A wedding is an expensive event. Many couples save money for the wedding for years. There are several ways to save money while preparing for the celebration. To arrange a morning wedding is one of them. Besides the fact that morning weddings are extremely romantic and gentle, they are less expensive. Morning weddings are an excellent opportunity to hold a cheap but festive event. How can you save money on a morning wedding?
1. Wedding venues are cheaper. Morning hours are considered unpopular; so, the rate of wedding locations is lower in the morning. Usually, wedding venues are booked for evenings, and at that period, prices are extremely high. If you choose to arrange a morning wedding, you can be sure that you’ll get the desired venue cheaper. Moreover, you can choose any date. For example, if you want to hold the celebration in a hot season (summer), then it is necessary to book a venue a few months before. In the case of a morning wedding, any location will be free, and a couple will be able to rent any desired location.
2. An opportunity to reduce prices. As you know that you choose non-standard time for the celebration, you can negotiate for reducing prices for wedding services. Do not be shy and ask wedding vendors to cut costs. A morning wedding is rather an exception than a norm; thus, feel free to ask for a discount. In any case, they don’t beat for demand.
3. A breakfast menu is cheaper. You’ll save money on catering if you choose a breakfast menu instead of a traditional three-meal dinner menu. You can give preference to a stand-up meal. Put bacon, toasts, eggs, waffles, hash browns on tables and let guests create their dish themselves. Choosing portioned cupcakes for each invitee will be an excellent idea of how to replace a traditional wedding cake.
4. Save money on hard drinks. There is no need to buy a wide diversity of alcoholic beverages to create a bar. Drinking hard drinks in the morning is a bad sign. However, it is necessary to celebrate the joy of the creation of a new family. In this case, you can pour some Champaign in glasses and offer them to guests. This will be enough.
Apart from these pros, there is one more obvious advantage. A morning wedding is a great chance to take stunning photos against a sunrise. Newlyweds will look marvelous in their wedding outfits and drown in the rays of the sun. A skilled photographer will be able to catch the most touching moments and take romantic photos.
