How to Save Money On A Wedding!

by admin

First comes love, then comes marriage and then paying for the wedding. I’m sure you’ve already guessed it by now why no one writes fairy tales about the latter! 

While Pakistan has been witnessing economic challenges in recent days, and how Imran Khan has made everything costlier. The room/house rent, the food, the electricity, the Shaadi halls and almost every other thing has become expensive. Most people are now scared that they might end up paying taxes on getting married. Well, thankfully that’s not happened yet, but you never know. With everything being so expensive most maybe wondering how to pull off the wedding of your dreams without breaking the bank. 

I know I have don’t have to say this being a pure Pakistani but don’t hesitate to negotiate on everything. AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.


 Don’t Get Married In The Wedding Season

Try not to get married at off-peak wedding times, especially November, early December. You can also avoid weekends. Just think “off season” for your wedding date. Plus food and beverage minimums are lower. You’ll save money! 


Avoid Weekends

Since Saturday is the most popular day of the week for weddings, it’s also the most expensive. And no one said “Saturday in June” wedding couples have a lot more fun than the others!


The Food

Keep it simple. Don’t compromise quality over quantity. It is better to serve limited dishes rather than confuse your guests to choose what to eat. 


Right Venue

Try to book venues with in-house catering options as this will significantly bring down your cost of renting the venue. Most venues offer great deals for mid-week weddings, as well as off-season dates and not to brag but we can totally help you with it.


Ditch Multiple Venues for Events

Host your wedding and reception at the same venue, hosting both your events at the same venue will cost less but why have multiple events? Just one is fine, Think about it.


The Invitations

Go paperless! You can send invitations online for free with Joy! A wedding website that also lets you manage your guest list and track RSVPs! 


Save on Photography

Opt for a digital album rather than choosing a physical one. Avoiding prints can help you save a lot of money. Book the photographer for only eight to ten hours instead of a full day. Just go for one photographer rather than two and don’t be shy, let them know what your budget is from the get go.


We Have The Perfect Idea

Why not create a wedding website? Have your formal invitation, but save on costs, by including all the important details such as maps, directions, transport and accommodation on your wedding website. The beauty of it is that it doesn’t have to cost a thing! That’s exactly where we can help, the all-in-one package show.

Now everyone wants to be ready for the big day, and these moments need to be captured, the bride and the groom will be looking their best, your photos have spent days planning for the right Jora to wear to outdo the mother of the bride. Such an occasion begs for these moments to be caught on camera, that’s why it’s so important to choose the right photographer for your wedding. Finding the right photographer is not an easy task, but lucky for you, we’re here to help.

Remember these points when looking for one…


The photographer him/herself

Working with the right photographer is important after all he or she will be spending days with you and your family at events and possibly even smaller get together. You need to be able to understand each other. Look for a photographer that will make this job personal.  Ask them for their portfolios, see their work and make sure to be satisfied with their work before bringing them on the job. Every photographer has his/her own style and that might not work for everyone. So take a little effort and figure out what works for you. Sit him down ask for his time and figure out exactly what you need from your pictures and what moments he should look out for. It’s a good idea to be on the same page before the wedding.


Equipment & Gear

At the end of the day it’s the photographer that needs to be skilled but that doesn’t mean you should not take into consideration the equipment and gear your photographer is using. After all you wouldn’t want to spend all that money and just let it go to waste. Looking at the kind of glass they use really tells you how much your photographers invested into his craft to get the best results. See what lights he’s bringing for flash photography and portraits of course this means you need to know a bit about photography. It might seem like a daunting task but a little research can really help you understand what you’re paying for and what you’re getting.


His team

No matter how skilled your photographer is, he can’t be everywhere. Usually your photographer will bring some assistants too, so that they can get more coverage, and usually that works out fine. Again, let us stress that you should know what you’re paying for. If possible, do request to see the pictures his/her assistants have taken besides the main pictures that photographer will show you because, usually he’ll want to score a client by showing his main portraits.
