It’s often said that the meal is the most important part of a wedding, so you’ll want to make sure you have the best wedding caterers Lincoln has to offer on your big day. Of course, with any wedding, there are places you may want to spend and places you may want to save, especially as research shows that weddings have increased in cost by 9.6 per cent year on year.
These creative saving ideas from one of London’s top wedding planners from the Standard may give you food for thought for your plans.
When it comes to a wedding breakfast, you don’t have to stick to tradition. Simplify the meal and use canapés as starters and wedding cake as dessert, says award winning wedding planner Louise Perry.
Picking a certain time of day to host the wedding can also provide savings: “Things like making the celebration later in the day, so you only give guests bowl food. That can still be elegant but it is more like a party,” she says.
When it comes to a venue, finding one that will allow ‘dry hire’ may prove more cost-effective, though you’ll have to put in the work to source staff separately. Also, finding more unusual venues for the likes of the ceremony might give you a lower cost, meaning you can get the reception venue of your dreams.
Choosing foliage and branches over flowers is very on-trend, but it’ll also save you lots on expensive blooms. You could also consider sending digital invites instead of costly paper ones.Tags: wedding caterers lincoln
