Low Budget Wedding Venue Ideas

6 Great Ideas For Cutting Your Wedding Venue Costs in Half

  1. Instead of having a venue for the ceremony and another for the reception, combine them and have one venue for both!  
  2. Have an early morning wedding followed by a reception brunch instead of an all-day and night party.
  3. Book a weekday rather than a weekend day
  4. Book out of season, this is usually winter, colder months of the year
  5. Source a newly opened venue looking for clients, offering deals
  6. Pay in full in advance, generally lower prices can be negotiated this way
