Saving Money for the Big Day
3 November, 20103 November, 2010 1 comments Post Comments Uncategorized Uncategorized
Weddings can be quite expensive, and it is quite easy to go over your budget or have additional unexpected costs pop up.  Here are some ideas to still save for the Big Day without altering your lifestyle:

1. Use Sites like Groupon.com for date night - sites like this are great ways to still be able to go out for a date night with your fiancee without spending a lot of money, most of the coupons featured are for 50% off and there are usually limited restrictions on using Groupon.com.  Similar sites include restaurant.com where you can oftentimes pay $2 for a $25 coupon to a local restaurant; however these seem to have more restrictions put on them, so I guess you get what you pay for.  (Referral Code:  http://www.groupon.com/r/uu877307)    

2. Another idea if you like to enjoy a glass of wine while out on a dinner date, would be to check out local BYOB restaurants.  Usually the food is exceptional at these places, because they have to have good food in order to stay in business, especially since they do not have the liquor to profit off of.  I have never been disappointed with the food at any of the BYOB restaurants I have been too.  A lot of them are on the smaller side, so they tend to have a romantic atmosphere.  

3. If you are planning pre-wedding facials or other spa treatments.  Use sites like Lifebooker or living social (all like Groupon.com) to purchase discounted spa treatments, these also can be used for your big day as well! In addition, some of these sites allow you to purchase these deals for gifts, which would be great for manis and pedis for your bridesmaids!

4. Start packing a lunch!  For the price you pay to go out to lunch for one day, you can buy groceries to make your own lunches for the whole week.  In addition, homemade food is always healthier than eating out, and  less calories/healthier food = You will look more amazing in your dress

5. If possible walk or bike to work.  You save money on gas, and you burn more calories = You will look hot in your dress

Also, I have kind of a backwards way of saving, but it has worked well for me.  I put a certain amount of money directly into savings as soon as I get my paycheck, that way I am not tempted to spend it on other things that are not a priority.  Saving this way forces me to budget and live off the rest of my paycheck for the month.

    Be upfront with your vendors and let them know what your budget is for them? If they want your business they will work to meat your demand. I know I always do. A sale can always become available ;-)
