Can you stick to your wedding venue budget and host an unforgettable, luxury experience?

Secrets for Stretching Your Wedding Venue Budget

With some careful planning, you can have a fabulous dream wedding without investing beyond your means. Here are six smart secrets to saving on your venue budget.

No. 1: Plan for a Longer Engagement

A short engagement can be exciting, but also quite a drain on your wedding venue budget. If you’re rushed, vendor and facility availability may be limited – and you’ll end up spending top dollar to get what you want. Give yourself more time to plan, and you’ll have more opportunities to cut costs.

No. 2: Be Flexible with Your Wedding Date

If you start your event planning with an ironclad date in mind, you may have trouble booking your ideal wedding venue – the facility could already be booked for that day. Instead, provide the center with a few date options, and you’ll enjoy an attractive rate for a day they would like to fill.

No. 3: Opt for an Off-Peak Month

Different times of year come with different venue rental prices. Typically, you can expect to pay more if you book an event between May and September, the months with more favorable weather here in northern Utah. If you’re open to the idea of a fall, winter or early spring wedding, you can save on reception center rental fees.

No. 4: Consider a Weekday Wedding

Similarly, venue rental prices are higher for bookings on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Weekdays aren’t always ideal for events, as the schedules of your family members and friends might conflict. But, if your guests are able to attend a weekday wedding, you’ll spend less on venue rental fees.

No. 5: Choose a Dual-Purpose Wedding Venue

Having your ceremony and reception at the same facility is a great way to stretch your wedding venue budget – you won’t have to spend on decorations for two locations. To break up the event and keep your guests from feeling confined all day, choose a center with gorgeous outdoor gardens and expansive indoor spaces.

No. 6: Select an All-Inclusive Wedding Venue

You’ll see big savings if you select a facility that offers multiple services as part of an all-inclusive package. When professional wedding consultation, catering and bar service are provided in-house, you can be assured of superior quality at an affordable price. For a DJ, live band, photographer and other wedding vendors, your consultant can offer recommendations for budget-friendly locals that provide stellar service.
