First, as a bride you need to learn this word if you want to save some money: “DYI” which stands for “Do It Yourself”. Impossible to save money without learning this word!
Usually South Florida’s weather is very nice depending on the season. Do a little research on some outdoor venue during the day.
Formula: Outdoor = less $$$ + Daytime = less $$$
If you are renting chairs for your wedding ceremony, if possible use those same chairs for your reception. It will save the money of having to rent them for both venues.
There many formats online for your Wedding Invitations. From Google Images or from any other website where you can purchase images, get a wedding invitation template, then edit it with own information on “Paint” (a program used to edit images installed in most computer already), save it. Go to Office Depot or any other place similar to this one and tell them to print it for you. Try to print most of the invitations on one page, it usually fits 4 or 2 depending on the size you want. Buy your own envelopes and that is it.
South Florida is one of the most popular states when it comes to weddings, so you need to be strategic on which day and time your choosing to get married. I mentioned it before, weddings during the day are usually cheaper. Weddings on a Saturday are more expensive, Fridays are more affordable and Thursdays even more.
SIT DOWN DINNER OR BUFFET STYLE?
Simple, most venues offer better prices when it is a Buffet Style Reception. Why? Less man-power! In a Sit Down Dinner you need at least 7 servers or more, while in a Buffet you only need around 3 of them.
