Where you hold your wedding ceremony will create a certain feel for the rest of your wedding day. If you are trying to decide where to have your wedding ceremony, here are some cost saving tips for your wedding ceremony site.
Money Saving Tip #1 – Consider using a civic site. These sites—run by your city, town or municipality—are usually available for a very small fee. Think of the parks, gardens, and historical sites where you live, and consider a wedding ceremony there.
Money Saving Tip #2 – Many churches charge less for members, so you might consider becoming a member. Also, if you belong to a church, you might want to inquire into using another church in your diocese that may be grander or more elegant to give your wedding a different feel.
Money Saving Tip #3 – Ask your church or wedding site if they have any discounts available to you. Sometimes they have arrangements with wedding companies that give a discount to you if you are referred to them by the ceremony site.
Money Saving Tip #4 – Fees vary greatly from site to site, and it is worthwhile to phone around. Sometimes a large, beautiful church will charge more than a smaller church because their heating costs are higher. Take the time and make some phone calls.
Money Saving Tip #5 – It is quite easy for someone to become licensed to perform marriage ceremonies. It is possible a friend might become one, and perform your wedding ceremony as a wedding gift. You may even consider paying the small fee that they will pay to become licensed, as it would be much cheaper than hiring someone.
Trying to save money on your wedding might not be the most romantic notion, but it is practical and allows you to start your married life without the burden of a large wedding debt. Have fun, and create a beautiful day for yourself—without breaking the bank.
