London is a beautiful city and a perfect backdrop for a wedding. It is a home of some of the best wedding venues in the UK, from beautiful gardens to luxurious ballrooms that will make your special day that much more memorable. A lot of you might think a London wedding would be expensive, but there are ways to have a beautiful big day in the capital without breaking the bank…
Wedding deals and affordable venues
One of the best ways to save on a London wedding is to find a deal that suits your budget. Thankfully, you no longer have to visit wedding venues directly to get the best deals. You can now search for venues, compare amenities and even get the best deals possible from the comfort of your home. Online wedding deal websites such as UKWeddingSavings.co.uk now allow you to search for wedding deals and compare special offers directly. You can also discover more details about the different venues.
The best way to find a good deal on a venue is by having a clear budget in mind. You can then limit your search to affordable venues that are well within the predetermined budget. All you have to do next is choose the wedding deal that suits you best.
Save and splurge
Just because you want to keep the wedding affordable, doesn’t mean you have to settle for a less special day. You can have your dream wedding even when you’re on a tight budget. The key is knowing when to save and when to splurge.
For instance, you can find a venue that is affordable and still fits your wedding concept nicely. You should work the number of guests early, so you know what size venue you need. On other expenses such as catering and the wedding cake, on the other hand, you can allow yourself some room and choose the best.
Hold the ceremony and reception together
A great tip on having a London wedding on a budget is to combine the ceremony and reception into one event. You can save a lot of money this way by keeping the costs for vendors who are paid by the hour more affordable. You can also cut travel time and costs, along with making it easier for your guests too.
Combining the ceremony and reception also means you can save even more on the venue by using less décor, flowers and other wedding accessories. This tip alone will help you lower the cost for the whole event by as much as 40%, making your dream London wedding very affordable.
These are just some of the tips to help you get started planning your dream London wedding. Allow yourself enough time to research, choose and plan ahead all the details. Remember, there is a great fun in the preparation of your special day!
