Myself and my fiancé have visited a wedding venue which we both fell in love with. Unfortunately this is outside our budget with other main things to buy outside of the venue (dress, photographer). What should I do from here when looking at other venues when I've found my dream wedding venue?
you could check to see if different times of the year are cheaper with your favourite venue? look for similar style venues in your area, before we found our favourite venue we had no clue it existed until we looked through bridal magazines in our area. good luck planning your special day !
Can you try and negotiate with your dream venue? Sometimes they might be able to reduce the prices. Worth giving it a go.
You either have to completely forget about it. And start looking at places within your budget and I promise you will have the same dream day.
Or could you speak to your venue and see if there are things you can do o make it cheaper. We did this! We didn’t have canapés we asked them to give us a simpler menu which was 1/2 price per person. And we still had the best day. Good luck. X
have a later ceremony to cut out meal just have canapés after ceremony and drinks reception before heading straight into eve reception with food - could save thousands by only paying for one meal for everyone
We found our dream venue. We was a little clueless to how much we had for a budget but we negotiated with food. So for example we saved around 300£ just on desert by using our wedding cake and they said they will give us complimentary tea and coffee with that. It's just the little things that really do help. Good luck your have a fab day xx
If it's really the dream venue i would hold off a little longer and save more xx
