Frugal Tip for the Day!
Frugal wedding tip:
Find an intimate venue. All the components that make up a wedding reception can be incredibly expensive. With the average price to rent a wedding venue now at $1,200+, the bride on a strict budget could be in a financial bind. Usually, the cheapest places to have your guests mingle are at small restaurants or gathering places outside the city limits, as well as at Foreign Legion halls, and city, county, and state park sites.
The perks? With a smaller wedding you save big bucks on food, alcohol, cake, flowers, and decor in your total budget. Or you can splurge on Steak and Lobster for 50 instead of 200! In return the settings are often much more intimate, and you get more bang for your buck so to speak.
Wedding budget impact: you save $1,200 and up on your budget!
