Save Money Planning Wedding Food

The cost of food and drinks for your wedding can be easy to climb up to several thousand dollars, but it does not work. Here are some tips that save money and still provide you you’ve always dreamed of with the stylish wedding:
1st The largest cost savings, whether you are using a caterer or planning the food itself, is the wedding and reception in a time of day when a full sit-down menu will be expected of the guests schedule. An afternoon / evening cocktail or dessert reception can save you thousands of dollars when compared with an elaborate dinner.
2nd Next, be smart when planning drinks for your reception. An open bar can break the bank. Consider a stylish champagne punch or wine instead of (or even a non-alcoholic punch). And remember that there are always less expensive to purchase and serve the drinks himself as a caterer or bartender to pay to do so.
3rd Secondly, alcohol is the largest food and beverage costs are generally meat for the wedding reception or dinner. Keeping meat to a minimum is another easy way to trim your wedding costs for food. The choice of a vegetarian entree, a dish whose main ingredient is not meat, or a less expensive cut of meat are all wise choices that will positively impact your food budget.
4th Another easy place to be to save money on the wedding cake. Bakers and caterers often charge anywhere from $ 2-6 to make a piece and / or serve the wedding cake. For about $ 1 apiece, you can buy a nice cake in a bakery and have a friend who cut and serve it at the reception.
5th If you are well organized and have a good support system of friends and family willing to help, you can also think about planning and making your own food for your reception. You can save several thousand dollars by it. And it’s not as difficult as you might think. Food for a dessert reception, for example, can be prepared in advance and served cold the day of the wedding with little effort on everyone’s part. For many brides, the extra work is worth the savings if it means more money for the honeymoon or the ability to afford to spend a designer wedding dress.
The food for your wedding is one of the easiest slash expenses, as long as the smart bride and groom host to a very nice affair. Be creative to ask questions, do not be afraid to ask for cheaper menu items, and so much you can handle yourselves as you, and you’ll be able to hundreds (if not thousands) of your wedding expenses for food to trim.
