own backyard.  Do you or someone you know have a beautifully landscaped area that is already decorated by Mother Nature?  This option for a ceremony comes with little to no cost.  One word of caution though, having the reception at your home will not necessarily save you money due to the cost of renting tables, chairs, tent, etc.  Just remember if an outdoor ceremony and/or reception is what you desire, have a back-up plan due to inclement weather.  Nothing can put a damper on your wedding day like being caught in a downpour!

I have been meaning to write something like this on one of my blogs and this has given me an idea. Cheers.
