It’s no secret that weddings can be an expensive affair. With couples spending an average of £30,000 on their big day, it’s understandable that brides and grooms are always on the lookout for ways to save. Luckily, there are a number of ways you can cut costs without making huge sacrifices for your wedding in Gibraltar.
1. Make the most of your friends and family
If you know any budding musicians or friends with a great eye for photos, put them to work! Your guests will be delighted to help in any way they can, and some will be happy to offer assistance as their wedding gift to you.
2. Look for second-hand items
Dresses, suits and rings can all add up to an eye-watering amount of money. Grab a bargain by looking through second-hand markets and vintage shops. After all, most wedding dresses are only worn once! If there is a family heirloom that you can use as a wedding ring, this is a great way to cut back on your budget and add a personal touch to your jewellery.
3. Get married out of season
A Saturday in July is going to cost you a lot more than a weekday in winter. Consider holding your special day on a less popular date. If you’re getting married in Gibraltar, January weddings will still be a lot warmer than most months in the UK!
4. Do it yourself
Getting your hands dirty and doing things yourself is a great way to save money, but it’s also an opportunity to have some fun. If you love getting creative, making your own invitations, decorations and favours is an easy way to cut costs.
5. Combine your wedding and honeymoon
If your budget can’t stretch to a wedding and a honeymoon, why not combine the two? A destination wedding is the perfect solution, and Sweet Gibraltar Weddings has all the experience and expertise to make your Gibraltar wedding the best day of your lives.
By following these tips, you can have the wedding you’ve always dreamed of at a price you can afford.
