and, other unique ways to stretch your budget.
The reality is weddings can be really expensive and once Pinterest hit the market forget about it. So, the number one questions our clients struggle with is what to cut. . . or cut back on. Here at Heaven we will do our best to show you how a few simple pointers of shifting some expenses around!
Heaven Event Venue’s blank canvas gives you endless opportunities to create the wedding of your dreams that is within your budget!
Why do the weekends get all the love when it comes to wedding planning?
You could say that it is so those who work or need to travel to make it to your special day, but anyone who is interested in attending your wedding will make the time to be a part of such an important life event. By choosing an alternate day like a Tuesday or Thursday, many venues will work with couples at a reduced rate.
Mix it up a bit:
Nix all the high centerpieces and custom florals and try a few variations of height. This will not only save you money, it will create pleasing sight lines and dimension to your room.
Focus your lights to shine on the points that matter.
Spotlight the important showpieces like your cake and sweetheart table. Also, seek out package specials with your venue or DJ, Heaven has a state of the art lighting system, so already you are head of the game.
Design with a purpose, first work with what your venue already provides.
Special chairs in the lobby? Basic linen that simply needs a napkin upgrade? Utilize what is included before you blow your budget on items that aren’t necessary.
Think timeless not trendy.
When designing a wedding, keep it classic. One should not be able to tell in what decade the event has taken place. Remember those 80s dresses with the poof sleeves? (Point made) Plus timeless pieces can be more affordable.
Edit your list.
Focus on guests that mean the most to you and send out the invites in separate batches; immediate family and close family friends in one group, neighbors, parents’ guest list and acquainted friends in another and then your local bartender, new co- workers and so on.
Elope and have a stellar party when you get back.
Heaven is the perfect venue for everything to the wedding and reception itself, to an intimate celebration to gather together those near and dear to you, should you decide to elope and still want a night to remember.
