Congratulations on tying the knot! You’ve been waiting for this day your whole life and now that all is said and done, you’ve got lots of planning ahead of you. Trust us when we tell you that it’s all too easy to watch hundreds or even thousands of dollars fly right out the window when it comes to planning for the big day. But with the simple tips below, you can keep some green in your wallet so you can start thinking about moving out of your parents’ house and purchase the perfect starter home for you and your significant other.
Stop Eating Out So Often: we understand that you’re going to be busy, tired and stressed, but eating out multiple nights a week can really take a toll on your wallet. Consider planning out your meals for the week ahead of time and only purchase the groceries you need for each meal. You’ll be amazed at how much food you can buy at the supermarket for the same amount it would cost to you eat dinner at a restaurant once or twice a week.
Skip The Salon: sure, you can still go to a professional for a haircut prior to your wedding day, but you can probably tackle your nails, your makeup, and your hygiene routines yourself. We do recommend giving it a go a few days or weeks prior to your wedding day so you become more comfortable with the processes and so you can learn from your mistakes before showing up to a crowd full of people.
Cut Out Some Of Your Monthly Expenses: are you paying for premium movie channels on your cable bill? When was the last time you actually went to the gym? Are you paying somebody to clean your home? These are all things you can probably do away with which will amount to lots of savings at the end of the month.
Set Up Direct Deposit: determine how much money you want to spend each month and stick to your budget. Set up an account so the rest of your income goes directly into the bank and don’t touch it! Think of it as “out of sight, out of mind” and you’ll be happy to find hundreds or even thousands of dollars in the account that you’ll be able to spend on your wedding or put towards the down payment on a house.
Truly one of the most important days of your life, we understand the need to have this special time be as stress free and seamless as possible – from the planning stages to the big day. The dedicated wedding planners at David’s Soundview Catering will make your wedding day dreams come true.
