Wedding is a grand occasion. Everyone wants to have a beautiful memorable wedding celebration since it is supposed to be a once in a life time event. Once a marriage proposal has been made and accepted, the planning for the wedding starts. The couple will have to first fix a date for the wedding.
Some couples want a simple no fuss wedding celebration with just their family members, relatives, and some close friends, while others want their wedding celebration to be a grand one. To avoid all the fuss, some will hire a wedding planner. Depending on your budget, the wedding planner will take care of everything from A to Z, including the wedding rentals such as the venue for the ceremony and reception, tables and chairs, linen, dinnerware, lounge furniture, food, and etc.
You will need a venue to hold the wedding ceremony and reception because everything else hinges on the venue. Instead of renting separate place for wedding ceremony and reception, you can decide to hold the ceremony and reception together in one place. It is also convenient both for the hosts and the guests.
These days, most wedding planners offer “wedding packages” where everything such as venue, decorations, food, cake, and other services are included in the chosen package. These packages help to cut cost and with the saving, the money could be used for other payment.
Traditionally, most weddings are held on the weekends. It is common and convenient, and it is also more expensive to get married on Saturdays and Sundays. Bookings for San Diego wedding rentals on weekdays are very much cheaper because not many weddings are being held on weekdays. With cheaper rates, you can get to enjoy more spacious venue, greater view, and better facilities.
Deciding to hold wedding ceremony and reception in small town instead of big city will give you better deals. Prices are usually higher in big cities compared to small towns. Guests would also enjoy driving away from the city to avoid the traffic congestion to relax and get some fresh air.
Another way to cut cost is to have an outdoor wedding ceremony in the morning. Serving brunch or lunch at the reception in a garden setting is much cheaper than serving a dinner in rented venue in the city. Plus, the newly married couple and their guests could have the rest of the day for themselves.
