Weddings are very expensive and it is easy to go overboard. Most people are not able to stay within their planned budgets when it comes to planning a wedding. Choosing a cheap wedding venue will help you save costs to spend on other areas of your wedding.
Choosing the right venue for your wedding is an important decision. Just because you may decide to go with an inexpensive wedding venue, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still have an elegant and classy wedding.
So what is important when shopping for a cheap wedding venue? While there are many factors, the most important include the types of venues and the strategies to save costs.
Options For Cheap Wedding Venues
Currently my little sister is planning a wedding at my parent’s house. My parents live on a 3 acre wooded lot on a hill with water below. This is one of the best options when looking for cheap wedding venues. Simply plan the wedding at a parent, sibling, or friend’s house. You can offer to compensate them for using their property, but obviously in most cases they won’t accept it. When discussing cheap wedding venue options, obviously a free wedding venue is best. If you are close to someone with beautiful acreage or landscape, consider talking to them about using their property for a cheap wedding venue.
When searching for a cheap place to have your wedding, look for alternative wedding venue options Think about a public park especially if you can find one that has an amphitheater in the park or some sort of ceremony area. You can always come up with your own inexpensive options like where you first met each other, a local vineyard, or even a local hotel. They may charge you a smaller fee for these non-traditional wedding venues, but it should be much smaller and more negotiable than the huge popular cathedral.
Negotiating For A Cheap Wedding Venue
Try to negotiate your price when searching for a wedding venue. If you end up with a wedding venue that charges you a fee make sure you tell them that you are on a budget and try to negotiate your rate. After all, you are choosing their venue because it is a cheap venue right? Many of the alternative wedding locations will be cheaper than the traditional more popular venues, and they will probably be more likely to negotiate their rates as well.
Alternative Scheduling For Inexpensive Wedding Venues
Try alternative scheduling to plan your wedding. If you are planning your wedding on a budget you might want to plan your wedding during the month when it typically not “wedding season”. Wedding Venues will be cheaper typically during January through March and also earlier in December before the holidays. Weekdays are obviously going to be less expensive when trying to secure a cheap wedding venue. Most venues prices will be higher on Friday through Sunday.
