Planning a NYC Wedding? Here Are Tips to Save Money on Your Wedding Day

It’s no secret that weddings can be incredibly expensive. The average couple easily spends tens of thousands on their wedding. For a day that passes by so quickly, this might seem like a ton of money to spend. Thankfully, there are ways to cut costs and save money on your wedding day. Consider some of the following tips.

1. Do Some Tasks Yourself

If you love flowers, but can’t imagine paying a florist, do the floral arrangements yourself or team up with a few of your bridesmaids.

2. Rent Out Accessories

If you want a stunning veil, but don’t want to shell out the money for one that you’ll keep, there are companies that offer wedding accessories for rent. You don’t have to invest a ton of money and get stuck with unnecessary items you’ll never use past the wedding day.

3. Tap into Your Network

If you have an aunt who makes amazing pound cakes, you can just purchase a faux wedding cake for decoration. Ask the caterer to cut up the real cake in the back and add a scoop of ice cream and berry compote on top. Wedding cakes can be extremely expensive, so that’s one less cost you’ll have to worry about. If your venue allows you to bring your own food, consider family members who can make amazing meals for large amounts of people. The food tends to be the biggest cost.

4. Choose an Unconventional Day

In terms of booking a venue, there are certain times when it’s more expensive to get married. Saturday tends to be the most expensive. A weekday tends to be the least expensive. It’s also more expensive to get married in the summer because the summer is considered the wedding season. Even making the choice to get married in the fall, winter or spring can be less expensive. Those who really want to be there will come.You can still create your dream wedding day and save money, especially since companies like To Have & To Borrow at provide great wedding accessories for rent. You can wow the crowd, enjoy the day and walk away with more money in your pocket to spend on the honeymoon or to put aside for your future home.
