If you are planning to have your wedding during the winter season, it is much easier to limit your budget when you know where exactly to cut down. You should involve professional wedding planners if you want to save down on your winter wedding cost because they have many years of planning such weddings. Here are some of the tips these professionals will offer:
Decorations: Having a cheap wedding in winter does not mean it has to look cheap. With some creativity, you can make it spectacular regardless of the budget you are working with. The most costly thing you will do is to hire a designer to plan, buy and decorate the venue. Regardless of the theme of your wedding, it is often best to keep everything simple. For instance, instead of elaborate centrepieces and lighting, you can use several glass bowls filled with water and floating candles.
Flowers: Generally, the winter season is dull and boring but the use of flowers can brighten up the entire place. Hence, it is vital to pay careful attention to the kind of flowers you want to use. Normally, the planner will make a few suggestions but it is up to you to choose what you want. Amaryllis, jasmine, tulips and daffodils are all cheaper during the winter. Additionally, consider adding some seasonal and holly plants to your flower arrangement.
Reception venue: The most popular wedding venues during winter are reception halls. These allow the guests to focus on your wedding rather than the snow and the cold. The cost of hiring a reception hall during winter is usually high but with a good company, you can get a great deal. The venue should be well arranged and organized. Usually, the planner will be in charge of this as well so you have little to worry about as you prepare to take that step.
