Before you begin trying to identify items to cut back on to save on your wedding, it’s important that you first know where you need to splurge. It’s only when you learn where to spend for the greatest return on your investment that you’ll know what can safely take a back seat. Here are 10 areas to consider spending freely on.
1. Splurge on the lighting
While you may not be able to afford a top-tier venue for your wedding, you could make up for the shortcomings of the place you get by bringing in imaginative lighting. When your guests arrive and are greeted with a space that is awash in beautiful lighting, they won’t notice any drab curtains, worn-out carpeting or dirty corners. You’ll need a lighting designer, though, who can arrange to rent decorative lights, chandeliers and other quality lighting.
