Wedding season across the country is traditionally the summer months of June, July, and August, but for those of us in the Phoenix, Arizona area, our year-round gorgeous weather means any time is a good time to get married. With all of the celebrity weddings in the news this time of year, though, it can make even the most frugal of brides long for a lavish event. With a little planning and organizing, you can get that million-dollar wedding at a fraction of the cost.
As soon as you know that you’re heading down the aisle, it’s time to start planning for the big day. Why? Often, rental facilities will charge less with abundant notice, as will your photographer, videographer, and DJ. You’ll also have time to track down deals on wedding attire and choose not only the perfect location for the ceremony and reception but the best honeymoon destination.
Some brides plan their wedding a year in advance, and that is probably the ideal situation, but with six months of hard work, you can create a stunning event that will have all of your guests wondering how much you spent.
Pick Your Teams
It takes a lot of people to create a dream wedding. You have your facility manager, caterer, DJ or band, photographer, videographer, and wedding party, and that’s just to start! There are so many behind-the-scenes components that many people overlook. If you’re planning your wedding on a budget, you’ll likely rent a lot of the items you need to make it a success. Wedding rentals will save you a lot of money and hassle, so choose a Phoenix rental company for your table and chair rentals as well as your dance floor rental. Dance floor, you say? Yes. If you’re having your wedding in a hall or in your backyard, you need a sturdy floor on which your guests can easily cut a rug. And of course, they can’t dance all night long, so tables, chairs, and linens are a requirement as well.
Scour the Sales
For the DIY bride and groom, sales will make a huge difference in finding the best bargains. When small items (e.g., favors and flowers) are on sale, it’s a good idea to stock up. Michaels and Oriental Trading Company are great for such deals. Also, keep an eye on sites such as Groupon and Living Social for local discounts on all of the services you’ll need for the wedding. Of course, be sure that the expiration date is far enough in the future to accommodate your wedding date!
No matter what season you plan to wed your special someone, you can do it in style and with less money. Just have your ducks in a row and your “I do” will follow.
