What are some of the best ways to reduce the cost of your Hertfordshire wedding?

Published in General

Yes, yes – we know, and we agree. Weddings in Hertfordshire should never simply be about keeping your eyes glued to the bottom line. Furthermore, if you have chosen to get married in this beautiful corner of England, you are likely to have been driven to do so largely by sentimental matters, rather than mere considerations of saving pennies here and there.

However, there’s no getting away from the fact that weddings in Hertfordshire – as is the case for those elsewhere – can set you back serious money. So, we decided that here at Manor of Groves, we’d take a look at some of the steps you might take to lessen your own wedding expenditure.

First rule – prioritise what you and your beloved want!

It seems like an obvious point to make, but it’s one that must be emphasised from time to time, nonetheless. What you and your partner desire has to take precedence over what other people wish you to spend money on when planning a Hertfordshire wedding.

If, for instance, you and your betrothed are avid foodies, it makes sense to spend a larger proportion of your budget on the catering, or at least leave that area of your spending intact, and seek savings elsewhere.

Or if it’s strong visual memories of your wedding in the years to come that you especially wish to have, you might like to devote a good chunk of your expenditure to a brilliant photographer, videographer or both, while cutting what you’ve allocated to other aspects of your nuptials.

There’s almost always scope to save money

Once you have the sense of a ‘pecking order’ of what matters to you in a wedding and what generally doesn’t, you’ll be able to really zoom in on those ingenuous ways of slashing your costs.

You could, for example, swap professionally printed invitations for e-invitations accompanied by your own wedding website. Or perhaps you could serve your wedding cake as the dessert, instead of paying for a separate dessert? Booking a DJ instead of a band is another potentially great way to save money if you aren’t overly fussed about the evening entertainment.

Oh, and there’s one more great tip that we’d give to everyone thinking of situating their weddings in Hertfordshire – keep a lookout for cut-price deals offered by great venues! Our own Wedding In One Package, for example, is now available for remaining dates in 2019, and includes everything that you could require from your wedding venue for a seriously tempting price of £4,500.

Here at Manor of Groves, we’re big believers that weddings in Hertfordshire are the stuff of magic, however deep or shallow your pockets may be!
