Saving Money On Your Program

Go big on the programs.

This can be a bit costly when you add things up and this is something that you can actually opt out of. Most of the hotels and the other wedding venues out there actually have big chalkboards or something that is fairly similar to that. You can have your coordinator or a few people that you can trust to write down your wedding program for you so that they have a point of reference and so that they have a chance to go ahead and follow through with the events of the day while they are at it. Most of the boards being offered out by the wedding venues usually offer this out as a freebie for the clients that book them which technically mean that you have very little to worry about in terms of costs and expenses and the like.

DIY your photo booth.

Your photo booth is something that can really make your wedding fun and whimsical and you should play things up a bit. However, it comes as no secret at all that photo booths can cost an awful lot of money and if you just don’t have the kind of cash to wing it, you can actually do the photo booth yourself. If you are resourceful enough, there are a lot of articles available on the internet that will show you how things are supposed to get done. You can be creative and you can play around with the theme as much as you would like to. It doesn’t even cost that much money. If you have friends who have the right equipment, you can borrow or you can rent it out for a fairly discounted rate. Mind you, this should never be a substitute to hiring out a professional Edinburgh wedding photographer because that should be a given. You should never opt out of getting your wedding photos professionally done. If you do, you will soon find that you will eventually regret it.

Negotiate your meal prices.

If you just go ahead and take things based on face value, you might never get the best rates and every bride should strive to make sure that she gets the best rates as much as possible, whether she has the money to burn or not. There are a lot of alternative meal choices that can be just as hearty without the ensuing costs. You just need to talk to your caterers about finding said options.

Go easy on the wedding favors.

Have a few that your Edinburgh wedding photographer can take photos of. They don’t have to be given out to all the guests and they don’t have to be anything overly expensive either. Be practical because at the end of the day, this isn’t the only thing that your guests will be aiming their attentions to. If you have some extras on the side, then go ahead and splurge on it but if you don’t, you really don’t have to pressure yourself into anything.
