Cutting corners to reduce your wedding budget

Here are some simple tips to make the overall cost of your wedding smaller!

save on paper and get online

This century is all about the Internet! Use it! Design your wedding website and send your invites and save the date emails from there. This also can result in a really useful tool for guests to see what will be happening.

Another way to save on printings is by making large boards the day of the wedding rather than individual printings – dinner menu, order if service, table plan, etc.

time of the year

Think off-peak season and save thousands. The low season of the summer (May and October), as well as choosing a weekday, are always good at reducing expenses. Also, by holding your ceremony and reception in one spot you are saving on transport expenses and gaining valuable time with those who matter the most!


Include non-florals, like pompoms, paper lanterns, etc. And if you have friends and family who are happy with doing the set up then you’ll make a big saver.
Homemade details such as bunting are both: beautiful and very personal and can be done on a minimum spend keeping your wedding costs Ibiza under control.

wedding cake

Your wedding is not going to be a traditional wedding, so an easy to reduce cost is your wedding cake. If you really do want a cake you can order a small on or even bring this with you from your home-country. (I have seen this before and it is not wrong!)

where not to cut corners

Allow a part of your general budget (15%-20%) towards your wedding photographer/videographer and wedding planner. A good way of reducing costs here if your favorite ones are too expensive is asking them if they work with associates that can result as good and at a better price. Remember that photos will stay with you for a lifetime, so it is not worth cutting corners there. You are better off by saving on any other aspect.
