Hold everything all in one venue.
You want to go ahead and save up a little bit of money on the side for the wedding venue that you have been planning to book out for the wedding so far? Then one smart money saving move for the venue would be for you to ask right off the bat if they are licensed to hold civil wedding ceremonies in their locations. If not, then you should probably think about picking out a place other than that because a church wedding is nice and all that on paper but you have to look into the realities of what that entails so far.
For example, you would have to think about the fact that there is a lag or some sort of gap between the ceremony and the reception and you need to take care of this one way or the other. You also need to think about the fact that having everything in one place means that you wouldn’t have to worry about shuttling people off from one place to the other. It is convenient, it saves time and more than that, it saves money somewhere along the way and this is what you ought to take into account as much as possible while you are at it. Your wedding photographer Nottingham might even end up charging you less given the fact that he has everything all in one go and your coordinators also don’t have to spend extra time and manpower in setting up two venues because they can all be joined in with just one location.
Be generous with the bridal gifts.
Make your inner wedding party feel excited and happy about the thought of helping you out in planning the wedding of the year so don’t be stingy with the gifts. It really is the least that you can do for them so far at the end of the day.
Feed your vendors.
Vendors like your wedding photographer Nottingham rely on inspiration and on creativity to follow through with their work and in order for them to be able to get maximum results so far. It can be a little hard to do that on an empty stomach.
Hold a no kids policy.
If you are going to implement such a policy out in the first place, then you need to make sure that you are able to go out of your way to make sure that it is something that will be uniform all across the board when it all comes down to it. Some of your wedding guests will end up feeling pissed off with the fact that you didn’t allow their kids to be brought over for the wedding and they happen to see other people there with their kids. It would be unfair and it will make you come off looking as if you have preferential treatment so far so do what you can about this. A no kids policy though can be a smart thing to go through with because you have less people to feed. Kids can be rowdy and they don’t really work well with rules so you can save yourself the hassle altogether by just opting for no kids in the first place.
