Three Big Factors To Focus On To Save Money On Your Wedding

We all know weddings can be crazy expensive. And while small stuff like decorations or favours can add up, there are a few main factors that will determine your wedding’s price tag more than anything.

The average cost of a wedding in Australia is $36,200. That’s a lot of cash for a single day. Granted, it’s an important day, but Bankrate makes a good point: If you really want to trim your budget, these are the three areas you should focus on:

Your guest list: The number of people attending your wedding impacts everything from your rentals to your food. The fewer people, the cheaper everything else becomes.

Location: The cost of just about everything varies depending on your location — venue, entertainment, food, the list goes on. If you want to save a large amount of money, be strategic about where you choose to get married.

Time of year: When weddings are in demand, weddings will be more expensive. If you want to save cash, consider getting married off-peak.

It pays to focus your frugal efforts on the areas that will pay off most, and that’s sort of the idea here.
