- Wedding: January 2011
I’m not an expert in weddings but from what I have experienced so far, it seems to work. For those of you who have not started looking, keep in mind these possible savings opportunities:
Cake –if you just want a simple cake, instead of “wedding cake”, ask for “retirement cake”! that will save some money.
Also, ask the bakery if they’ll be willing to loan you a cake stand for free, negotiate!
Venues – if you book with a hotel, or any venue, they will give you a minimum spending level for the amount of your guests. Most hotels can expand in guest size — so if you have 200 guests, tell them 150 when you sign the contract so you aren’t stuck with a high minimum spending requirement. Just make sure you can add more guests tho
Bridal stores dress– this is an important one girls – ALWAYS ALWAYS ask if they can give you a discount. Most places have such high profit margin, they can give you a 10% discount. It’s not much but better than nothing.
If i think of more i’ll add to this list~ good luck everyone!
