Money Saving Tips for Your Smokies Wedding

  1. Ask for a group discount at your hotel/resort.
  2. Schedule the wedding off-season.  November through April are less popular for weddings and can save you big bucks with vendors.
  3. Consider a Friday night or a Sunday wedding.  You can get discounts on venues, florists and more by choosing one of these days.
  4. Decrease your guest list.  A small intimate wedding may sound romantic and could keep you from busting the budget.
  5. Choose an all-inclusive venue.  If places already get discounts from their vendors it could shave quite a bit off your bill.
  6. Negotiate.  Some vendors will stay firm on their price, but it never hurts to ask!
  7. Cut down the size of your cake.  Consider a smaller wedding cake for cutting and have the guests served from sheet cakes in the back.
  8. Printing can get pricey, so instead of including a map in each invitation, encourage guests to go to your website for directions.
  9. Put together a playlist of your favorite tunes on your iPod to play at the reception instead of hiring a DJ.
  10. Choose in-season flowers. Your blooms will still be beautiful and you'll have more money to spend on the honeymoon!
