Yes, you’ve successfully saved up for your wedding – congratulations! Now it’s time to plan all the details. Hey, who wouldn’t love to save even more while you are going through the wedding expenses? This of course, can really be done without shortchanging the biggest day of your life. Ready for this?
The Thankyou team gathered around and discussed the perfect alternatives and ways to save money on weddings. Here’s what we thought:
Go for a DJ instead of a multi-piece band.
According to the Real Weddings Study, the average cost of a wedding band in 2012 was $3,084, while a DJ’s average cost is around $998. Even if you don’t do the math, you’d know just by looking at the figures that you are likely to bank big savings if you hire a DJ. Plus, hiring a band would also slightly increase your catering expenses. Wedding meals can cost around $50-$75 per person and even more sometimes for bigger and more lavish celebrations.
